Why is it possible to get Nargleroa Fowleri from city tap water? Doesn't chlorine kill it?

Why is it possible to get Nargleroa Fowleri from city tap water? Doesn't chlorine kill it?

Not from tap water: Many things are possible in life. The chances of catching brain-eating amoeba from tap water in the U.S. is so unlikely that the answer is "no". If the water's chlorination or disinfection became inadequate, it's possible that Naegleria could survive in that water. The level of chlorination should remain high enough all the way to one's tap, as Naegleria cysts are somewhat resistant to chlorine. ...Read more

Does chlorine in tap water kill Naegleria Fowleri? I get water up my nose when showering. I heard you can get PAM from tap water.

Does chlorine in tap water kill Naegleria Fowleri? I get water up my nose when showering. I heard you can get PAM from tap water.

You heard wrong: Chlorine kills Naegleria, but even unchlorinated tap water probably never transmits it. All cases are acquired in warm water outdoors, typically in stagnant lakes or pools, mostly in the southern US. Usually there are under 10 cases each year in the entire country. This is an extraordinarily rare infection that you shouldn't worry about if you don't swim in such places. ...Read more

I M 22 VIRGIN.Does getting vaginal candidiasis frequently cause infertility? Is it due to exercising alot in gym?

No: Candidiasis is not something you catch. It is commonly related to antibiotic exposure or diabetes as an overgrowth of normal yeast already present. Most of the time the diagnosis is made by DR lacking in nuanced knowledge of intertrigo and other genital events related to exercise and sexual activity. Answer to your question requires much more detail about it. How have you been treated? ...Read more
