Fetal lung fluid & urine make amniotic fluid, right? So what caused oligohydramnios?

How alveloe in lungs fills with fluid by bacterial infection during pneumonia ?

How alveloe in lungs fills with fluid by bacterial infection during pneumonia ?

Pneumonia: The fluid filling the alveolus, secondary to infection, is quite simply pus/ purulence that develops as white blood cells kill the infectant. A good amount of damage to alveolar cells also occurs due to proteins released from white blood cells designed to recruit more cells to area of infection, creating breaks in cell lining. This causes increased swelling/ fluid leak into air spaces. ...Read more

Have fluid behind ears/ pressure/jaw pain. Dr. said no infection and prescribed Flonase. Will this cause a brain abscess, osteomyelitis or sepsis?

Have fluid  behind ears/ pressure/jaw pain. Dr. said no infection and prescribed Flonase. Will this cause a brain abscess, osteomyelitis or sepsis?

All of the things: you mention are infections. If you have negative pressure or uninfected fluid in your middle ears spaces, there is no infection that could spread. The Flonase is to reduce swelling & edema of mucous membranes of your upper respiratory tract, thus allowing your Eustachian tubes to become patent, or open, again at their junction with your nasopharynx & middle ear pressure to normalize. ...Read more
