Diff, or Clostridium Difficile, is an extremely dangerous disease caused by a bacterial infection. Highly contagious from one person or animal to another and extremely hard to eradicate with common household cleaning agents, it’s important to have an area infected with this bacteria professionally cleaned right away before others become infected. If not thoroughly eradicated from an environment, the C. Diff bacteria can live outside of a host for 70-90 days and infect countless other people and pets.
Symptoms of C. Diff
People who are more likely to become infected with the C. Diff bacteria are those taking antibiotics or people who have been in hospitals or healthcare facilities. Sometimes a person can be a carrier of the bacteria and not have any symptoms themselves but are still able to infect others. If someone does come down with C. Diff, symptoms can include:
- abdominal cramping and pain
- rapid heart rate
- blood in stool
- loss of appetite
- swollen abdomen
The best way to fight C. Diff is good disease prevention. To protect yourself and those you love, always take the following precautions
- Thoroughly and regularly wash your hands with hot water and soap
- Don’t handle anything a C. Diff patient has touched or go into their enclosed space before it’s properly cleaned and disinfected
- Never share any medical equipment
- If a person infected with C. Diff has been in your school, business, or home, call for professional cleaning right away.
