Herpes labialis

Herpes labialis known as cold sores, is a type of infection by the herpes simplex virus that affects the lip. Symptoms include a burning pain followed by small blisters or sores; the first attack may be accompanied by fever, sore throat, enlarged lymph nodes. The rash heals within 10 days, but the virus remains dormant in the trigeminal ganglion; the virus may periodically reactivate to create another outbreak of sores in the lip. The cause is herpes simplex virus type 1 and herpes simplex virus type 2; the infection is spread between people by direct non-sexual contact. Attacks can be triggered by sunlight, psychological stress, or a menstrual period. Direct contact with the genitals can result in genital herpes. Diagnosis is based on symptoms but can be confirmed with specific testing. Prevention includes avoiding kissing or using the personal items of a person, infected. A zinc oxide, anesthetic, or antiviral cream appears to decrease the duration of symptoms by a small amount. Antiviral medications may decrease the frequency of outbreaks.

About 2.5 per 1000 people are affected with outbreaks in any given year. After one episode about 33% of people develop subsequent episodes. Onset occurring in those less than 20 years old and 80% develop antibodies for the virus by this age. In those with recurrent outbreaks, these happen less than three times a year; the frequency of outbreaks decreases over time. The term labia means "lip". Herpes labialis does not refer to the labia of the genitals, though the origin of the word is the same; when the viral infection affects both face and mouth, the broader term orofacial herpes is used, whereas herpetic stomatitis describes infection of the mouth specifically. Herpes infections show no symptoms; the main symptom of oral infection is inflammation of the mucosa of the cheek and gums—known as acute herpetic gingivostomatitis—which occurs within 5–10 days of infection. Other symptoms may develop, including headache, nausea and painful ulcers—sometimes confused with canker sores—fever, sore throat.

Primary HSV infection in adolescents manifests as severe pharyngitis with lesions developing on the cheek and gums. Some individuals develop difficulty in swollen lymph nodes. Primary HSV infections in adults results in pharyngitis similar to that observed in glandular fever, but gingivostomatitis is less likely. Recurrent oral infection is more common with HSV-1 infections than with HSV-2. Symptoms progress in a series of eight stages: Latent: The remission period. Asymptomatic shedding of contagious virus particles can occur during this stage. Prodromal: Symptoms precede a recurrence. Symptoms begin with tingling and reddening of the skin around the infected site; this stage can last from a few days to a few hours preceding the physical manifestation of an infection and is the best time to start treatment. Inflammation: Virus begins reproducing and infecting cells at the end of the nerve; the healthy cells react to the invasion with swelling and redness displayed as symptoms of infection. Pre-sore: This stage is defined by the appearance of tiny, inflamed papules and vesicles that may itch and are painfully sensitive to touch.

In time, these fluid-filled blisters form a cluster on the lip tissue, the area between the lip and skin, can occur on the nose and cheeks. Open lesion: This is the most painful and contagious of the stages. All the tiny vesicles break open and merge to create one big, weeping ulcer. Fluids are discharged from blood vessels and inflamed tissue; this watery discharge is teeming with active viral particles and is contagious. Depending on the severity, one may develop a fever and swollen lymph glands under the jaw. Crusting: A honey/golden crust starts to form from the syrupy exudate; this yellowish or brown crust or scab is not made of active virus but from blood serum containing useful proteins such as immunoglobulins. This appears; the sore is still painful at this stage, more painful, however, is the constant cracking of the scab as one moves or stretches their lips, as in smiling or eating. Virus-filled fluid will still ooze out of the sore through any cracks. Healing: New skin begins to form underneath the scab as the virus retreats into latency.

A series of scabs will form over the sore, each one smaller than the last. During this phase irritation and some pain are common. Post-scab: A reddish area may linger at the site of viral infection as the destroyed cells are regenerated. Virus shedding can still occur during this stage; the recurrent infection is thus called herpes simplex labialis. Rare reinfections occur inside the mouth affecting the gums, alveolar ridge, hard palate, the back of the tongue accompanied by herpes labialis. A lesion caused by herpes simplex can occur in the corner of the mouth and be mistaken for angular cheilitis of another cause. Sometimes termed "angular herpes simplex". A cold sore at the corner of the mouth behaves to elsewhere on the lips. Rather than utilizing antifungal creams, angular herpes simplex is treated in the same way a

William John Ferguson

William John Ferguson was an Australian politician. Born in Redruth in South Australia to smelter James Boyce Ferguson and Barbara Robinson, he attended primary school before becoming an engine driver and journalist in South Australia's mining districts, subsequently moving to Broken Hill, where he married Elizabeth Poole. He would remarry on 8 December 1927 Lily Gertrude Hanks at Marrickville. In October 1892, following his involvement in the Broken Hill strike, Ferguson was gaoled for "conspiracy", was released in July 1893. An early member of the Australian Workers' Union and the Political Labor League, Ferguson was elected to the New South Wales Legislative Assembly in 1894 as the member for Sturt. Although he became president of the local council of the Australian Labor Federation in 1899, Ferguson's independent behaviour in the Assembly led to his disendorsement in 1901, he moved to Queensland, dying in Brisbane in 1935

Peter Newell (architect)

Peter Newell was an Australian architect, who worked in the modernist tradition in Queensland and became an architectural critic. Peter Edward Newell was born on 30 September 1916 in Victoria, he trained as an architect in Melbourne, graduating with his B. Arch from the University of Melbourne, he was a member of the editorial committee of the Royal Victorian Institute of Architects Students' Society journals, Smudges in 1937, along with Robin Boyd and Roy Simpson. In 1939 he proposed that work be reestablished on developing plans for small homes and this was picked up the Royal Victorian Institute of architects Small Homes Service. Newell enlisted in the Australian Army Engineers in 1942, he graduated from the School of Military Engineering in Sydney and spent some of his military service during World War II in Queensland. He remained in Queensland following the War, he was discharged with the rank of Captain and married Betty Thelander in 1945. Newell worked for the firm of Addison and McDonald.

He worked for Chambers and Ford, which became Ford and Newell in 1951 when he became a director in the firm. The partnership existed between 1951-1975; the Newell family moved to the suburb of St Lucia in Brisbane, where the University of Queensland had relocated.. Newell used his own residence as a means of reaching clients attracted to his design aesthetic, he was instrumental in the modernist movement influencing the design of Queensland homes. He designed homes in Brisbane and the Gold Coast of Queensland with designs that were moving away from elevated Queenslanders to ones which were constructed on a slab, integrated indoor and outdoor living and used overhanging eaves to provide for outdoor terraces. Newell lectured part time at the University of Queensland in the 1960's. Newell wrote several books describing the architecture of Queensland. Robin Boyd remarked that Newell introduced the Victorian tradition of painting exterior brickwork on Brisbane homes, influencing colour in homes in suburbs such as St Lucia.

Newell took his Masters in Architecture from the University of Queensland in 1988, with a thesis entitled The House in Queensland: From First Settlement to 1985. He died on 21 May 2010 in Queensland. Five boxes of Newell's papers are held in the University of Queensland Fryer Library. Many of his plans and drawings are held in the Fryer Library collection.
