Stay at Home
  • If you live alone and you have symptoms of coronavirus illness (COVID-19), however mild, stay at home for 7 days from when your symptoms started. (See ending isolation section below for more information)
  • If you live with others and you or one of them have symptoms of coronavirus, then all household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill
  • It is likely that people living within a household will infect each other or be infected already. Staying at home for 14 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community
  • For anyone in the household who starts displaying symptoms, they need to stay at home for 7 days from when the symptoms appeared, regardless of what day they are on in the original 14 day isolation period. (See ending isolation section below for more information
  • If you can, move any vulnerable individuals (such as the elderly and those with underlying health conditions) out of your home, to stay with friends or family for the duration of the home isolation period

Dangers of Mouthwash

The Daily Mirror headline was as follows: 'Experts warn using mouthwashes more than twice a day can give you cancer.'

I decided to have a look at this research and you can hear me on Insight Radio Freeview 730 talking about it.

It was an European study that looked at people diagnosed with oral cancer and they had found that the people with the poorest dental hygiene and that included the use of dentures and those who had bleeding gums had more than double the risk of mouth cancer than people who had excellent oral health.

We know that excess alcohol intake increases the risk of cancer but the study did not prove that the alcohol in the mouthwash was to blame.

Certainly if people were using more mouthwash to hide poor dental hygiene then that would be a factor.

Alcohol can have an adverse effect on the lining of the mouth so that's why I tend to recommend an alcohol free mouthwash. The one I use is called eliminator and information on it can be found on my websitewww.newlifehealthcare.co.ukThe main message from this story is make sure you give yourself the best oral health possible-brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing and visiting the dentist every 6 months. Using an alcohol containg mouthwash does not initself cause cancer but poor dental hygiene does increase the risk.
