More About
Diphtheria

Symptoms of diphtheria may include a thick, grey coating on the throat and tonsils, difficulty swallowing and speaking, fever, and swollen glands in the neck. In severe cases, diphtheria can lead to breathing problems and heart failure.
Diphtheria can be prevented with a vaccine. The diphtheria vaccine is usually given as part of the combination vaccine, which also protects against several other diseases. The vaccine is part of the national vaccination programme.
If you suspect that you or a family member may have diphtheria, it is important to seek medical attention as soon as possible. Diphtheria can be treated with antibiotics, but early treatment is important to prevent serious complications.
It is important to keep up with vaccination schedules to help prevent the spread of diphtheria and other infectious diseases. If you are not sure if you are up to date on your vaccines, you should talk to your doctor.
