Attention: Tampons are associated with Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS). TSS is a rare but serious illness that may be fatal. Read and save the enclosed information about TSS and the use of tampons.
About Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS):
Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS) is a rare, but serious disease that can be fatal. It is caused by toxins produced by the Staphylococcus aureus bacterium, which can be found in the nose and vagina. TSS can occur in men, women and children. About half of all cases occur in women and girls during menstruation. The risk of TSS is associated with the use of tampons. It is more likely to occur in adolescents and women under 30, than in older women. It is very important to diagnose and treat these symptoms early.
Symptoms: TSS may occur at any time during or just after menstruation. Its spread is rapid, while it can present itself with symptoms of influenza or another serious illness, which can be fatal. The warning signs of TSS are listed below, but may not all appear at the same time:
- Sudden and high fever, usually above 39°C, nausea and/or vomiting, severe flu symptoms, sore throat, rash mimicking sunburn, dizziness, myalgia, fainting or fainting spells when standing up.
In later stages of the disease, peeling of the skin may occur. If you notice one or more of these symptoms and use a tampon, you should remove the tampon immediately and contact your doctor for immediate medical attention. Inform your doctor if you have used tampons and are concerned about TSS. If you had TSS in the past, there is a chance that you will present with it again. If you have had TSS symptoms in the past, you should consult your doctor before using tampons again.
Ways to reduce the risk of TSS:
You can reduce the risk of developing TSS by using a sanitary pad instead of a tampon, for at least once a day during menstruation, while also using tampons with the minimum absorbency needed to meet your needs. You can also eliminate the risk of menstrual TSS by not using any tampons.
Do not flush in the toilet, as it may reach rivers and beaches.
