Anthrax is an infectious disease that usually affects farm animals like cattle, sheep and goats. Humans get infested by coming in contact with the infected farm animals or products contaminated with anthrax. Anthrax is caused by a bacterium called Bacillus anthracis. These bacteria form germs covered by a shell which is called as spore.
These spores can survive under the soil for years and they cause anthrax only when they enter the body. Through skin cuts or abrasions, the infection enters the body. What initially looks like an insect bite might later develop into a painless ulcer and lead to swelling of adjacent areas. Symptoms include breathing problems, inflammation of intestinal tract with signs of nausea, abdominal pain, fever, severe diarrhoea and loss of appetite. Here are some herbal remedies for anthrax:
