What is prophylaxis?
Asked by Shirdi | 4th Aug, 2014, 05:11: PM
Prophylaxis is a measure taken to maintain health which prevents the spread of disease. It is the first step in a medical treatment. For example, when we are having some dental problem, the doctors first advise prophylactic treatment such as cleaning of the teeth and then proceeds for the actual problem treatment.
