The doctor suggested that the child (son, 4 years) be vaccinated against chickenpox. A friend says that it is better to get chickenpox, then immunity will last a lifetime.
Maybe it is really better to wait until he recovers?
It is always easier to prevent a disease than to cure it. In addition, it is impossible to foresee in advance how hard the child will be ill and whether complications will develop. There are cases when chicken pox occurs with a prolonged high temperature rise, which is difficult to treat antipyretic drugs, with abundant rashes not only on the skin, but also on the mucous membranes.
Difficult to eat because of the pain in the mouth. It is necessary to remember about the most serious complication of varicella – encephalitis (inflammation of the brain).
This can be avoided by vaccination. Vaccination does not protect the child against chickenpox by 100%, but the disease will proceed in a very mild and erased form.
My four-year-old son recently began to smell like urine. I see no other problems.
With what it can be connected?
There may be several reasons: insufficient fluid intake during the day, urinary tract infection, some kidney diseases. To clarify the diagnosis, consult your pediatrician.
If necessary, he will appoint an additional examination. In any case, pay attention to how much and what the child drinks.
Basically it should be water. At four years old, the baby must drink an average of at least 1 l per day.
A SON LEARNS TO GO, BUT THAT AND THE BUSINESS FALLS, FREQUENTLY BURNS HIS HEAD, SOMETIMES KILLS THE CONS. I scare EVERY TIME, BECAUSE I CAN’T DEFINE, HOW DID A SERIOUS IMPACT WAS.
How to understand this?
While the baby learns to walk, the fall is inevitable. If the child fell and hit, a loud but short cry suggests that everything is in order. It is necessary to sound the alarm when the baby loses consciousness after being struck or looks sluggish, goes limp in the arms of an adult or, on the contrary, cries too long and inconsolably when a hematoma or a wound occurs at the site of injury.
This is a reason to consult a doctor. Only a doctor can determine how dangerous the injury is.
My daughter was stomatitis at 7 months. After treatment, the red sores were gone, but there were still divorces in the tongue (now, the daughter is 10 months).
I process the language “Stomatofit”. How long should this be done and what else can you do to make the divorces disappear?
Babies often have such a phenomenon as “geographical language”. It does not require special treatment.
If during the examination the doctor did not see other abnormalities, if the girl is active, eats normally, then perhaps the treatment with “Stomatofit” is inappropriate. Moreover, the effect of it is questionable.
Share your concerns with a pediatrician: more specific recommendations can be given only after an examination.
