Conjunctivitis in a child in combination with fever, runny nose and cough: how to help the baby?
Conjunctivitis for cold and acute respiratory viral infection is a frequent phenomenon in a child. This disease occurs at any time of the year, so the cough-rhinitis-conjunctivitis complex manifests itself regularly. How to deal with this problem?
Often the root cause of conjunctivitis is infection on contact with a patient. When the disease is observed, intense formation of a thick secret, gluing eyelashes. This is noticeable on waking and makes eye opening difficult.
If against the background of conjunctivitis the child may have flu symptoms in the form of cough, fever, green discharge and a cold, the conjunctivitis is secondary. Its development occurs with the beginning of the main pathology, and at the end of it.
Conjunctivitis in children often accompanies hyperthermia (fever). This is a consequence of the imperfection of the immune system and the violation of the principles of personal hygiene.
The temperature in a child rises with the development of complications and consequences of conjunctivitis, that is, the appearance of another infection.
When it penetrates the body, the immune system is activated. In response, interferons are produced and body temperature rises. Hyperthermia in 38 C and more viruses and bacteria can not stand. So the body struggles with inflammation.
