Snot in the baby: how to treat to help the baby quickly and effectively
The success of the patient’s treatment is his help to the doctor, the readiness to make every effort to get better soon. In the situation with infants everything is much more complicated. Even such a simple procedure, as a blow-out, turns into a problem.
A runny nose (with all the efforts of parents to protect the baby from colds and infections) is not so rare. The tiny organism is still building its relations with the outside world and can not always cope with any pathogenic microbes if they go on the offensive, for example, on a delicate mucous spout.
How to treat a snot in a baby, how to clear a nose to a newborn and an infant, and also a few tips from Dr. Komarovsky you will learn from our article!
Soply can appear not only in the diseased, but also in a healthy child. The fact is that along with the inhaled air, various microorganisms penetrate inside and settle on the mucous membrane.
Immediately, mucociliary clearance is included in the work. Experts call this special term a special mechanism that protects respiratory organs from negative (including infectious) exposure from the outside.
Therefore, the appearance of a baby in a baby means that the mechanism is functioning, and uninvited guests point to the exit. Such a runny nose is called physiological .
Remove the rubber nozzle from the pipette and insert the tube into the baby's nostril, the other end is taken into the mouth, and then suck in the air, releasing the baby's nasal cavity from the mucus.
From who will perform this procedure, you will need agility (it is necessary to act quickly, so that the child does not begin to twist restlessly with his head) and carefully, in no case can not provoke increased pressure in the nasopharynx.
There is also a way to remove the nozzles with the mouth. Doctors do not approve of it, but if this is the only possible way to help the baby, then they will have to use it.
Sometimes the necessary effect can be achieved, Burying in a spout seawater (for example, Aquamaris), it cleans the airways well.
If the snot can not be sucked in one way, another is used; one of the options (there are not so few of them) should work.
If all attempts to suck out a snot in a newborn are unsuccessful, the doctor (in the most severe cases) can decide to pierce and pump out mucus and pus in a hospital. It is, of course, about exceptional situations when the runny nose is running and the disease acquired more severe forms.
Is it allowed to walk with an infant and bathe it during such a period
Walk will be for the baby even useful, if he only has a runny nose and there are no other symptoms of acute respiratory viral infection, and above all - fever.
Often parents fear that in the street, in addition to the common cold, an infant will catch a virus.
According to doctors, fresh air of such danger does not represent, there is much more risk of getting infected in the native walls from the pope who came from work, where someone was unwell, or from the grandmother who returned from the store or pharmacy, where there are probably coughing and sneezing.
Swimming also needs a selective approach. If the runny nose is physiological, bathing is not prohibited, if it is infectious, then the bath should be discarded, limited to hygienic procedures: wash your face, tidy up your ass.
As soon as the pediatrician gives the go-ahead for water procedures, one should use this, to make them healthier - add a decoction of medicinal herbs to the water, which the baby does not have allergies (chamomile, calendula, string). The water temperature should be a couple of degrees higher than usual, and the duration of bathing is shorter.
