On the question of whether the child had acute respiratory viral infections before the year, almost all mothers will answer in the affirmative.
When his son was almost 11 months old, he fell ill with ARVI. And it happened very suddenly (as well as all the other sores), and I still do not understand how this could happen, the child did not contact with sick people, and indeed, his chances of getting sick were minimal, however It happened.
At this time, his son began to cut another tooth, so the loss of appetite, the liquid speeded up stool and the temperature of 38 did not surprise me, besides, he behaved, as usual, was cheerful, playful, and rarely capricious.
Despite the fact that the temperature was not high enough to start shooting it down, I still gave him half the dosage of Ibufen D, after that he immediately fell asleep and could sleep for as much as 3 hours, which is a record for us.
However, three days later, the temperature did not disappear anywhere, but on the contrary, suddenly it rose to 39.1. Ibufen D and children’s paracetamol brought this temperature down only for an hour and a half, then it rose again.
We called an ambulance (it was Sunday, besides, it was unreal to call the pediatrician), the doctor arrived, listened to the baby, said that everything was clean in the lungs, rubbed the baby with vodka, waited until the temperature dropped and left, leaving me with a paper with a diagnosis SARS.
It should be noted that the son neither sneezed nor coughed, he did not have snot, and if it were not for the temperature, one would think that the baby is completely healthy. In the evening of the same day, we still managed to get through a familiar pediatrician. A woman who is already retired, but still goes to inspect the children, besides this is a familiar mother-in-law, so she quickly rushed to help.
After seeing her son, she gave me a lecture on how to properly care for a baby when he has a fever, and how to knock her down. I also learned from her that the eruption of teeth in some babies can provoke a disease, it was just our case.
My son also had a sore throat, it was painful for him to swallow, and if I didn’t breastfeed him, I don’t know what the baby would eat (he doesn’t recognize the mixture and doesn’t drink from the bottle at all.)
In general, we were prescribed treatment (on Monday, another pediatrician came to us, who fully agreed with the course of treatment). So, it was necessary to take Viferon, antiviral candles for children, 2 times a day for 5 days.
Since the child had diarrhea, we were told that Viferon should not be put at this time, it will not work anyway, first we need to normalize the chair. I cooked chicken soup with rice, and the soup is difficult to call, it was impossible to add potatoes, onions, carrots, they would still not be able to digest, and this would be an additional burden on the not quite strong body.
For the neck, we used KyzylMay oil, a couple of drops on the tongue, pyshykalka in the throat of Tanflex and Prospan cough syrup, since the baby could cough a couple of times, especially in the morning.
I was also told that if the temperature is above 38.7 and Ibufen D does not help, you can give paracetamol for children or Cefecone D candle, and if the heat does not fall, the child should be stripped and wiped with vodka, you should not wipe it after the procedure and the rubbing itself can be repeated three times in a row for 20-30 minutes.
It is also necessary to drink as much warm liquid as possible, I gave a children’s herbal tea to raise immunity and boiled warm water. I’m not talking about the fact that the child can not bathe and walk with him on the street, it goes without saying. And still the baby cannot be warmly dressed and wrapped, from this the temperature can only increase. That’s basically all, observing all these rituals, on the third day there were significant improvements.
Here is my experience. Have you encountered ARVI?
