Eye drops Vitabakt: instruction for children
Vitabakt – eye drops, effective and safe for the treatment of obstruction of lacrimal ducts (dacryocystitis) in newborns. Since this drug is a broad-spectrum medicine, it is important to know the composition and pharmacological properties of the drug, in what cases and how it should be used correctly, and also what analogues are available for this drug.
When drops are used to treat newborns
Dacryocystitis reminds oneself of lacrimation, redness of eyelids and conjunctiva, sharp soreness and swelling of the area of the inner corner of the eye and its constant suppuration (sour eyes).
With the sour eyes of the newborns, for centuries they fought with the help of various washes and instillations. So far, chamomile broth and fresh, strong tea leaves are usually used for treatment, but in this case this method is absolutely ineffective – dacryocystitis develops as a result of blockage of the lacrimal canal, and until this plug is removed, suppuration will continue.
Normally, in the period of intrauterine development, the tear ducts in all children are closed with a thin plug of embryonic tissue, which breaks out after birth. In some cases, the elements of this stopper remain in the lumen of the canal, the accumulating tear stagnates, and in this environment the microorganisms trapped in the eye slit successfully multiply.
Analogues of the Vitabakt are:
While these drugs are quite effective for bacterial lesions of the eye, mothers of children who had an obstruction of lacrimal ducts, note the benefits of Vitabact - before the appointment of this drug, not one was tried, and only Vitabakt and massage (massage was done about 3 times per day) helped finally get rid of the problem.
