When near my daughter they sneeze, cough, sniff, and then whisper something in my ear or share juice from one glass, I involuntarily cringe. The anticipation that droplets of the virus will fall on the mucous membrane of its respiratory tract does not inspire optimism at all.
Concept of disease
Acute Respiratory Viral Infection is transmitted from a person who is ill to a healthy person by the air with droplets of saliva and mucus.
In each child, ARVI can begin in different ways, but the general signs of the disease caused by viral infections or microorganisms, and methods of treatment are typical.
Symptoms of the disease
My daughter ORVI does not appear immediately. I almost never can determine that the disease is already wandering through her body. I discover the disease in the evening, in the midst of all the symptoms. Then I just start to analyze and remember that …
In the morning, when the symptoms had not yet spilled out, the child was sluggish, asked to sit down, lie down, still sleep. There was no desire for action.
The day spent in the garden in the team, where she, most likely, ARVI and caught, gave its results. I am taking my daughter, who is right on her hands, with strong weakness and moist, red eyes.
Looking into these sore eyes, I already know that at night and tomorrow we will have a temperature of 39.
It is believed that children easily tolerate temperature, and it does not greatly reduce their activity. But my Sonya, at a temperature, lies half awake under a blanket, like an adult, day and night and is sick.
Every time I wait for the pediatrician, I look at the child and do not believe that this is just a cold.
Usually in a day with the help of Ibufen and rubbing with acetic and alcohol solution, the temperature can be knocked down, no longer rises.
After her fall, a runny nose begins, and with it a strong cough.
Win a cold
With a runny nose my daughter has big problems, she has practically nothing to blow out. And we wash out the nozzles from the nose with a solution of ordinary salt.
Developed, directly, the whole technology of taking the drug. Sonya is waiting for the execution with a cup of water in her hand near the sink. I spray the solution into the spout, it penetrates the mouth through the nasopharynx, it spits it out into the sink, quickly rinses the mouth, and so on in a circle.
Under other conditions, the child refuses treatment.
We still shine the nose with a bioptron (Zepter), physiotherapy is obtained without leaving the house. Vasoconstrictor droplets and Isofra complete the course of treatment.
A runny nose is a very important stage for a child. If it is not possible to stop it in time, the mucus that flows down the back wall leads to the appearance of cough, and the disease turns into bronchitis.
But it is impossible to get sick with bronchitis, it cannot be cured without antibiotics, and her daughter is allergic to them.
We treat cough using traditional methods: we draw an iodine net on the breast and back, drink herbal infusions, syrup with Icelandic moss, glue pepper plaster on the trachea and bronchi, shine a bioptron and do massage.
With active treatment, if it is good to take, my daughter is sick for 8–9 days, less is impossible. But for us the main thing is to defeat the virus and cope without antibiotics.
