How to alleviate the condition of the baby and prevent infections from dropping below? It is good if the child is already an adult and is able to explain the cause of crying and show that he has pain and how much. With non-speaking babies, alas, more difficult.
Tonsillitis is quite difficult, almost impossible, to confuse with other diseases of the throat due to the characteristic plaque on the tonsils. Sore throat begins with a sore throat and a sharp rise in body temperature to 39-40 ° C (sometimes up to 41 ° C). Sore throat is usually severe and sharp, but can be moderate. The disease can also occur at lower body temperatures – from 37 to 38 ° C, but with more damage to the throat.
Depending on viral tonsillitis, bacterial or fungal, the doctor prescribes an appropriate treatment. Fortunately, I didn’t have a sore throat, but according to eyewitnesses I know that during my illness it’s not like eating, even talking is painful.
It is possible to relieve the condition with the help of rinsing – a weak (.) Solution of potassium permanganate, soda, iodine, sea salt. Adherents of folk methods recommend warming the throat, which is by no means impossible (by the way, as with otitis, barley and sinus). Also, do not lubricate the tonsils with honey, milk, fat.
The pain syndrome removes a warm drink quite well – herbal teas (chamomile, wild rose), tea with lemon, fruit juice, fruit drink. But here the composition does not really matter, as long as the drink is warm.
In addition to sore throat, there is usually a runny nose, cough, fever. Relieve pain can, as in the case of angina, a warm drink. If a child is more than 4 years old, he can already be given some cough drops – Dekatilen, Isla.
Lollipops have an antiseptic effect and do not allow infection from the throat to go below. Children who do not want or do not want to dissolve lozenges can be offered antiseptic aerosols for the throat: Ingalipt, Chlorophyllipt (remember, they contain essential oils).
I use chlorophyllipt quite often, only not alcoholic aerosol, but an oil solution (20 p. Or 4 UAH). As soon as I have snot daughters, I immediately give her a few drops of the drug 2-3 times a day. And my friend, for example, smears chlorophyllipt on her son’s nostrils before visiting public places. I warn you, his taste is very specific, but my daughter is a lover of thrills, she likes it.
I already wrote about this disease. One of its symptoms is a long, dry cough. And in this case, the throat hurts already rather not because of inflammation, but because of frequent contractions. To alleviate the suffering can be the same candy, it is a pity that at that time, Isla was not suitable daughter because of the young age.
In such cases, syrups are usually prescribed based on plant extracts — plantain, primrose, and alteyka. However, they only treat the symptoms of tracheitis, and the cause is eliminated by antibiotics.
Red throat must be treated, otherwise it is fraught with further complications in the form of pharyngitis, bronchitis, pneumonia, otitis, etc. Every mother should learn to independently assess the condition of the throat of the baby.
Remember that the throat can be red not only because of an infection, but because of a long cry or crying.
