Treatment of a cold in a newborn baby
The newborn child has not yet fully formed the immune system, so the common cold is a frequent phenomenon, most often it is caused by an acute viral respiratory infection. Therefore it is very important in the season of morbidity, as little as possible to arrive in public places – transport, shops, guests. In the case of a relative’s illness, you must protect the baby from contact with him. When a cold in a newborn has arisen, you need to take immediate action.
In infants everything happens abruptly, but you can notice such changes:
- The child does not eat anything.
- Constantly crying, capricious.
- Poor sleep.
- The body temperature rises.
- The eyes of the baby are cloudy.
- The new-born pales pale with cheeks.
- A runny nose appears.
- The child does not want to take the breast.
All these symptoms indicate that the baby is sick. Colds in the baby can be accompanied by coughing and stuffiness of the nose. Often parents are sure that the body temperature is provoked by teething, but you need to understand that, after all, the tooth itself does not cause coughing, runny nose and fever, this is evidence that the child, against a weakened immune system, picked up a virus. Symptoms of a cold in the baby mama can always notice, because his usual behavior changes dramatically.
Thus, with colds, babies need serious treatment, because it is dangerous for their complications. Newborn babies are more difficult to tolerate it than older children, so do not run it if symptoms are pronounced, immediately contact a doctor. It is with him that you can consult about the use of antiviral drugs for children.
