Rhinitis in the infant: causes and treatment

Treatment of a cold in an infant

The organism of children under 1 year (breastfeeding period) is more susceptible to various diseases than older children, and very often parents face the problem of a cold in a child. The mucous membrane of the baby’s nose is very sensitive, therefore respiratory diseases are almost inevitable. The main causes of rhinitis in newborn babies are viruses, allergies, inflammatory processes. But, and at the same time, in children up to 2.5 months of life, the presence of copes does not at all indicate a child’s illness. Immediately after birth in the inner cavity of the nose at first very dry, then become too wet; ; this is a normal process of adaptation of the organism to external conditions, this is a physiological runny nose. In infants, full mucosal work begins after 10 weeks of life, so that phlegm in the nose is a physiological and natural process. You do not need to treat it. It is important to recognize it and just provide a comfortable air in the room of the newborn. Let’s take a closer look at the types of rhinitis and how to help your baby breathe normally.

Types and causes of the common cold

A rhinitis for an infant is very tiring, because the baby still does not know how to breathe through the mouth, the nasal passages are narrow, and the swollen mucous membrane of the nose makes it difficult for them to fully breathe. When a child has a spout,; he badly eats, does not sleep well, he is capricious. In the early days, the common cold is accompanied by copious watery discharge from the nose, an increase in temperature (mainly for colds or hypothermia) and lasts up to 2 weeks. With a strong runny nose around the nose and upper lip, there may be swelling and irritation.

The main symptoms; this snot # 55357; # 56898;

  • Copious watery discharge from the nose.
  • Deterioration of the general condition of the child, a temperature of 37 ° C is possible.
  • When nasal congestion or a runny nose appears, the baby refuses from the breast (from the bottle), begins to make frequent breaks when sucking.
  • There is shortness of breath and normal breathing is disturbed.
  • If the common cold is allergic, in addition to watery discharge, sneezing attacks, itching in the nose, redness of the eyes.
  • Breast children involuntarily pull the handles to the nose, rubbing it.
  • The child is disturbed by the rhythm of life (sleep, wakefulness and nutrition).
  • Physiological. At the beginning of the article they said that this is a natural process of the body.
  • Infectious or viral. Causes of the disease are bacterial or viral infections. Soplets are a protective reaction of the body to a viral infection.
  • Allergic. It is caused by various substances-allergens (dust, food (if the child is on the GW, then all that the mother eats, gets the baby and milk), on the flowering of plants, on household chemicals, etc.). In this case there is not only a cold, but also the tear of the eyes.
  • Vasomotor. It arises from the presence of problems with the vessels of the mucous membranes of the nose (in infants is rare).


We also have a scheme worked out. We clean with saline (1 teaspoon salt of sea, ordinary or iodized salt) per 1 liter of warm boiled water. Free Akvachego something. And then droplets of Reno-Baby. For an older child, Rinoxil in a spray.

And by the way, girls and grandmothers, up to 3 years can not pshikat anything, no enema, no spray. You can damage the sosudiki.

Useful article! A friend of the doctor enlightened me and recommended using Quix - this is a very convenient spray based on the Atlantic water. I used it myself when I was pregnant and the baby is now being treated, the usual Quicks can be from 3 months. He helps and spread out the nose, if it is laid, and wash all the bikas so that it does not go into sinusitis. So another great option for dealing with nasal congestion.

tell me and otrivin aspirator will not harm the ears of the child? because when you suck out the droplets, then there is a lot of pressure on the ears, in particular, on the membranes. it is not possible to damage it? were there any studies?

Usually a leaking acute rhinitis, if the child's condition remains satisfactory, in the vast majority of cases, does not require intensive treatment.

somehow we caught a cold in the kindergarten. went to the prelude to the pediatrician and he advised us to wash his nose with morenazal. this is our domestic spray based on sea salt. I thought first of all whether to take it or not, but the pharmacist assured me that it does not contain chemistry and is absolutely safe for children, unlike aerosol sprays that can cause otitis media. and even cheaper than aquamaris, which I was first offered to take by a friend, before we visited the doctor. took a try morenazal, and the truth spray was excellent. They began to wash and after a few days the runny nose receded.

Moderators, correct, pliz, article. For a long time the whole civilized world has refused to instill milk and juices into the nose. Thank you!
