Mistakes Parents, Children Vulnerable To Pneumonia!
The summer climate is hot, uncomfortable and easily causes many skin diseases for children such as heat rash, pimples, dermatitis, skin allergies ... Therefore, parents have prepared a lot of food as well as making many things for children to cool down during the summer day such as using air conditioners, electric fans, sending children to swimming, eating ice cream and eating cold tea.
However, like a double-edged sword, these actions of parents if not properly or not stopped in time will easily cause children to suffer from respiratory diseases.
Risks need to be alert
Summer is a hot season, so some activities in daily life are more changed than other seasons of the year. Of interest is the habit of eating and drinking things like using ice in soft drinks such as orange juice, lemon or always using cool water whenever thirsty, bathing, using fans as well as air conditioning.
Many families in the summer always have fruits or teas (black tea, black bean tea
.) ready in the refrigerator to feed children whenever they need it. If children use food and cold water continuously for many days, it can make it difficult for them to adapt and especially sensitive parts of the throat, mouth, pharynx, larynx as well as other parts of the road. Lower respiratory tract also hurt.
Manifestations of a cold are sore throat, pharyngitis or laryngitis or tonsillitis, VA. And from these diseases, children will have mild to severe pneumonia if not detected in time.
Use air conditioner
The summer routine of most parents and very popular with children is using air conditioning
Research shows that if a child stays in a room with an air conditioner for more than 4 hours, their skin, throat, and respiratory tract will be dry and very easy for the microorganisms to attack, especially the types of bacteria already in the upper respiratory tract of children such as H. influenzae, pneumococcus ...
If children are allowed to come in and out of the air-conditioned room many times in a certain period of time, they are also susceptible to colds due to excessive temperature changes, especially if they are suddenly cold, and become hot. upper respiratory tract inflammation, even acute pneumonia.
Take a long shower
The weather is so hot that children often bathe or even shower several times a day, especially when they go to the beach. If you bathe several times a day or soak in the sea for a long time, children are also susceptible to colds that cause sore throat, tonsillitis or worse pneumonia.
If not detected in time and appropriate measures are taken, the child's illness will be aggravated but manifested as increased body temperature, cough also increased, dysplasia, shortness of breath, persistent. If the baby is breastfed, the baby will suckle or stop feeding. Respiratory infections worsen when the child has signs of purple lips, intercostal interstitial spasms, lips and fingertips, toes become purple.
Babies with pneumonia may also have diarrhea symptoms. Therefore, when there are signs of fever, cough, shortness of breath, cyanosis and diarrhea, do not misunderstand that the child is not suffering from pneumonia, especially interested in children under 12 months old. One thing to keep in mind is that the younger a child is when a cold causes respiratory infections, the more difficult it will be for parents.
How to cope?
To limit the illness of children in the summer, especially pneumonia, it is necessary to limit children to use cool water, ice, fruit and processed foods in the refrigerator. For this, parents need to control the use of children, especially older children.
Every time you use the air conditioner, should have a reasonable temperature adjustment (difference between room temperature and outdoor about 2-3 degrees is moderate). Do not let the air conditioner fan directly into the baby's body. Outside of bedtime, children should not be left in the air-conditioned room for too many hours a day because they will catch a cold and most likely lack sunlight, which makes them more likely to develop rickets.
In the summer, do not wear very thick clothes or tight nappies, which make children susceptible to colds because sweaty clothes or diapers make children cold. When children are playing or sleeping, children should not be swirled by fans and should only use low or moderate fan speeds. In a room where children play or sleep, there should be no cigarette smoke or kitchen smoke (oil stove, wood stove, straw, charcoal stove).
Although it is a hot season, when bathing children, especially children under 5 years old, warm water is best and children should not use cold water. When children show signs of upper respiratory tract infection such as coughing, sneezing, runny nose or accompanied by fever, they should quickly go to the nearest medical facility for examination, should not hesitate to make a child's illness.
worsening makes it difficult to manage a visit.
