A 2-year-old Child Has A Foamy Mouth After Suffering From Typhus?
Morning, I want to ask. My child is 2,5 years old. 2 months ago he was hospitalized for typhoid. Since then, when my son sleeps, his mouth always comes out foam. My child has tonsils too, can this be the effect of the tonsils. Mhn the answer. Tks
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. A foamy mouth is actually not a specific symptom that leads to a particular medical condition, and other symptoms are needed to further determine the cause. Among the considerations for the disease are:
Sinusitis or inflammation of the sinuses Viral infection of the respiratory tract Sleep apnea, which is characterized by periods of not breathing during sleep Disorders of the salivary glands
When associated with the tonsils, tonsils or tonsils are parts of the body that play a role in the immune system. When an infection occurs, this part will function to release the immune system. Often in children, it is the tonsils that become infected and swell in the end. When the swelling is large enough, the tonsils can cover the oral cavity, causing snoring symptoms, frequent waking during sleep, and although rarely, it can also include saliva or foam when sleeping due to the non-smooth flow of saliva.
Our advice is that you should take your child to an ENT doctor for further examination of any potential abnormalities. Your child's ENT doctor will then do a history run on you, and focus on the physical exam to look for trends. Investigations may be needed to rule out other possibilities. The treatment your child will receive will depend on the results of this examination.
While this is still a less obvious condition, and the symptoms don't seem too dangerous, there is not much you can do independently at home other than generally ensuring your child is eating a healthy diet and getting adequate rest. Immediately consult an ENT doctor so that you can immediately find out what is happening to your child. So, hopefully it answers your question.
