Allergy And Pneumonia In Infants Aged 6 Months?
, my child is 6 months old, during this time Full ASI and yesterday at the first MPASI I gave puree of bananas and milk porridge, after eating at night in both legs the calf appeared little red bumps but only on the legs, there were no other parts of the body. 2 days after he appeared red bumps he had a fever, I thought the teething fever because it really fit his lower front teeth would grow, but after that he coughed too, had trouble sleeping and fussing, did not want to suckle as usual. I take it to the pediatrician (fever condition, cough) Well when checked the doctor said that the breath quickly gets dusted and given just one type of drug VENTOLIN EXPECTORANT. I googling information that syrup is a drug used to treat diseases of the respiratory tract such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The doctor did not explain the possibility of what caused my child to breathe fast, so I am confused what my child is sick of.
Hello Vanyeka, thank you for the weight to HealthReplies.com
Babies are more fussy than their parents or decreased appetite and drinking than usual is a sign that the baby is experiencing pain. Infants aged 6 months certainly do not have a immune system or immunity so that more vulnerable women affected by diseases or infections such as respiratory infections. Fever, coughing, and rapid breathing in infants can be a sign of respiratory problems such as infection.
The continuation of a baby's breathing at the age of 6 months is normally about 30-50 times per minute, if the breath rate is more than 50 x / minute it means that there is indeed an increase in breath rate that can be caused by a variety of factors. Here are some conditions that can cause coughing, fever, and rapid breathing in children, for example:
Pnemumonia Bronkopnemumonia Bronkiolitis 1. Medication you mean ventolin exp is a drug that contains: Salbutamol sulfate and guaiphenesin to help relieve breathing by relaxing breathing muscles that constrict and to help expel phlegm. So that breathing will be more relieved, and sputum in the respiratory tract can be removed. But you do not need to worry too much, if you have seen a pediatrician's doctor, the doctor will certainly give the drug based on clinical considerations and based on the findings when an examination is performed on your baby. Using this pbat does not mean your child has asthma or the lung disease you mentioned. This drug is usually a symptomatic drug that is a drug used to reduce symptoms that occur in your baby. Therefore, please make this medicine in accordance with the instructions and recommendations of pediatricians.
2. Pneumonia is an infection that causes inflammation in the air sacs in one or both lungs. The cause of pneumonia is quite diverse, for example due to bacteria, fungi, and a number of viruses. To determine the pneumonia of the crew, an examination and direct interview are conducted. Signs of pneumonia are fever, increased breathing rate or shortness of breath, cough with a history of cough with phlegm usually thick discharge. Moreover, it can also be assisted with radiological examinations such as lung x-rays. But this X-ray is done on the baby if it will give more benefits. In children often penumonia due to viral infection. And usually pneumonia due to viruses causes symptoms that are lighter and shorter than pneumonia due to bacteria.
PCV vaccine or pneumococcal vaccine protects the body from pneumococcal bacterial infections. Infections caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae can cause meningitis, pneumonia, and septicemia (severe infections). This PCV vaccine can prevent a child from an infection such as severe pneumonia. But that does not mean the child is free from other viral infections, such as minor infections due to viruses. It's still possible for a child to have a lung infection or pneumonia, but it usually doesn't lead to a serious and dangerous infection.
3. We recommend that you go back to the Pediatrician, because the pediatrician will also evaluate and carry out checks on your baby. Respiratory tract infections in children have become the competence of pediatricians. So, you should consult your pediatric sepsiualis doctor for further evaluation and management.
If the baby is sick and shows signs of respiratory infections like these, there are a number of things you can do
Resting the child Give him lots of fluids (including breast milk and formula milk). This is done to prevent dehydration. However, be careful if the child is short of breath, or the breathing rate increases when drinking can cause a child to choke or aspiration which is a dangerous condition. If the child's breathing rate is tight or tight, immediately bring the child to the nearest emergency room. Make your child's room comfortable by installing air humidifiers. Sterilize your child's room from air pollution, especially cigarette smoke. Give heat relievers, for example, paracetamol as recommended.
