Can Hernias In Children Cause Chills?
Hello, I want to ask. My child has a lump in the area over his genitals, after I search on google it turns out it’s a hernia, sometimes there are lumps, sometimes there are no lumps. Is it dangerous or not the hernia? Can it be cured without surgery? Then every day my child is having a hard time, when he is sure to have a lump of hernia out. I became afraid, then what drug is suitable for difficult children for that chapter? So the bumps on the hernias don’t come out all the time
Based on the symptoms you mentioned, it is also possible that your child has a hernia. However, you must make sure first through consultation with a pediatrician. Finding information online is certainly important, but you must confirm it with an accurate source. A hernia is a condition where the contents of a cavity come out through a hole that should not be there. The most common hernia is the discharge of the contents of the abdominal cavity through a hole. The hole can be a connective tissue that is experiencing weakness or a muscle that has an injury (for example postoperative abdominal wall). Hernia that comes out can be in the form of intestine or intestinal membrane lining (omentum).
Hernias are more often found in men, can affect infants, children, adults, or the elderly. Hernias can be divided into several types, namely:
Inguinal hernia. The most common form of hernias. Fill the stomach out of the hole on the groin.
Umbilical hernia. The contents of the stomach come out through the hole in the navel.
Femoral Hernia. The contents of the stomach come out through the hole in the thigh.
Hernralis hernia. The contents of the stomach come out through the hole in the scrotum (testicle wrap).
Hernias may cause difficulty in bowel movements, if part of the intestine that comes out of the hernia hole is then pinched, causing intestinal obstruction. However, most hernias do not cause difficulty in bowel movements. If the difficulty of bowel movements is caused by a pinched hernia, called strangulated hernias, the condition is an emergency condition.
In your child, the possibility of bowel movements can be caused by several things:
Drink less water
Lack of vegetable and fruit intake
Not enough nutrients are coming in
Blockage of the large intestine or rectum
Not all hernias must be operated on. You did not mention the age of your child, but in babies if the hernia is not large, there is still the possibility of the hernia closing itself as you age. But in older children, hernias generally need to be operated on to prevent strangulated hernias.
Consult this matter with your pediatrician. Tell in order and complete so that doctors easily determine the steps. Try your child to drink lots of water, vegetables, and fruit. Teach children to try to defecate with a squat position, because the squat position is a physiological position that facilitates the process of bowel movements.
Thus my explanation, hopefully broaden your horizons. Regards.
