Can Pneumonia Completely Recover?
Good night . I am a priest I want to ask .. my child is 3 months old and was sentenced by a doctor to be affected by pneumonia and was treated in the hospital 2 times … and now he is still in outpatient care. My question. Does inflammation of the lungs can heal completely … and is it dangerous if the baby is crying when breathing hard like that
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We are also concerned about your child's condition. One disease that is quite frequent and prone to experience by infants is pneumonia or pneumonia, which can be caused by bacterial, viral, or fungal infections that are scattered in the environment. This condition is characterized by high fever, shortness of breath or rapid breathing, coughing colds, breathing sounds, lips or nails appear blue, the baby does not want to suckle and the baby looks nervous and weak.
The triggers for this condition vary. Mainly because babies' immune systems are still weak, but can also be made worse by babies who are not immunized, are not exclusively breastfed, are in the environment of the sick, and are exposed to dust and pollution.
Regarding your question, this disease can be cured with proper treatment by a pediatrician. But even though it can heal and this condition is quite often, this condition must still be taken seriously, because if it is not treated properly and late, respiratory failure, seizures and dehydration can result in death.
Therefore as a parent, if you face your child experiencing symptoms of pneumonia or other emergencies, your job is not to delay again taking your child to the pediatrician, or to the hospital emergency room if it is difficult to get access to a pediatrician in time close. The rest will allow the team of doctors to determine the best treatment for your child. You may actively watch your child and report and ask questions about your concerns during your child's care.
Now while your child is being treated on the road, make sure he always gets ASI whenever he wants, keep away from people who are sick, dust and pollution, try not to see many other people first, if given medicine, help give medicine and if he spit out, report it to the doctor. And if there is an emergency, there is no need to wait for the control time and immediately take it to the nearest hospital emergency room. So, hopefully answering your question.
