Cause A 5 Month Old Baby Breathes Through The Mouth?
I want to ask, my daughter is more than 5 months old, why if you breathe often through her mouth then her nose sometimes flares up, sometimes has difficulty breathing, it’s even worse after being prone, why huh ??
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Frequent breathing through the mouth accompanied by a fluctuating life such as difficulty breathing may indicate a blockage in the baby's nose. This blockage can occur due to several factors, including:
Inflammation of the nasal cavity, eg rhinitis, sinusitis Corpus alienum (insertion of foreign bodies) Deviation of the nasal septum (oblique barrier between nasal cavities) Nasal polyps (benign tumors originating from the lining of the nasal mucosa) Other benign or malignant tumors in the nasal cavity Try to observe inside the nasal cavity, do you see any clogged masses? Does your baby have other complaints, such as a runny nose, nasal discharge, fussiness, difficulty sleeping, frequent rubbing of the nose, red nose or eyes, watery eyes, recurring nosebleeds, etc.? How long have complaints like this been happening?
It could also, your baby's complaints arise due to other causes besides obstruction in the nasal cavity, for example bronchopneumonia, bronchial asthma, acid-base balance disorders, heart problems, kidney problems, allergies, and so on.
To prevent possible dangerous conditions, you should not let your baby's complaints drag on. Check with him directly to a doctor or pediatrician to clarify the possible causes of the complaint. Several types of examinations, including x-rays, rhinoscopy, nasal endoscopy, blood tests, allergy tests, etc. may be done by doctors to identify the best treatment that can be done.
As a first step, you can first do the following:
Give your baby enough milk according to their needs. Avoid exposure to things that can cause their airways to become inflamed, for example excessive cold temperatures, wind, pollen, animal hair, dust mites, smoke, etc. Teach babies not to poke their noses Take care of the environment around the baby to keep it clean and moisturized Avoid excessive use of air conditioning or fans. Do not give drugs carelessly to babies. Hope it helps.
