Causes Of Lung Infection In Children Aged 1 Year?
Lung infection in toddlers aged 1 year, that’s from the origin of the illness, it happens to be someone who has coughed for weeks.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Pulmonary infection or pneumonia in children can be caused by a viral or bacterial infection (and in very rare cases, it can also be caused by a fungal infection). Pneumonia in children is usually preceded by upper respiratory infections first (colds or common cold) which are most often caused by viral infections, and viral infections in the upper respiratory tract can continue to become infections of the lungs, or can also experience secondary infections by bacteria and become an infection of the lungs. This respiratory tract infection can be obtained from anywhere, from adults who play together with children, from other children who play together with children, or indirect transmission of objects that are just held by people who are sick and held by children. Pulmonary infections in children are more common in children who do have problems with their respiratory tract (for example, have asthma, cystic fibrosis, have immune system disorders, or are often exposed to cigarette smoke).
If in your home there are people who have been coughing for weeks (especially if they are adults), you should advise that person to do a doctor's examination and determine whether the cough is caused by tuberculosis infection or not. If indeed the person suffers from tuberculosis and that person has close enough contact with your child, then you also need to take your child to the pediatrician to ascertain whether the child has a tuberculosis infection or not.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
