Colds In Children Who Don’t Get Well?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, I want to confirm beforehand, whether the snot that comes out is only clear or looks yellowish or greenish for 4 months? Does the child experience other symptoms such as frequent coughing at night, often heard clearing the throat, smelling breath, swelling in certain areas of the face (such as around the eyes)?
If your child only looks runny and snot only clear color, chances are that your child is experiencing a cold due to allergies / irritation in his respiratory tract, for example, children have allergies to dust mites, animal dandruff, flower pollen or fungal spores (including fungus which is often attached to the walls of the house), or due to exposure to cigarette smoke or air pollution. If a child's snot appears yellowish or thick greenish and other symptoms occur as mentioned above, then the child's cold may be caused by sinusitis or inflammation of the sinuses.
To be sure, you should do a check with your pediatrician for further evaluation. If necessary, the child's doctor can also provide a referral to the ENT doctor so that a deeper examination of the child's nose and sinuses can be done.
For now, you can try to do the following:
Try cleaning the child's room from dust. Change sheets and pillowcases bolster regularly every 1 week, clean the bed and pillow bolt with a vacuum. Avoid putting dolls that can store dust in a child's bedroom. If you are raising animals, try to keep the animals away from children for a while. Avoid smoking near children. Avoid excessive exposure to air pollution in children. If you use air conditioning at home, try to clean your AC filter. routinely Put on a humidifier when the child is sleeping
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
