Cough Colds In Children Aged 2 Years?
Good morning. I only have children aged 2 years 1 month. My child has a history of allergies since he was a baby. Allergy to cow’s milk, eggs, and fish. thank God this has begun to diminish, now it has begun to be able to drink cow’s milk (milk) on the market. It’s just that my child is very susceptible to Bapil, sometimes with fever. Though already taking vitamins every day, so many, drink too much milk. Almost every month I was exposed to Bapil. That’s why y? And since changing 2 cows milk this month (before the consumption of allergy-specific milk), her lips have remained dry. And had mouth sores one mouth. Sariawanny recovered, but her lips were still dry. Does it not suit you? Thank you.
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Cough and runny nose are conditions that are often experienced by children, especially those aged less than 5 years. This is related to the immune system that has not been fully formed. In addition, children's play activities that may not have been supported by the ability to maintain good personal hygiene (for example: like putting just any item in the mouth) also contribute to the child's risk of being susceptible to disease. Generally, in one year, children can experience 6-10 episodes of cough and cold. The most common cause of coughing and colds in children is an upper respiratory tract infection by a virus. Another cause that is also quite often is allergic. The more the age of the child increases, the less frequent occurrence of cough and colds they experience because the immune system is getting better. Starting in adolescence, children usually only experience 2-4 episodes of cough and cold in one year.
Meanwhile, thrush is a wound in the mouth that often causes pain and discomfort, the location of the wound can be on the gums, lips, tongue, the inside of the cheeks, and the roof of the mouth. Wounds can amount to one or more. There are several possible causes of canker sores, which are most common include:
Trauma to the mucous lining of the mouth, for example accidentally being bitten, exposed to braces Certain diseases or health problems, for example viral infections, lack of vitamin C or vitamin B12, decreased immune system (eg HIV) Side effects of certain drugs, for example certain antibiotics, chemotherapy psychological, for example stress Usually sprue will improve itself within 1-2 weeks. As a suggestion to prevent the recurrence of cough colds and thrush in children, you are advised to take the following steps:
Familiarize children to wash hands with soap and running water before eating Avoid giving children snacks that are not guaranteed clean Avoid triggers that can cause and aggravate canker sores, for example: trauma due to bites Give children food with a soft texture Use a straw when drinking Increase consumption of fruits and vegetables which is rich in vitamin C You are also advised to consult directly with a pediatrician if complaints of coughing colds and canker sores that continue to repeat over a long period of time.
