Difficult To Mpasi Excessive Mucus State?
Tonight, I am the mother of a baby aged 11 months. I want to ask, my baby from the age of 2 months has been found out how come his grok does not breathe like a lot of slime in the throat. But I have ever consulted a doctor, he said, it was natural that later in line with the increasing age, the grok would disappear. Yeah, it’s getting older as the sound of the bad breath disappears but it’s not like the mucus is gone. From the beginning, he was very difficult to eat. And every time he tried to swallow his food, he always felt sick and finally threw up. As if there is something in the lump in the throat. And that too until now the effect. He can only eat with a very fine texture. While she was already 11 months old, she had to eat the texture of approaching Kluarga food. I often practice giving rough food but just don’t chew it like it, but it keeps on swallowing, but always gets tired and coughs up and vomits along with the mucus too. How is this the solution? Please answer from the doctor, thank you
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically, the human airway always produces mucus. This mucus serves to maintain the humidity of the airways and helps cleanse and remove impurities and dead airway mucosal cells. There are several conditions that can cause this mucus production to increase or the expenditure becomes less good, some of which are:
respiratory tract infections
irritation of the airways (for example due to exposure to cigarette smoke or excessive air pollution)
the presence of foreign matter in the airway
the air is too dry
certain genetic diseases such as cystic fibrosis, Primary ciliary dyskinesia
If indeed the condition is to interfere with your baby's diet, especially to cause the baby's weight does not rise properly, you should bring your baby back to the pediatrician so that further evaluation can be done. The following are some things you can do:
Give more drink to the baby
Keep baby from exposure to cigarette smoke and air pollution
Clean the house of things that have the potential to cause allergies in infants, such as animal dandruff, dust mites, mold on the walls of the house, etc.
Wash the baby in warm water and let the baby breathe the steam from the water
Install an air humidifier (humidifier in your home)
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
