Eliminating Allergies In Children Aged 4Year 6 Months?
Hello Erni, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, you need to know in advance that allergic conditions occur because of the body's immune system overload response to certain allergens that enter the body. In coughs caused by allergies, allergens are usually derived from certain substances that enter through the airways. Substances that can cause allergies can vary, for example flower pollen, animal dandruff, mold spores, dust and dust mites, cockroach particles, and much more. To be able to deal effectively with allergic cough, the cause of this allergy must be eliminated.
In the case of your child, it's a good idea to take your child to the pediatrician first. If it is suspected that there is an allergic cough, then the pediatrician will recommend doing an allergy check for your child to find out more clearly what substances that cause allergies in your child. Antihistamines (such as Ryvel) should not be given alone for a long time for children. Such hard drugs should only be given if it has been examined by a doctor first and you should also not buy drugs without a prescription from a doctor.
The following are some things you can do to reduce the possibility of allergies in children:
Clean the child's room regularly, change the sheets at least once a week, clean the bed, sofa, curtains, and toys that can store dust by using vacuum Avoid putting dolls that can store dust in the child's bed Clean the air conditioner and fan regularly Clean house regularly, also pay attention to damp areas (for example behind cabinets) where molds can grow and clean well this area Clean the house from cockroaches If you have pets, you can try leaving your pets to other families first to see if a child's allergy improves. Use an air purifier and a humidifier in your home. Avoid exposure to cigarette smoke and excessive air pollution in children.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
