Giving Degirol To Children Aged 3 Years.
What is the impact on 3-year-olds on using degirol.
Thank you for the question.
Degirol contains activedequalinium chloride, an antiseptic that is useful in killing germs that cause infections, especially infections in the oral cavity, throat, and the surrounding area. With the use of this product, discomfort, such as itching, pain, and slimy, such as due to canker sores, oral candidiasis, inflammation of the tonsils, laryngitis, and so on can be overcome. Not only that, the use of this product is also believed to prevent coughs and colds.
Products containing dequalinium chloride are not recommended for children under 10 years old. Because, many studies say that the risk of side effects that can arise when this product is used in children will be much higher. The side effects in question are throat and tongue pain, nausea, vomiting, bloating, breast pain and swelling, abnormal vaginal discharge, itching and odor in the vagina, pain or burning sensation in the vagina, abnormal vaginal bleeding, and so on.
Therefore, giving drugs or any health product to children should only be done on prescription and direct supervision from a doctor or pediatrician, right?
I hope this helps.
