How To Deal With Milk Marks On The Tongue And Colds In Babies 2 Months?
I want a cold medicine for babies for 2 months. And what medicine to remove the milk from the baby’s tongue, because my child, if his milk is sore, his tongue is always crying, if I want breast milk, please answer me, because I feel sorry for my shaky boy.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First I will try to answer about your child's cold cough first. Cough colds in children are most often caused by a viral infection. Viral infection basically does not require any therapy because it will heal by itself in 7-10 days. Giving symptomatic drugs to reduce cough and mucus production in the nose is not recommended especially for babies because the risk of side effects is greater than the benefits of drug administration. Giving cold cough medicines also proved not to speed healing. For babies under 3 months, you should also consult a doctor directly if you want to give medication to reduce the heat (for example your baby has a fever).
If the cold cough does not improve after 1 week, you can take your baby to the doctor for further evaluation and management. If you feel your baby is experiencing shortness of breath (his breathing looks faster than usual, his nostrils flatten when breathing, you hear unusual sounds when the baby breathes), immediately take your baby to the hospital.
Regarding the white tongue, if indeed the white tongue is only caused by the remaining milk, then you can clean it with a small towel that you wet with warm boiled water after every breastfeeding. You can wrap a towel around your index finger, then put it in the baby's mouth and gently rub the tongue and the oral cavity. This is highly recommended to be done at least once a day to maintain the oral health of the baby.
If the leucorrhoea on the tongue cannot be cleaned by rubbing as above, then it may be caused by a fungal infection in the baby's mouth. You should take your child to the pediatrician for further treatment. Antifungal drugs, including hard drugs that should not be given without a direct examination on the patient and you should not buy without a prescription from a doctor.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
