Management Of Thrush In Children Who Are Teething?
so let me introduce my name is riski, I have 1 daughter aged 1 year 3 months, now in the growth of her teeth my child also has thrush in the tongue accompanied by heat … cure heat and thrush
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
When teething, gums can become inflamed so that there arises swelling and redness of the gums. Inflammation that is severe enough can also make a child experience a fever (body heat), so that it becomes more fussy, difficulty sleeping, appetite also decreases. Not only that, the newly erupted tooth surface, which is often rough or sharp, can also cause injury to the inside of the child's oral cavity, resulting in thrush.
However, you need to know, that fever and thrush in children can also occur due to other causes, for example:
Causes of fever in children: ear infections, digestive infections, urinary tract infections, viral or other bacterial infections Causes of thrush in children: bitten, exfoliating or sucking excessive lips, dry lips, lack of vitamin C, fungal infections in the oral cavity, and so on Before checking your child to the doctor, it is actually not certain whether your child's complaints are purely due to the growth of new teeth, or because of other reasons as mentioned above. Each of these conditions can certainly have a different treatment.
If a new child's complaint lasts for 1 to 3 days, you can first do the following steps to resolve it:
Ask your child to diligently brush his teeth Clean his tongue when bathing, when he wants to sleep, and after breastfeeding Give the child a lot to drink Give the child also food that is easily digested, not too hard, not spicy or sour, avoid fried. Give fruit that contains lots of vitamin C Ask your child to get plenty of rest, do not play too tired Give your child paracetamol medication if the fever does not go down However, if complaints persist for 3 days or more, you should not stay silent. Check your child directly to the doctor or pediatrician so that his complaint can be handled appropriately.
Hope this helps ...
