Overcoming Children Who Always Sneeze When In Cold Weather?
I want to ask..I am 2 years old 5 months … how do you deal with ankles with allergic cold air, your nose will certainly … how to anticipate it and how to overcome it …
When the air is cold, it is very natural if the nose becomes runny / runny. This is because the nose works more extra to make the air entering through the nose become warmer and more moist. It is to perform this function that the blood vessels become wider so that blood flow to the nose increases. As a result, the production of fluid or mucus in the nose will also increase. For someone who has allergies, the response will tend to be more active than ordinary people who do not have allergies.
Basically a cold allergy / cold urticaria is the reaction of the skin to cold temperatures, so that it will appear itchy lesions and reddish skin. While irritation or inflammation that occurs in the mucosa / inner lining of the nose that causes symptoms such as runny, nasal congestion, sneezing caused by allergens (dust, cold, animal skin, pollen) are all called allergic rhinitis. So if referenced again to the condition of your child, most likely what happens to him is allergic rhinitis.
Rhinitis usually has symptoms such as:
nasal congestion or runny
the sense of smell is reduced
disturbing taste in the nose area and around the nose
To do prevention at home, you can do things like:
Avoid consumption of food or cold drinks
Protect the body from dramatically reduced temperatures or cold weather
Clean the nasal passages regularly to keep the nose free from irritation
Consumption of supplements that can increase immunity / immunity can be given to prevent recurring rhinitis and prevent symptoms from getting worse
However, if the runny nose is too excessive and cause your child to have a fever or add a cold cough, then your child should be taken to a pediatrician or ENT doctor to be consulted directly for examination. Usually the doctor will prescribe medication to prevent allergic reactions in the future such as antihistamines or other immunotherapy drugs.
So that we can convey, hopefully useful. Thanks.
