Some of your child's complaints delivered such as headaches, coughing and swollen gums can be related to each other or are symptoms of a different disease. Related to complaints of swollen gums, this is a sign of inflammation in the gum tissue. Inflammation itself can be caused by accumulation of plaque or tartar, bacterial infections or teething garena. We recommend that you consult the child's mother to the dentist so that it can be examined carefully and get the right treatment. For home care, mothers can make salt water solution to rinse and also accustom the mother to brush her teeth at least 2 times a day, especially after eating and before going to bed.
Cough itself is a reflex of the body to remove bacteria or "components" that are harmful to the body. A cough that occurs for several days can be caused by an upper respiratory tract infection or due to an allergy. Of course the doctor needs to dig deeper into patient complaints and conduct a physical examination directly to assess the condition of the upper airway and lungs and the patient's overall condition. From the results of the history (in-depth interview) and physical examination, the doctor will be able to determine the diagnosis and the appropriate treatment.
The headache complaints need more information about how the characteristics of headaches are felt whether throbbing, like being tied or feel like being pricked. Other information such as how long the complaint has been felt, what part of the whole head and the factors that trigger the emergence of headaches are also very helpful in finding the cause of headaches experienced by the mother's child.
For now try to provide soft foods such as porridge to reduce complaints of swollen gums but also maintain the supply of nutrients that enter the body. Good endurance will usually speed up the healing process. In addition, adequate rest and consumption of fruits rich in vitamin C such as pineapple, orange and papaya.
so hopefully useful
