The Possibility Of Recovery In 1-year-old Child Who Has A Lung Infection?
.. can a lung infection in an infant aged 1 month 6 days be cured ?? and how to overcome it
Thank you for the question.
The lung infection you are referring to may refer to pneumonia, which is an inflammation of the lung parenchyma that causes the alveoli to fill with fluid and pus so that the baby has a cough, fever, shortness of breath, restlessness, weakness, and difficulty when breathing and suckling. This condition actually can not only be caused by infection, but also because of aspiration (the entry of substances other than air into the lungs). Newborns up to age 2 years, especially those who have a history of being born prematurely, with LBW, or experiencing severe illness early in life are much more at risk of pneumonia.
The potential for healing pneumonia in infants can vary depending on the cause, its severity, the baby's general health condition, and the treatment given to overcome it. You will need to consult further regarding this matter with the doctor or pediatrician who is examining your child. Usually, before giving treatment, the doctor will first conduct a series of examinations on your child, including laboratory examinations, x-rays, and so on. Later, treatment can be done with outpatient care, or it can also be done with inpatient care at the hospital. Some types of drugs, such as antibiotics, cough medicines, fever relievers, and so on, can be given to the child's doctor so that his condition improves. In addition to undergoing doctor treatment, you also need to do the following steps so that your child's healing takes place more optimally:
Give the baby exclusive breast milk that is sufficient according to his needs
Keep the environment around the baby so that it is always healthy, good air circulation, away from cigarette smoke
Do not carelessly give the baby medication or other treatments without doctor's advice
Hope this helps ...
