Sore throat in children can be caused by pharyngitis, tonsillitis or laryngitis. Symptoms that can be experienced by children are:
Pain when swallowing
Swollen lymph nodes around the neck or lower jaw
Cough and cold
Mothers need to be vigilant if children show symptoms such as:
Hard to breathe
The sound of breathing like wheezing
Cough with a high pitch or like a barking sound
Severe ear pain or pus from the ear
The child cannot eat and drink at all
A rash appears on the child's skin
If the child shows severe symptoms as mentioned above, you should immediately consult a child to the doctor.
Pharyngitis, tonsillitis, and laryngitis are often caused due to viral infections and some are caused by bacterial infections. In a sore throat due to a viral infection, treatment is generally only supportive, namely by providing adequate hydration / fluids in the form of drinks and food, giving fever-lowering drugs and warm compresses to reduce children's fever, giving warm water rinse + salt, giving warm drinks like tea mixed with ginger, and enough rest. Avoid snacking children outside or eating foods that are not guaranteed hygiene. A good immune system will automatically fight the infection and the child will generally experience improvement after 5-7 days.
While in the case of throat due to bacterial infection, symptoms generally appear more severe, can be accompanied by white patches and swollen suppuration in the tonsils, higher fever, and a child's condition that looks worse. Bacterial infections need to be treated with antibiotics and should be checked first by a doctor to determine whether it really requires the therapy.
A child with a sore throat often spits out food. In such cases the mother can feed the child smaller portions and softer consistency (for example porridge or soup food). Replace fluids that come out through vomiting with electrolyte fluids such as ORS or salt sugar solution. Give a little but often drink, can use a spoon if the child is still nauseating. If vomiting is severe, the child can be given vomiting medication by a doctor. Children who vomit continuously can become dehydrated (lack of fluids). Dehydration in older children is characterized by dry lips, eyes that appear to be cocky, pinched skin in the abdomen returns slowly, excessive thirst, and reduced urinary volume. If there are these signs, it means the child is still in a state of lack of fluids, mothers can more often give drink to the child while monitoring changes in the signs of dehydration. If within 24 hours the child does not BAK at all but the child looks good not weak and there are no other signs of dehydration, you should still take it to the doctor to find out other causes of the child not BAK. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
