Treatment For Children Who Have Difficulty Breathing?
Mlm. I want to ask. This is my 1.5 year old child. If the breath is like having a cold, but he doesn’t have a cold. Maybe it’s sinusitis symptoms ?! And how is the treatment? Thank you
Hello Anjar, Thank you for the question.
For how long has your child experienced these symptoms? Does your child experience other symptoms such as coughing, fever, runny nose, fussiness, difficulty breathing? Your complaint can be caused by the following conditions:
the presence of foreign matter entering the nose
rhinitis, which is inflammation of the walls of the nasal cavity, for example due to colds or allergies
sinusitis, which is inflammation of the sinuses (air-filled cavities located under the cheekbones, nose, eyes, and forehead)
deviation of the nasal septum
adenoid gland swelling
To find out the right treatment, of course you need to know in advance what causes the symptoms experienced by your child. Therefore, you should consult with an ENT specialist about your child's condition. The doctor will ask about your child's complaints and do tests on your child including nasal endoscopy if needed. After confirming the cause, the new doctor can provide the right treatment. For the time being, please try to give a hot drink or invite your child to breathe hot steam from a bowl of hot water to relieve his breathing. Keep your child away from toys or small objects that can get into the nose.
Hopefully this information is useful for you.
