Treatment Of Baker Cysts In Children?
Sorry for asking and asking for a solution … my 7-year-old child is suffering from a baker’s cyst … can white turmeric be able to treat a baker’s cyst? thank you
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Baker cyst is a term for fluid-filled sacs that form a lump behind the knee, and this condition can worsen if the patient is actively moving or there is pressure on the knee. This condition often strikes children around 4-7 years and adults 35-70 years.
These cysts appear generally caused by a lump of excess fluid in the knee joint. The trigger can be in the form of rheumatic inflammation, inflammation of bones and joints, stretching cartilage, injury during exercise, and certain knee problems. In some cases, Baker's cysts can appear on their own for no apparent reason. This condition is called a primary or idiopathic Baker cyst.
Regarding your question, so far research on the effect of turmeric on the healing of Baker's cysts is still inadequate. Naturally, the treatment that you can do independently is to compress the cyst with an ice bag for 10-30 minutes, raise the leg position or tie it with an elastic cloth and rest your feet with not much walking first. Medical treatment was not always given, because it can heal by itself. Even if it needs treatment because it is already severe, it is usually in the form of anti-inflammatory and anti-pain medications, excessive fluid suctioning, surgery and physiotherapy.
Our advice, it would be far better if you check your child's condition first with a pediatric surgeon. Your pediatrician will later determine whether your child's condition is indeed a Baker cyst, and if so, it needs further treatment or not. So, hopefully answering your question.
