Treatment Of Colds And Nasal Congestion In Babies?
Good evening.. my child has a cold, at night his nose is blocked, so my child has difficulty breathing, what I want to ask is what medicine should I give my child, Doctor?
Nasal congestion can be a factor that reduces the quality of a person's sleep, both from childhood to adulthood. Nasal congestion is not only caused by accumulated mucus, but also from the swollen inner wall of the nose. This swelling is caused by an allergic process that can be triggered by infection or by allergens such as dust, dirt, and so on. While sleeping, this swelling causes a person to have difficulty breathing and interferes with sleep quality.
One trick that can be used is to elevate the position of the head while sleeping so that swelling can be reduced. In addition, the inside of the nose is cleaned with saline solution. For small children, there are nasal drops that contain saline sold in pharmacies, to help thin mucus and wash the nose. The diluted mucus can then be easily expelled, or inhaled using a nasal aspirator. However, if the condition is so bothersome, don't hesitate to see a doctor. Here we attach an article about nasal congestion. Hope it is useful.
