Treatment To Accelerate Rheumatic Healing In Children?
… my child has been diagnosed with rheumatism in children, because my child’s knee has swelling until he can’t walk, his body is also a little warm … I forgot to ask about abstinence from eating, and how healthy living tips for my child so that rheumatism is inconvenient leads to more dangerous things, thanks in advance 🙏 I’m quite worried about my child’s condition … because my child is still 6 years old
Thank you for the question.
Rheumatism (rheumatic fever) is a condition in which the body experiences inflammation due to an autoimmune disorder that is triggered by an infection, especially a throat infection by the group A Streptococcus bacteria, which is not handled properly. Clinically, children with rheumatism will experience a variety of clinical symptoms, ranging from fever, arthritis (characterized by pain, swelling, redness, and warmth), skin rashes, chest pain, heart murmurs, weakness, fatigue, fatigue, abnormal body movements and uncontrolled (Sydenham chorea), also certain behavioral changes (such as crying or laughing without cause).
The main goal of treatment for rheumatism in children is to eradicate the bacteria that causes it, minimize complaints, control inflammation, and prevent similar conditions from recurring. Usually, to overcome this condition, the doctor will give medicines, such as antibiotics, anti-inflammatory, and so on.
There are no views or special food recommendations that need to be lived by children with rheumatism. You just need to make sure your child consumes a lot of drink and a variety of foods and drinks that are of balanced nutritional value, rich in calories and protein, so that the immune system and stamina are maintained during the healing process. Do not forget, also give your child treatment to complete, as recommended by the doctor. So that the inflammation in the joints subsided, you can first apply warm water compresses. In addition, let your child rest a lot, and accompany him to continue his activities as usual.
That's all our explanation. For more details, consult directly with your doctor or pediatrician.
I hope this helps.
