More than anything, parents want their baby not to get sick. Unfortunately, this is almost impossible. If a baby has a runny nose, then this must be taken very seriously. After all, the distance between his nasal septa is small, and babies cannot breathe through their mouths. Therefore, a runny nose can prevent a child from sleeping and eating. Because of this, the baby becomes whiny and irritable.
It is necessary
- - pharmaceutical camomile;
- - sea salt;
- - syringe;
- - children's pipette;
- - thermometer;
- - baby drops from a runny nose or allergies.
First of all, parents need to determine what caused the runny nose. It could be an infection or an allergic reaction. If, in addition to a runny nose, the child has a fever, a cough appears, most likely this is an infectious disease. With such a runny nose, you can cope quickly enough, within a week. You can use drops for babies or herbal decoctions. But do not forget to consult your pediatrician.
Allergic rhinitis is often associated with a reaction to pollen, which occurs usually in the spring and summer. Or it can be a reaction to pets or dust. Allergic rhinitis can occur with or without fever. With an allergic rhinitis, there is often a large amount of watery discharge. You also need to pay attention to other signs of allergies - redness of the mucous membrane of the eyes, sneezing. If the pediatrician diagnoses "allergic rhinitis", then antihistamines are used in the treatment of this disease - drops or syrup for infants.
In order to help your baby cope with a runny nose, you need to rinse his nose with a syringe with a solution of chamomile or sea salt. Do this 5-6 times a day. First, use a mild pipette to drop the solution into both nostrils, then empty the nose with a syringe. This procedure must be done very carefully so as not to damage the mucous membrane of your baby.
