Pollution - How It Can Affect Your Child's Lungs?

Pollution - How It Can Affect Your Child's Lungs?

Air pollution is known to take a toll on the lungs of even the healthiest adults. So, it comes as no surprise that the effects of this pollution on the lungs of children is deemed as a grave situation, full of health hazards including the onset of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorders and conditions like asthma and other lung disorders. Read on to find out more about the link between air pollution and its effect on the lungs of children.

Children's Lungs: Mostly, all the organs of a child's body are considered delicate and not fully matured until the child reaches a certain age. The main and largest part of the child's lungs will usually grow only after the child is born, much like the arms and legs. In fact, it is a medically proven fact that about 80% of the tiniest of air sacs grow after the child's birth, these are called the alveoli and they facilitate the transfer of the oxygen into the bloodstream with a life-sustaining function that is built into our lungs. These alveoli continue to grow until the child becomes an adult. 

Immunity and Infections: Like the lungs of the child, the immunity of the child is also still in its growth phase, and is very much, unlike the immunity that an adult enjoys. This makes the child more susceptible to infections that are usually carried by air pollution in today's day and age of urban living when myriad pollutants are sent into the air every single day. Also, since children play outdoors more often and spend more time breathing in this air, they are more prone to these infections and lung or respiratory ailments due to this reason. Various studies and tests have shown inflammation in the respiratory passages caused by deposits of carbon dioxide emissions in the lungs of children.

Symptoms: Usually, the very first symptoms that show that air pollution is affecting your child's lungs can be seen when persistent coughing and wheezing sets in, without any proper reason. Also, when the child faces bronchial infections time and time again, all these are indicators of hazardous effects of air pollution in children.

Respiratory problems: Apart from respiratory problems, which can lead to asthmatic attacks, hay fever and allergies as well as other COPD ailments, there are other related dangers as well. These can happen when constant choking and obstruction of oxygen due to pollution becomes a regular affair. These include stroke and brain damage which can eventually also lead to a higher risk of dementia. 

How can you protect your child during such times?

  1. Restrict outdoor activity for the time being, especially during the early morning and evening
  2. Make sure that your child wears a face mask when outside, preferably N95 or 99
  3. Use air purifiers at home 
  4. Go green and use indoor plants that can remove indoor toxins
  5. Boost your child's immunity
  6. Lastly, keep a track of air quality index in your locality

As far as the teeth are concerned please take her to the dentist for a review (this will help to take corrective measures on time ). You can start Homeopathy for your baby which has no side effects and helps to balance all the aspects (digestion, appetite, immunity and growth) and promote wellbeing. You can contact me for further clarification about Homeopathic treatment or chat online.

If you have given azithromycin for 6 days already then no need to repeat it. Whether its simple allergic cough or infective cough will be differentiated by your doctor. Antibiotics like azithromycin are given for infective cough. Any other antibiotics needs to be given or not will also be decided by your doctor. Precautions- regular handwash of bsby and all thr people who are in contact with the baby. Also in babies environment there should not be major temperature changes suddenly as this also mskes the baby prone to allergic cough and cold. Do not take thr baby in dusty areas as this will trigger allergic cough and cold. For cough and cold in children give hot food and liguids. This helps in clearing the throat and swelling therein. Happy Parenting.

All newborns cry for hunger, being wet after urination and for passing urine. YOu have to check up all causes and burp well after feeds and avoid bottle feeding. Give only breast milk.

Don't worry. Breastfed babies may pass seven eight times stools per day or once in four five days. Both are normal if child is playful, active and putting on weight. When child does not pass stool daily, she should pass gas daily, so that we know it's not obstruction and doesn't need any treatment. Obstruction requires immediate medical attention. Constipated stools will be hard and will cause pain while passing where as normal stools passed after four five days will be soft and will have normal consistency.

6 to 7 attacks are very common per year. As they have less immunity. Avoid antibiotics in simple common cold. Not to worry about common cold and cough.

General Physician,
What is link between calcium deficiency and new born child? Describe about calcium deficiency in a new born child?
First of all why do think a newborn is deficient in calcium which does not happen normally. Babies exhibit several symptoms while suffering from calcium deficiency, which include: Insomnia Muscle Cramps Muscle aches Jitteriness Tremors Twitchiness Jerking movements of limbs Lowered heart rate Seizures, due to a reduction in oxygen supply to the brain Convulsions Low calcium levels can cause low blood pressure in your baby Tongue-thrusting, tongue and lip twitching, eye fluttering, etc.
