How to Protect Your Child From Lung Infection

How to Protect Your Child From Lung Infection

Children are found to be more prone to falling sick than adults. This is not only due to their lower immunity, but also the carelessness of the elders around. Since it is not expected of children to take precautions, it is up to the parents to take care of that. The following is a list of ways to protect your child from one of the most common kinds of illness encountered by children lung infection.

  1. Avoiding smoking in front of children: It is a well established fact that passive smoking or being in proximity to a smoker is almost as harmful as smoking itself. Parents who smoke in the presence of their children are putting the latter at the risk of lung infections and various serious lung conditions. Thus, children should be kept away from tobacco smoke as much as possible.
  2. Limited use of mosquito repellents near children: Mosquito repellents have been known to cause asthmatic attacks in small children. The liquidators and the mosquito coils contain chemicals which should not be inhaled, especially by children.
  3. Avoiding air pollution: Air pollution causes irreparable damage to the lungs of children. Harmful gases and smoke from vehicles can lead to asthma, or even lung cancer, in children. To avoid this as much as possible, children should be made to wear pollution masks, especially while travelling through busy streets with heavy traffic.
  4. Avoiding objects which can cause allergic reactions or act as triggers: The triggers vary from one child to another and for some, there might not be any trigger at all. However, it is the responsibility of the parents to keep the children away from things, which might cause allergic reactions. Examples of such objects are, certain fabrics, fur of animals, incense sticks, perfumes, talcum powder, citrus food, peanut, pollen, flowers, dust, fumes and so on.
  5. Teaching them personal hygiene: Teaching children to carry handkerchiefs, cover their mouths while coughing or sneezing, washing their hands properly, and other good hygiene habits, can combat lung infections to a great extent, as these help prevent the spread of germs.
  6. Timely vaccinations: Proper vaccination acts as a precautionary measure for lung infections in children. Thus, parents should get their children vaccinated after consulting the respective physician.

Feeding uptil 1years is more than sufficient. After that baby gets nothing from feed but mother looses her calcium. Try to feed your child with proper food at night. Try to make her sleep with someone elze except you. In few days she will leave the night habit also.

I am a new mommy of 43 days old baby girl. I breastfeed my baby daily but there is a lack of milk some times. At that time as per doctor's suggestion powder milk is giving to her. But today her stool is seen as green in colour. Is some thing wrong with her? As a new mom an in tension with this. What may be the reason for that green colour? Did I get in to a hospital soon with my baby?

It is the result of powdered milk and it should not be given in bottle. You take Lactare for increasing milk and if you do only breastfeed the baby's motion will be normal. If at all you give other milks prepare exactly as per the instruction and feed it with sepon or filler not bottle.

Personally I would say don't give bottle with breast. Most of mothers think that milk is insufficient. But it's not true. Weigh the child to find out adequacy of milk. And child should be fed every two hrly at two months. Breast should be given to child in consonance of his age in months. Three month old child is fed three hrly and. Six month old is given breast feed six hrly. Breast feed should be for 10-15 min. On each breast.

Bed wetting is called enuresis. It could be due to the immature bladder which cause her to do it in bed without letting her know. I would advise you to go for homoeopathic treatment. It gives best results in bed wetting.

Good evening. My daughter 5 years old has a high temperature like 39,2-39,7 for 4 days already. Nurafen and Paracetamol help for a while and temperature drops after intake for 2-3 hours and then comes back. Also her nose blocked (she breaths with hew mouth open during her sleep) but not running. No other symptoms. What are possible diagnosis? For how long can I proceed with Nurafen and Paracetamol? What vital signs should I monitor and when I should run to the hospital?

Ideally you shall contact your doctor whenever fever is more than 48 hours long. To diagnose it better. Watch for any sign of rash. Low urine out put, lethargy. Poor intake. Retro orbital pain joint pain etc.

Sucking finger at this age indicate that baby is either not being breast feed properly or not on breast feed. Otherwise baby may continue sucking now and then but take care of hygiene.

Gynaecomastia can be physiological. Your child needs help with diet and exercise to correct his obesity.
