Allergic conjunctivitis in a child: symptoms and treatment

I jokingly compare allergies to a caring grandmother. She is afraid that the child will get sick and begins to “wrap” him in 100 clothes. But what it leads to is not hard to guess. She wants the best, but in the end, the child has diaper rash and he overheats. Similarly occurs with the body with allergies. When the immune system detects an irritant and considers it dangerous, it “turns on” the protective reaction. But this reaction is inflammatory. If the immune system suffers from hyperprotection, just like a grandmother, then the protective functions are activated even when meeting with pollen. Of course, the body does this well-intentioned, but this is not easier.

Conjunctivitis in children: symptoms

Most often, allergies affect the eyes, and in 95% of cases, the nose also suffers. As a rule, the symptoms of conjunctivitis in children include rhinitis. This is due to the connection of the lacrimal ducts. The main signs by which the condition can be diagnosed are clearly visible to parents.

Audiological screening. Newborn hearing test

Any mother understands that after the baby is born, an endless series of tests and examinations does not end. Only now observations are made not of the pregnant woman, but of the baby itself. Audiological screening is one such examination. This type of diagnosis is possible only after obtaining parental consent. No one will forcefully diagnose the baby. Therefore, the responsibility to diagnose or not is entirely the responsibility of the parents. Perhaps this article will help you in making a decision.

Audioscreening for newborns
Audio screening of newborns consists of two stages.

The first is screening.
A newborn who is 3-4 days of age is examined by hearing with a special device. This is done in a maternity hospital. If you were discharged earlier than this time, then the doctor should set a date when you need to be diagnosed. Continue reading

Unexplained fever or high fever in a child without symptoms

Today I want to talk with you on the topic “fever of unknown origin.” This implies a high temperature, more than 38.3 degrees, which lasts more than 3 weeks. However, even a thorough examination does not give an answer to why it arose. Parents are worried, the child is suffering, so let’s figure it out now.

In the past, people believed that fever was something demonic and supernatural. They believed that it was necessary to get rid of it immediately. In the 18-19 centuries, many people died from yellow, purple, typhoid fever and dengue. The doctors of that time treated her as best they could, and often with wild methods. For example, they caused vomiting, sweating, or bleeding.

It’s good that medicine has gone far ahead. Modern people know that high fever is the body’s response to the disease, not the disease itself. When body temperature rises, it helps a person overcome infections. For example, 40-41 degrees slows the reproduction of viruses two hundred times. Also, it triggers the protective function of the immune system. More cells are released from the bone marrow into the bloodstream. The process occurs under the influence of the pattern of macrophages to cope with the absorption of bacteria. B cells produce more antibodies. Continue reading
