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.

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.

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

General blood test in children: decoding and norms

Complete blood count (KLA) or “clinical” – a popular technique for laboratory diagnostics in pediatrics. It helps a specialist to assess the health of the child and identify violations if they are present. Therefore, KLA is prescribed for children with various diseases in order to find the root cause of the problem and choose a rational treatment. For example, if the disease is caused by a viral infection, then appropriate treatment is required, and not antibacterial. This analysis is able to indicate the nature of the disease. The results of a general blood test can be affected by a number of factors, which we will discuss below.

Preparing a child for a general blood test

First of all, if the child already understands where they are taking him, then you can play a doctor. Let the baby take blood from the toys himself, and then go see how the specialist does it. A child will not be afraid to go to the clinic unless doctors scare him from childhood. It is better to play doctor more often and visit specialists as planned. Then people in bathrobes will not cause horror in the child. Continue reading
