When and how to bring down a child’s temperature.

Not all parents know when and how to bring down a child’s temperature if it is elevated. In this article I will tell you what temperature is normal, what medications to give and what should not be done.

Therefore, it makes no sense to “cure” the temperature, but you need to influence the cause of the disease. There is no connection between the magnitude of the temperature and whether the disease is viral or bacterial.

Sulfur cork in a child’s ear: causes and treatment

Sulfur plug in the ear is a fairly common phenomenon, especially in a child. This can cause certain troubles, and in the absence of proper treatment, it can even result in hearing loss.

Earwax has a certain functionality: it has an antiseptic property. Sulfurization is a natural process that allows the inner ear and eardrum to provide adequate protection against germs and hypothermia. In addition, sulfur provides additional moisture, acting as a lubricant to ensure the mobility of the membrane.

Typically, sulfur is produced enough to perform its functions, and all excess goes by itself during chewing or talking. However, in some cases, either abundant sulfur formation or difficulties with its removal can occur. In this case, the ear canal will be blocked. Continue reading
