Diseases. Stomatitis in children: treatment at home
Children sometimes get sick, and nothingdo it. This is life, and young mothers would understand that before starting to call all the hospitals in the city, and at the same time, the rescue service, as soon as a sneeze or cough comes from the nursery. Sometimes, young parents have to face such an unpleasant problem as stomatitis in newborn children, whose treatment is prescribed by a doctor individually. Usually, the doctor advises to use acyclovir, levorinovuyu and oksolinovuyu ointment, and if we talk about the people's means, then, although it is better not to get too carried away, a packet of tea used to the sores may well help.
Yes, if a child's cold is enougha common disease (so common that many parents, especially without hesitation, have the habit of "driving" the baby to a kindergarten), in the case of stomatitis, the situation is much more serious. Inflammatory process on the mucous membrane in the oral cavity is a stomatitis. In children, treatment at home, of course, is only a delight, but before you take on this difficult matter, you should establish the cause of the disease.
Why does stomatitis occur?
Bacteria, viruses and fungi usually causestomatitis in children. Treatment at home without first visiting the dentist, alas, is impossible. So you should collect your will in a fist and go with a groaning child to a doctor who, if necessary, can, among other things, ask for a laboratory test for candidiasis and herpes. Without all this, as a rule, it is impossible to understand how to heal stomatitis in children. Home Treatment often accompanied by repeated trips to the dentist, who carefully monitors the course of the disease.
Stomatitis is of two types: aphthous (blisters anderosion) and ulcerative (actually, ulcers). The main symptoms are characteristic burning and acute pain in the affected area. Often a child can not eat and prefers not to eat lunch or dinner. As in the case of other diseases, stomatitis occurs due to several reasons.
- Injury of the oral cavity. It can be like scratches caused by solid food (many children like to chew crackers), and bites, or thermal damage.
- Weakened immunity. This contributes to the fact that the breeding ground for various bacteria and viruses blooms in a lush color.
- Use of "wrong" toothpaste. The well-known saying goes: "We are not that rich to buy cheap", but parents often sin that they get toothpaste "simpler".
- Violation of hygiene rules.
Means for stomatitis
Anesthetic - not the best remedy fora stomatitis for children, and hardly what doctor will recommend to remove or take off a pain "chemistry". Although, of course, with particularly acute forms of the disease, such drugs help at least eat and sleep. A good help in the fight against the insidious enemy is "Lidochlor Gel", which is lubricated by sores, and which, in addition, has an anesthetic character. You can even rinse your mouth with the children. Since they themselves do not know how to do this, parents must take care of this.
It may seem strange, but ifrub the oral cavity of the baby moistened in a solution of baking soda gauze, the symptoms of the disease will soon evaporate. In addition to soda, it is recommended to use a decoction of chamomile or calendula.
Of course, to make a child chew a bitter and scratchy leaf of aloe is almost impossible, but a good option is egg white, mixed with water.
