Four notes on diarrhea in children
Pediatric diarrhea is caused by different causes, and it is also accompanied by vomiting and fever.
For a long period of diarrhea, the body will lose a lot of water and nutrients, and it will lose a lot of electrolytes, such as sodium, potassium, magnesium, etc., leading to resonance and resonance, and even acid-base balance imbalance.
How to effectively prevent and treat pediatric diarrhea is the concern of the majority of parents, and summarized four points of attention: First, do not blindly fast.
Children with diarrhea and dehydration temporarily fast except severe vomiting?
Outside of 6 hours, you should continue to eat to recover the condition, change the course of disease, and promote recovery.
When diarrhea, a lot of water and inorganic salts will be lost. Fasting or excessive diet control will increase bowel movements and make diarrhea worse, and even affect children’s health.
Therefore, if you are breastfeeding children, you should continue to replace with pure breast milk, but pay attention to small meals.
If it is artificially pregnant, replace lactose-free milk powder.
Children who are adding complementary food can appropriately reduce the amount of complementary food, and can also suspend complementary food.
Properly adjust the diet to light.
Babies advocate breastfeeding and take as needed.
Second, antidiarrheals should not be used in the early stages of diarrhea.
The treatment of diarrhea requires a certain course of treatment.
The course of acute diarrhea is usually within two weeks. At the same time, diarrhea is a reaction of the body, which is conducive to the discharge of toxins and indigestible food.
Therefore, children with diarrhea do not need to rush to stop diarrhea immediately, especially in the early stage of diarrhea, drugs for inhibiting intestinal peristalsis cannot be used, but dehydration and malnutrition caused by diarrhea should be treated.
The third is not to abuse antibiotics.
Most pediatric diarrhea is caused by a viral infection and caused by improper use, so antibiotics are not effective.
Because many bacteria grow in the body’s intermediates, they maintain a relatively balanced state in the body according to a certain ratio.
If antibiotics are used, killing and killing beneficial bacteria in the human body will be killed, while those susceptible to antibiotics, staphylococci, pathogenic bacteria, causing pathogenic colitis, etc. will cause loss and multiply, resulting in dysbiosis.
It is recommended that medication should be directed by a pediatrician from the hospital.
Fourth, take precautionary measures.
Pay attention to food hygiene, and food should be fresh.
The utensils and milkware should be boiled and disinfected regularly.
Children wash their hands before and after meals, and cut their nails frequently.
Usually pay attention to enhance physical fitness, strengthen outdoor activities, pay attention to physical exercise in children, improve the body’s immunity, and avoid infection with various diseases and adverse stimuli.
Infants and young children should add soft cloth diapers and change them frequently. Wash the nozzles with warm water and blot dry after each stool. The skin will be red with 5% acid ointment and massaged for a while to promote local blood circulation.
Avoid using airtight plastic cloth or blankets to prevent red hips.
Pay attention to the hygiene of the perineum to prevent ascending urinary tract infections, especially for girls.
Do disinfection and isolation, and live in separate rooms with other children.
Utensils, clothing, and diapers should be dedicated. Wash your hands before and after caring for children. The stools and contaminated clothing of children with diarrhea should be disinfected to prevent cross-infection.
