The weak immunity and close communication in children's collective are the main reasons for frequent colds at the child. Quite often pathogenic process is dragged out for long weeks, and long-awaited recovery is replaced by the next cold and cough. But not to allow a disease to drag on, better to start intensive treatment at once.
It is required to you
- - mustard plasters, set for a compress (cotton wool, an oilcloth, bandage);
- - pharmaceutical drops for a nose, carrots juice;
- - coarse salt for warming up.
1. That quicker to cure coldand coughthan at the child, estimate a condition of the kid: whether it is possible to apply thermal procedures, and they are contraindicated at high temperature and purulent inflammation whether there are other doubtful symptoms, life-threatening the child and demanding medical supervision. If is not present, you conduct treatment independently and use for this purpose the mustard plasters warming compresses on a thorax, warming up of bosoms of a nose. These procedures improve blood circulation at the expense of what remove inflammatory process in bronchial tubes and a nasopharynx.
2. For a compress use usual warm water. Moisten in it fabric, slightly wring out and apply on the top third of a breast. Cover fabric with an oilcloth, cotton wool and bandage or wrap up in a diaper cross-wise. During imposing of a compress you watch that each its layer was 1-1.5 cm more than previous. Do for 3-5 days for the night till the morning. For warming up of a breast mustard plasters use only that are isolated in paper. And as children are impatient to pain, put them to skin dry, then they will heat much longer, without causing at the same time irritation.
3. Surely you give to drink to the child warm drinks. For mitigation of cough and fluidifying of a phlegm give the warmed-up milk with mineral water or with honey and a small pinch of soda, and for removal of a phlegm from bronchial tubes - expectorant teas, for example, from a root of a licorice, a leaf of currant or raspberry.
4. For treatment of cold at the child several times a day warm up nose bosoms. Heat coarse salt in a frying pan, fill it in 2 sacks and tie. That they did not burn skin, put from a nose at first facecloths on each side, and on them sacks. Instead of salt you can use hot egg. You do not carry out this procedure at purulent cold. In this case use the following method.
5. To cure purulent cold at the child, use pharmaceutical drops, and only after allocations become transparent – folk remedies, for example, carrot or carrot-beet juice, on 3-5 drops. However previously clean a nose with salt solution. Part 1 tsp in 0.5 l of boiled warm water, take her in the syringe with a rubber tip and enter serially into each nostril. That water did not get into airways or a middle ear, put the child close to a bathtub and, holding him with one hand for a chin, slightly incline the head of the kid forward. This procedure will hardly be pleasant to it therefore at strong resistance just pump out slime a rubber barrel.
6. If cold at the child is not followed by an indisposition or high temperature, do not forbid it to walk. Fresh air has the revitalizing effect, and the mobility during walks improves blood circulation that in addition promotes treatment of cold and cough at the child.
