The answer to a question of whether it is worth bathing the child if he got sick, and it has a high temperature of a body, not only parents, but also children's doctors try to find. About it there is a set of opinions, one of which assumes abstention from acceptance of a bathtub during a disease.
Having removed the nervousness inherent in each parent in days of a disease of the child it is worth reflecting on whether bathing to the newborn or more adult child in the period of a disease will do much harm.
To expiate – means to do much harm …
When you bathe the baby, only the lower part of his body is constantly in water. From above you water the child, it turns out that the body is cooled, again heats up at the time of washing by water. The similar procedure for the kid with the increased body temperature is not safe. Besides, after acceptance of a shower, one, two, three seconds pass until wraparound it in a towel, these seconds can serve not too kind service to already sick child.
Some people consider that the sick child can be brought together in a bath well to warm up an organism. This opinion is wrong as in the hot room to the kid can only become worse.
Bathing - the benefit
On the other hand, at the increased temperature the release of sweat with which there are undesirable toxins increases. If not to expiate the kid, all harmful slags will remain on skin.
Rash with which parents will begin to struggle will be a consequence of such toxic "blanket".
At contact by the excited increased child's temperature with water his body is cooled a little, temperature slightly falls down. However it is worth paying special attention that there is a difference between the words "bath", "rub off" and "wash". Bathing in a bathtub – a way to increase in problems. And here if you decide to wash up, for example, the child under a shower, you will be able to facilitate a condition of the kid. Special attention should be paid to temperature increase after receiving an inoculation. Pediatricians usually warn that the place of an inoculation cannot be wetted therefore if the inoculation was delivered to the child, in the investigation of what the body temperature increased, it is impossible to bathe the kid. This rule has no exceptions.
It is necessary to remind uneasy parents of the sick child the fact that kids easier than adults transfer temperature increase of a body, however it, as well as the adult, it is necessary to avoid stay on drafts at this time.
In olden days after bathing of the child it was wrapped up in a warm blanket. And today some doctors give the same council. They advise, on the contrary, not to wrap up children at slight increase of body temperature, and to cover with an easy sheet. Both doctors, and friends, and relatives, and the all-knowing Internet, but the answer to a question – can give advice that for the child and that is angry, can give the benefit only mom, only her loving heart intuitively feels the kid and knows what to make not to do much harm, and to help the beloved child.
