Most children are often sick with angina. Diagnosis of this disease does not present any difficulties and many parents are able to put their baby's diagnosis themselves.
But not everyone knows how to cure a disease in a child
Angina or tonsillitis is called inflammation of the tonsils. The disease can occur in various forms: catarrhal, follicular, lacunar. The last two forms of tonsillitis are also called purulent angina.
Symptoms and Causes of
Disease in children is usually caused by streptococci or staphylococci. These microbes can be in the oral cavity and with hypothermia, a decrease in immunity lead to the development of the disease.
Angina is also considered an infectious disease;she can get infected from a sick child.
When the disease children complain of pain in the throat, worse when swallowing. Their body temperature rises, appetite decreases.
When diagnosed with tonsillitis: complications are very likely.
The disease itself is not a serious illness. But if it is not treated, it can lead to very sad consequences. Paratonzillar abscess, rheumatism, glomerulonephritis, phlegmonous tonsillitis - this is not a complete list of those complications that this disease can cause in children( treatment of the disease can prevent them).
Predisposing factors to the development of the disease are: inadequate nutrition, adverse environmental factors, caries, sinusitis, as well as obstructed nasal breathing( eg, with adenoids or rhinitis).
These factors lead to a decrease in the local and general reactivity of the baby's body and create conditions for the formation of chronic inflammation in the tonsils.
Treatment of angina should be not only local, but also general. The kid should necessarily be prescribed antibiotics with a desirable broad spectrum of action. In addition, prescribe antihistamines and vitamin therapy.
All this is called a general treatment, becauseit affects the entire body.
Than to treat a throat?
With sore throat it is important to regularly gargle with solutions of antiseptics, use various sprays for topical application. To rinse your throat, you can prepare a decoction of chamomile, sage, eucalyptus leaves.
But not all children know how to gargle. Therefore, for them, you can buy in the pharmacy any remedy for this ailment for children in the form of candies.
For local treatment of angina, it is perfectly possible to use a spray for children. Such sprays include antiseptics and pain medications. Therefore, when used in children, the pain in the throat passes quickly.
Compresses for children
In angina children often put compresses on the neck, which contribute to the speedy recovery of the baby. It should be remembered that for compresses you can not use pure alcohol, only vodka.
And also the fact that at a high body temperature, the production of a pack is strictly prohibited!
We treat chronic angina in children
In case of exacerbation, treatment is carried out in the same way as treatment of acute sore throat.
In the compensation stage, the treatment of chronic illness is directed primarily at increasing the overall resistance of the baby's body. For this purpose immunostimulating preparations, vitamins, biogenic stimulators are appointed. The child should be engaged in physiotherapy exercises. It shows the holding of sanatorium treatment.
A good effect in the treatment of chronic disease is the washing of lacunae of the tonsils with a solution of antibiotics or antiseptics. Children can be assigned and some physiotherapeutic procedures, such as microwave therapy, UHF, mud therapy. In chronic illness in children, it is necessary to cure all carious teeth.
Conservative treatment is carried out 2 times a year. Some doctors believe that this treatment should be carried out every quarter, i.e.4 times a year. With its ineffectiveness, the operative treatment - tonsillectomy( removal of palatine tonsils) is indicated.
