Allergies to cats: symptoms and causes

Allergies in children to cats are one of the most common types of allergies. Many people mistakenly think that it is the animal’s hair that is to blame, but this is not so! We will talk about what causes allergies to cats in a child, about possible symptoms, types of reactions and solutions to this problem in the article.

Cat Allergy: Causes

Indeed, the allergy to cats is not to blame for the hair of the animal. The main cause and catalyst for allergies are proteins – Fel D4 and Fel D1. These proteins are found in the saliva of cats, skin epithelium, and also in excrement.

For this reason, getting a sphynx cat or shaving your pet is not an option. Such measures will not solve the problem, since the source of the allergy is not hidden in the animal’s hair. Continue reading

Unexplained fever or high fever in a child without symptoms

Today I want to talk with you on the topic “fever of unknown origin.” This implies a high temperature, more than 38.3 degrees, which lasts more than 3 weeks. However, even a thorough examination does not give an answer to why it arose. Parents are worried, the child is suffering, so let’s figure it out now.

In the past, people believed that fever was something demonic and supernatural. They believed that it was necessary to get rid of it immediately. In the 18-19 centuries, many people died from yellow, purple, typhoid fever and dengue. The doctors of that time treated her as best they could, and often with wild methods. For example, they caused vomiting, forced to sweat or bleed.

It’s good that medicine has gone far ahead. Modern people know that high fever is the body’s response to the disease, not the disease itself. When body temperature rises, it helps a person overcome infections. For example, 40-41 degrees slows down the multiplication of viruses. Also, it triggers the protective function of the immune system. More cells are released from the bone marrow into the bloodstream. The process occurs under the influence of the pattern of macrophages to cope with the absorption of bacteria. B cells produce more antibodies. Continue reading

Dental caries in children: causes, stages and treatment

Caries is a tooth injury that can occur with a child even at the time of teething. As practice shows, up to seven years this dental disease is detected in 80% of patients. Unfortunately, this indicator is growing every year. This is due to the fact that the enamel of the child’s teeth is not yet fully formed and cannot fully resist microorganisms that destroy children’s teeth. Early caries develops very quickly and leads to unpleasant consequences if treatment is not started in advance. But many moms and dads continue to ignore this problem.

Tooth decay in children

Caries is the destruction of the tooth, which begins with the dissolution of the mineral substances that make up its composition, due to which cavities form, or, as we are used to call it, “holes”.

Despite the fact that we were convinced that the main cause of caries is sweet, this is not entirely true. The main factor causing caries is microorganisms. These bacteria form acids on the enamel of the tooth acid, which lead to the “leaching” of minerals. Continue reading
