Is it possible to walk with a child with fever?

Pediatricians are often asked: “Is it possible to walk with a child with fever?” This question is especially popular in the cold season, when children are more susceptible to infectious diseases. The fact is that their immunity only gets acquainted with the outside world. Microbes and bacteria are present in the body, but the protective system prevents them from multiplying. But if some unfavorable factors influence the body, then they provoke the development of the disease. Immunity is trying to cope, for example, with hypothermia, and we can say, “distracted” from the fight against harmful microorganisms. As a result, the child fell ill, but is it possible and necessary to walk with temperature? We will understand the problem and find out the answer.

It is necessary to take into account weather conditions, the diagnosis of a small patient, not only his temperature, but also the general condition.

Barley in the eye of a child. What to do

Barley in a child, the treatment of which can be varied, is considered a fairly common disease in children. It can occur at any age. In fact, this is an acute, often purulent inflammation of the hair sac on the eyelash. Often it captures the adjacent glands. In the vast majority of cases, it is provoked by the bacterium Staphylococcus aureus. A similar phenomenon in children happens in one eye, or in both.

Parents, in this case, are wondering: if barley is in the child’s eye, what should I do? And is it possible to infect them and infect someone with barley? Is it possible that he will repeat again, or that he will hit the second eye? It is worth saying right away that you can’t get infected with barley, however, it is able to form again, for the third time and so on. Moreover, this can happen as soon as possible. This can happen because a weak childish body has not been able to effectively resist microbes, in other words, its immunity is too weak. Most often, barley of the upper and lower eyelids appears as a result of the fact that the child has slipped through. Continue reading

Delayed speech development in children

The delay in speech development, abbreviated as RRDS, represents a later mastery of oral speech skills by children under 3 years of age compared to the average age norm. The delay in speech development can be qualitative or quantitative, it is expressed in the insufficient development of the vocabulary and in the lack of expressive conversation, and may also be the absence of phrasal speech in a child of 2 years. If the baby does not speak coherently and more or less understandably by the age of 3, his speech development is delayed.

Medical examination

Children with a delay in speech development must necessarily be consulted by a pediatric neurologist and pediatric otolaryngologist, as well as a speech therapist and psychologist. However, the latter is not necessary and is done only by necessity. In some cases, a medical examination and diagnosis are necessary. Further, corrective work is carried out aimed at eliminating the delay in speech development. This must necessarily include psychological and pedagogical, and if necessary, medical assistance.
