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.

The child caught a cold: advice to parents

Did the child catch a cold? In order for him to recover faster, he must carefully perform medical appointments, give him bitter medicines and perform many procedures, sometimes not very pleasant. We hope that our advice will come in handy, dear parents.

Measure temperature
For children of all ages, a thermometer is placed under the armpit, so you can measure the temperature reliably and safely (for example, in the rectum the temperature is 10C higher, and there is a chance of injuring its mucous membrane). In order for the child to be pleased, warm the thermometer in your hand for several seconds, shake it off and put it on the child. It is enough to hold it for 5-6 minutes. At this time, read the book to the baby, tell a fairy tale – try to make this procedure enjoyable. It is necessary to control the body temperature 2-3 times a day, preferably at the same time.

Focus your child’s attention on WHAT you give him as little as possible and offer to drink medicine, as it were, by the way. Continue reading

Rubella virus

Unvaccinated children 2-9 years old are most often affected. Rubella is especially dangerous in the first 3 months of pregnancy – in this case, severe congenital malformations of the child often develop, intrauterine death of the fetus is possible. In general, rubella is more severe in adults than in children.

The source of infection is a person with a clinically expressed or worn-out form of rubella. Routes of transmission – airborne (in conversation with the patient, kisses) and vertical (from mother to fetus). A contact route of infection is also possible – through children’s toys. The patient becomes contagious 1 week before the rash appears and continues to secrete the virus for 5-7 days after the rash appears. A child with congenital rubella excretes the pathogen for a longer time (up to 21-20 months).

What’s happening?
The incubation period of the disease lasts from 11 to 24 days (usually 16-20). Continue reading
