Many parents treat their children as a pearl on the palm. The children need to be a little bit of a small illness, and the parents will be distressed. However, because children are still small, their bodies are not complete, their immune systems are poorly functional, and they are more likely to get sick. Children are prone to many diseases, such as colds, hand, and mouth disease, chickenpox, fever, pneumonia, etc.
Some of these diseases are more obvious, and pneumonia is one of them. After children have pneumonia, they are easy to cough for a long time, and sometimes they cough at night. Parents heard the child’s cough all night, not to mention how heartache was. If you find that your child coughs frequently, pay more attention, and take it to the hospital for treatment if necessary.
Although pneumonia is more common, many parents still have some misunderstandings about pneumonia. Let’s take a look today.
Misunderstanding 1: Long -term fever is a pediatric pneumonia
It does not necessarily have a fever for a long time, but to have pneumonia. The onset of pneumonia requires a longer process, which can be manifested as high fever from 3 to 5 days. Cough gradually worsen, and phlegm can occur. When children breathe deeply, they can also cause severe cough.
In the period of high incidence of pneumonia, many viruses can develop into pneumonia after 24 hours of infection, and you need to pay more attention.
Misunderstanding 2: Pediatric pneumonia, infusion treatment effect is good
For pediatric pneumonia, what medicine and treatment methods are used, and you need to decide according to the child’s condition. Do not blindly use the infusion method for treatment. Oral medicine can achieve the effect as long as the right and pair of use, and it may not be treated with infusion.
Generally speaking, pneumonia is caused by a variety of pathogens. Whether the antibiotics are used for treatment should be treated according to the specific diagnosis results of the doctor. Mild children’s pneumonia can ensure daily water intake by diet, and no conventional venous injection is required. The treatment of pediatric pneumonia is based on the actual situation of children and doctors.
If 48 hours after treatment, there is no effect, high fever, or further deterioration such as breathing, such as shortness of breath and lips, etc., you need to treat the hospital in a timely manner.
Misunderstanding 3: The symptoms improve, stop the medicine immediately
Some parents found that their children had taken medicine and their symptoms were relieved, so they were ready to stop medicine for their children. Such behavior is not desirable. Different medicines have different courses, and the course of treatment can fully exert the effect of the drug.
Misunderstanding 4: Symptoms have not improved, hurry to change the medicine
Many drugs are not immediate, and it takes a certain time to achieve the effect. It is recommended that patients with pneumonia under the guidance of a doctor take at least 3 days to evaluate the effective medication effect.
Don’t listen to “other children treat pneumonia with other medicines”, because the situation of each pediatric pneumonia is different, and the medication still needs to be used under the guidance of a doctor.
