Many parents, with the mentality of “the moon is bright in another country”, spend a lot of money on sea-panning medicine for their babies.
So, are these numerous sea drugs worth buying?
Today, Dr. Clove invited his good friend, Mr. Ji Lianmei, to analyze and analyze the nine popular sea-panning drugs.
Don’t try to find these medicines in the sea.
1. Haitao Children’s Cold Cough Medicine: Bread Superman
Japanese Bread Superman Blue Cough Medicine, which is an over-the-counter drug in Japan, has become a popular cough medicine among friends due to its good cough relieving effect.
However, it contains codeine, a central potent antitussive, which is banned by the China Food and Drug Administration for children under 12 years old, and is harmful to the nervous system of infants.
However, bread Superman of other colors is mostly a compound preparation. If you are not careful when using it, you may repeat the medication, bringing unnecessary side effects.
2. Burt’s Bees Lithospermum Cream (Magic Lithospermum Cream)
This is a universal [American Cool Oil] for the treatment of mosquito bites, skin contusions, knife wounds and scalds. The main ingredients are Lithospermum Leaf, Lavender Essential Oil, Almond Essential Oil, Olive Oil, Cocoa Butter, Beeswax and Vitamin E.
U.S. FDA has issued a warning on the possibility of liver damage caused by oral administration of Lithospermum euchroma, requiring that products such as Lithospermum euchroma cream should not be used for skin damage wounds when applied externally.
For infants, pregnant women and patients with liver insufficiency, the sea-panned Arnebia euchroma cream should be used with caution.
In addition, it is applicable to children over 2 years old. Mint cream in China is a similar product and there is no need to find it in the sea.
3. Prospan Small Green Leaf Syrup
This syrup contains ivy extract and is a German herbal medicine.
The efficacy and safety of children’s use are still unclear. However, there are many kinds of diseases causing cough, which need to be treated according to the etiology. Cough syrup cannot be used simply to relieve cough.
It is good to buy these medicines in China.
4. Little Remedies Silicone Drops
Simethicone drops can relieve infants’ flatulence. Domestic hospital pharmacies have legally imported simethicone, which is cheaper.
When using drugs, pay attention to the validity period after opening the bottle.
5. Culturelle Conzelle Infant LGG Probiotics
There are also legally imported Kangcuile probiotics in China. Parents should pay attention to the preservation temperature of the drugs when using them.
Once again, I would like to remind you that the only indication for probiotics that has definite curative effect is diarrhea, and there is no definite curative effect for other indications.
6. Little Noses Nasal Drops for Infants
Nasal drops can moisten nasal cavity, soften nasal scab, clean nose and relieve mild nasal obstruction. There are also similar nasal drops in China.
Whether using sea panning or domestic nasal drops, attention should be paid to:
For those who purchase normal saline, record the opening time before use, and the use time of a single bottle should not exceed the storage time after opening the single bottle.
7. Haitao Children’s Antipyretic Drugs: Australian Panadol Cold Antipyretic Analgesic Solution, German Hexal Antipyretic Suppository
Whether it is Australia’s [antipyretic drug] or Germany’s antipyretic suppository, there are two kinds of antipyretic active ingredients widely used in children worldwide: acetaminophen and ibuprofen.
It is safe to use at the recommended dose in the instructions, but many people cannot understand the instructions and there is a risk of excessive use.
There are safe and reliable antipyretic and analgesic drugs in China. There is really no need to spend money and let the baby take this risk.
These medicines are available
8. Ddrops Vitamin D3 Infant Drops
Can buy, but must pay attention to avoid light and cool transportation, after opening the bottle should not be stored for a long time, to prevent grease deterioration.
There are many foreign manufacturers of vitamin supplements and there are many choices. If you buy such drugs, you should pay attention to distinguish whether each dose is one drop or one dropper.
9. Oralpadon oral rehydration salt
There are many flavors of oral rehydration salts for children abroad, which are more suitable for children’s preferences than the formula with a single taste in China.
Remind everyone that when using oral rehydration salts, they should pay attention to the amount of rehydration and ensure that they are purchased from reliable channels.
