The newborn baby is extremely delicate and meets various situations. If parents do not know the truth and do not know what is going on, they will use various mysterious theories to explain it.
For example, no matter whether the baby has too much eye excrement, nosebleeds, constipation, or other manifestations, parents will say that the child is [irritated] and should give the child [irritated], and then take out honeysuckle dew, coptis water, antelope horn water, anti-accumulation stickers and other things.
But in fact, not only does the concept of “excessive internal heat” not exist in modern medicine, but also in the ancient books and records of traditional Chinese medicine. It is purely a folk common name.
Therefore, those so-called therapeutic drugs and their magical effects can only be ha ha…
Today, let’s not struggle with the authenticity of this concept. After all, the symptoms exist and the problem should be solved first.
From the orthodox human physiology analysis, in fact, there are many baby’s symptoms can find different causes, can find the causes are not afraid, can treat the cause. Never generalize, let alone treat the same.
Now, Ding Ma will show you what happened to the baby’s symptoms of excessive internal heat and how to deal with them.
Eye excrement is abundant
Babies sometimes have increased intraocular secretions, which are most obvious when they wake up and open their eyes.
When the situation is serious, secretions will even stick to the eyes, causing the baby to blink.
If this is the case, two reasons should generally be considered:
If you suffer from conjunctivitis, both babies and adults will suffer from eye excrement flooding, and at the same time, your eyes are usually white and red.
For the treatment of eye excrement increase caused by infectious conjunctivitis, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory treatment should be carried out under the guidance of doctors.
In order to prevent conjunctivitis, you should pay attention to cleaning your hands and your baby’s hands at ordinary times to prevent bacteria from entering your eyes from your hands. Your baby’s face towel should be washed and disinfected frequently.
2. Obstruction of lacrimal passage
For babies, more eye excrement may also be lacrimal passage obstruction, especially for babies three months ago.
At this time, tears cannot be discharged normally and remain in the lacrimal sac, which will cause bacteria to breed and develop into dacryocystitis, resulting in more eye excrement and even red and swollen eyelids.
If the diagnosis is lacrimal passage obstruction, the baby within 3 months can take conservative treatment first, massage the lacrimal sac area and/or antibiotic eye drops. Most lacrimal passage obstruction will gradually open as the baby grows up. After 3 months, there is still no improvement, so you need to see a doctor again to avoid serious complications.
Remember, don’t just [reduce fire] and delay the best treatment time.
When the baby is constipated, the stool is dry and hard, and the amount is small. The number of stool is less than usual and is granular. Moreover, the baby will cry every time he defecates.
It should be noted that the frequency of defecation is different for each baby, so constipation cannot be determined only by the frequency of defecation, but mainly by whether the stool is dry and hard and whether the baby is painful.
If the baby has constipation, unreasonable diet is a common cause.
The development of infants’ digestive system is not perfect. If dietary fiber and/or water intake is insufficient, intestinal peristalsis will be insufficient, and feces will stay in the intestinal tract for too long. Water will be reabsorbed, causing feces to dry up and difficult to discharge.
Baby crying is caused by pain caused by difficulty in defecation.
In terms of treatment, parents can solve the problem through diet and behavior adjustment.
For the baby who is fed artificially, it is necessary to avoid the formula milk being too thick, because the formula milk that is too thick will cause constipation of the baby, calcium or iron supplement is not correct, and defecation will also be difficult. You know, in general, the baby does not need to supplement extra calcium, only needs to supplement vitamin D routinely.
Children over half a year old can eat more foods containing dietary fiber such as fresh fruits and vegetables, feed more boiled water, eat less sweets and processed foods, and refuse fried foods.
If constipation symptoms still cannot be relieved, especially for babies within 4 months old, if parents try to treat them for 24 hours and have not defecated, they must find a doctor to solve them. After all, there are other reasons that may lead to constipation.
Do not give children drugs [moistening intestines] at will, let alone delay treatment as [excessive internal heat].
The urine color is yellow and the amount is small.
Babies sometimes have yellow urine color and less urine volume, but they cannot find other disease factors.
In fact, the most common reason is physiological yellow urine with small amount, which is due to high urine concentration, that is, insufficient water content in urine.
Therefore, as long as the water intake is increased.
1. Within 6 months of age
Before 6 months, no matter whether it is exclusively breast-fed, pure formula-fed or mixed-fed, there is usually no need to give extra water or fruit juice (unless there are medical indications). If the baby has yellow urine and less urine, don’t give the baby water directly, which can increase the amount of milk fed. (Don’t give the baby water directly, after all, the stomach is so big, which will affect the amount of milk he eats.)
Breastfeeding can be carried out directly. Most of the ingredients of breast milk are water. Drinking breast milk can help the baby replenish water. The ingredients of formula milk are made by imitating the ingredients of breast milk. As long as the formula milk is mixed strictly in proportion, its concentration is also close to that of breast milk. Adding formula milk to babies can also achieve the purpose of supplementing water.
2. After 6 months of age
You can start to consider feeding water in a cup, but not too much at first and don’t force your baby to drink it. If your baby refuses to drink water, you can also supplement water by increasing the amount of milk.
3. Babies who have added supplementary foods
It can also give babies vegetables and fruits with high water content, which can not only supply water but also supplement nutrition.
Ulcer of mouth and tongue
Occasionally, the baby will suffer from mouth ulcer, chapped mouth, blistering lips, and even oral mucosa and tongue ulcer.
In fact, a variety of diseases can cause oral diseases, such as hand-foot-mouth disease, herpes simplex, herpetic angina, thrush, etc. As long as the oral cavity is affected, the baby will show symptoms such as unwillingness to eat, crying, etc. Open the mouth and sometimes see herpes or ulcer.
The causes of these diseases are different, so the causes should be clearly defined first, and according to the causes, the baby should be given medication or nursing according to the guidance of doctors.
It should be noted that drugs may not be necessary for treatment, especially don’t always urge doctors or take antibiotics by themselves, such as herpetic angina. If it is relatively mild, just do a good job of nursing.
At ordinary times, pay attention to ensure the baby’s healthy diet, rest and living rules, pay attention to hygiene, timely vaccination, improve body immunity.
The baby’s nasal mucosa itself is very thin and the location of blood vessels is relatively shallow. When subjected to various stimuli, such as allergy, dry air and nose picking, small nasal blood vessels are prone to rupture and hemorrhage.
The reason is so clear, then deal with it according to the symptoms and don’t think about [getting rid of the fire].
For hemorrhage caused by dryness, attention should be paid to improving the humidity of the ambient air. Air humidifiers can be used or wet towels can be hung indoors. Wiping some moisturizing ointment into the nasal cavity of children can also moisten the nasal cavity and prevent hemorrhage.
If the child’s nose is allergic, he should pay attention to opening windows for ventilation, purify the air, and keep the child away from dust and dirty plush toys that may cause allergy.
If children like to pick their noses, they should try to find out the causes of picking their noses, such as colds and allergies, and then treat them symptomatically to eliminate the habitual picking of the causes. They can choose to use toys to divert their attention and guide them to get rid of this habit.
In short, the development of each system in the baby’s body is not perfect, It is more likely to cause various situations, but don’t blindly regard it as [excessive internal heat] to delay treatment, and don’t blindly use drugs, especially traditional Chinese medicines and proprietary Chinese medicines with unclear side effects. Many of these drugs have not undergone formal tests to determine the possible dangers. Don’t treat your baby as a mouse.
