Allergic conjunctivitis in a child: symptoms and treatment

I jokingly compare allergies to a caring grandmother. She is afraid that the child will get sick and begins to “wrap” him in 100 clothes. But what it leads to is not hard to guess. She wants the best, but in the end, the child has diaper rash and he overheats. Similarly occurs with the body with allergies. When the immune system detects an irritant and considers it dangerous, it “turns on” the protective reaction. But this reaction is inflammatory. If the immune system suffers from hyperprotection, just like a grandmother, then the protective functions are activated even when meeting with pollen. Of course, the body does this well-intentioned, but this is not easier.

Problems with the stool of the newborn. How does the baby’s intestines function?

Newborn stool is the most talked about topic among young parents. If it is not difficult for us to understand our “deeds”, then with children everything is different. Moms look at the diaper and don’t understand: “is it normal or is it time to call an ambulance?” Parents of the baby need to understand what is happening with the intestines of the child and how to react to it correctly. What is the difference between the intestines of a newborn and an adult? Which stool is considered normal, and for what symptoms should I see a doctor?

Do you know what the main role is in the intestines? Many will say that digestive. But this is both true and false at the same time. Having worked as a neonatologist and resuscitator, I came to the conclusion that the main function of the intestine is immune. The motor and brain of immunity are the intestines. Continue reading

Lactose: intolerance symptoms and diet. Refusal of “milk” – not a cure

The first symptoms of lactose intolerance can occur even in infancy. Some babies cannot process milk properly. Hence the problems: poor weight gain, changes in the regularity and quality of the stool, as well as colic and cramping. Others notice symptoms of lactose intolerance already in adulthood. It is believed that this happens when several factors are affected. With this diagnosis, people still need to consume dairy products. In this case, lactose-free products are ideal.

Lactose is essentially milk sugar. It is considered a carbohydrate of the disaccharide group, consists of residues of glucose and galactose molecules. Lactose is found mainly in dairy products, but can also be in drugs, as a filler. Milk sugar is part of some confectionery. As part of the sweets you can see “artificial sweeteners”, it is possible that it will be lactose. Pay attention to the instructions in small print. Baby formula contains approximately 85% of this element. From lactose, drugs are made to treat intestinal disorders: from constipation to dysbiosis. Continue reading
