Try Terraflu. It's great. And lie, and do not run around the streets or housekeeping
The folk wisdom says: "A treated cold is a week, not treated - seven days". And when you run a cold, you quickly drink two "Fervex" sachets at once, chew aspirin in the form of prophylaxis and you do not drink an ice cold mineral water all day long. Offended by inattention, the cold slightly recedes and begins to peck you in a long-playing way. The result: a loud sniffing of his nose and an irritating cough within a month.

Meanwhile, prudently combining grandmother's recipes and achievements of science, you can even with some pleasure recover for three days and with a sense of the winner to return to work.
So, we solve problems as they occur.
Saddling pain in the throat. The cold begins.
Do not smoke. At least the first day. Cigarette smoke reduces the activity of respiratory cilia, helping to eliminate microbes. A teaspoon of a glass of warm water or a spoonful of salt and soda and a couple of drops of iodine - the throat is not less than three times a day, and better - every hour. Drink tea with licorice root. Eat honey: out of twenty-four micronutrients required by our body in its composition - twenty-two. If tea with herbs did not help - eat "Tharyngept" or "Falimint".
An exhausting cough. Cursed mines!
Mustards. I would very much like to encourage you with a message like: "Modern mustard plasters are made of soft polymeric material and do not bring any unpleasant sensations ...". Alas, and ah. They still bite and burn, but you will not cough all night long. Less radical means - a teaspoon of honey + a teaspoon of butter. Forget about the banks! As research has shown, after their application bruises remain not only on the back, but also on the shell of the lungs - the pleura. This additional trauma only contributes to the spread of infection.
Stuffy nose.
When fighting with a cold, two or three drops of beet, onion juice or aloe juice are effective enough. If there is nothing like that at hand, get out of the medicine cabinet "Tizin" or "Galazolin". Try to breathe a potato steam - according to many doctors, this is the best version of inhalation.
Pseudo weakness in the whole body.
In the first two days, this problem can not be solved radically. But if those days, while you feel like a boiled washcloth, will replenish the stocks of vitamin C (citrus fruits, cranberry, apples) - the body will be immensely grateful to you and on the third day you will wake up cheerfully.
By way of general information:
As soon as you feel the approach of cold, squeeze out the juice from two lemons, mix it with honey and drink in a gulp. The horse dose of vitamin C is more than ever needed for your pushed body. If you are at home all day and you do not have to communicate - add to the mixture finely chopped onions.
With a cold, we constantly breathe through the mouth, and the dried mucous membrane is an excellent environment for the reproduction of bacteria. Therefore, in order to conquer the cold, drink a lot of liquid - up to six or eight glasses a day. Best of all - hot tea with lemon, honey, cranberries or raspberries. Medic


I was sick and cured in just three days!
So this:
1) immunal drink (three times a day)
2) Ascorutin (not harmful at all)
3) Hot milk with honey for the night

Svetlana Raspopova

Quickly you can remove the symptoms, and the disease itself will go according to schedule!
Be wary of consequences - do not relax ahead of time.


In an amicable way, after 3 days after the onset of the disease, there should be an improvement-the temperature should drop, and you yourself should feel better (if it's just an ARVI). If the temperature is still high on day 4, then you already have to think about complications, and if before that you have delayed contacting the doctor, then in this case you can not do without it.

How can I quickly get rid of ARVI?

Colds cause many people to seek medical help, especially during epidemics. During the year, about 50 million cases of infectious diseases are diagnosed in our country, of which 90% are acute respiratory viral infections (ARVI) and influenza. These diseases are often accompanied by the development of complications. The costs of society for their prevention and treatment, the losses from disability of the population are very high. Therefore, the urgency of information on how to quickly cure an acute infectious disease at home is beyond doubt.

Mode and power

A patient with ARVI needs bed rest for the entire fever period. Until full recovery, the patient should be at home. At normal body temperature, a doctor is allowed to visit the polyclinic.

The room in which the patient is located should be ventilated frequently. Daily wet cleaning with antiseptic agents is necessary. It is recommended to limit the contact of healthy family members with the patient, allocate him a separate dish and a towel.

The food should be high-grade, with the big maintenance of vegetables, fish, sour-milk products, vitamins. Useful abundant drink - compote of dried fruits, dog rose, green tea. You should give up strong tea and coffee, sweets, fatty foods, alcohol.

Vitamins A, E, B are important. It is best to buy ready-made multivitamin complexes in the pharmacy. During the recovery period after ARI, it is possible to take plant adaptogens - rhodiola rosea, ginseng.

Non-drug treatment

If the disease is mild, without severe fever and intoxication, you can get by with folk remedies, especially in a child. Useful steam inhalation with soda solution, grinding of the chest with badger fat, vegetable ointments, balm "Golden Star". It will help to quickly remove symptoms of acute respiratory distress syndrome acupressure of the face and hands.

It is recommended to hold warm gargles with infusion of mother-and-stepmother, chamomile, calendula, sage and eucalyptus. These plants have anti-inflammatory and immunostimulating effect. It shows aromatherapy using essential oils of pine, eucalyptus, cedar.

At normal body temperature, thermal procedures are effective: hot foot baths with mustard, warm milk with honey, dry heat on the waist. For a child, you can use socks filled with mustard powder - let it be like them in the evening before going to bed. They will help to improve well-being and mustard plasters on the interscapular area. Do not wrap a scarf around your throat.

If the disease is accompanied by a fever, a runny nose, severe nasal congestion, headache and muscle pain, weakness - one can not do without the medical treatment of ARVI.

Etiotropic therapy

Ideally, ARVI treatment should be etiotropic, that is, be aimed at the very cause of the disease - the virus. However, this therapy is designed only for influenza. For its treatment, two main groups are used:

  • blockers of M2-channels (remantadine, amantadine);
  • inhibitors of neuraminidase (zanamivir, oseltamivir).

These drugs quite quickly eliminate all the symptoms of the flu. Their disadvantage is the rapid development of the resistance of the virus and a decrease in their effectiveness after a few days of admission. In addition, these drugs are badly tolerated, causing nausea, dizziness, insomnia, lack of appetite. In ARVI caused by other pathogens, these drugs are ineffective.

In modern conditions, increasing importance is placed on vaccine prophylaxis - the introduction into the body of a healthy person inactivated vaccine. The complexity of vaccine prevention lies in the fact that it is not always possible to correctly identify the type of influenza virus that will become the source of the epidemic in the current year.

Even etiotropic treatment and vaccine prophylaxis may not protect a person from a flu. With ARVI these methods are not applied at all. Therefore, the basis for treatment of acute respiratory infections in the home is symptomatic therapy.

Symptomatic therapy

Treatment with symptomatic remedies at home helps quickly eliminate the symptoms of the disease and prevent the development of complications. The main signs of acute respiratory viral infection are cough, runny nose and fever. For their treatment, drugs from different pharmacological groups are needed:

  • drugs that suppress inflammation;
  • remedies that reduce mucosal edema;
  • components from cough;
  • substances that suppress damage to membranes by free radicals;
  • vitamins;
  • antihistamines.

Usually, all of them are present in one combination or another as a combination of cold remedies. Such complex means modern medicine recommends in order to quickly recover from ARVI at home.

Advantages of combined remedies against ARVI:

  • act on all links of the disease;
  • contain a balanced dose of drugs, which reduces the risk of overdose;
  • components have unidirectional (synergistic) action;
  • combined preparations are cheaper than their components separately;
  • convenience of use, including for the child.

One of the main components of complex agents from ARVI is paracetamol. This is one of the safest antipyretics. Phenylephrine, which is a decongestant, effectively removes nasal congestion, eliminates the common cold. Of the antihistamines, the most common is phenyramine. This drug dries the mucous membrane, eliminates itching and swelling of the eyes and nose.

To increase efficiency, reduce feelings of weakness, many combined drugs include caffeine. It suppresses the feeling of drowsiness that antihistamines can cause. An important component of such drugs is vitamin C. It reduces vascular permeability, strengthens cells, increases the body's defenses. A lot of complex preparations with different effect have been developed, allowing each patient to choose the remedy that best suits him.

One of the effective combined funds in the Russian market is Lemsip. It contains paracetamol and phenylephrine in a balanced combination that allows you to quickly remove all the symptoms of a cold. This drug takes a leading position in the fight against the symptoms of ARVI in the UK. The drug is available in powder form with a pleasant aroma, it starts to act after 15 minutes. The action time reaches 6 hours. The medicine does not cause drowsiness.

Of the multicomponent drugs in the form of tablets, it is worth noting the "Rince" remedy. It is prescribed for children over 15 years and adults. The optimal composition of the drug helps to quickly get rid of pain, cold and fever.

Features of ARVI treatment in young children

Children under 3 months should be monitored for drinking. The amount of water needed per day is 120-150 ml per kg of child weight. Lack of fluid is the main danger of an infectious disease for a child's body.

If the baby's skin is pink, it is necessary to undress it, apply cold to the area of ​​large vessels (groin, armpits) and rub it with water at room temperature. Do not use vodka, vinegar or cold water for this. This can cause spasm of small vessels and completely "unbalance" thermoregulation. In some cases, a common bath with a water temperature two degrees below the child's body temperature helps to reduce fever.

Lower body temperature is necessary if it exceeds 38 ° C in children with heart, lung, nervous system or in children under 3 months of age. In other cases, the boundary of the "knocked-in" temperature is 38.5 ° C. Reduce it should be gradual, best at 1-, ° C. To this end, you can use only two drugs - paracetamol and ibuprofen.

With thick mucus in the nasal cavity of the child, it is necessary to wash the spout with physiological saline. You can use an aspirator. If the baby's nose breathes freely, it is not necessary to wash it.

It is possible to use decongestants in special "children's" doses in a short course. With pain in the throat in children, it is better not to rinse, but to drink warm milk with honey, Borjomi mineral water, soda.

Cough should be treated with respiratory gymnastics, postural drainage, chest massage, abundant drinking. The doctor can prescribe a means that dilutes sputum, inside or inhalation. Self-medication with these drugs is dangerous.

In the treatment of a child, unjustified administration of immunostimulating, antiviral and antibacterial drugs should be avoided.

Treatment of ARVI in a child

Treatment of ARVI in a childEach parent, at least once in his life, experienced symptoms of ARVI in a child, most often the children of the first 3 years of life are ill and children 7-10 years old.

ARVI in children are acute respiratory viral infections that unite a large group of viral infectious diseases caused by DNA - and RNA - containing viruses. Unlike influenza, these microorganisms do not have such high contagiousness, do not cause epidemics and are more easily tolerated by patients.

Causes and pathogenesis of the disease

ARVI in children is caused by viruses of influenza A, B and C, parainfluenza, adenoviruses, rhinoviruses, reoviruses and other microorganisms. The source of infection becomes a sick person or bacterium carrier, when talking, coughing, sneezing viruses fall on the mucous membrane of the upper respiratory tract of a healthy person and are introduced into it.

The further development of the disease, how hard it will go on and how many days will last, depends on the state of immunity infected, the general resistance of the body and on how much infectious agents enter the body.

Viruses quite easily and quickly die in the external environment,so the infection occurs when you are in close contact with the virus carrier or when using common household items(dishes, towels, personal hygiene items).

For SARS and influenza, the seasonality of the disease is typical - most cases of illness in children and adults are noted in the spring - Autumn period and in the cold season, when the human body is weakened and can not fight infections.

In children, viral infections occur almost at any age, but up to 6 months in infants, temporary immunity from the mother remains, and therefore children of this age rarely have ARI. The cause of acute respiratory viral infections and influenza in children up to a year are mostly older children and adults, who "bring" viruses and infect infants.

The peak incidence of various colds falls on the age of 3-4 years, when most babies begin to visit various children's institutions. Boredom, the lack of children's concepts of basic hygiene (sneezing with an open mouth, the use of someone else's dishes and personal hygiene items, not the ability to thoroughly wash their hands before eating, after walking and visiting the toilet), not fully formed immunity of the child, all this causes a large number of diseases in preschool children.

Symptoms of viral infections in children

Signs and symptoms of ARVI in a childARVI in children begins with an increase in body temperature, general malaise, decreased appetite, then there are other signs viral infection: nasal congestion and abundant mucous discharge, pain and sore throat, coughing, rapid breathing. Depending on the type of pathogen, the symptoms of the disease may vary slightly.

1. Influenza - high body temperature - up to 39-40 degrees, muscle pain, weakness, headache, nasal congestion and sore throat are all symptoms of flu and parainfluenza. The disease can last from 4 to 5 to 10-14 days and how long the acute period of the disease will be depends largely on how quickly and timely the treatment is started. The body temperature during the flu lasts for several days, reaches high figures and can cause frustration, delirium and cramps, especially in young children.

Unlike other SARS, influenza and parainfluenza can lead to serious complications from internal organs, so the child must be under the supervision of a doctor and receive appropriate treatment. Parainfluenza causes severe swelling of the mucous membrane of the larynx and nasal passages, which can provoke the development of a false croup (asthma attacks) in a child of the first years of life.

2. Reo - and rhinovirus infections occur with a slight increase in body temperature, coughing and nasal congestion, the main symptoms of infection are a profuse serous detached from the nose, the patient can not breathe normally, it "flows" from the nose, reddened mucous membranes of the eyes, can also hurt the throat and torment cough. Usually the general condition of the child does not suffer too much and the symptoms of the disease quickly pass.

4. Adenoviral infection - here to all the above listed symptoms of ARVI, conjunctivitis and elevated body temperature, which lasts long enough on subfebrile digits, join. Adenoviruses have tropism to the lymphatic tissue and often cause an increase in the lymph nodes, spleen or lymphadenitis in children. The state of the lymphatic system will determine how long the disease will last and whether it will cause complications.

5. RS - infection - respiratory syncytial virus affects the bronchial mucosa and provokes the development of bronchitis, pneumonia and bronchial asthma in children. The main symptoms of this infection are a dry, painful cough that appears immediately after infection and is rapidly developing, as well as other signs - shortness of breath, quickening of breathing, fever and sore throat.

Principles of ARVI treatment

Principles of ARVI treatment in a childTreatment of acute respiratory viral infections in children is usually performed at home, it is necessary to treat a child in a hospital with complications, severe form of the disease, children with concomitant diseases or infants up to 1 year old with moderate and severe form.

Even if the child has many times had similar signs of infection, it is necessary to call a doctor and conduct treatment under his supervision, as only an experienced specialist will be able to accurately assess the patient's condition and in time to see the risk of developing various complications.

Calling up SARS in children can have about 200 different viruses, and many of them mutate yearly, so specific treatments, as well as disease prevention, have not yet been developed. To treat a child with ARVI is offered by symptomatic means and antiviral drugs. The most reliable way to avoid frequent ARVI in childhood and quickly recover from any infection is prevention viral infections: hardening, vitamin therapy, outdoor exercise and exercise.

To quickly cure a child, you must follow the following rules:

1. Observe the bed rest until the body temperature drops to normal, and then, for several more days, protect the child from any load, so as not to provoke the development of complications, since the patient's body is greatly weakened.

2. The diet of a sick child should be light and nutritious - more vegetables, fruits, dairy products. Be sure to follow the drinking regimen - a day the child should drink at least 1.5 - 3 liters of fluid, depending on the age. If the baby is on breastfeeding, it is necessary to monitor its condition - dry lips, hot dry skin, rapid breathing - these are all signs dehydration, when they appear, you need to start dopayivat the child with warm boiled water at a rate of approximately 10 ml per kg of body weight, every 2-3 hours. Children older than a year can be offered juices, compotes, fruit drinks, tea with honey and raspberries or mineral alkaline water without gas.

3. If the body temperature exceeded 38.5 g, the child is given antipyretic - Panadol, children's paracetamol, ibuprofen and other similar preparations, children up to one year can put a rectal candle with febrifuge.

4. With pain in the throat, one should immediately start rinsing with antiseptic solutions. The more gargle of the patient is rinsed, the more effectively microorganisms and the products of their vital activity are washed out of the oropharynx. Optimum gargle every 2-4 hours with soda-salt solutions, chamomile, sage broth, ready-made pharmacy solutions or solutions of furacilin, iodine, hydrogen peroxide.

5. If the cough persists for several days, it is advisable to start taking expectorant and thinning medications - bromhexine, licorice root syrup, Muciltin, amber, and others.

6. From the first days of the disease, a viral infection should begin taking antiviral drugs - interferon, anaferon, viferon. Children up to a year, these drugs are prescribed in the form of candles.

7. If the symptoms do not go away in a few days and the body temperature keeps on high figures - this may indicate about joining bacterial infection and about the need to start antibiotic treatment, which can only be prescribed by a doctor.

Prevention of ARVI

Specific prophylaxis of acute respiratory viral infections in children is still not developed and, in order to avoid infection and quickly get rid of the clinical manifestations infection, it is necessary to observe the rules of personal hygiene, to avoid accumulation of people, hypothermia and to increase the body's defenses. The best prevention of any infections in children is good immunity, and for this it is necessary to carry out the tempering of the child, to monitor his health and proper nutrition.

How to cure a child for colds / ARI / ARVI

How to cure a child for colds / ARI / ARVI

A cold is usually called a whole range of different diseases, usually of a viral origin. They are sometimes provoked by hypothermia, but even more often viruses "attack" weakened children's organisms. It is those who are accustomed to effeminacy, the "overwhelmed" kids suffer from "colds" often.

ARVI and other colds

Angina, bronchitis, rhinitis and other diseases, which are catalyzed by mild cold, are quite common in children of different ages. But the most frequent manifestations of acute respiratory viral infection are acute respiratory infections. This is also a generalized term, for acute respiratory infections or otherwise acute respiratory diseases imply a group of dysfunctions of the nasopharynx and upper respiratory tract. They are manifested by inflammatory processes, externally expressed in pains, choking in the throat, sneezing and coughing, runny nose, weakness, a slight increase in temperature.

There are a lot of causative agents of catarrhal diseases, about 200 viruses. About 30% of diseases develop under the influence of rhinoviruses. Most often, infection occurs with direct contact with children who are already ill and adults: in kindergarten, school, at home, in public places. The virus can be transmitted by airborne and by contact.

Who is sick more often?

It is noticed that the youngest children, up to 5-7 years old, are often susceptible to viral infections. They just have weak protective forces of the body. Additional points that increase the likelihood of the disease are lack of vitamins, fatigue, other recently transferred diseases, weakened the body, hypothermia. Often sick sedentary children, prone to overeating.

Based on these risk factors, it is easy to build a tactic to strengthen immunity, which will become the prevention of diseases of this series. It is a balanced diet rich in vitamins and trace elements, with a sufficient protein content. Do not forget that sour-milk products, which children often love, also have a beneficial effect on the microflora of the intestine, and she, in turn, is actively involved in protecting the body from viruses and toxins. It is necessary to ventilate the room, go for walks, engage in mobile games with children: this will make the kids more protected from viruses and bacteria, and the relationship within the family will strengthen.

If the child is ill after all

But not always preventive measures help. The child becomes capricious, shows obvious signs of malaise. If the temperature is not higher than 38 °, do not knock it down, because the temperature rise is one of the ways to fight the infection, so the body copes with the disease more quickly. But if it is even higher, it is too much workload, even convulsions may occur. Lowering the temperature of the baby is most easily wiped: wet the napkin with water, you can add a little vinegar (1/20 of the volume of water).

The main thing: to provide the child with peace, abundant drink, rich in vitamins nutrition. Gargling, nasal instillation is a symptomatic treatment, the other is often not required.

But if the disease develops too sharply, you can also apply medication: Interferon, Viferon, Grippferon, Arbidol and other medications. But only on the advice of a doctor and accurately keeping the dosage. In no case should one cling to these or other medications by themselves, they may have contraindications, and even with dosage parents can not guess, and this leads to dangerous complications.

Tip 1: How to treat a viral infection in a child

How to treat a viral infection in a child

The disease with a viral infection usually begins sharply. The temperature rises, a runny nose, a sore throat, coughing, lacrimation. The child can complain of a headache, weakness. Take action in the first hours of the disease. Be sure to call a doctor and try to relieve the condition of the baby.

You will need

  1. - antiviral agents;
  2. antipyretic agents;
  3. - plentiful drink;
  4. - feeding at will;
  5. - wiping with water;
  6. - washing of the nose;
  7. - gargling;
  8. - Low temperature and high humidity.


  1. Before the acute stage of the disease, when the immunity begins to react to the appearance of pests in the body, there is a phase when the immune system has not yet responded, and the viruses have already penetrated the body. During this period, the child may feel malaise, weakness, there is redness and shine in the eyes. Babies can sleep unusually long or, conversely, can not fall asleep. During this period, effective antiviral drugs will be effective - homeopathic remedies (Viburkol, Acilcoccinum, Aflubin), chemical antiviral agents (Arbidol, Tamiflu), interferons (Viferon, Grippferon). It is in this pre-acute period of the disease that these drugs can block the action of viruses and prevent the development of the disease.
  2. If the disease continues to progress and the child has a fever, chills, a runny nose, a sore throat, then try to put the baby in bed. Dress the baby warmer, and lower the air temperature in the room to 18 degrees. The air in the room must be moistened so that the mucus (runny nose and phlegm) secreted by the body to fight the spread of the virus does not dry up and perform its protective function.
  3. Give the child a copious drink. The temperature of the drink should be the same as the body temperature, so the liquid will be absorbed faster by the walls of the stomach. If the baby does not have allergies, add honey to the drink. Morse from cranberry, lingonberry, tea from a camomile and a linden are very useful. Offer the child a fruit compote on the broth of the dog rose.
  4. If the child has a high fever (more than 38.5 -39 degrees), give him a child antipyretic agent based on paracetamol or ibuprofen. Do not rub the baby with vodka or vinegar. Rubbing can be done only with water at room temperature, in the event that the child is not shivering.
  5. To dilute the mucus in the nose and facilitate breathing, flush the baby's nose with saline or seawater. With severe nasal congestion, it is possible to use special children's drops depending on the age. Do not abuse vasoconstrictor drugs, they are addictive and dry the nasal mucosa.
  6. With a sore throat, prepare the baby a rinse solution. Very useful herbal infusions of sage, calendula, chamomile. Rinse throat should be done before meals.
  7. Do not force the child to eat if he does not have an appetite. Food should be easy, avoid fried and spicy dishes. The volume of one-time consumption of food should be reduced, and the number of feedings should be increased.
  8. Try to create a comfortable environment for a child, calm him if he is scared or hurt. Your care and proper care will help to quickly cope with the infection.

Residual cough in the child

Why does the child have a residual cough?

Residual cough in the childResidual cough is observed in the child after the transferred bronchitis, inflammation of the lungs and tracheitis. It is observed after all the symptoms have gone away, the temperature has normalized, all the main signs of the transferred disease have passed. In this case, the child periodically coughs without spitting out phlegm. Such manifestations are called residual cough.

Appear residual cough can up to two weeks. In this case, the child's immunity becomes decisive. In the event that the SARS is observed in the child for the sixth time in a year, the residual cough can be observed for up to three weeks.

Causes residual cough causing infectious disease. There is a lesion of the mucosal virus of the bronchi and trachea, and it does not recover too quickly. For its full restoration must take a certain time. This is what makes up the period of observation of the residual cough.

Residual cough after bronchitis in a child

Residual cough after bronchitis gives the child a lot of trouble and requires appropriate treatment. Despite the fact that there is no immediate danger of coughing after bronchitis, there are two circumstances that make him take it seriously.

First of all, it is often confused with the symptoms of bronchitis itself or its complications. In this case, the duration of the cough and the nature of its course are important. After bronchitis, it makes sense to periodically show the child to the doctor. In the event that the child coughs for more than three weeks, with a cough dry, occurs with attacks, the probability of whooping cough should be excluded.

The duration of cough after bronchitis indicates that there are malfunctions in the immune system. The pathogenic microbes that cause disease are well deposited on the irritated bronchi of a child. He could again pick up the infection if it is present in his team, whether it's a kindergarten group or a class. It is better to keep the child at home until the cough is completely eliminated from him.

Residual cough in a child after ARVI

Cough can be a residual phenomenon after an ARVI, transferred by the child. It is observed because there is a violation of the normal functioning of the respiratory system of the child and sputum is formed in its bronchi as mucus. It is the presence of residual cough after ARI is a guarantee of protection of bronchi and trachea from sputum.

Residual cough after respiratory infection can be both dry and with phlegm. Thus the allocated sputum is thick and viscous, with impurities of mucus.

Cough in a child can manifest in different ways. Coughing can be both inconspicuous, and pass into a strong, persistent cough. In the latter case, the child may have a fever and feel worse. Residual cough after acute respiratory viral infection is most often manifested in preschool children.

Residual cough in a child after tracheitis

The main symptoms of tracheitis in a child are fatigue, weakness, fever. With their external absence, the child may have a cough, which is one of the residual symptoms of the disease. Almost every second case is similar. Residual cough in a child after tracheitis is manifested due to weakened immunity or individual characteristics of the child's body. Getting on the mucous membranes of the trachea and bronchi, the virus begins to multiply actively. Residual cough does not need any additional treatment, however time for recovery is necessary.

How long does the residual cough in a child last?

Residual cough after the transferred diseases in the child is among the normal phenomena. Approximately in half of the reported cases, it lasts up to a month and longer. Everything depends on the state of the child's organism and the disease that he suffered. If it is observed after bronchitis, special attention should be paid to the nature of the discharge during coughing. They should be light, the body temperature should not grow and in general, the cough itself should tend to decrease.

Children in preschool age themselves can not monitor the frequency of sputum and spit it normally. In addition, they need more time to restore the bronchial mucosa. If you do not resort to additional methods of treatment, sputum disappears in about a month.

For children of primary school age, less time is needed to eliminate the symptoms of residual cough. If you do not apply any additional cure they cure within ten days on average. Treatment can shorten this time by half.

Residual cough in a child, how to treat?

For the treatment of residual cough, a child needs a series of preventive procedures to facilitate the process of treatment. Often this is enough to stop the remaining cough, especially if it is observed after bronchitis. Preventive measures include airing the room in which the child lives, preventing exposure to acute allergens, fencing the child from smoking in his presence, maintaining the temperature in the child's living quarters at a certain level, without changes.

In residential areas, wet cleaning is required to be carried out regularly and the general condition of the microclimate should be monitored. It is recommended to use an air humidifier, the principle of which is based on the use of ultrasound. This is more effective than hanging wet towels in the room and installing water tanks on the floor. The air humidifier is able not only to keep the air humidity index at a given level, but also to clean it from harmful impurities.

How to cure a residual dry cough in a child

Dry cough is one of the varieties of residual cough that occurs in a child after suffering various illnesses. Like any kind of cough, it requires the application of a certain method of treatment.
