In autumn, children's cough should be raised
As the saying goes, "three points of treatment, seven points of nourishment". If you want to cure children's cough, you must pay attention to "nourishment". In fact, the treatment of cough not only depends on drugs, more attention to some nursing details in daily life may be more helpful to the treatment of children's cough. Here are some suggestions:
1. Keep the room fresh
Dirty air will cause adverse irritation to respiratory mucosa, which may cause congestion, edema, abnormal secretion or aggravation of cough in respiratory mucosa, and severe may cause panting symptoms. Therefore, in order to keep the indoor air fresh, the kitchen fumes should be discharged, and parents should not smoke at home. They should open the window regularly for ventilation.
2. Humidifying the living room
The room maintains the appropriate humidity environment to be too dry, the air humidity drops, the mucous membrane becomes dry and brittle, the small blood vessels may rupture and bleed, the cilia movement is limited, and the sputum is not easy to cough up. When the respiratory organ has inflammation, the effect is more obvious. It is not difficult to keep a certain humidity in the room. When the climate is dry, you can often use a wet mop to mop the ground, or sprinkle some water on the ground.
3. Pay attention to reasonable diet
As the saying goes, 'fish makes fire, meat makes phlegm, vegetables and tofu keep peace'. According to traditional Chinese medicine, fish, crab, shrimp, fat and other meaty and greasy food may help dampness to produce phlegm, and some may cause allergic reactions and aggravate the disease. Peppers, peppers, ginger and other pungent products can stimulate the respiratory tract and aggravate the cough, which should be avoided. Fresh vegetables, such as vegetables, carrots, tomatoes, etc., can provide a variety of vitamins and inorganic salts, which is conducive to the recovery of the body's metabolic function.
Baby drink more water, enough water can make nasal secretions thinner, easy to clean. Let baby eat more vitamin C rich fruit and juice. It is said that chicken soup can alleviate the symptoms of cold. You may as well boil some chicken soup to let your baby drink some. Try to eat less dairy products, which can increase the secretion of mucus.
4. Keep enough sleep
When sleep is sufficient, the whole body muscle relaxes, the response to external stimulation is reduced, and the activities such as heartbeat, respiration and excretion are reduced, which is conducive to the recovery of various organ functions and diseases. We should try our best to let children rest in bed, to ensure that children have enough sleep, so as to facilitate the recovery of the body.
