How to treat diathesis in children?
Children bring laughter and joy to our home, but at the same time they bring a whole bag of sometimes unpleasant troubles. Almost every parent of children under the age of three, or even older, faced such a problem as diathesis, that is, the inability of the growing organism to perceive a particular food.
What does a child's diathesis look like? This disease manifests itself as red spots most often on the face, but they can be found all over the body, which looks completely unattractive.
foods causing diathesis in children
What kind of food can cause child allergies in a child?
It is worth noting that the list of harmful products for each baby is different, however, there are several positions that occur most often in it:
- sweets and drinks with a high content of colors.
Unfortunately, the list is endless.
How to determine if a baby is allergic to a particular product? No way, just trial and error. This is the main problem of this disease.
what does Diathesis look like in infants?
Most often, diathesis is manifested in infants. How is it, many will ask, because such crumbs do not eat anything except mother's milk? But their mothers eat them, and what enters their stomachs sooner or later passes to the child through the same mother's milk and is displayed on the cheeks.
It is for this reason that doctors attribute a strict diet to newly-minted mothers in the maternity hospital. By the way, the purpose of following this diet is not only such an allergy, but also the normal functioning of the baby's intestines with minimal formation of gas.
This menu is quite strict, it is easier to list what you can eat than what you can't. With each month the baby grows, the number of various dishes on the mother's table also grows. But it is necessary to introduce a new product according to the rules. First, the mother eats a piece of, say, a peach or the same tomato. If in a day the baby does not show any reaction, then this product can be eaten, only in moderation. This should be done with every new new product.
diathesis of a child on the cheeks with self-feeding
As soon as the baby starts to eat adult food, it is necessary to carefully add new products to his menu.
This should be done also gradually, as in the previous case. Some products are generally not recommended for babies under three or even seven years old. For example, chocolate, honey, citrus fruits, sodas, sweets with obvious colors, and so on.
If your baby has red cheeks or a rash on the body, see a doctor.
These can be symptoms of not only atopic dermatitis, but also other more serious diseases. Only a doctor can correctly determine what the diathesis looks like in a child on the face and not only.
treatment of atopic dermatitis in children
Diathesis or atopic dermatitis is not a disease as such. This is an allergenic reaction of the child's not quite formed intestines, its inability to pass unnecessary substances through its walls, as well as insufficient production of antibodies. As a rule, babies suffering from diathesis have a reduced immune resistance.
However, you should not panic, after 3-4 years, the baby's body will mature , and the baby will be able to eat everything that his healthy peers eat. You just need to let the gastrointestinal tract tune in to full work. This is how atopic diathesis looks like in a baby.
This is what the pediatrician will say to parents whose baby will have atopic dermatitis. It is impossible to cure the diathesis if the pathogen product is not removed from the child's or mother's menu, which can be quite difficult to do if the correct diet has not been observed. We'll have to first abandon all suspicious foods and reintroduce them one by one into the diet.
To prevent the baby's cheeks from causing discomfort with their inflammation, the pediatrician will prescribe ointments appropriate for the baby's age.
However, without removing the cause of the diathesis, the consequences of pathology, even with the help of a miracle cream, will not disappear.
Diathesis in a child is a very common disease, so you should not be afraid when it manifests itself, but you should still see your doctor for an appointment.
