Allergic rhinitis in children

Seasonal allergy (hay fever)
You may know some people with hay fever. When pollen blows in the wind, these people begin to sneeze and itch in their noses as well as runny. The tree pollen is the usual reason for this condition in the spring, while the ragweed is the reason in the autumn (the flowers rarely cause hay fever because of the large size of their pollen, where they cannot fly over distances; rather they move from a place To a place by insects and other beings).
Hay fever usually affects children after they are three or four years old, and it is often a hereditary condition within the family. Also, it is likely that the tears of the eyes and the feeling of itching in them constantly are symptoms of allergies, and the doctor can make sure to diagnose allergies based on symptoms and physical examination and his knowledge of the nature of the most common and widespread pollen in your area at different times of the year.

Head lice in children


Head lice are not, of course, inflammation, they are just a parasitic infection. It is striking that lice do not enter the body but establish a home for it and feed on human blood. The real problem is the itching, which may worsen, which is also the disgusting factor in this topic.

The head bugs easily move from one person to another, either by direct contact with the head (such as tilting the head over the other) or by using combs, brushes, or other people's hats. Moreover, insects of the head can live for about three days outside the human body, and their eggs live longer. It is worth noting that lack of attention to personal hygiene does not cause this problem.

Lice hide well, so you have to do my lady's search for eggs (which is also known as nits); it is a tiny granule, white as pearls and smaller than sesame seeds. The eggs stick to the hair and are close to the scalp often. In addition, red, inflamed blisters may appear at the place where the hair meets the back of the neck, especially behind the ear.

You can try anti-head lice treatments that are sold in pharmacies without a prescription from the doctor, but do not be surprised if the lice remain alive, because its resistance to this type of chemical has become common, and there are medical insecticides usually useful in this case such as: malathion. In addition, there are some treatments that are not useful, such as: covering the head with petroleum jelly or mayonnaise. There is also a sure treatment for head lice disease, which is to pick up nits one by one from your child's head, then examine his head every few days to check for new nits. You can also moisturize your child's hair with water and use a rinse cream to make it easier to comb, and then it is difficult for lice to escape away.
