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.

Intestinal parasites Infection with worms

Most children around the world develop intestinal parasites, and the better the overall health, the fewer worms and symptoms appear only as abdominal pain.

Excluding pinworms and tapeworms, they are ubiquitous. As for worms that affect an adult, they resemble white streaks and a length of three inches. This type of worm lives in the intestine, while it goes out to lay eggs at night around the anus. These eggs may cause the child to feel annoying itching during sleep and may lead to irritation of the vagina (If the patient is a female), the affected child may not feel it forever. (Initially, it was believed that worms were the main reason why children crushed their teeth at night, but it is not.)

In addition, pinworms are not dangerous but they may cause infections that are difficult to get rid of. It should be noted that a single dose of the drug is enough to kill large worms, but their eggs may remain for days or weeks outside the body. Unknowingly, the child may pick up the eggs of the worms with his fingers and then put them back in his or her parents' mouth. Pinworms are common in child and family care centers, and the child often gets worms several times. To break this cycle, it is necessary to wash hands with extreme care (especially under the nails), wash clothes, sheets, covers, and the floor of the home and apply frequent treatment sessions sometimes.

In fact, roundworms are very similar to earthworms, and we first suspect that a child will be infected when one of them is detected in feces. This type of worm does not cause any symptoms unless there are a large number of them in the child's abdomen. On the other hand, hookworms spread in some regions in the southern United States. These worms may cause the child to have anemia and malnutrition, and this infection is transmitted to the child while walking barefoot with contaminated soil.

In fact, children who have grown up in less developed countries or who have lived in collective homes or homeless shelters may develop intestinal obstruction without any symptoms. It is worth noting that discovering the problem is a simple matter, as a sample of the stools of the affected child is sent to the laboratory for examination under a microscope. In addition, it is extremely easy to treat this disease with medications prescribed by your doctor.
