Infant chest congestion treatment

Common Questions and Answers about Infant chest congestion treatment


Avatar n tn My one year old has been strugling with chest congestion. She has woke up with a fever and along with all that she has a rapid hart rate. Is this normal with a fever or being sick?
Avatar n tn The newborn infant is an obligate nose breather (must breathe through the nose). Nasal congestion in an infant in the first few months of life can interfere with nursing and cause life-threatening respiratory distress........................ For a baby too young to blow his or her nose, use an infant nasal aspirator. If mucus is thick and sticky, loosen it by putting 2 or 3 drops of salt solution (consisting of one-half teaspoon of salt to 1 cup of warm water) into each nostril.
Avatar dr m tn Every time you get a cold, notice how it usually starts in the throat with a tickle, a scratch, or a slight cough. It then progresses into chest congestion or travels up into the ears and the sinuses. You’ll have a low grade fever, mild chills, and a runny nose. Even if you start out with a runny nose, eventually, you’ll have throat symptoms later on. Sounds like a classic cold, right?
171768 tn?1324233699 As far as infant dysphagia goes, some signs would be eating slowly trying to swallow a single mouthful of food several times difficulty coordinating sucking and swallowing gagging during feeding drooling a feeling that food or liquids are sticking in the throat or esophagus, or that there is a lump in these areas discomfort in the throat or chest congestion in the chest after eating or drinking coughing or choking when eating or drinking (or very soon afterwards) wet or raspy sounding
189019 tn?1195519853 We also went and bought a vaporizer from vicks with the medicine you put in the little cup and the steam helped a little too. You can also try to put some infant vapor cream on his chest. Is he having a fever? With my daughter she had a fever consistently for about 6 days. The cough still hasnt completely subsided and they are thinking that she may have asthma now. They say the 2 are connected somehow and some kids grow out of it. They also say that it is more serious in babies that young..
Avatar f tn Does anyone else have or had an infant who suffered with allergies. I wish my little girl could get a little relief. Anyone has any suggestions for me?
242516 tn?1368227505 It is not useful to test if you've gotten over influenza or for screening for influenza for camp, vacation, school, or work to see if it's safe to go back. You could ask your doctor for a chest x-ray (CXR) if you have a ILI (Influenza-like-illness) with shortness of breath, abnormal vital signs other than fever, or a pulse oximetry of 95 or lower on room air. This is especially so for those with risk factors.
192918 tn?1199454779 My 9 mo old was in the hospital last night because she got a cold that moved into her chest. The congestion was making it hard for her to breathe. She was diagnosed with reactive airway disease (RAD), which I guess is similar to asthma, but since they can't test for asthma at this age they call it RAD. Anyway, this is the second time since September that she's been in the hospital for this. Poor kid can't get a common cold without having problems breathing...
Avatar n tn It is almost always in adults only. When she was a infant she had life threatning infections(whihc they think triggered it), that led to bad asthma and lung damage. She had horrible severe asthma from infancy on, numerous infections, and sinuses all the time. By the time she was 7 after 15 bouts of pneumonia, failed sinuses surgeries, and not responding like she should to being on daily oral steroids, we saw a new pulmonologist. He knew it was not just severe asthma, and did a chest CT.
Avatar f tn We are seeing a new allergist/immunologist in Dallas, and he mentioned a treatment called Xolair, which is an IgE inhibitor; unfortunately, it is only approved for patients 12 years and older. It is an injection which is given either every 2 weeks or every 4 weeks. It has been proven to reduce the incidents of asthma exacerbations as well as decrease the eczema flares. You might speak to your doctor about it.
Avatar m tn i have similar problem as yours with central chest pain during inhalation and continous progressive breathing problem for over 1.5 years and lots of other symptoms.
Avatar n tn Its very random and I cant pinpoint a trigger. I took her to the pediatrician and he had a chest x-ray done and also some bloodwork to test her methaglobin (SP?). We are waiting for results. My husband was born with a heart defect, so Im worried! Have you found anything out about your son?
Avatar n tn then again about 2 weeks later she came down with an ear infection, more chest congestion. She was put on amox. again. After being on the meds the 2nd time for 7 days she then got a red solid rash on her lower back and on the front where her leg meets her private area. The doc said to take her off the med until he saw her. By the time he saw her the rash dissipated to little spots and totally left from the front area.
Avatar n tn I got up from the couch and started walking, i could hardly feel the ground, i had chest pains, etc. My husband told me it was anxiety and quick gave me 1/2 of valium. I usually take 1/4, so i has very very tired and could hardly stay awake the rest of the night, but i felt better, so i knew he was right, it was only anxiety. It started out by talking about money. We're low on meds and we are needing to 'buy' some at higher prices, if you know what i mean.
Avatar n tn Almost like there was a muscle or something which sterted at the back of my nose and went down the back of my neck, so when I looked down (chin to chest) this muscle would pull and I would feel it at the back of my nose. I too get the feeling occasionally that my brain is almost shaking in my head for a second, and have noticed lately that when I close my eyes I feel like my body jerks and I have to oopen my eyes again.
Avatar n tn You may have negative thoughts about the baby and fears about harming the infant (although women who have these thoughts rarely act on them). ◦Postpartum depression interferes with a woman's ability to care for her baby. ◦When a woman with severe postpartum depression becomes suicidal, she may consider killing her infant and young children, not from anger, but from a desire not to abandon them. •Postpartum (puerperal) psychosis is the most serious postpartum disorder.
Avatar n tn I am going to investigate an anti-fungal treatment that I read about on another site. I also notice the smoky smell is very strong especially when I get emotional, tear up at a movie or just want to cry. I frequently have severe headaches or migraines around these episodes too. Thanks for has really made me feel sane.
Avatar n tn Feel like cold water in their vains ? My tingling/numbness moves about - feet / legs, hands/arms, chest, head etc... Here it is 12/13 and still doing the same thing. I have read things on other sites that say it's more then likely a transit immune reaction.. does that sound about right ? I aslo have Fibermyalgia and wonderd if anyone else had a auto immune condition? I am going to see my GP tomorrow to make sure we can start ruling out the scary GBS.
Avatar m tn windex clorox zappers PCO treatment washing everything Ozone treatment Carpet powder tea trea oil Gralic / Pottasium / Magnsm Foggers Citronella candles Yes when i washed everything compulsively, had the Ozone generator turn on for hours, when gone out of the house, Took a bath with fungus soap, or sulphur soap, changed sheets before going to sleep, took garlic/magnesium/potassium supplements daily, all this combined= better sleep. Or @ least i believe it work. Its a mind game here.
Avatar n tn He said I could have a virus, but there were no other indicators for that such as a cough, chest congestion etc... so after consulting with the oncall ob/gyn he removed the Mirena. At this point I was sad it didn't work, but in pain so I was glad it was out. I was frustrated that joint pain wasn't listed as one of the side effects, when a simple search on the internet revealed that numberous women had experienced it.
1462588 tn?1345065395 This is our 1st go at ICSI (DHs sperm falls just below coverline) I am entitiled to 2 cycles on the NHS but after my last m/c (nov 2010) they refused me IVF treatment for 12months as ivf is apparantly only avaliable if no pregnancys in 2years then they wanted to send me to m/c clinic, i broke down in the appt and my doc said i could have 1 cycle if no joy or m/c then go to m/c clinic then 2nd cycle!
Avatar n tn I knew good and well what the proceedure would cause and I know good and well the risks now that I have changed my mind about wanting to get preggers. I'm just looking for options. Has anyone seeked treatment to reverse this proceedure with success? Success meaning a full-term pregnancy. Thanks so much!
1647691 tn?1363727302 It's a shame that I ended up with flu, an emergency root canal treatment, and a silly cat that has decided to mark his territory since the implant. Plus he bought a mouse in the house last night. I hate mice : ) So really hoping for that heartbeat tomorrow.
