Treatment of influenza

! In order to avoid complications and to set the exact diagnosis is necessary to consult a doctor!

You should not apply for treatment advice to the pharmacy, as it may not be safe for your baby!

Treatment:

treatment of sick children is preferably carried out at home, hospitalization is shown in the following cases:
- Severe form of influenza;
- Complicated course (meningitis, encephalitis, pneumonia, etc.)
- The neonatal period (!) – Regardless of the severity of the disease, as well as hospitalized infants;
- According to epidemiological indications – the child to remain in a closed institution or organized collective (children’s home, a health camp);
- For social reasons (asocial family, street children, the inability to organize a “hospital at home”);

Basic therapy for influenza:

1. health-protective regime – bed rest for the duration of fever and intoxication, with a gradual transition to polupostelny – until recovery;
2. lacto-vegetarian diet rich in vitamins, drink (hot tea, fruit drinks (cranberry or cranberry), mineral water);
3. anti-inflammatory and antipyretic (Nurofen for children, paracetamol), at a temperature of 38.0 or higher (if not indicated to reduce the temperature at lower figures – a history of febrile convulsions);
4. physical cooling methods (wiping poluspirtovym solution);
