Influenza and SARS in allergic children. How to help a child?

Are you familiar with a situation where a child goes to kindergarten for several days and then falls ill at home for 2-3 weeks? Everything is even worse if the baby suffers from allergies, as any cold turns into a parental nightmare. How to help an allergic child recover faster?
Influenza and SARS in allergic children. How to help a child?

In the cold season, the number of cases of acute respiratory viral infections increases significantly. This is due to the fact that the child spends most of the time in the summer on the street, and with the onset of rains and colds he is increasingly finding himself in a room where viruses are easier to spread. During the heating season, a lot of viruses “fly” in the dry air in the kindergarten: from the banal respiratory syncytial to severe strains of the flu. This fall, winter and spring there is an increased activity of three flu strains at once:

varieties of virus A / California / 7/2009 (H1N1) – “swine” flu;
varieties of the virus B / Brisbane / 60/2008;
varieties of influenza A virus / Hong Kong / 4801/2014 (H3N2).
In this situation, you need to know exactly how to protect the baby from the disease and how to help him if he still “grabbed” the virus. This information is especially useful for parents whose children are allergic. After all, an allergic child (atopic) is sick much more often, and suffers even a mild cold harder than usual.

Features of acute respiratory viral infections and influenza in children with allergies (atopic)
Now you can find such a thing as the syndrome of the “often sick child”. The fact that the child is really sick often can be said:

if a child aged 3 to 4 years is sick more often 6 times a year;
if a child aged 4 to 5 years is sick more often 5 times a year;
if a child over 5 years old is sick more often 4 times a year.
In fact, any respiratory infection in children with chronic diseases and functional disorders occurs more often, is more complicated, and more likely to lead to undesirable complications. Why it happens?

The fact is that the connection of allergies and the virus forms a vicious circle. Allergies significantly increase the child’s susceptibility to viruses, and also increases the risk of complications. In turn, the virus contributes to the appearance of the atopic process, thereby exacerbating the main disease – the flu or the common cold. Allergic reactions to the breakdown products of microorganisms and to the medicines used are most often added to this. As a result, a vicious dependence is formed when one disease provokes and strengthens another.

The situation does not improve, and the fact that the flu or SARS can provoke a negative reaction of the body to seemingly familiar to the child products or environmental factors. That is why it is vital for children with allergies to choose the right treatment from the beginning.

How to help and not harm a child with allergies?
Unfortunately, there are few antiviral drugs that are suitable for allergic children. Increased demands are placed on such drugs: in addition to helping with the fight against influenza and SARS, the low likelihood of side effects and permission to use in childhood, these drugs must have another important quality – to be hypoallergenic, i.e. Do not provoke allergic reactions. Tsitovir-3 * powder is one of the few antiviral agents on the Russian market that have been specially developed taking into account the characteristics of this group of babies.

The main advantage of the powder form of the drug “Tsitovir-3” is the absence of sugar. It contains only non-allergenic fructose. Also in the composition of the drug there are no artificial additives, dyes or preservatives. All this makes it possible to use it for children with restrictions on sugar intake and with increased allergic reactions.

In the assortment of “Tsitovira-3” there are powders with various tastes: cranberries, strawberries and oranges. But for children prone to allergies, it is better to choose a neutral powder, without flavoring. According to the instructions, before use, the drug must be dissolved in boiled water. It turns out a light, slightly sweet drink, which children really like. This makes it easy for children from 1 to 3 years of age to take the medicine, who often experience a gag reflex when taking tablets, capsules or syrups.

In addition to high safety and hypoallergenicity, the important advantages of Tsitovir-3 powder are a short course of treatment (4 days) and compatibility with all symptomatic agents, and even antibiotics. Timely and rational use of this drug can break the vicious cycle of allergies and SARS, as it provides a faster recovery, prevents the development of complications and exacerbation of allergies.

Seven troubles – one answer
Tsitovir-3 powder is effective against most pathogens of acute respiratory viral infections, including various strains of the influenza virus. Pediatricians prescribe this drug for the prevention, treatment and prevention of the development of complications of these diseases for children from the age of one year.
