Many children under 5 years of age are admitted to the hospital with flu complications (eg pneumonia).

For children, it is difficult to understand some symptoms of common flu – headache and muscle pain. There may be some more symptoms except these. Once these symptoms are seen, the child should be taken to the doctor so that he can thoroughly examine them. Antiviral medicines may be needed in children’s case.

How can a baby’s flu
When the person with flu is talking while talking or sneezing and cough, the flu virus causes the wind to grow in the air. This virus can directly enter the body of another person. Or if the virus is on any object, it can reach the nose, eyes or face by touching that object.
It is very intense and it can spread from five to ten days starting from the days of its symptoms. The virus spreads even more rapidly among those who have weak immunity.
The symptoms of flu can be different from each other. If its symptoms are mild, then you may not be able to understand that you are suffering from flu or you can forget it as a common cold cough. It can easily spread viruses among others.
Medical treatment of flu
The doctor can give antiviral medicines when the child’s flu appears. Antiviral medicines help prevent viral infections. It helps to reduce the flu of the baby and make him feel better. It also helps prevent deadly complications like pneumonia. Antiviral usually works best if applied to the symptoms of flu in two days.
One thing to remember is that the antibiotic does not work in the flu case. Because antibiotics prevent bacteria, not viruses. Although some cases may require antibiotics, if the flu causes bacterial infections like pneumonia, ear infections or bronchitis,
If the child is at risk of flu, you may start antiviral medication with the doctor’s symptoms. All children below 5 years are at risk of flu, especially those younger than 2 years of age. Pre-maturing children or those with asthma and vaccine-cell disease conditions are at risk of flu.
If the child is flu, then the doctor should keep the medicine and not in any direction, he should be given more rest and drink sufficient fluids. He may not want to eat more, so give him a little food. If the child starts eating solid then he can give him a soup.
If the child seems iller, then he may be given acetaminophen or ibuprofen with the advice of a doctor. But in no way should the aspirin be given without consulting the doctor. This can cause serious complications like Reye Syndrome. Do not give cold medicines to baby chicks or coughs. It does not help to cold or a cough, but it can cause further damage.
Babies can feel good within 3-5 days but not all children will be the same. Someone may have a cough for two weeks or more.
What can be done to prevent flu?
According to the Center for Disease Control, one should take flu vaccine once every healthy baby is 6 months old at the age of 6 months. If the child is younger, then the people around him should take the vaccine to reduce the risk of infection in the child.
Vaccinations are more important if the child is at risk. If the child has diabetes, the immune system is weak, there is anaemia or it is important to take the flu vaccine for your child’s heart, lung or kidney problem.
However, a flu vaccine is not able to prevent the flu in 100% cases. It depends on the overall health of the child (vaccines are more effective for a healthy vigorous child). Also on the year that the vaccine is taking place, its effectiveness depends on the type of virus that is causing the virus.
Ensure clear access to everyone in the house. The hands of the child should be washed with soap and hot water and the family members should wash their hands regularly. If you do not have water, you can use hand sanitizer.
Tissue should be used during sneezing or a cough and should be dropped in the dustbin immediately after use. Try not to touch your eyes, face, and nails again and again. Children’s toys should be cleaned regularly with bactericidal. Viruses or bacteria can survive for two to eight hours. So try to delete everything that is always hand-held after a while.
The bacteria usually go from one to the other. If your child visits other sick children or older people, then he may also get sick. And keep the child away from sick people to deal with this problem.
Many people can not understand the need for adequate rest. But taking adequate rest helps increase our immune system.
If the child has the single flu, then that year, it is unlikely that the flu will be again. Because of his immune system, he will be able to prevent the virus. The next time the vaccine may not work, the next time the outbreak of different viruses will occur. For this reason flu vaccine is recommended every year.
