Tell the mother how to increase immunity for sick or sick children.


      Probably the most worrying thing for a parent is the fear that their child will be sick and infected. With the ways to increase immunity for children below, parents will be completely assured of

Children are inherently very sensitive to risk factors for acute respiratory infections such as exposure to microbial pathogens, erratic weather changes, rain and sun, environmental pollution, etc., by the immune system. of immature children. Not only sick children but also healthy children are also at risk of recurrent upper respiratory tract infections, leading to overuse of antibiotics, causing drug-resistant bacteria.

* Vaccination.

Mothers should not take vaccination lightly because vaccination is a way to increase immunity for children, avoiding minor illnesses. Vaccines create antibodies to a virus or bacteria, making the overall immune status of the body much higher. Mothers should keep in mind the basic vaccines needed for children today, which are:

– Vaccine against whooping cough and H.influenza type B (Hib)

There are two types of diphtheria and pertussis vaccines including whole-cell pertussis, tetanus, hepatitis B, and Hib components; and pertussis vaccine with acellular pertussis, diphtheria, tetanus, Hib, and polio components.

– Measles vaccine.

– Pneumococcal vaccine

Causes of upper respiratory infections are mainly viruses (accounting for 70-85%) such as rhinovirus, influenza A…; Bacterial agents account for 10-15%, led by pneumococcus. The pneumococcal vaccine is very effective. The rate of children infected with pneumococcal disease decreased; the causes of pneumonia, pneumococcal meningitis were greatly reduced. In addition, children also need to be vaccinated against pneumococcal disease, and help protect children from getting sick when the weather changes.

– Flu vaccine

This is another vaccine parents should consider taking. The prevalence of this vaccine in different countries. In Japan, this rate is very high, so the rate of flu infection is reduced, there are few deaths. However, the sad thing is that this rate in Vietnam is also not high.

Besides, according to a long-term study, this vaccine also helps reduce a number of other diseases related to upper respiratory tract infections.

* Behavior change .

From a young age, parents need to give their children a habit of exercising, whether it is more or less, avoiding crowded places, but in fact this is very difficult in big cities like Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, so the percentage of children infections are higher in these cities.

* Nutrition .

One factor that parents should not ignore, is the way to increase the child’s immunity is to take care of the child’s diet. A well-balanced diet helps to increase the body’s resistance to disease.

* Use clean air source.

The source of clean air at home is also partly thanks to parents. Parents who do not smoke also contribute to a significant reduction in the incidence of minor illnesses in children. In addition, parents should also protect children and themselves from secondhand smoke. Research shows that the rate of otitis media is significantly increased in children whose parents smoke. Children with recurrent episodes of wheezing often have parents who smoke. Passive smoking increases the accumulation of pneumococcal bacteria in the respiratory tract. The risk of recurrent wheezing in these children was also three times higher than in non-smokers.

* Immune-boosting therapy.

Children who need a lot of immune stimulation include: children who go to kindergarten, have relatives who smoke, live in an urban environment, have many siblings at home, premature babies, low birth weight, allergies…

Stimulants, ways to increase immunity for children have the effect of strengthening the immune system, helping the body fight infections better.
