Drug treatment

Drug treatment carried out in a complex of recreational activities should be based on the necessary minimum and determined by the type of nosology. Modern features of the course of respiratory diseases and new data on the immune system make the problem of choosing effective immunocorrective drugs, the spectrum of which is quite wide, particularly urgent:
• immunocorrectors of natural origin (vaccines, endotoxins, nucleic acids, interferons, interferonogens, thymus preparations, etc.);
• synthetic drugs (polyoxidonium, lycopid, immunofan, bendazole, etc.).
Most immunocorrective drugs (stimulants, modulators) selectively affect different parts of the immune system, therefore, their appointment requires strict consideration of indications and contraindications, dynamic clinical and immunological control, and repeated courses of immunocorrections are usually carried out no more than 1-2 times a year.

CHARACTERISTICS OF CHILDHOOD IMMUNITY

The human immune system begins to form before the birth of a child. Its place and extent of health effects are genetically programmed. From birth to puberty, step by step, the structure and functions of the immune system are formed. The development of the immune system is undergoing a number of critical stages that must be taken into account when assessing the state of health, the formation of preventive programs and the appointment of treatment for diseases. The main cell of the immune system is a lymphocyte. In addition, tissue macrophages, neutrophils, and natural killers (ECs) also participate in providing an immune response. The development of the body’s immune system continues throughout the entire period of childhood. In the process of development of the child’s immune system, “critical” periods are distinguished, i.e. periods of maximum risk of developing infectious diseases associated with insufficient immune system functions. Allocate innate and acquired immunity. Innate immunity is provided by factors of natural resistance. Some mechanisms of the fight against infection are innate, that is, they are present in the body before meeting with any infectious agent and their activity does not depend on a previous meeting with microorganisms.

Why do some children get sick often

If the child is sick more than six times a year or the recovery period lasts longer than 10-12 days, then such a child can be called “FREQUENTLY ill.” Many are used to thinking that the psychological state of the child does not affect his well-being and health. That is why any runny nose or cough is “attributed” to a weak immunity or “painful” environment in a kindergarten or school. Psychologists conducted a series of studies and studied under what conditions ordinary and even familiar childhood diseases can be psychologically motivated.
Let’s look at the different options for the causes of frequent incidence of children from the point of view of psychology in two aspects: the reason is in the child himself and if the reason is in the family, in the parents.

There is such a concept in psychology as “secondary benefit”, it is a kind of benefit that is not immediately visible. In the foreground, there is no benefit on the surface, high fever, sore throat, cough, etc., what good can it be, what other benefit! But … as soon as the baby gets sick, mother, of course, pays special attention to the child, his condition. And oddly enough, it is at this moment that the child can feel loved. If we consider the languages ​​of love according to G. Chapman, then there are such languages ​​as: Continue reading
