Symptoms, treatment and prevention of viral diseases.

ARI is a group of viral diseases with similar manifestations: high body temperature, catarrhal phenomena (inflammation of the throat, cough, runny nose) or intestinal disorders (so-called rotavirus infection).

Since the viruses are especially active in the autumn-winter season, and students are at this time in close contact with each other, then, of course, for these seasons the greatest incidence of schoolchildren in acute respiratory viral infections is greatest, since infection occurs both from sick children and from simple virus carriers. In addition, the susceptibility to acute respiratory viral infections in children is very high. The most severe type of acute respiratory viral infections is symptom and complication of the flu, which is usually "comes" in the form of epidemics and sometimes affects sometimes 80% of students.

Symptoms of SARS

· Increased temperature, weakness and muscle pain (due to intoxication).

· Severe runny nose, sneezing, sore throat, chest tightness, cough.

· Photophobia, lacrimation.

· In rotavirus types of acute respiratory viral infections - vomiting, nausea, chest disorder.


It is not necessary to relentlessly relate to acute respiratory infections and without medical assistance to try to treat a child independently, because:

· With severe inflammation of the larynx, the child may develop narrowing of the respiratory tract (cereals);

· 2-3 days before the viral infection joins the bacterial, and this can provoke serious complications (pneumonia, acute otitis media, sinusitis, obstructive bronchitis, laryngitis, tonsillitis);

· Symptoms of acute respiratory viral infections often resemble symptoms of other colds, initially not caused by viruses, but by microbes, for example, by streptococcus, and only by the doctor can determine this.

As a rule, treatment is carried out at home and with the adherence to bed rest, but under the control of a doctor. In cases of complications, a child's room may be inpatient. Depending on the symptoms, usually antiviral, antipyretic, anti-inflammatory, expectorants are prescribed. At timely initiated adequate treatment of acute respiratory viral infections ends with recovery in 6-8 days.

Prevention rules

· If the child complains of bad health, but he has no temperature, do not send him to school - this will save you from infecting several children in the classroom.

· At periods of peak morbidity, try to strengthen the immune system of the child with vitamins and prophylactics (drops, dragees, ointment for the nose).

· Refuse to attend mass events.

· Make sure the child is walking and physically active throughout the year.
