interesting observation -. Acute cystitis in children is more common chronic.In the chronic form, it goes only in very severe cases, when parents have little interest in the health of the child or the child (usually a teenager) shy or for any other reason does not want to tell her parents about the ailment.
Traditionally, the disease is treated by means of medication with their skilful combination with folk.In general tactics to get rid of the disease depends on its underlying cause.So, if candidiasis (thrush), the use of antibiotics (antibacterial drugs) may not give the desired effect as antibiotics provoke the growth of fungi - pathogens candidiasis.In such cases the child are both gynecology and urology.The gynecologist prescribes antifungals.Here's how to treat cystitis in children correctly.
If the cause of the disease is the use of unsuitable for cleaning the hygiene or improper washing away even strong antibiotics will give only a temporary effect.The same effect will give a short preparations, if the child is accustomed to tolerate, not to go to the toilet with urge - it also provokes inflammation.This is especially true of schoolgirls.Moms have to explain to them how important it is to visit the toilet in a timely manner and that does not need to be ashamed of in school.
But back to the methods of disposal.Treatment of cystitis in children folk remedies are not less popular.Traditionally used for this grass has a diuretic effect and anti-inflammatory.These include chamomile, sage (to make them baths), bearberry.Inside are mineral waters with low salinity and drink plenty of clean drinking water.But we must remember that not always cystitis in children accept treatment is the same as in adults.So, chamomile can cause drying of the mucous membranes of the genital organs, and as a result - the appearance of sores on them.So frequently used hot water bottle can cause inflammation spread up the urinary system, the kidneys.Because of the hot-water bottles, as well as taking warm and hot baths should be discarded.In a pinch you can put the bottle with warm water between your legs (on the stomach can not be!)

According symptoms and the results of urine analysis doctor diagnoses.When cystitis urinary defined a large number of epithelial cells, leukocytes (testifying about the inflammatory process).Squirrel No specific density is normal.
