When all of sudden my daughter started rejecting all salty and spicy food, I was a little worried and checked her mouth.
I could see the white patches and coating on tongue. Within no time I was able to diagnose that's nothing serious but an Oral Thrush. 📍 Oral thrush is fungal infection looks like white coating or white patches on the tongue, mouth, inner cheeks, and back of the throat sometimes. 📍 Oral thrush caused by an overgrowth of the fungus;Candida albicans. 📍Reason :- usually we have a small amount of this fungi in our mouth and skin, low immunity, disturbed Gut health may stimulate the overgrowth of this yeast and that results into oral thrush. 😈 Usually we take curd in our routine diet, since the weather was bad here we avoid curd for two days and that results in poor Gut health. 📍 Treatment I gave :- No medicines for first day :- rather give lots of natural fruits and juices rich in vit C, Curd, proper hydration and strictly no sugar. Maintaining oral hygiene:- toddler tends to put some or other things in mouth so be gentle and ask them not to do that, trim the nails, frequent hand washing, gargle with lukewarm water and turmeric, brushing teeth twice. 📌📌:- If you know your kid is on some medication or having low immunity, consult your paediatrician immediately. #kidshealth#oralthrushbaby#doctormomslife#toddlermom#momlife

Eye Allergies in Kids: Causes and Treatment
Eye allergies occur when allergens get into the eye. Common allergens include pollen, dust, and pet dander. Kids with allergies in their eyes have red, itchy and watery eyes.
To prevent eye allergies in kids, minimize their exposure to allergens.
Ways that you can reduce exposure to allergy triggers include:
Using an air filter and vacuuming frequently
During allergy season, encouraging kids to wear hats and sunglasses to protect their eyes
Washing your child's hands frequently (particularly during allergy season) and remind them not to touch their eyes.
Closing windows and minimizing time outside during pollen season
Switching your child to glasses rather than contacts to minimize irritation
Washing your child’s hair nightly to remove any allergens
