Be wary of the "kissing disease" during the New Year and festivals, these 6 groups of people can't kiss babies at all

CD Mom, CD Mom, let's kiss, and the baby is sent to the hospital directly! Can you believe that something as bizarre as it sounds, happens every year? The 2-year-old cute baby was paralyzed after being kissed, and the 8-year-old girl was infected with the virus after being kissed... These real cases have not only stayed on the online platform, but also stayed in the hearts of countless mothers. As far as I'm concerned, it's both shocking and terrifying every time I recall it. There are really too many people who like to kiss their babies, and it is a little hard to guard against bringing their babies home every time. Think about it too, whoever sees a cute baby is not "heart is about to melt", and it is inevitable to touch and kiss. CC and DD have encountered this kind of thing since childhood anyway. For this reason, every time I want to do everything I can to get away with it. You say, feel free to touch, hug can be tolerated, no need to kiss without saying a word. It's no wonder that I'm strong on guard. If I'm negligent for a while, kissing may also become a "weapon that hurts the baby". To talk about the lethality of this kiss, we have to start with the kissing disease. 1. What is kissing disease? Strictly speaking, "kissing disease" does not refer to a single disease in medicine. The "kissing disease" we are talking about here includes: ● Diseases caused by contact with saliva and droplets, such as infectious mononucleosis caused by infection with EB virus; ● Herpes simplex gums caused by herpes simplex virus Inflammation, encephalitis, influenza, etc. The most terrifying thing is that these two viruses, which can be called "behind the scenes" of kissing disease, have a strong sense of existence. Statistics show that 95% of adults carry the EB virus. According to WHO data in 2016, about 3.7 billion people worldwide (under 50 years old) are infected with herpes simplex virus type 1. At the same time, these two viruses are highly infectious and are mainly transmitted by mouth-to-mouth. For example: kissing, droplets, sharing utensils... After an adult is infected, it may not necessarily become ill. The virus will only lurk in the body, and it will play its role when the person's resistance is weak. This means that many people are invisible infections, and as long as they do not get sick, they will have little impact on their health and life. However, babies with an imperfect immune system and low resistance are more dangerous, and they are more likely to get sick after being infected. After being infected with EB virus, the disease caused is mostly benign self-limiting disease (similar to the flu), most of them can be cured within 1-2 weeks with good care, and a few will have serious consequences such as hemophagocytic syndrome. The most dangerous is the encephalitis caused by herpes simplex virus, especially the encephalitis caused by neonatal infection. You see, kissing disease must not be underestimated, for the sake of children, we have to guard against it! What are the symptoms of kissing disease? The virus that causes "kissing disease" is different, and the symptoms of the baby will also be different. ● In the case of EB virus, persistent fever for 1-2 weeks, swollen lymph nodes (mainly on both sides of the neck), red and swollen tonsils, sore throat, rash on the body, splenomegaly, etc. ● If it is herpes simplex virus, the overall symptoms are various, sore throat, swollen lymph nodes (more common), herpes on the body, etc., it is possible, in severe cases, there will be erythema zoster on the oral mucosa, and even large-scale redness on the skin Spotted papules or bullseye papules. You can also see that some symptoms, such as fever and sore throat, are similar to those of a cold. Mothers are likely to accidentally misjudge, leading to delays in their illness. Therefore, we still have to be more careful. If the baby has the above symptoms after being kissed, we must be vigilant. In addition, pay special attention to whether there are major lymph nodes on the baby's neck, whether there is a rash on the skin, whether the throat is red and swollen, etc., which are different from cold symptoms. If it occurs, it is necessary to seek medical examination in time. Of course, the best way is to prevent kissing from the root cause. How to prevent kissing disease? When it comes to the prevention of kissing disease, the most important thing is to avoid children being kissed casually as much as possible. 1. Keep away from the 6 categories of people Remember the following categories of people, especially pay attention to keeping children away. ① People with herpes on the mouth or face If an adult has blisters (rash or blisters) on the mouth or face, never kiss the baby. You know, this is not necessarily a fire, it may be a real virus. In particular, there are several or a dozen small blisters that are connected together, and accompanied by fever or local lymph node enlargement, it is very likely to be infected with the herpes simplex virus. Because these are the typical manifestations of local infection of herpes simplex virus. It may not be harmful to adults, but it can be fatal to children. In line with the principle of "better kill the wrong than let go", the baby cannot be kissed by such people, and the place with herpes should be cleaned in time to prevent the virus from entering the baby's mouth indirectly. ② People with a cold If an adult has a cold, the virus may be transmitted to the child when kissing, resulting in a cold virus infection, and even complications such as bronchitis, pneumonia, and otitis media. Therefore, people with cold symptoms should never kiss their babies, not only severe symptoms such as runny nose, sneezing, and fever, but also initial symptoms such as mild sore throat and headache. If the caregiver at home has a cold, it is best to wear a mask when in contact with the baby. If you encounter someone with a cold outdoors, don't hesitate to take the baby away from the scene. ③ People with oral diseases We all know that there are countless bacteria in the oral cavity of adults. If adults have oral diseases such as gingivitis, pulpitis, tooth decay, etc., there will be a large number of pathogenic bacteria in the oral cavity. Once the baby is kissed, these germs may enter the baby's mouth through saliva, causing oral health or other complications. ④ People with diarrhea Diarrhea is an intestinal infectious disease, but the pathogenic bacteria enter the human intestinal tract through the mouth. What's more, the baby's gastrointestinal function and digestive immune system are not fully developed, and it is easy to be recruited when exposed to germs. According to statistics, 18 million infants and young children in my country are infected with rotavirus and cause gastroenteritis every year. When the person with diarrhea kisses the baby's mouth, it will greatly increase the chance of the baby's infection. ⑤ People infected with Helicobacter pylori According to the estimation of the World Gastrointestinal Organization: China is the country with the largest number of people infected with Helicobacter pylori, more than half. Helicobacter pylori is particularly infectious. It is no exaggeration to say that "one person is infected and the whole family suffers". Kissing, sharing utensils, and eating without washing your hands can all be contagious, especially in children. After infection, the child's digestion and absorption function will be affected, resulting in delayed growth and development, and even cause chronic gastritis and other diseases. If a family member is diagnosed, don't kiss the baby again. ⑥ People who wear heavy makeup Some cosmetics contain a lot of mercury, lead and other chemicals, which are not good for the baby. If you wear makeup and come into close contact with your baby, chemical substances will get on your baby's skin, which may cause diseases such as contact dermatitis. What's more, the child may also eat it into the mouth, further affecting the health of the body. In the United States, there have been reported cases of lead poisoning in infants who accidentally licked the powder on the mother's face because they were face to face with their mothers. So, no matter who they are, as long as they wear makeup, we try not to let the children get too close. 2. Reasonably express refusal. We want to stay away from the crowd and refuse to kiss, but what if it is difficult to be kind? As mentioned at the beginning, every time I go home for the holidays, my relatives are enthusiastic. Seeing the child all the way, his eyes lit up, the left sentence "it's so big", the right sentence "come to me". After some touching and hugging, looking at the milky little face, I couldn't help but want to take a sip. At this time, what should we do? Let me tell you, let's find an excuse to leave. For example: The child has been a little uncomfortable recently~ We are still too young, and we are a little recognizable~ In fact, after we say this, as long as people who hear it have a little emotional intelligence, they will be able to understand what we mean, which is not good. Go on. If you are really embarrassed to say it, there is another trick: we can turn passive into active, stand in the child's point of view, pretend to use a baby's tone, and say to the other party, "Come on, give grandma a kiss". In the past, every time DD did this, it always caused a lot of laughter, and the adults didn't mention the kiss. Mom C said that although in our opinion, kissing is a way of expressing love. But the child really can't stand it. Don't wait for the kiss to end, the adults are satisfied, but the children suffer. Love can be expressed in any way, not necessarily with a kiss. It's a holiday soon, and it is inevitable to take the children to visit relatives. Worrying that everyone will encounter this situation, I would like to remind you: For the sake of children, stay away if you should, and refuse if you need to. Last but not least, I wish all my sisters a happy Mid-Autumn Festival!
