Healthy children often have enough mental heads. If a child suddenly becomes restless and flushed, it is usually a sign of fever; glassy eyes and fist clenching in both hands are often a sign of convulsion; and flexion and roll of both legs are the manifestations of abdominal pain. But if the crying is weak or not, it means that the condition is serious.
If the child usually eats well, refuses milk or is unable to suck suddenly, or eats less, there may be infection; if the child has abdominal distension, the odor of the mouth is sour, it indicates that the baby has indigestion.
Children such as restlessness before bed, kicking quilt in sleep, or reddening face after waking up are often a reflection of fever; continuous chewing or molars before and after sleep may be too exciting or Ascaris infection before bedtime.
If the child’s breathing becomes coarser and the frequency increases, facial redness may be fever; shortness of breath, nasal wing movement, bluish purple around the lips, intercostal muscle subsidence or sternum depression during breathing, may be suffering from pneumonia. Children often have cyanosis and gray complexion. They should be on guard against myocarditis or congenital heart disease.
After birth, the weight gain rate increases. If the rate of weight gain slows down or decreases, the effects of diseases such as diarrhea, malnutrition, anemia and other symptoms or diseases should be suspected.
