1. Infant Hepatitis Syndrome
Harmful object: Newborns with physiological jaundice that cannot be cured for a long time
Harm caused: The main manifestation of infantile hepatitis syndrome is jaundice, some of which occur again after the physiological jaundice of the newborn has completely subsided, and some of which persist and worsen gradually. The main manifestations of jaundice are yellowing of the sclera, skin, urine, and even stained with yellow diapers. In the case of obstructive jaundice, due to the inability of bile to enter the intestine, the stool turns white, known as pottery earth color. The abdomen expands due to enlargement and bloating of the liver and spleen, and sometimes obvious varicose veins in the abdominal wall can be seen. Due to the poor detoxification function of the liver and the poor resistance of children, it is easy for them to merge with infections of other organs, especially respiratory infections. Many children have no symptoms, and pneumonia can be detected on chest X-ray, and diarrhea is not uncommon. Moreover, this infection is difficult to control with antibiotics and cannot be cured, and in severe cases, it can pose a life-threatening risk.
Prevention guidelines: If a newborn has worsening or prolonged physiological jaundice after birth, it is necessary to seek medical treatment at the hospital. If diseases such as omphalitis, pneumonia, and diarrhea are found, timely and thorough treatment should be given. After birth, the stool should turn from dark green to yellow in the fetus. If it turns gray yellow and gradually turns white, it is necessary to seek medical attention in a timely manner.
