The child fester eyes.
most common cause of dacryocystitis in young children up to two months of life is "a gelatin plug" that clogs the nasolacrimal canal.Other causes are extremely rare.The disease occurs often enough, about five percent of all newborns.The gelatinous tube is formed from epithelial cells and mucus baby.Immediately after birth, when the little baby makes its first breath, the mucus plug is pushed out on their own.But sometimes it does not, the plug stays in the channel and begins its inflammation.Most often, the inflammation becomes visible on the eighth day of the baby's life.But sometimes it may start on the second day or even in the second month.If the pressure on the inner corner of the eye pus, then you should immediately rebёnochka Doctors.And in any case without the exposed diagnosis can not start self-treatment of the disease.

After each feeding day mom have to perform massage the lacrimal sac, which is located in the inner corner of glazik.it should be done very carefully, gently pressing on the bag and generating traffic up and down at least eight times.When properly produced pus should begin to massage a little more flow.If it does not, then the broken machinery performance.Do not be afraid to press your fingers - light and delicate touch during a massage will not lead to any effect.It is best to begin treatment at an earlier age.Because.that after half a year already will rebёnochku, conservative treatment is meaningless.So it is impossible to treat dacryocystitis without a massage.Antibiotic drops and eye wash will only remove the symptoms without eliminating the cause.And inflammation will start all over again.Basically, when properly conducted the treatment of the disease disappears in two to three weeks.If recovery does not occur.the doctor appointed by the nasolacrimal lavage tubule in the hospital.This procedure is performed with local anesthesia ophthalmologist.The doctor inserts a special little nasolacrimal duct probe and produces washing with a solution of an antibiotic.After washing, need some time to carry out conservative treatment.But if you tighten the treatment of the disease for more than six months, in this case, most likely need to have surgery.The film after a while begins to transform into connective tissue, which is removed by a simple probe is very heavy.
But still often dacryocystitis cured after properly conducted conservative treatment.Most importantly - comply strictly with all the doctor's instructions and proper patience.so you can follow a few simple tips that would deliver her baby as soon as possible on this issue:
- try as often as possible to clean up there with glazik accumulated pus.Do it with a soft cotton swab dipped in antiseptic solution, or in the infusion of herbs;
- perform daily massage.If you do not exactly remember the technique of its performance, it is best not to be shy and again to clarify her doctor.It depends on the state of health and the health of your baby.Technique is very simple: take the one hand gently child's head and fix it, and the little finger of your other hand gently produce motion from the top of the inner corner of the eye to the bottom;

Sometimes, in very rare cases cause dacryocystitis becomes gelatinous tube and nasolacrimal overgrowing tubule.In this case, conservative treatment is carried out only for the removal of the symptoms of inflammation, and the mainstay of treatment is surgery.
But in most cases, the disease passes, unless, of course, my mother diligently complies with all requirements of the treating physician.And my mother and she will be able to notice that every day of pus flows less and glazik starting to look more and more is healthy.
