Suppositories for colds

The treatment of small children with drugs is sometimes quite difficult. Some children, by virtue of their age, do not yet know how to swallow tablets, and the older baby may simply not want to take the medicine. For this reason, many medicines intended for use in pediatrics are produced in a specific convenient form - in the form of suppositories. For example, with frequent viral infections and sore throats, a cold suppository is effective and comfortable, which can be used to treat even the smallest babies.

Indications of the candles for colds

Small children are prone to colds, since their immune defense is for a long time at the stage of formation. In particular, the weakness of immunity manifests itself during the off-season: from October to December or from February to April. Needless to say about the period of epidemics, when the children's organism is massively attacked by viruses and pathogenic microorganisms.

For one year the child can get sick several times, especially if he often visits public places or goes to kindergarten. To combat colds, the pediatrician usually appoints complex remedies in the form of syrups, drops. However, the suppository for colds can in some cases be irreplaceable:

  • for the treatment of a child under 1 year;
  • with repeated vomiting, when the medication taken orally does not have time to assimilate;
  • when allergic to tablets or suspensions.

Of course, the suppository for colds can also have their contraindications. Therefore, before you start treatment, you should carefully read the instructions for the selected medication.
