Parasite In My Little Daughter
Possible parasite in my little daughter...
My daughter is 16 months old and I am concerned about her health. I would like to know how do I recognize if she has "parasite?"
What are the symptoms and the treatment to get rid of "parasite" from my daughter's body?
How is the activities if my baby has "parasite?"
What are the symptoms?
Your question is a difficult one to answer. The symptoms of parasites vary greatly because there are so many different types of parasites to consider.
Also, what may be a parasite symptom could also be the symptom of something else entirely.
What makes you think there is a parasite in your little daughter? Is she experiencing a lot of diarrhea? Constipation? Bloating? Rashes?
Those are the most obvious and common signs of intestinal parasites. A yeast infection is also a type of parasite problem and that may result in a chalky white appearance on the tongue (usually called thrush) and possibly even sores.
If you would like to give me more specific details, I can try to help a little better.
The truth is, most people have parasites of some type in their body. Our immune system helps to keep them under control so that we don't develop uncomfortable symptoms.
If our immune system is weak or unable to cope, that's when we start to get sick and notice parasite symptoms.
Do you breast feed your baby still? This can be very helpful in improving her immune system so that she can fight off infection naturally.
If you are able to locate some good organic yogurt in your area, try giving her some of that. Good yogurt that doesn't have added sugar in it, contains healthy and friendly bacteria that also helps with digestion and boosts the immune system.
If it's constipation that your daughter is experiencing, be sure she is drinking enough water. Lack of water intake is one of the most common causes of constipation in people of all ages.
Again, it's hard for me to advise you without more details on what your daughter is experiencing, but if you'd like to give me more information, I'll try to be more specific.
