People often get colds, and therefore treat this ailment lightly. One of the main symptoms of this disease is snot. They can be of different colors, but when the nasal discharge is green, it is worth sounding the alarm, as this is already a serious symptom.
Green snot is a sign telling a person that the disease is severely neglected. They can indicate the presence of pneumonia or bronchitis. Green nasal discharge occurs when the body is infected with a virus and the immune system is actively fighting it.
Treatment of green snot in a child
Children often have green snot. This phenomenon indicates an ongoing bacterial infection. The green color of snot is often associated with the multiplication of bacteria, which die under the influence of leukocytes and also gradually die off. This phenomenon must be treated immediately, regardless of the cause. If the problem is started, then the snot can develop into chronic sinusitis. Treatment should be carried out under the supervision of a pediatrician, who should establish the cause of the green snot and prescribe drops or prescribe a course of antibiotics.
Before going to the doctor, it is necessary to cleanse the child's nasal passages by removing the remaining mucus. This will require rinsing the nasal cavity with saline.

It is important to know that rinsing solutions are also sold at the pharmacy. In addition, it is recommended that the child is often taken out to fresh air, and a damp and cool environment should be created in the apartment. You should not treat a baby with folk remedies, since the consequences may not be very good.
