First aid to do

Sometimes, the enthusiasm of your child in the midst of the crowd, such as the Asian Games, makes you as a parent take part. But do not let this make you careless to forget the condition of your child who has allergies.

If allergy has recurred, there are several things you can do to ease it. The following are among them:

1. Stay calm

Described by Dr. Caessar Pronocitro M. Sc Sp.A, as a person who will handle allergic recurrence, you must remain calm. Because if you look panic, your child will also be increasingly anxious and symptoms of relapse can get worse.

In addition, panic will also make it difficult for you to think clearly to determine the action.

2. Get rid of allergens immediately

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends that if a child's allergen is outside the room, keep the child away from the allergen as much as possible. For example, children are allergic to dust, check the seats that will be occupied and clean from dust.

If necessary, as a precautionary measure, you can provide a mask to be worn by your child to avoid exposure to stadium dust.

3. Give antihistamines

"Antihistamine medicines can be given immediately when the child is allergic to relapse," explained Dr. Caessar. He also added that there are several other types of drugs such as eye drops and decongestants that can relieve allergy symptoms. So it's important to always carry it.

4. CPR for anaphylaxis

Reporting from Healthline, if a child has anaphylaxis such as not breathing, coughing, or unmoving body, you may need to do CPR (Cardiopulmonary resuscitation) to reopen a narrowed or closed airway.

CPR involves about 100 chest compressions per minute until help arrives. But keep in mind, CPR is only allowed if you have attended first aid training in a trusted organization or institution, for example, the Indonesian Red Cross (PMI) or Search and Rescue (SAR).

5. Take the child to a health facility

The step that you must of course do is to bring the child to the nearest health facility to get further treatment. In the Asian Games arena there are several health tent spots. Just in case, it would be better if you find out from the start where the health tent is located.

If your baby's allergies are quite severe, chances are he will get an epinephrine injection.

"Epinephrine must be given immediately if the child's condition is severe enough. If the child's allergic reaction from the beginning shows the condition of anaphylaxis, you must immediately take him to a health facility to get an epinephrine injection, "Dr. Caessar gave an explanation.

Even though allergies in children are quite risky, don't let that confine your enthusiasm to bring your child to witness the excitement of Indonesian athletes competing in the Asian Games. Moreover, this year Indonesia acts as the host. As long as you keep it away from allergens, your baby's allergies won't recur.
