How to take a child to Chinese medicine
Traditional Chinese medicine diagnoses the disease by looking, hearing, asking, and cutting through the “four consultations”. After passing the “four consultations” examination, a treatment method is formulated based on the diagnosis of traditional Chinese medicine and prescription medication is prescribed.
The pediatricians of traditional Chinese medicine have listed “visiting” as the first place, thinking that “children are sick inside and must be outside”, so they can look at internal diseases through “visiting”.
Because infants and toddlers often cannot cooperate well with doctors when they are visiting doctors, they often suffer from pulses and cries, and often suffer children who are often unable to accurately describe the condition. Therefore, parents of children should make some necessary preparations before bringing their children to the doctor.
Observation includes observing the expression and color of the face and body, looking at the eyes, tongue, mouth, nose, ears, etc., and also looking at the color change of the fingerprint as a basis for auxiliary diagnosis.
To make the “visit” accurate, parents should appease the sick child and heal the nervousness of the sick child. Don’t be scared when the child is crying, and try to make the child see the doctor in a calm state.
In addition, do not give your child makeup, nails, etc. before going to the clinic, as these are not conducive to checking the child’s condition.
Traditional Chinese medicine looks at the tongue, depending on the tongue coating and tongue quality.
Parents should not give their children too much, too cold, and colored foods before seeing a sick child.
Excessive cold food diet The tongue is stimulated to produce a shade change; eat colored foods, such as oranges, orange juice becomes yellow tongue coating color, eat chocolate instead of tongue coating to dark brown, eat bayberry, sour plum will change the tongueRedness will affect the doctor’s normal diagnosis.
Many illnesses in children cause rashes.
Before the child visits the parents, they need to see if the child has a rash all over his body and where the rash is.
Before coming to the hospital, it is best to wear easy-to-understand and easy-to-wear clothes for the doctor to check.
When examining children under the age of three, Chinese medicine practitioners should look at the color change of fingerprints. Parents should wash their children’s hands when they take their children to Chinese medicine. Don’t let the children mess around while waiting for the doctor. It is easy to see when the doctor looks at the fingerprints.
Changes in the child’s bowel movements have a certain effect on the diagnosis of the disease, especially those with diarrhea. When seeing a doctor, parents should bring a fresh stool, the armor is being tested, and if there is abnormal urine, they need to bring a bottle early in the morningUrine samples once come to the hospital for laboratory tests.
Hearing the “smell diagnosis” means to judge the nature of the disease by listening to the sound and smell.
Listen to sounds, including pediatric cough, crying, and voice. When parents bring their children to the clinic, they must comfort their children and avoid crying.
In addition to the smell that the doctor can feel, parents also need to cooperate to introduce the odor in the child’s mouth, the smell of urine, etc. for the doctor’s reference.
When asking the doctor for a “consultation”, the parents should report to the doctor including the child’s age-useful for reasonable medication; children’s chills, fever, including body temperature, fever duration-fever of the hands, feet, forehead or breastfeedingWhen the mouth is hot, etc .; Sick child sweating-sweating during the day or at night, sweating back without fever, headache, dizziness, pain in the limbs; urination-the frequency, shape, color, etc. of the child’s bowel movements;Dietary status-appetite status, drinking water status, special habits, etc .; sleep status-quietness, dreaming, screaming, crying, etc .; production history-whether term, normal labor, dystocia and birth status; Smith-including supplementary methodsAnd supplementary foods; growth and development history-including physical, mental development and learning.
The “cut diagnosis” includes pulse diagnosis and follow-up consultation.
Children’s pulse frequency often increases due to breastfeeding, crying, and activities. Therefore, parents should keep their children quiet before taking their children to the doctor to make them cooperate with the doctor’s inspection.
