Turkey Medicals member and JCI Hospital department and Turkish Pediatric Diseases Specialist Dr. said that children are most affected by winter diseases…

During the winters in Turkey, some like flu, colds, sore throats, throat infections, sinusitis, respiratory tract infections, as well as their advanced types of bronchitis and pneumonia are more common in child, says Child Pediatrician in Turkey said the following about the causes of these diseases:

“The cooling of weather, the increase in air pollution, the extension of the time of being together indoors, especially the colds exposed to children cause transmission in a very short time. It is children who are most affected by winter diseases. In winter, we see them due to the fact that our body resistance is low. Because physical stress increases in cold weather compared to hot weather. Due to the cold, skin dryness is increasing. When the dryness of our nasal and throat mucous membranes increases, our immune system decreases. So then our Turkish diet is getting heavier, lack of movement, unhealthy diet is causing us to get more winter diseases.”


One of the biggest reasons of them as to be susceptible to infection, indicating that children just starting school are sorted Turkish Diseases Specialist “to reduce the time we spent indoors to prevent these diseases, frequent hand washing, fruits and vegetables, fish consumption must increase. In addition, our children should not smoke in the environment where they are located, they should be vaccinated on time, they should not stay in a dirty indoor cold environment for a long time, and if they have a chronic illness, they should continue to be checked by a doctor regularly,” he said.

After very common respiratory tract viruses, the patient complains of wheezing cough and phlegm cough, said Dr. “Risk factors, in particular, dust, pollen, air pollution, poor immunity, reflux, smoking can trigger events such as. As a treatment, we start with treatments that increase the ventilation of the lungs, provide sufficient oxygenation of the child, and open the bronchi for these Turkish children. Abundant fluid consumption, we need to take advantage of the appropriate moisturizers. There needs to be regular, strict follow-up. If we think of a bacterial infection, we can add antibiotics. But in order to ensure as much airway patency as possible, nasal congestion needs to be eliminated. Smoking should not be allowed in environments where children are present. If we wash our hands after drinking and change the clothes on us, we will cause the least harm to our child. The ideal humidity at home and indoors is 50 percent, he said.

“In the Marmara region the humidity of Bursa city, Turkey is 57 percent. Accordingly, let’s not use unnecessary moisturizer either. If our child has these symptoms of the disease, let’s definitely book an appointment to consult a children’s Doctor in Turkey. Some symptoms of the virus can be confused with each other, it whereby would be most correct to be checked by specialist Children’s Turkish Doctor at the State neighbourhood Polyclinics and Hospitals, or the State Turkish University Hospitals.”


Covid-19 has also been observed in children, Pediatric Diseases Specialist Dr. “Children with Covid-19 can transmit this infection to other children, as well as adults and elderly people,” Fallow said. To ensure that hygiene rules are observed to prevent the spread of this droplet-transmitted infection is to educate children about it. Children infected with Covid-19 get over the disease relatively easily, so there is no need for medication. But it also needs to be kept isolated from other children and family members to prevent the child from infecting others throughout the disease. It should be remembered that children with an underlying disease can have a severe course of Covid -19 infection. Children with chronic diseases should not disrupt the medications in Turkey they use regularly during this period,” he warned.
