Treatment of neonatal dacryocystitis depends on the clinical picture and is carried out exclusively by an ophthalmologist in a specialized children's ophthalmological hospital.
It includes conservative therapy, in some cases in combination with surgical interventions.
Dacryocystitis of newborns is an inflammation of the lacrimal sac associated with impaired tear drainage. The main signs appear in the first days of a baby's life.
Symptoms: the child's eyes are constantly watering, purulent discharge appears. A common cause of neonatal dacryocystitis is a gelatinous plug, which closes the lumen of the nasolacrimal canal (it connects the eye and nose) and is normally absorbed by the birth of a child.
It is very important to start treatment as early as possible!
Methods of neonatal dacryocystitis treatment at Lege Artis:
Dacryocystitis of newborns is treated conservatively up to 3 months of age (massage of the lacrimal sac, instillation of disinfectant drops);
If lacrimation and discharge from the eyes persists against the background of the massage, the nasolacrimal canal is probed for babies older than 3 months. In the Lege Artis children's eye clinic, an experienced children's ophthalmic surgeon performs probing of children up to 6-8 months old without general anesthesia. The procedure is performed in a few minutes and is painless for the child.
I thought I had bacterial vaginosis, but now I already know for sure that I have thrush. Maybe someone is familiar with this trouble, tell me: how and what were they treated?
