- in the presence of wrinkles, diverticula in the channel, in the pin hole of the lacrimal sac and there are "temporary difficulties" for the outflow of tear fluid;
- sometimes cause stagnation is cork, which consists of embryonic mucus and dead cells.Typically, shortly after the spontaneous breathing baby, cork spontaneously ejected.If there is a delay, the inflammation can occur;
- rudimentary film covering the outlet duct can also be the cause of dacryocystitis.
dacryocystitis of newborns What are the symptoms?

Treatment of children with dacryocystitis
In order to choose the best method of treatment, it is necessary to take into account the individual characteristics of the structure of the nasal cavity: no great height, folded mucous, frequent curvature of the nasal septum, inferior turbinate thick, often overlapping the lower nasal passage.
Massage projection lacrimal sac: tremors finger from top to bottom.This is done to create a change in pressure and pulsation, which promotes the removal of the film, or gelatinous outlet tube.It must be remembered that the gelatinous tube with age, becoming denser and massage brings fewer benefits.
Massage is useful only when in the lacrimal sac accumulates excessive pressure - and it is happening during a violent weeping.Therefore, we must adapt to this situation, and to develop precise work skill finger, not to injure the child's eyes.In addition, you need to very carefully handle the delicate structures of the facial skull kid, not to cause injury.

During treatment, it is advisable not to use sulfatsil sodium chloride (Albucidum), as it can form microscopic crystals clogging the tear outflow path zhidkosti.V if the massage does not give result in an outpatient setting ENT Cabinet (or ophthalmology)nasolacrimal duct intubation is performed.This small operation aims passage nasolacrimal duct special probe, mechanical removal of obstructions and followed by washing with antibacterial treatment.
effectiveness of this simple operation is more than 90%.For high efficiency it is necessary to perform intervention before the age of 9 months, preferably in 3-5 month vozraste.Posle this manipulation is recommended for two weeks instilled drops antibacterial baby complex also containing decongestants substance into the nasal passages.
treat this pathology is best before the age of one year, as older children already performed dacryocystorhinostomy - a more serious surgery.
lacrimal massage parents should teach or pediatric health visitor or pediatrician, ophthalmologist, otolaryngologist or a child.Appoint antibiotics and must choose the drops is also a doctor, and treatment should be under the supervision of specialists, as purulent process of any nature in the head and neck region is fraught with complications of delayed treatment.
