Odor from the navel in children
Odor from the navel in children - prettya common phenomenon, This is due to a number of diseases, but most often the fault of this fistula or cyst. They are formed with incomplete overgrowth of the urinary and bile ducts, but, as a rule, they are closed at an early age. In the case where these ducts are not overgrown, the umbilical cord may develop in the navel. Soon, mucus begins to form through it.
The fistulas are incomplete and complete. Incomplete fistula is more common. It manifests itself in the form of a slightly damped navel, but the skin around it is rather irritated. Fistulas from the inside lining the mucous membrane. It is its course and enables the specialist to make a preliminary diagnosis and prescribe appropriate treatment.
It happens that the umbilical wound does not heal for a long time, fromit goes mucous discharge. This is one of the symptoms of congenital navel disease. In this case, it is difficult to distinguish the fistula of the bile duct from the urinary fistula, because there are no characteristic, distinctive features. It is also difficult to recognize the incomplete fistula from the full, but to clarify the diagnosis, probing is performed, as well as the x-ray of the fistula. Complete fouling of the fistula is difficult to achieve in a conservative way, but it can be corrected with the help of surgical intervention. In this case, the excision of the fistula is performed and then the defects in the walls of the intestines and the bladder are sutured.
There are congenital umbilical fistulas thatdiffer from those acquired. Incorrectly applied ligature when tying the navel in newborn babies may be the cause of the formation of chronic umbilical fistulas. That's why some babies stink from the navel sometimes.
Natural healing of the umbilical ringnewborns do not always occur, especially in premature babies, which is why the smell from the navel appears. Especially often the upper half of the umbilical ring becomes inflamed in the abdominal wall. It is there that the umbilical vein passes, which is surrounded by loose fiber. And when these tissues and places are irritated, a rather unpleasant odor from the navel of children begins to be released.
When a child begins to cry,tension of the abdominal muscles. This leads to a prolapse of the intestinal wall (i.e., the secret is secreted under the influence of intra-abdominal pressure). That's why the smell comes from the navel of the child.
After the umbilical cord disappears, and the ligatedthe site of the intestinal wall becomes dead, the intestinal fistula begins to develop, from which an unpleasant spirit begins to emanate. There are cases when a vermiform appendage enters the ligature and this too can be the reason why the navel stinks. And when the fistula formed in this way becomes chronic, it adversely affects the overall well-being of the child.
The smell from the navel of children appears and in that case,when umbilical fistulas are formed as a result of intraperitoneal inflammations. It will be especially strong when forming an abscess. When it is opened, the purulent discharge goes out, and an unpleasant odor from the navel appears. Thus, umbilical fistulas of the urinary, gallbladder, small and large intestine, and even the stomach, may also arise.
After the birth of the baby, the navel during healingthe location of the cord cutoff becomes the most vulnerable place. Therefore, during the first two years of a baby's life, each mother must follow the process of healing the navel and prevent its inflammation, much less the formation of a fistula and the appearance of an odor. In order to prevent painful phenomena in this place, parents should know what changes may occur in the navel of the child during this period. In case of a fistula, cysts or the appearance of odors, you should always consult a doctor.
