Myth 9. It is necessary to wipe the child with alcohol, if he has a temperature

  1. Myth 8. You need to apply hot water if your limbs are frozen.

    Myth 8. You need to apply hot water if your limbs
  3. Myth 5. Heat must be applied in tension, deformation and fracture.
    Heat gives the opposite effect to the desired - it provokes swelling and slows healing. With the right approach, you should apply ice wrapped in cloth or something else to prevent direct contact with the skin, alternating 10 minutes with ice and 10 minutes without it on the first day or
  4. Myth 6. Need to move a person caught in a car accident
    A person with a spinal cord injury may not look as if he was badly hurt, but if you try to pull him out of a vehicle or even just remove his helmet from an injured motorcyclist, this can lead to paralysis and even death. If there is no threat of a vehicle fire or other serious danger, it is best not to move the affected person and wait
  5. Myth 2. You need to put the butter in place of the burn
    Do you put butter or mayonnaise on a burn? If you apply butter or other types of fats to a burn site, then you increase the risk of infection, which will complicate the treatment of the burn later. It is best to slightly wash the burn with cool water. If the burn is on a sensitive part of the body, such as on the face or blisters appear, consult a doctor and do not squeeze
  6. Myth 1. You need to make an incision in the place of a snake bite
    The safest thing to do with a snake bite is to wrap the wound with something clean and go to the hospital immediately, says Christopher P. Holstege, MD, emergency medicine doctor and toxicology expert.

Most medical centers now use activated carbon that binds a toxic substance in the stomach and prevents it from entering the bloodstream. In any case, in case
  8. How do I deal with my spouse if he often has bouts of melancholy that reach panic?
    I am afraid that such a state of mind can seriously affect me. This situation affects you because it annoys you and because you refuse to understand the condition of your spouse. A person gets depressed when he has low self-esteem. You undoubtedly noticed that in moments of crisis the spouse complains of pain in the region of the heart. The heart shrinks and the body
  9. How to feed a baby from a cup?
    The child should be kept in a slightly raised position, and the cup should be kept near the lower lip (see Fig. 7). Premature babies lap up the milk like kittens. Full-term babies take a sip of milk. Do not pour milk into the child’s throat. Let the child always control slurping and swallowing. Figure 7.
  10. Myth number 2. I breastfeed a child - I can not lose weight
    I was breastfeeding Marusia, though not for very long. A nursing mother usually has a strict diet. You can not eat anything harmful - red, spicy, sweet, Chinese cuisine, food from fast food. If you honestly exclude all of this, cooking steamed vegetables and meat and cereal with milk, weight loss should occur naturally. But many fail. Why? It is believed that when a woman
