What should I do if my baby has a big tongue and cannot speak clearly?

Question 1: A baby aged 2 years and 2 months has a short tongue tie and can only speak simple words, such as mom and dad. Sometimes he cannot speak clearly. Does the tongue tie need to be cut? Dr. Luo Zhen’s answer: If the baby’s tongue tie is short, the tip of the tongue will appear in a W shape when it is extended, which means the tip of the tongue is indented. Judging from the picture of the baby, as long as it does not affect feeding and feeding, and the pronunciation is mostly clear, just take it slow and do not need to deal with it. If most of the speech is unclear, surgical treatment is required. The surgery is also simple. Just cut a small opening in the tongue tie. Question 2: My child is three and a half years old. He started having stomach pain at about 11 o\’clock last night and lasted until about 4 o\’clock in the morning. Today, he went for a B-ultrasound examination and it was said that the mesenteric lymph node was swollen 12×5. It happened once in the first half of this year, and I didn\’t go for a check-up after taking the medicine. This situation happened again this time. Does the doctor have any solution to this problem? The child does not have constipation or diarrhea. Dr. Cui Lixia answered: There is no special cure for swollen lymph nodes, and the effect of antibiotics is not obvious. Be careful not to eat cold, dry or spicy food. It is not recommended to take medicine as it usually recovers on its own. Question 3: I had a medical abortion before. Today’s B-ultrasound review said it was not clean. The doctor recommended a uterine evacuation. If I don’t want to have a uterine evacuation, is it okay to take medicine? Is there any other solution? Dr. Pan Guilan answered: If there is no discharge within a week after taking the medicine, it means that it is stuck to the endometrium and requires curettage to remove it. The drug is not conducive to excretion, and the residue remains for a long time, which makes it susceptible to infection, affects future pregnancy, and can also affect uterine contractions and heavy bleeding. It is recommended to have uterine evacuation, and there is no other way.
