Why is the old man drooling? Or a sign of cerebral infarction

Gerocomia 08-04

1. Inflammation of the oral cavity: the irritation caused by local lesions in the oral cavity of the elderly, such as pharyngitis, glossitis, stomatitis, gingivitis, salivitis, may also be irritation of dentures or early tumors in the oral cavity. This type of inflammation promotes saliva secretion, causes pain and drooling, and disappears on its own after treatment.

The doctor suggested that you might as well put sugar or dates in your mouth to solve the problem within one month after putting on the dentures. After containing, the oral cavity increases the swallowing action, which can eliminate excessive saliva in the mouth, and allows the oral cavity to gradually adapt to the presence of dentures. If it is other oral lesions, you should go to the hospital.

2. Precursor of cerebral infarction: The elderly drooling is always to one side, or the signs of blood clots appear in the brain. After the formation of cerebral thrombosis, local muscle function in the pharyngeal cavity will be uncoordinated, and swallowing dysfunction will occur, as well as slurred speech, unilateral limb discomfort, and unresponsiveness.

The doctor recommends: Go to the hospital to check head CT, vascular ultrasound, electrocardiogram, etc. to determine whether there is brain disease, and timely treatment to improve circulation and vascularization can eliminate symptoms. If the treatment is not timely, it may cause paralysis!

3. Facial paralysis: also known as facial neuritis, fatigue, cold, cold and other factors cause vasospasm of the facial nutrient nerves, leading to nerve tissue ischemia, edema and facial paralysis. The forehead lines on one side disappeared, the eyelids could not be closed, the cheeks could not be swollen, and the whistle could not be blown, resulting in drooling on one side.

The doctor recommends: After the facial paralysis-related symptoms appear, you should go to the hospital for a clear diagnosis, and the timely treatment within one week can be cured within three months of onset. The treatment methods of facial paralysis are different at different stages. Usually pay attention to keep warm, maintain a good sleep and maintain a good mood.

4. Overuse of the brain: If the elderly overuse the brain for a long time or take certain drugs, it will cause neurological disorders, so that the parasympathetic nerves are abnormally excited when sleeping, and the brain will send out wrong signals.

The doctor recommends: This kind of drooling solution is very simple, take more rest or stop suspicious drugs, avoid overeating, eat more barley , yam , lentils , lotus seeds , jujube, shiitake mushrooms, etc.

5. Natural physiological aging: Old people are older, and their own physiological functions are naturally not as good as those of young people. Pharyngeal muscles and facial muscles gradually relax, atrophy, and lose tension. Naturally, saliva will flow out unruly.

The doctor recommends: Do n’t be nervous if it only appears occasionally, if it is new and worsening, and is accompanied by other uncomfortable symptoms, go to the hospital for a clear examination.
