Is there such a thing as "way too clean?"
My little girl used to be sickly. If I remember right, I have once posted about her having "singaw" (mouth sores) all the time. That time and again she have it. Every after three weeks actually, and it's not the simple "singaw". It aggravates to the point of her not beiong able to eat and she have difficulty even drinking milk, depending on where it comes out (lip, tongue, cheek...or sometimes both). Her lip will get so swollen her face gets distorted and her saliva dripping out. A torute for her if I may say so.
Elders would say that I protect her too much for her to get the needed anit-bodies. Like giving her Wilkins only for her drinks, sterilizes or boils her bottles (up to present actually), washes her hands every so often and the likes. They exaggerate with their suggestion of letting her roll on the ground! What, next they would want her to eat soil?!
I just cannot believe it. I insist that it is hereditary. Rightfully so because her dad up to now have those episodes of having mouth sores. But then...I somehow went with their plea to "not be so clean"...and her mouth sores are not as frequent. Months even comes and goes with her having one (but right now she have it again!)
Still, I have second thoughts. Maybe she just really grew up and is out growing those sickliness times. I hope!
