Re: 3rd hand smoke?
My son has multiple medical problems. Our GI gave us a ton of information on 3rd hand smoke. We were ordered that anyone who had smoked must shower and put on fresh clothes before coming near DS.
It can cause reflux to worsen in kiddos. The fumes cause the stomach to relax, which allows kiddo to reflux more. It also aggravates asthma. But GI's primary concern is what it does to the stomach, and how it makes a kid who already refluxes have bigger problems. Smoking outside isn't good enough. The person has to shower and change.
