What type of safe guards can you set up to protect your family?
- This is the time to review or teach your children that hands are germ factories.
- Tell them to cough or sneeze in the crook of their arm.
- Wash hands after coughing, sneezing, shaking hands,etc.
- Wash hand before cooking and eating.
- Wash hands before leaving the bathroom
- Do not pick your nose! Germs from your fingers will go in your nose. You will then breath in the germs!
- Do not share drinks with anyone.
- Brush teeth at least twice a day and floss.
- Use chapstick, lip balm, lip stick,etc to keep lips moist. Cracked lips are just asking germs to come on in!
- Do not put boogers in your mouth.
- Drink OJ, tea,etc. Keep hydrated.
- Eat healthy meals! Make your favorite soups.
When a cold comes on everyone wants to run to the Doctor. From what I know 99% of the time you do not need to go see your Doctor. Did you know that the waiting room to see your Doctor is a huge germ factory? If there is a fever then that is good sign. It shows that your body is working to attack what is foreign. You want to stay home with a fever. Best medicine for the onset of a cold is to let your body work to attack it and stay away from others. Get plenty of rest. Sometimes sleeping is difficult for our sick ones. Put a movie in and let them lay around and rest if they can't sleep.
