When your kids come down with the common cold, fever, or flu, you want to do whatever you can to make them feel better. But what home remedies are safe? Should you give them Tylenol or Ibuprofen? Some studies say that their pediatrician should be consulted first before administering anything. To help you decide on what to do, this article will examine some popular at-home remedies for colds.
Many people are familiar with the common cold, but little do they know that no two different colds are really alike. There are many different types of colds, which can range from mild to severe. The most common symptom is a runny nose, which is commonly accompanied by sore throat and cough. Other symptoms include sneezing, nasal congestion, itchy or watery eyes, fatigue, feverishness, and general discomfort.
In today's environment, it becomes even harder to distinguish a common cold, fever, or flu from that of the symptoms of CoVid infection. Here are some of the guidelines you can look at.
A common cold can be a really unpleasant experience for many people, especially with children. You stay in bed resting the whole day, yet your body would still feel weak during onset, which may last for up to 10 days.
It is hard for children to speak up about what or how they feel when they are suffering from colds, fever, and flu. Having them take medications may also be a real challenge for parents especially when they feel nauseous. Feeding your children at this state may also be difficult because of their suppressed appetite.
Colds and the flu are some of the most common misfortunes that befall children and adults alike. With so many people in the house, it's easy for sickness to spread. With kids, it is especially important to be vigilant with your child's sleep environment, with extra care for those who are ill with a cold or flu. Sleep is important for children as well as adults, and studies have demonstrated that a good night's rest is essential for the body's repair and recovery processes.
Every year, children get sick with colds, fever, and flu. These are all contagious diseases that can be difficult to manage for both parents and children. One way to make the environment more conducive to sleep for these little ones is through noise or music. Noise can help mask sounds or vibrations that may bother your child, while some studies show that music can promote relaxation. White noise machines are inexpensive and easy to use for this purpose.
There are many ways to soothe a sick child, but none can be as relaxing as a white noise machine. With the ability to block out any unpleasant noises, these machines create sound waves that calm and lull them back to sleep. In addition, they have been scientifically proven to help reduce stress levels in adults that study near them.
It's time to start preparing for the cold and flu season. Prevention is key to avoiding getting sick this winter. The following 10 home remedies can help your children to combat colds and flu.
1. Get plenty of rest - kids should sleep as much as possible when they're feeling under the weather, preferably in bed with a cool compress on their forehead and eucalyptus oil (or tea tree oil) vaporized in the room.
2. Stick to a normal sleep schedule - when your body is tired and you're not sleeping enough, you're more likely to catch a cold or other viruses.
3. Keep a healthy diet - consume lots of water and easy-to-digest foods to keep your body strong and immune.
4. Get plenty of vitamin C - this important vitamin helps the body produce white blood cells to fight infections.
5. Skip the ice cream - cold creams, syrups and other ice-cold products full of artificial ingredients and sugar can actually do more harm than good.
6. Drink lots of tea - eucalyptus oil in tea tree is a natural mild antibacterial and antiseptic.
7. Sleep with the windows open - the fresh air will keep you feeling healthy, especially if you've been spending too much time indoors.
8. Keep your pets away - The flu is contagious for up to one week even after the symptoms have passed. If you have animals, you should take extra precautions to prevent the flu from spreading.
9. Learn the signs- flu symptoms include fever, chills, cough, sore throat with pinkish spit, and muscle aches. Unfortunately, some flu symptoms can be mistaken for other conditions.
10. Stay home - If you are feeling sick, you should stay home. This will prevent the spread of illness and help you recover quickly.
Check your child's environment for high levels of dust, mold, and mildew which can all harbor harmful viruses that cause these diseases. Mold and Mildew can be found in many places including your child's bedroom and bathroom, so it is very important to regularly disinfect the areas where your child loves to stay long.
Bundle up your children in multiple layers of clothing when they're outside or go outside with them during winter and cold seasons. Get ready with weather-appropriate clothing for your children to make them feel comfortable without compromising their ability to move around with ease.
Keep your child away from other sick children. Colds, fever, and flu are contagious and children can easily get infected with the virus that causes it.
At this time, we want to be more vigilant and careful with our kid's health and wellness. As the old adage says "Prevention is always better than cure".
