Your Little One is Prone to Infections- Know What Not To Do

Your little one is susceptible to infections and illnesses as her immune system is still under construction. As a new parent, it is natural for you to feel anxious and readily reach for medicines. Give them a second thought as they may create more harm than good.

What you need to know

Children aged six months and above are vulnerable to food allergies and their resulting infections. Similarly, some diseases are inescapable, such as common cold. Ask yourself if she really needs an antibiotic? Some conditions get better with a change in diet and routine.

Your Little One is Prone to Infections- Know What Not To Do

You need to know that regular use of an antibiotic will never bring down her common cold; it will only deplete her immune resources and render her too weak to fight other more dangerous diseases in the future. Excessive usage, misuse can lead to diaper rashes, diarrhoea, and inflamed gastric lining.

There are certain conditions which will only get better with antibiotics, such as a nagging ear infection, urinary tract infection, bacterial skin infection, and viral infections; consult your doctor and never self medicate.
