Your Child's Immunity is Blooming- But What's The Catch?

At this stage, with everything else, your child's immunity too is strengthening with time. However, that doesn't mean that his tiny body is still resilient to common cold and flu. He is still quite prone to such health hiccups.

Is your child sneezing, coughing, and having a sore throat? Don't panic. You need to find out how to keep those cold symptoms in check and prevent your kid from getting sick the next time. 

Your Child's Immunity is Blooming- But What's The Catch?

What you need to know

When your child gets a cold, it starts when he has a general feeling of not being well, often followed by a sore throat. At the beginning, the sore throat is due to a build-up of mucus. Later, your child may get a postnasal drip, when the mucus runs down the back of their nose to the throat. A cold virus can affect your child's sinuses, throat, bronchial tubes, and ears. Your child may also have diarrhoea and vomiting.

When you need to call the Doctor?

Talk to the pediatrician if your child doesn't get better after a few days and has symptoms like high fever, vomiting, chills and shakes, a hacking cough, or extreme fatigue. These may be signs of something more severe like the flu. If your child has asthma, diabetes, or any other long-term health conditions, call your pediatrician to talk about medicines or other treatments.
