Led by celebrity host and expert mom herself Rica Peralejo, the campaign which was launched today at Makati Shangri-La seeks to educate mothers on how to correctly and promptly address cough and allergies for the entire family
Summer is here to and everybody is on full vacation mode! But whether you are going to the beach, headed to an exciting overseas trip or just staying home for some bonding time with family and friends, remember that the scorching heat isn’t the only thing that we should worry about
The rise in temperature brings with it a variety of diseases and exposes us and our kids to a lot of environmental triggers that can ruin the fun in the sun.
Let’s tackle the most common sickness during summer time
Coughs and colds are quite common, it’s look so simple but the hassle that it can bring to our children is not easy. And cough can be easily transferred to another child with weakened immune systems. Cough caused by viral infections may result in fever, headache and pains
Transmission can happen when an individual makes direct contact with an infected individual, or even infected surfaces such as doorknobs, computer keyboard, and gadgets and then touching their noses and mouth
There are generally two kinds of cough: dry cough and productive cough (cough with phlegm)
For productive cough, pediatricians can recommend protussives such as Ambrolex (Ambroxol) to enable the cough to get rid of excess mucus in the airways.
Good thing about Ambrolex is the sweet blackcurrant flavor that kids will surely love. We would not have a hard time getting our kids drink this medicine and allowing our children get better, faster.
And the good news is, we can also give this to our husband who is suffering from cough as well, Ambrolex comes in thrice a day tablet and once a day capsule formats for adults and are both easy on the budget.
Another common problem of children during summer, having allergies is to have the body’s immune system overreact to foreign substances or even a change in the environment
Allergic reactions may also be triggered by allergens or substances that can be found in food such as peanuts, milk, eggs, seafood, etc. A lot of children also develop allergies to plants, pets, house dust mites, mold spores or medications especially antibiotics.
Of course, allergies are not limited to children-moms and their husband can develop allergies too. When allergy happens, use the antihistamine that is trusted for 20 years. Virlix (Cetirizine) . It contains cetirizine, an antihistamine that helps you manage the symptoms of your family’s allergies
