after using the bathroom and touching high-use facilities such as
cafeteria tables, doorknobs and playground equipment. Pack hand
sanitizers in your children's backpacks so they can use them at school.
-- Cover your nose and mouth when you sneeze and cough to avoid spreading
viruses through the air. Ideally, use a tissue. If a tissue isn't
available, sneeze into the elbow of your sleeve, not your hand, or turn
your head away from people near you.
-- Stay home. The average child catches five to eight colds every year,
largely because cold germs spread so easily through schools and day
cares. Consider keeping a sick child home from school during the most
contagious stage of the disease to avoid infecting others.
"If, or should I say 'when,' your child does catch a cold, one of the simplest, safest treatments to use is a saline nasal spray like OCEAN(R)," Dr. Haller recommends.
"The OCEAN(R) line of products is a safe, non-medicated way to moisturize dry nasal passages. Ocean(R) Nasal Spray, Ocean(R) for Kids, and Ocean(R) Gel can be used as often as needed," adds Phill Dritsas, president of Fleming Pharamceuticals. "They are specially formulated and can be used for newborns and children. Unlike prescription and over-the-counter cold medicines, there are no known side effects when used as directed."
The ingredients in OCEAN(R) products provide young cold sufferers with instant soothing relief to irritated nasal passages. The OCEAN(R) non-medicated line of products is available at most drugstores, including Brooks/Eckerd Drugs, CVS, Longs Drugs, Pathmark, Rite-Aid, Safeway and Walgreens.
