Cómo afectan los resfriados al rendimiento de los más pequeños

What a winter we are having! Between colds, influenza A, COVID-19… we are constantly coughing, coughing, feverish and exhausted. And the little ones, with a half-developed defensive system, are the most affected.

Although these illnesses are not usually serious, they can affect children’s school performance, causing absences, concentration difficulties, irritability, and tiredness.

That is why Lanier Pharma, your trusted nutraceutical laboratory, is going to give you some effective advice to keep your little ones as healthy as possible.

Today, colds and related illnesses are the number one cause of school absenteeism

Colds are one of the most common ailments in children, and their impact on school performance and general well-being is increasingly significant.

Colds are often accompanied by fatigue and loss of energy, which can leave children feeling tired and unwilling to actively participate in school activities. This lack of energy can affect their ability to concentrate and assimilate information in class.

In addition, when the disease is highly contagious, as is often the case, the child should be isolated from other children, outside the school premises. The necessary measure to prevent the spread of viruses leads children to be absent from school, which disrupts their learning and socialization routine. This repeated absenteeism will significantly affect their academic progress and integration into the school environment.

How to get your child through a cold quickly and with fewer symptoms

Encourage rest

Rest is very important to help your child’s body fight illness. So make sure your little one gets plenty of rest. That means encouraging napping and a good night’s sleep.

Keep him well hydrated

Water facilitates nasal secretions, which is the fastest and most effective way for us to flush viruses out of the body. But these secretions cause us to lose a lot of fluids that need to be replenished immediately.

So insist that they drink enough to stay well hydrated. If your little patient is not a big fan of water, juices, flavored waters, and herbal teas can help keep his water levels up.

Spoil them with healthy, nutritious food

Perhaps the hardest task is getting them to eat well when they’re fussy and fussy with a cold. But try to reconcile their favorite snacks with foods full of valuable vitamins and nutrients that boost their immune system.

Take care of his nostrils

Give him nasal washes with saline or seawater. This helps to clear the nostrils and improve breathing.

Choose soft handkerchiefs to avoid irritating their delicate skin.

Avoid sudden changes in temperature and dry or smoky environments. These factors can worsen symptoms and delay recovery.

Be loving, patient, and understanding.

Providing emotional support to children during their illness is crucial. Not only does it improve their mood and emotional well-being, but it will also positively affect the course of their illness.

Ask your pediatrician for help

Consult your pediatrician if symptoms are severe or last for too many days. Also if there is a high fever, difficulty breathing, ear pain, or coughing up blood.

Do not medicate on your own

Give medication only when prescribed by a doctor. Antibiotics are not effective against viruses, and antihistamines, decongestants, or cough medicines may have unwanted side effects.
