Keeping the Summer Germs at Bay

As a kid, there’s nothing more exciting than being out of school for the year and enjoying the summer time. As a parent, you want to make sure your kids stay healthy throughout the summer months. There’s a chance they’ll be exposed to new germs, even though it’s not cold and flu season, as they spend their break at camp or sleeping over at a friend’s home.

My son never got sick as an infant or toddler, but this all changed once he first started school. Seemingly, he picks up every germ possible! This often results in a domino-effect in the household, making us susceptible to everything from the cold and flu to strep and sinusitis. Needless to say, it is nearly impossible to keep the whole household healthy at times.

It’s normally worse during the cooler seasons, but the cold and flu are known to run amok in my household during the warmer seasons! Even though my family and I’ve been sick countless of times over the years, sick got real when my daughter, now 5, came down with an upper respiratory infection when she was just a few months old. She was far too young for medication, but she was put on a nebulizer to help treat it. I felt so scared and helpless, especially since this was my first time ever experiencing something this serious with one of my children!

Things like this can always happen we least expect it, so we should always be prepared for those Sick Just Got Real moments. That’s why it never hurts take some preventive measures like washing your hands often, relaxing, considering stress can make us more prone to illnesses; using an air purifier or aromatic diffuser (it cleanses the air by killing off airborne pathogens), being active, and getting a good night’s rest. It also helps to have products like Children’s Advil®, Children’s Robitussin®, Infants’ Advil®, and Children’s Dimetapp® on standby for our children.


Additionally, you can go to the Sick Just Got Real web-site for sick hacks. Plus, there’s a $3.50 coupon that you can print out!


One winner will receive a $25 virtual Visa gift card, Children’s Advil® Suspension (Grape), Children’s Robitussin ® Extended-Release 12 Hour Cough Relief, and Children’s Dimetapp® Multi-Symptom Cold Relief (Dye-Free).
