This article discusses some tips to keep your child safe and healthy this spring, including:
- Avoiding and Treating Spring Allergies, which can cause your child to have a lot of sneezing, plus a clear runny or stuffy nose, itchy and watery eyes and a cough, especially when he has spent a lot of time outside.
- Water Safety to protect your children when they are swimming or boating. Most importantly, always supervise your children around the water.
- Sun Safety to prevent damage from too much exposure to the sun. Regular use of sunscreen in children can lower their risk of skin cancer by almost 78%. But remember that sunscreen only works if you use it correctly and it does not substitute for limiting too much sun exposure. Many parents make the mistake of using sunscreen and then allowing unlimited sun exposure.
- Using Insect Repellents Safely to prevent bites from mosquitoes, etc. which can make your child miserable.
Help your child enjoy Spring by following the basic health and safety tips that are described in the rest of this article.
