How to protect your child from the flu

Seasonal colds, influenza and SARS is not long to wait. Every now and then you hear one friend came down with a fever, the other went to the hospital. If for himself, as usual, is not very worried, trusting in the "maybe", then for the child is always scary. After all, there's nothing worse extinct eye kid who does not want to play or laugh.

Fear is really worth. After all, if an adult is more or less stable immunity, the body flanked by an immature child is still hard to resist diseases, including acute respiratory infections, including influenza — the most dangerous to the symptoms and consequences.

Fever, chills, headache, aching muscles and joints, as well as emerging in severe cases, photophobia, dizziness, mental confusion and even delirium — signs of flu. Symptoms of the disease are developed very quickly, often at lightning speed. The temperature to 39-40 degrees can jump in just a few hours. By the second day of the disease appears a small nasal congestion and a dry cough. Redness of the eye — is also a frequent symptom.

The agents of influenza viruses are of three types: A, B, and C. They are highly variable, and each year they usually appear new species causing the epidemic. Adults, for his life more than once bolevshie flu, and are less susceptible to new varieties. However, children have become a target for this disease. Therefore, in kindergartens and schools, where, among other things, the students close contact with each other, one child sick enough to illness struck down most of the children.

Serious complications of the flu is dangerous. Sinusitis, otitis media, acute bronchitis, chronic tonsillitis, pneumonia — the most frequent consequences of influenza. In turn, acute otitis media can lead to meningitis, brain abscess, sinusitis and inflammation can develop into orbit and intracranial complications.

A reasonable question arises: is it possible to protect the child from getting sick? Doctors are looking for an answer ever since opened the flu, and all agree on one thing: prevention is better than cure. 


1. The first mention of the flu can be found in Hippocrates. Epidemic influenza mentioned in medieval literature, linking them to the influence of the frequency of the moon and other planets.

2. High body temperature contributes to the death of the influenza virus (temperature up to 38.5 degrees Celsius should not be reduced with medication)

3. Failure to improve child well-being after the fall of the temperature should be cause for concern

4. When a child is worried, and he yells blushing face, it's less dangerous than his pallor and silence

5. Wash with brine helps relieve nasal congestion and to remove viruses and bacteria from the surface of the mucosa.

Currently, the main method of prevention is active immunization — that is, vaccination or specific prevention. At the time of the vaccination is introduced weakened or killed infectious agent or a part thereof, which stimulates the body to make antibodies. So, when the body gets "wild" strain of his "encounter" ready-made antibodies. Communicating with the virus, they would prevent infection of cells and virus replication.

However, many parents are to be vaccinated with apprehension. First of all, everyone knows that influenza viruses mutate constantly. Of course, the experts of the World Health Organization are conducting research and observation in this direction, but a 100-percent guarantee no one can not give. Simply put, you are planting a child from one type of virus, and before the other, he is defenseless.

However, to date vaccination — one of the most effective means of protection, and in 70-90% of cases, owing to it is possible to avoid

developing the disease.

In addition to specific prevention, there is another way to protect against SARS and influenza: non-specific prevention. Non-specific prevention is aimed at strengthening the body's own defenses and can be done in parallel vaccination. As a nonspecific defense used cough medicines that significantly reduce the risk of disease.

French Oscillococcinum Homeopathic medicine is used not only for treatment but also for the prevention of influenza and SARS. We Oscillococcinum virtually no contraindications and side effects. Studies conducted in Russia showed that during the prophylactic administration of the drug incidence of viral respiratory infections in children is reduced by half. Oscillococcinum can be used in children of any age, is not addictive. Use may be in the long term.

From prevention to You can give your child a dose of pellets to 1 1 times a week, a rise in the incidence of SARS, influenza. For children under 6 years of age can dissolve the contents of one tube (1 dose granules) in a little water and give with a spoon or with the bottle with the teat.

Oscillococcinum can be taken for treatment. The dosage depends on the stage of the disease and does not depend on the patient's age.

In the initial stage of the disease as early as possible to take one dose, then if necessary, repeated 2-3 times at intervals of 6 hours.

At the height of the disease— 1 dose of pellets in the morning and evening for 1-3 days.
