Helpful tips for child's cold
I recently learned something very intresting.Maybe all of you already know this,but I thought I'd share the knowledge.
Everytime my daughter got a cold,of course she was miserable.I always reached for cold medicine like dimatapp or simply stuffy.
Then,in a few weeks,she'd get a sinus infection.
I finally am told that anything with antihistamine can actually block nasal passages and let bacteria start to grow,there by causing an infection.(the doctor in the ER gave me this info)
He says to use NOSE SPRAY which allows the nasal passages to clear and the fluid to drain so an infection doesnt occur.This paper I have says to not use antihistamine's at all if you are prone to sinus problems.
Just something to chew on since I always thought I was helping my daughter by giving her that stuff and have been the one causing the darned infections!!!
Would you know since we followed this advice,not one single sinus infection?
Since it's cold/flu season,thought you might like to know.
