Please consult with your primary care provider for all of your health care related needs, including Covid, Cold and Flu for and your children.

Prevention

Everything we’ve been doing for years to prevent covid, prevents all the other things too. Do your best to avoid getting sick in the first place.

  • Wear masks (and have your child wear a mask) when in high risk situations.
  • Wash hands often and well or use sanitizer
  • Cough into your elbow instead of your hands
  • Stay home or keep your child home when they are sick – especially in the first couple of days when things are most infectious.
  • Everyone should get a flu shot and keep their covid shots up-to-date

Symptoms of Upper Respiratory Tract Infections (URTI)

  • blocked or runny nose (mucous)
  • cough
  • fever
  • red eyes
  • reduced appetite
  • less energy than normal

Fevers

Fever usually starts at the beginning of the URTI and typically lasts for 3-5 days. If your child has a fever (more than 38°C (100.4°F) and is upset or in pain, you can give them ibuprofen (for children above 6 months)or acetaminophen. Make sure that you give the dose based on your child’s weight, not age.  

How much should I give? Medicines for fever and pain come in different concentrations (the number of mg of medicine in each mL, tablet or suppository). Check the concentration on the bottle, and read the package directions carefully. If you’re unsure, contact your pharmacist or primary care provider so they can help you.
