Many mothers confess to us that they are already tired that as soon as they take their children to kindergarten, nursery school or nursery school, they start to have colds, colds, and flu. What's more, they are infected with all possible viruses.
I understand them perfectly because the same thing happened to us when our daughter, when she was little, started going to daycare. From contact with other children, he not only got viruses, but also brought them home and to us. What can be done to avoid that?
Half of the children who go to daycare, as well as a third of the preschool and those who go to school, are victims of the flu. For this reason the Spanish Association of Pediatrics (AEP) advises parents to get their children over six months of age vaccinated against the flu, at least until they are five years old. Nurseries as well as schools are a source of contagion. It is enough that one catches the flu so that the others also get it.
In kindergarten it is not only flu that children get sick. They can also catch conjunctivitis, otitis, gastroenteritis, and other diseases like chickenpox, measles, apart from some skin problems. Among viruses, the flu virus is usually the most contagious. Among bacteria, group A beta hemolytic streptococcus and pneumococcus are the most common. And among parasites, lice are the most contagious in children.
And what can be done to prevent children from catching everything in the nursery? Well, in the first place, the vaccination of children for the diseases for which there is a vaccine must be encouraged. Vaccines against influenza, chickenpox, rubella, mumps, measles, and hepatitis A and B. Second, that both daycare staff and parents monitor the health and hygiene of children, and take precautions when they detect that a child he is sick. It is important that there is strict hygiene and that children receive medical care in the nursery. There are diseases, such as chicken pox, measles and conjunctivitis, for example, in which the child must stop going to daycare, until the contagion period passes.
