It’s very important that you take preventive measures when the flu season starts if you want to help your kid not to get sick. These illnesses are the ones you must take care of the most as they are the most common illnesses that your kid can pick up in school.


This is one of the most common diseases and we kind of get used to it, but don’t underestimate it because the flu can be very dangerous if not treated right. Get your kid vaccinated on time and you will greatly reduce the risk of your child getting sick from an influenza virus.


Colds are also known as rhinoviruses, which are tiny infectious organisms that can live on surfaces for hours. These microorganisms tend to enter the lining of the nose and throat and then multiply and grow. Make sure your child washes its hands properly often.
