SEASONAL HEALTH TIPS
- It's not too late for a flu vaccine! Flu season runs through March or April. Influenza is a serious and sometimes fatal disease. We recommend a flu vaccine for all children and for family members of babies less than 6 months old.
- Prevent spread of germs: Wash hands frequently and teach your children to avoid touching their eyes, nose and mouth. Cough into your sleeve or elbow and use tissues.
- Travel with Kids: If traveling by plane, arrive early at the airport; bring items you may need on board in diaper bag (food, formula, medicines including acetaminophen or ibuprofen, toys, diapers, change of clothing); use your child's car seat or booster seat in plane and when traveling by car or taxi. See the CDC travel page (www.cdc.gov) for tips on international travel with children.
- Carbon Monoxide poisoning: This odorless, colorless gas is produced from car exhaust, small gasoline engines, stoves, charcoal or wood, and gas heaters, and can be fatal. Symptoms include headache, dizziness, weakness, nausea, vomiting, and confusion. Have your gas/coal/oil burning heaters and appliances serviced yearly. Never use portable gas camp stoves, charcoal grills or heaters, or generators indoors. Install carbon monoxide detectors in your home.
- Toy Safety: Toys can be choking and poisoning hazards. Some toys may have paint containing lead, cadmium or other heavy metals which are poisonous to children. Check the CPSC website (www.cpsc.gov) for toys that have been taken off the market. Don't let your children mouth toys that are painted. Remember that toys labeled "decorative" have not been tested for safe use by children.
- Frostbite: Any skin surface exposed to cold temperatures can develop itchy, painful red white or yellow patches of tissue damage. To prevent frostbite, wear appropriate clothing and shoes; treat by wrapping inblankets, moving to a warm area, immobilizing the area by wrapping or splinting, and seeking medical attention.
