Keep Kids Feeling Well This Summer With Pfizer

After school got out, my son was excited to go to a REDS Baseball camp where he would play baseball, meet some Reds players and learn some new techniques. Well a week into it, he started complaining about a sore throat. We didn’t think much about it as he was outside in the heat during the morning then running in and out of the house the rest of the day. So we figured the change in temperature was irritating him. We gave him some Children’s Advil and sent him off to play.

Sicko With Strep!

Then on the third day of camp during the second week, he was just wiped out, slept all day and was still complaining of a sore throat. We gave him more medicine, which made him seem better. But I held him from camp just to be on the safe side. Well, Monday rolled around and off to the doctor we went. To my surprise, he had strep throat and antibiotics were needed! No one in the family was sick so he had to pick it up at camp.

I felt so bad, other than a sore throat and the day he was down and out, he didn’t have any symptoms. Poor kid! So, even though it is summer, kids can still pick up germs from summer camps!

Here are a few tips to help Stay Healthy During the Summer:

  • Stay Hydrated: Make sure to pack a water bottle
  • Sun Protection: Apply before leaving and pack sunscreen. The camp leaders should help reapply during the day for protection
  • Got a Fever: Fever free for 24 hours is the rule before sending them back
  • Ticks: Ticks are bad this season, make sure to check them when they come home
  • Poison Ivy: Leaves of three let it be! Make sure kids know what it looks like
  • Hand Washing: This may be hard at some outdoor camps, but teach kids that they should be singing the birthday song twice
  • Sleep: Make sure kids get enough sleep to help their immune system. Doctors recommend 10-12 hours of sleep a day for children ages 5-12 and 7-8 hours per night for adults

    Summer is usually the time we experience upset stomach or sunburn. I always have aloe vera or cortisone to treat skin problems.

    My tip is to make sure kids wash their hands regularly and get outside as much as possible in the summer. They are more likely to get sick when they are confined indoors with other kids who are sick.

    When we are traveling I always like to have some children’s meds with me for they always get sick. I am not sure what plans I have for traveling this summer but enjoying summer at home with walks and playing in the park.

    Everyone has to wash their hands, as often as possible, especially before eating! I have a similar (but somewhat worse story) about my daughter. She was in day camp, and came home complaining of a slight sore throat, nothing major. She didn’t have any fever at all. So we let it go, even though she said her throat was bothering her for a few days, I thought it was from allergies. Well, after the 4th day or so, she broke out with a rash all over! We took her to the doctor, and not only was it strep, but it turned into SCARLET FEVER because she hadn’t had any anitbiotics. OMG! All I could think of was how Beth died from Scarlet Fever in “Little Women”. After THAT experience, I took her to the doctor for every and any pimple or sneeze, immediately!

    I always had a rule that the kids had to wash their hands as soon as they came inside from playing outdoors.

    Keep you kids healthy during the summer by getting them involved in physical activities. Archery, ballet, soccer, you name it, there’s probably a camp for it. Children need 60 minutes of exercise per day, so registering them for an activity that they are interested in helps them not only reach this goal, but also teaches them lifelong skills like teamwork, and helps keep them on a schedule.

    My kids are grown now. But I always made them wash their hands and drink lots of water.

    First, it is important to keep the kids hydrated especially in this heat. I have them drink lots of water and eat popsicles. Next, I make sure they have on sunscreen when playing outside. I live in the south and the heat is horrible at this time of year. They enjoy swimming which is a great way to stay cool.
