There are no more effective ways to prevent acute respiratory viral infections than careful hygiene, regular irrigation of the nose with saline, constant ventilation of the room while maintaining normal conditions (humidity 40-50%, air temperature not higher than 22 degrees) and, of course, modern immunization to protect against influenza.
Do nasal sprays or ointments help?
To date, there are no high-quality studies that would show the effectiveness and safety of disinfectant sprays for the nose and mouth as a prevention of SARS. This, by the way, is natural: any substance is quickly washed off by saliva, its concentration cannot be physically supported.

According to statistics, children under 4 years old are often considered sick if they get sick more than 3-4 times a year. At the age of 4 to 7 years they need to be ill more than 3 times a year in order to fall into this category. If a child is sick less than 3 times, he can be considered an ordinary child.

What if a childhood illness is a call for parental love?
If the child is sick, this is a signal that something is wrong in your relationship. Review your relationship with him. Try not to be near the child, but with him. Maintain in him the value of his personality.

Try to ensure that, being healthy, the child receives the same amount of love, warmth, attention and care from you as when the child is sick. And then he will not need the disease. Continue reading
