Children’s Illness: When Is a Cold More Than a Cold?

Children’s illness is something every parent experience at some point in their life.

When your child is under the weather, it can be tempting to skip going to the doctor.

Children’s Illness

Children’s Illness

 

And just let them stay home from school and try to treat it at home.

In general, this approach is a good one, but it’s important to note that.

More than 700 health conditions present like a cold to start with.

Some of them are mild, while others can be life-threatening.

The following are signs that you should investigate your children’s illness sooner, not later.

Fever – This is a sign the body is dealing with something big, such as bacteria and viruses.

Flu is the most common cause, but if the fever is very high, call a doctor or go to an emergency room.

Severe Headache – Headaches so intense they leave your child in tears.

Or cause problems with concentration or ability to think clearly should be checked out at an ER.

It could be meningitis, which can attack and even kill within hours of exposure.

Extreme Aches and Tiredness – If they are so achy and weak that they can barely get out of bed, it’s time to seek medical help.

It might be just flu, of course, in which case they can get treated with an antiviral like Tamiflu (which can cut symptoms by several days) rather than trying to ride it out.

It can also prevent complications from flu, such as lung problems.

Vomiting – This is the body’s way of rejecting various germs. Vomiting in children is cause for concern due to how easily they can get dehydrated.

An Irregular Heart Beat – We all have this from time to time, but in children, it could be a sign of dehydration, or a virus that’s attacking the heart.

A Cough That Lasts Longer Than Ten Days – This is always suspicious, especially if your child has been taking cough medicine.

Pain or a Feeling of Pressure in the Chest – This could be a sign that a cold or flu has worsened to affect the lungs.

Shortness of Breath – This is also a sign that the cold has started to affect the lungs in some way.

No Relief of Symptoms Despite Taking Medicine – This could be a sign of more than cold or flu.

Worsening Symptoms, Especially a Sudden Change – If you’ve been treating your child with over-the-counter or prescription medications.

But there is no improvement, or they start to get worse or experience a sudden, rapid decline, take them to the ER.

Pain in the Forehead or under the Eyes – This could be a sign of sinus infection.

Pain in the Ears, Dizziness – These could be signs of ear infection.

Changes Related to any Chronic Condition – If your child has Type 1 diabetes, asthma, kidney problems.

Or any other long-term medical condition, keep an eye out for any changes.

These could become very severe quite quickly, even with just a common cold.

Sudden Vomiting, Listlessness and/or Untypical Aggressive Behavior – This could be a sign of Reye’s Syndrome.

It is a two-phase illness almost always linked to a previous viral infection such the flu, a cold, or the chicken pox.

It is associated with taking aspirin.

It can be misdiagnosed as encephalitis, meningitis, diabetes or some form of poisoning.

Always use over-the-counter medications with care exactly as directed on the label.

Keep a watchful eye just in case that “cold” is something more, and you will be better able to keep your family safe.

 

Fitness Boot-camp Can Kick-Start Your Weight Loss

Fitness Boot-camp is a good way to motivate yourself to start a weight loss program.

After long winter hibernation, it is hard to get back into the swing of fitness.

We want that swimsuit body for summer but how do we get motivated to get it together?

Your answer may be a military-style workout.

As you gear up to get going with your fitness and weight loss program, it can be slow going.

You have to find the time to work out.

Then you have to choose an exercise that you enjoy.

But will also give you the results you want.

Once you get that far, then it is all about reaching a certain level of intensity.

That will help you start losing that fat.

This is just the exercise portion.

Let’s not even get started on the healthy eating side of it.

If you’ve ever been in a gym in January and February.

It is packed with people with good intentions and fitness goals in their heads.

By March, the numbers start to thin out a bit. Why?

There are several reasons:

  • Very little to no results
  • Lack of motivation (boredom)
  • Choosing an exercise regimen (discipline)

 

Working out by yourself, this becomes the pitfall you may encounter.

There is a solution to the problem, though. It is called boot-camp.

Just like the name sounds, it has a strict military feel.

Boot-camps are cropping up all over the place. Their goal:

Get you started on your fat loss journey by giving you incredible results to keep you motivated.

Many people say that they would stick with a fitness program if they could just get some results.

It is hard to wait for a month or two to see a change in your clothing.

Fitness Boot-camp programs are designed to help you jump-start your process.

With a regimen that is challenging but safe.

Fitness Boot-camp classes are taught by trainers who have experience in this type of program.

True to the militaristic side, most classes are performed early in the morning for at least an hour.

Participants are taken through drills that involve high intensity cardio and weight training.

Your entire body is put through its paces.

The classes are conducted twice a week or more for a certain number of days.

Classes are kept small so that the instructor can pay attention to everyone.

It is not easy, but you will see a change in your body.

That you didn’t believe possible in such a short time.

The key to fitness boot-camp programs is the willingness to follow the program.

The program is exercise based but also may hit on a food plan.

To help the results you want to become reality.

The benefits of such a program are:

  • Self-confidence
  • Start on a road to better health
  • Knowledge that will help you keep up the program after boot-camp is over

 

Are you having trouble sticking to your fitness goals or even getting started?

Consider a boot-camp program as the right motivation.

Consult your doctor first to get clearance for a rigorous routine.
