It’s a busy, sick autumn

Our office has been very busy with one of the sickest autumns any of us can remember. We’re seeing, well, a ton of everything. It’s becoming more difficult for any of us to keep our kids healthy.

A sample of what’s out there:

  • Strep throat
  • Enterovirus D68, which causes a prolonged and sometimes severe cough, and can be even more serious for children with asthma. CDC update here.
  • Parainfluenza, which can cause croup, laryngitis, or pneumonia
  • Fevers—lots of fevers, caused by a variety of infections. Most of these are viral, but they’re lasting several days
  • RSV, a virus that affects young babies most, causing cough and wheeze and congestion
  • And: Influenza has begun to appear!

The best ways to keep your children safe from these and other infections are:

  •  Stay away from sick people
  • If you or your children are sick, stay home
  • Practice good hand hygiene. Don’t touch your own face, and wash or sanitize hands frequently
  • Make sure your children are fully vaccinated, including their yearly influenza vaccines
