How to help your child when they catch a cold or the flu (influenza)

Posted on 14-03-2022

The best thing you can do is to help your child feel more comfortable, make sure they get more rest and that they drink water or other liquids. Your child’s doctor may want to see the child or ask you to keep a close eye on the child, let them know if you see no daily improvement or if they are still not better after a week. Use nasal drops with salt water or saline solution (1 or 2 drops in each nostril) or a nasal spray (1 or 2 sprays into each nostril). For babies, use a bulb syringe suction device to extract the drops of additional spray.

When using the bulb syringe suction device, remember to firstly squeeze the bulb syringe, inserting the rubber tip gently into the nostril and then releasing the bulb slowly.
