I had a head cold yearly as a child, especially when I was in school while I was in flu season as well as surrounded by sick children who don’t cover their faces or noses when they cough or sneeze.
My mother would send myself and others to school with hand sanitizer, however I’m not sure how often I genuinely used it.
I hated getting sick too, even if it meant I could miss school from time to time. And since I had asthma, getting sick would take myself and others off our feet faster as well as longer than it would for most youngsters our age. The worst thing was having our friends come down the street to play street hockey with myself and others separate from realizing that I was sick inside as well as couldn’t come out to play. Since both of us consistently lived in a cold, northern climate, the Autumn as well as Winter seasons are exceptionally dry. Dry is wonderful for preventing mold as well as microbial growth indoors, however it can lead to severe physical discomfort. Some people report abnormally dry skin, dry eyup, sinus pain, etc. I’ll even get a headache as a hourary reaction from our initial symptoms. My mom consistently ran a humidifier for myself and others whenever I was current home sick to help with the symptoms. But I’ve l acquired since then that you should be careful using these devices in climates where ambient humidity is over 60% outside. Adding more moisture to criticall humid air will lead to apparent concerns with mold as well as mildew. If it’s the Winter as well as humidity is below 40%, then using a humidifier is a wonderful way to have more comfortable indoor air than you would have otherwise.
