In the summer, young children often have sore throats, even lasting weeks to heal, making them tired, anorexia, restless sleep, and weight loss. So, what should parents do to help their children quickly get rid of sore throat as well as prevent this disease?
Sore throat – “summer obsession” of mothers
Hot summer days are the time when sore throats flare up, causing a sudden increase in the number of children hospitalized for examination and treatment. On average, the number of children visiting the hospital in the summer increased by 20% compared to normal times.
Explaining this situation, doctors said that young children are prone to sore throats in the summer because of some wrong habits when taking care of their parents. Letting children drink cold water, eat ice cream, turn on the fan to direct the body, lie down in the air-conditioner often … make the respiratory system of the child weak due to the dry mucous membranes of the throat and nose, dehydration. From there, creating conditions for viruses and bacteria to attack and cause disease.
In fact, pharyngitis is a common disease, but many children have to be hospitalized due to complications from bronchitis and severe pneumonia. properly to avoid serious complications.
How to properly handle and treat a child with a sore throat
According to experts, sore throat can be caused by viruses and bacteria. Of these, more than 80% of sore throat cases in children are caused by viruses.
However, many parents confuse sore throats with viruses and bacteria, leading to incorrect treatment, leaving children vulnerable to many unpredictable complications that require hospitalization.
Parents need to distinguish children with sore throat caused by viruses or bacteria to have appropriate treatment.
Usually, children with viral pharyngitis have symptoms such as sneezing, runny nose, headache, cough, fever, rarely sputum or white, liquid sputum. In this case, antibiotics are completely ineffective, so parents absolutely do not arbitrarily give antibiotics to children. Instead, parents need to treat the child’s symptoms.
When the child has a fever above 38.5 degrees, it can be used to reduce the child’s fever but not more than 4 times a day. Cough medicine should not be used immediately for children, but only when children cough a lot because cough medicine only helps to relieve symptoms. Parents can also make natural cough suppressants from honey, ginger, and lemon for their children to use.
For bacterial pharyngitis, the most typical manifestation is a red throat, with spots or white borders in the throat or tonsils. The child coughs with green or yellow sputum. To treat bacterial pharyngitis, it is necessary to use antibiotics at the right dose and for a full course of time as prescribed by your doctor.
Do not arbitrarily give antibiotics to children.
In fact, it is difficult to distinguish viral and bacterial pharyngitis, so when a child has a sore throat, parents need to calmly monitor their child’s symptoms. If the child’s high fever does not decrease or the symptoms do not improve after 3-5 days, parents need to take the child to the hospital so that the doctor can diagnose the condition and treat it promptly.
Obviously, children with sore throat due to any cause, their health and development are also affected. Therefore, the urgent thing that parents need to do right away is to limit the risk of infection in children.
How to prevent summer sore throat effectively for children?
To limit the risk of pharyngitis in children, parents should note the following:
– Keep your child’s teeth clean, away from dust and tobacco
– Do not turn on the fan directly in front of the child, avoid letting the child lie in the air-conditioned room for a long time
– Wash the child’s nose to clear the airway
– Increase children’s resistance
In particular, increasing resistance is an effective way to keep children healthy, “goodbye” to summer sore throat because sore throat is mainly caused by viruses, there is no specific medicine.
In order to effectively and properly increase the resistance of children, parents need to give children enough sleep, drink enough water, rest and exercise properly, fully vaccinated against diseases (flu, tuberculosis, measles, chickenpox). …), supplementing children with essential micronutrients for the immune system such as vitamins A, C, D, zinc, iron…
In particular, parents need to supplement children with specific immune-boosting active ingredients such as: Beta-glucan to directly stimulate the child’s immune system. This active ingredient is highly appreciated by experts for its role in stimulating immunity, reducing the rate of illness in children.

Not only that, but this group of children also found a reduction in hospital admissions, a reduction in medication use, and fewer absences from school.
