PARENT INFORMATION

 

Want A Natural Solution For Repeated Colds?

 

People can take antibiotics for a cold in the belief that it will help them to prevent complications.

Young children can sometimes have had several courses of antibiotics in their first two years of life. Research has emerged that these children are the ones who are more likely to go on to develop allergies and asthma, so apart from minimising antibiotic resistance, there is good reason to reserve the use of antibiotics for more serious complaints.

Keeping antibiotic use to a minimum is supported in Australia by the National Prescribing Service http://www.nps.org.au which campaigns against the use of antibiotics for non-bacterial infections. They produce a series of booklets stickers and pamphlets called Common Colds Need Common Sense They Dont Need Antibiotics. Consumers can call the Medicines Line on 1300 888 763.

Colds and upper respiratory tract infections respond best to resting at home and taking nutritious fluids, possibly some vitamin C and zinc, both of which are good at combating viruses. When people soldier on and do not rest when they have a cold, it is much more likely to develop into the flu.

It is a normal event that most people with get a couple of colds a year. Healthy people will recover from a cold within a week. When colds or other infections occur too frequently in adults or children, there may be a struggling immune system behind the problem. When colds are a real problem, and don't respond to the normal measures, then its time to seek treatment. Homeopathic medicines are excellent at managing colds symptoms and preventing repeated infections.
