Back to School Essentials
We can’t quite believe we’re even writing this but it’s that time of year again! Kids are back to school and as you all know the minute they head back the minute they catch everything going!
From the sniffles to the dreaded headlice they are susceptible to everything as soon as they head back so the best thing to do is to try and equip them with the best possible things to prevent them catching all those nasty infections!
Firstly putting them on a probiotic as well as other immune system boosting supplements will ensure that they are equipped with the strongest immune system they can have so they can dodge all those bugs.
It’s also quite a daunting time for kids especially if they’re moving from a little class to a big class or into big school, there are many natural remedies and treatments that can help calm and balance their nerves so they don’t feel on edge. Pop into Lilly’s Pharmacy for more details about these remedies and whether or not they would be suitable for your child.
Headlice is the most dreaded of the back to school bugs! No one wants to hear that their child has an itchy head! If any parents have faced this in the last few years they know how hard it can be to eradicate those nasty little things, and that the lice have actually become immune to many of the over the counter headlice treatments. One of the best ways to kill headlice is actually through combing the hair with a fine tooth comb as this actually breaks their legs and kills them too. Spraying the hair with tea tree oil mixed with water can also help as a preventative measure which deters the lice from attaching to the hair.
There are also a few natural remedies that have been found to be effective so pop into one of our healthcare advisors in Lilly’s pharmacy for more details about those products.
