Triaminic Thin Strips - Sick Day Guidelines

Triaminic has always been our first choice in medicines for our little loves. My little ones like the flavors that Triaminic offers! Ethan prefers the grape and Ella likes the Bubble Gum! Neither of my little ones enjoy medicine so we were thrilled when we discovered Triaminic Thin Strips. These strips are great! We just place them on their tongue and they dissolve quicker than they can spit them out!

You just know when your child isn't feeling well, but how can you know when coughs and sniffles mean it's time to keep your child home from school? Or when to call the doctor? Since school-aged children get up to 10 colds a year, it can be a puzzle for many parents.
That's why the National Association of School Nurses (NASN) and Triaminic® have partnered to create "Sick Day Guidelines: Making the Right Call When Your Child Has a Cold." Some 22 million school days are missed each year in the U.S. due to colds, which are also the leading cause of doctor visits and missed school and work days.

Sick Day Guidelines:

Keep your child home from school and group activities if he or she:
Has a fever of 100.4 degrees or higher
Has been vomiting
Has symptoms that prevent him or her from participating in school, such as:
Excessive tiredness or lack of appetite
Productive coughing, sneezing
Headache, body aches, earache
Sore throat
You should also keep your child home until his or her fever has been gone for 24 hours without medication. Colds can be contagious for at least 48 hours. Returning to school too soon may slow the recovery process and can unnecessarily expose others to illness.
