Children get upto 8 colds per year. It is more frequent in the winter or rainy season. They get it mostly from other infected children. The common cold usually involves a runny nose, nasal congestion, sore throat, sneezing, cough and a headache. Infected children should get plenty of rest and drink a lot of fluids. Over the counter cough and cold medicines are not advisable for children under the age of six. The symptoms should disappear within a week. If not please consult your doctor.

2. Vaccination of Children
The vaccination of children has proven to be highly effective and has finally led to the near elimination of common childhood diseases such as polio, measles and tetanus. Children get the various vaccines at particular ages and the schedule is published by the US Center for Disease Control at this website:http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/schedules/index.html.
For your convenience we provide the "Vaccine Schedule" info on our website above.
Many serious head injuries in children can be prevented by helmet use. Under California law, children under the age of 18 need properly fastened helmets for riding bicycles, skateboards and non motorized scooters. I highly recommend helmet use for skiing and snowboarding also (this might become law soon). More information can be found at:
