This summer
don't let your child get dehydrated.

Keep hydrated
Keep hydrated

Without enough fluids a child is not healthy and dehydration can quickly occur.
Dehydrated children are pale, and listless. They do not pass urine frequently, and when they do it is much more concentrated than it should be (observe the colour). The eyes of a dehydrated child are often sunken; also the child may act irritably, and be very tired. All these are common symptoms of dehydration.

Alternative bottle water
Alkternative bottled water

Children should be drinking at least 8 six ounce glasses per day to stay hydrated and to prevent dehydration. Children often are shy water drinkers and need to be offered water regularly. If parents wait for the child to ask for drink dehydration becomes a risk. Parents need to make sure a drink is always available. Keep a plastic cup/ beaker/ bottle of fresh water at your child's spot at the table at all times. They'll take drinks from it often. Refill it several times per day. Keep a metal note on how many cups they've consumed so that you can make sure that their fluid needs are being met.

Dangerous energy drinks

The fluids that are not going to help hydrate your child are the ones like soda and iced tea. Anything that contains a lot of sugar or caffeine will not hydrate, but rather help to dehydrate your child. Kids really shouldn't be served these anyway. Hydrating sports drinks are also not the way to go for little ones. The American Academy of Pediatrics. says that they are particularly unhealthy for children due to the risks associated with caffeine and/or other stimulants including  carbs, minerals, electrolytes, flavoring, and calories. No the safest thing for children to drink is water The more kids learn to like the taste of water the better it is for them,

Otitis externa

2. Otitis externa (Swimmer's ear)

This is not your typical ear infection (middle ear infection) that follows a cold, but the one that we see during swim season. Swimmers ear is an inflammation of the outer ear where the ear becomes red, swollen, itchy, and very painful. Bacteria are the typical culprits but factors that predispose a child include swimming as well as heat and humidity. What happens is the skin of the outer ear becomes macerated and scratching the ear will allow bacteria to infect.

Aconite - Sudden onset after exposure to water with fever.
Belladonna - Sudden onset, flushed appearance, throbbing headache
