How to avoid catching your child’s cold

Winter is not only a season of outdoor fun but also colds, sore throats, fever, and flu especially for children, and eventually for you as a mom. There is nothing more annoying than a houseful of sick children while you are sick too and it’s hard to act like someone’s mom at all. 

What can help to avoid catching your child’s cold is trying everyday preventive actions like for example washing your hands or using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer, or placing cut onions around your home during cold and flu times. I even went that far and wore surgical masks when my kids were still little and sick every other week. Sometimes it really worked for me, but not always.

This winter our 3yo caught a cold just before the Christmas holidays, and it made me feel almost panicking: “If we get the bug, we can forget about skiing this holiday!”. Just by chance (and in time), I got a new product to test ProSens Sprays that promised it can keep you safe from getting sick. So I immediately made everyone in the family (including myself) using it every day. It`s been 2 weeks now, our little one is still coughing and sneezing but we are fine and skiing as planned.

 


According to ProSens, what is special about their Nose Protective Spray and Protective Throat Spray, it moisturizes the mucous membranes and forms an antiviral protective film on them and prevents viruses from attaching to the mucous membrane cells. The ingredient that makes it possible is called Carrageose (molecules that wrap the viruses and bacteria). ProSens doesn`t contain preservatives, it`s vegan, lactose and gluten-free and doesn`t cause resistance, side effects or dependency ofter a long-term use and therefore is also suitable for pregnant women, nursing mothers and small children. And, it tastes pleasant, which is important when you need to use it with children. ProSens Nose Spray is used as a classical nose spray when you’re all stuffed up from a cold and need fast and safe relief.

With a few smart manoeuvres, I hope there will be no flu for you and your family this year!
