That’s right, it is back to school time! Here at The Friendlies Chemist we have a couple of tools to help the new year run smoothly. Whether its sore feet from new shoes, runny noses, fatigue or head lice, we have you covered.
Dehydration can be a dangerous situation if left untreated. It can lead to headaches, fatigue, vomiting and hospitalisation. So in this north Queensland summer heat it is important to stay well hydrated.
Threadworms are the most common type of worms to affect humans in Australia, particularly in children. The worms are passed between people if the eggs are swallowed or inhaled, which is why they are most prevalent in children, due to close contact with other children. The eggs then hatch, and the females move to the anus where they lay eggs, causing irritation and itching around the anus; especially at night as this is when they are most active. Other symptoms include irritability, restless sleep, bedwetting and abdominal pain, also nausea and vomiting in severe infestations.
Whether it’s in the school yard or day-care, every child comes into contact with headlice at some point, as parents it can become quite frustrating; especially if you are constantly treating and retreating your child. There are, however, a few tips that can help keep the nit numbers down in your household.
