The team from AXA PPP healthcare are back! This time we are looking at Summer Kids Health. A topic close to all our (parenting) hearts I am sure. More info on the live chat party below.. but just so you know – leave a question on Summer Kids Health below and your questions will a) be answered and b) you will be entered into a £200 pampering products from The Sanctuary (please see T&Cs below). Whoop whoop.
Summer and Kids
Summer to me is all about sunshine (ahem, here in the UK?!) and being outdoors. Running around. Fresh air. And having fun. Pretty healthy all round of course. So no real health issue to worry about, or are there? Well yes….
My kids are curious kids.. and they are into everything and they want to pick everything up. When Red Ted was two, we had about 3 bee stings in a row! (I think Red Ted did FINALLY learn his lesson). We were very lucky that they were not bad bee stings and that there was no allergic reaction. I turned to trusted twitter to help and found out that bicarbonate of soda helps with a sting. I tell you it was like magic: one minute my child was crying. The next he was saying “ouchy gone”. Isn’t bicarbonate of soda simply AMAZING?! But I digress. How lucky was I, that there was no reaction?! Pip Squeak has been spared the bee sting… but what if SHE is allergic?
My first question the AXA PPP healthcare team:
What first aid do you apply to a child that is allergic to a bee sting- of course call the ambulance, but what else can you do?
We do like going to the park and I do encourage lots of climbing of trees. I think tree climbing is something simply wonderful. I don’t know what it is, but a childhood without a climbed tree or 2 or 100, just isn’t the same. But with climbing come risks. Again, as of yet, nothing bad has happened, other than the odd scraped knee or elbow. When I was a child, one of my friend fell from a climbing frame and he within seconds, had a bruise the size of a (black) tennis ball on his forehead (I kid you not!). It was pretty horrid and quite worrying. Luckily overall, he was ok. But again… my fear, worry and question to the AXA PPP healthcare team:
What should you do if your child has fall from a tree or climbing frame? What things should you watch out for over the next 1-2days?
