Cold Weather Health Moves for Kids
Skin helps keep infection out of your body, so when it dries out and little cracks form, you’re literally more open to bacterial, viral or fungal infection. Here are some ways to prevent and speed—heal cold—weather skin problems.
Wipe out dryness: The combination of colder outdoor temperatures and dry indoor heat makes dry skin (and the annoying itching it causes) almost inevitable.
Handle hangnails: If your child’s hands are dry, chances are he’ll have hangnails just begging to be chewed on or torn off.
Beat chapped lips: Dry, flaky lips aren’t just annoying; in some cases, they can lead to cold sores.
Conquer cold sores: Once a kid has been exposed to the herpes virus, cold sores may recur.
