Triaminic Cold & Flu Symptom Tracker

If you’re anything at all like me then you don’t hate this time of year because of the cold, or even the snow (the ice does bite though). You hate it because you’re worried about your children getting sick. This is my biggest concern always! I am continuously telling them to wash their hands, keep their fingers away from their faces, don’t touch the hall walls at school (EWW GROSS!), run if anyone even looks like they’re gonna sneeze – okay I don’t go that far, but sometimes I’d like to!

I was very interested when I learned about Triaminic®‘s National Cold & Flu Symptom Tracker. This online tool shows a weekly data feed of cold & flu symptom trends by state. I was even happier when I clicked on PA and seen that our area is in the moderate range, low would be better but we can’t have everything!

You may also want to check out the Sick Day Guidelines that Triaminic® partnered with the National Association of School Nurses (NASN) to create. Parents know when their kids aren’t feeling 100% – these Guidelines are aimed at helping parents decide when to keep them at home, or send them off to school. There are also some great tips on cold & flu prevention there.

Triaminic® has made it easier for us to get our kids to take their medicine too! With the Children’s Triaminic® Thin Strips there should be a lot less fuss than when they have to drink the dreaded liquid! It’s great for moms like me who can never find that elusive dosage cup that comes with the usual cold medicine. Thin Strips are pre-measured for correct dosage that dissolves right on the tongue! So easy to take with you too! Triaminic®products are safe and effective only when used as directed. Always be sure to carefully read the label before giving your child any medications. Triaminic® is NOT for children under the age of 4.

Buy It:
Triaminic® Thin Strips are available in a variety of formulas at many retail and online stores nationwide. They come in yummy flavors like grape, wild berry and raspberry.
