Important reminders to all Parents!
The peak season for Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease (HFMD) is near.
HFMD is now more common than ever. It first appeared in Singapore in 1997 and there are now more than 22 different kinds of known HFMD strains, with Enterovirus 71 strain being the latest and the more virulent one that saw more than 55,000 cases in Malaysia and 31,000 cases reported in Singapore in Oct 2018.
The highest on record was in 2016 when 42,000 cases in Singapore were reported with more than half of the cases concentrating within the hotter months of August to October itself. Such seasonal pattern is also observed every year.
While the more common HFMD strain Coxsackie virus spreads wider, the Enterovirus 71 strain transmits faster among children aged 2-6 and attacks deeper into the body system with more complications which include brain, breathing and even heart palpitations. The average duration of recovery is 15 days, while fatalities were also reported in 2018.
For most of us, the more concerning issue is not so much about the quality of medical care available. But rather,
- How it can be even prevented given the fact that young children lack the conscious ability to avoid direct contact with infected persons,
- The issue of insufficient protective habits,
- The inevitable situation where our kids are placed amongst hundreds of other kids in child care or school for at least 4 hours a day.
The commonality of the above is the absence of yourself, the parent. So what can you do?
As parents, what pains our hearts most is to see the agony our little ones suffer from. The
prolonged worry, the frustration when the child struggles to refuse medication, food and even water, and the hapless wait for recovery.
As the old adage goes, prevention is better than cure. So let us share with you 3 important tips on how you can effectively protect your child, reduce risks and prevent infection of HFMD.
#1 Train your child to always carry and use a hand sanitiser regularly.
#2 Train your child to be aware of his/her surroundings, especially not to be in close contact with children who are coughing and/or sneezing.
#3 Take biogenics and metabolites regularly to boost kids’ resistance.
You may have heard of probiotics before. Biogenics and metabolites are active substances that originate from the probiotics (lactic acid bacteria) itself that are produced and secreted inside the human’s gut. It turns out that certain substances produced by these lactic acid bacteria are more important to human health than the probiotics themselves First discovered 80 years ago by Dr. Kazuyoshi Masagaki, Japan now leads the world in producing powerful biogenies and metabolites outside the body to fight against allergic reactions such as eczema, harmful influenza, HFMD viruses, bacteria and even chronic diseases like leukemia. Biogenics and metabolites are also clinically-proven to have the dynamic ability to boost the human immune system in a way whenever a new kind of virus or disease is found within the body system.
Nano Japan is proud to introduce Nano Biogenie & Metabolites, specially formulated for children.
