Cold Relapse Targets Children

So far, it seems like we're seeing more colds than flu this season. In fact, if you have a child that is just getting over a bad cold don't celebrate yet.

Pediatricians will tell you when it comes to kids, especially there may be more where that came from.

"I often see that children will get multiple infections back to back, especially when they're exposed to a lot of other children and so one illness is actually two or even three illnesses and just as they're starting to get better, they're catching yet another cold," said  Dr. Tara Greenhow, a Pediatrician.

Dr. Greenhow says we need to remind our kids and show by example that the best thing we can do to stay healthy and avoid a trip to the doctor is lots of hand washing.
