Cold and walks

Cold and walks

Is it possible to walk with a cold? Such a question interests many parents.

Dr. Komarovsky, who is popular in Russia, says that “a disease in which fresh air can be prevented by a child does not exist,” and considers walking with any respiratory infection a method of treatment. But, of course, much depends on the specific situation.

When a baby has a runny nose, you can walk if there is no rain, strong wind and the temperature of the child does not exceed subfebrile values ​​(up to 37.3 ° C).

With a cold, baby should stay at home if:

  • he feels weakness, weakness;
  • it has a high temperature (above 37.5 ° C);
  • outside there is a strong wind, rain or severe frost;
  • He takes medications with many side effects.

In principle, the same can be said about walks with infants suffering from a cold. If the crumbs are low-grade fever, the discharge from the nose is clear, he eats and sleeps, as usual, not only can walk with him, but also need to. Moreover, infants often suffer from a physiological rhinitis, which occurs because of too dry air in the apartment.

This condition is not a disease and is associated with the restructuring of the upper respiratory tract of the baby immediately after birth.

During the walk, the nasal mucous membrane is moistened, the symptoms of a cold run out. The reason for the cancellation of the walk can only be ARVI and the allergic nature of the common cold (allergic to pollen of flowering plants).

But since the last in a child younger than a year is found only in very rare cases, the parents have only one thing: to learn to distinguish the physiological rhinitis in a child from the symptoms of a viral or bacterial infection.

Many parents do not walk with babies who have a runny nose, as they are afraid to aggravate the cold and catch some other virus. But just for a walk, in the fresh air, the risk of contracting a viral infection is minimal.

If the baby has a runny nose, you can not walk, if:

  • he coughs, constantly sneezes;
  • nasal discharge whitish or green (this means that the bacterial infection has joined);
  • nasal discharge very abundant;
  • The baby has a high fever.

As for coughing, then, without a doubt, walks in the acute period of the disease should be excluded: with chills, high fever, weakness, sore throat, dry “barking” cough. You can not walk, and if the doctor has established a quarantine regime.

In the latter case, you put at risk the kids who will communicate with your child during the walk.

Walking is recommended when the child recovers and coughing is only a residual sign of an infection. A walk will help moisturize the mucous membranes, “transfer” a dry cough into a wet cough and thereby stimulate sputum separation.

Postpone the festivities if the temperature outside is below -5 ° C, it is raining or a strong cold wind is blowing.
