Bloody noses, chapped lips and dry skin are just some of the undesirable side effects that come with winter colds.
Your child probably will have more colds or upper respiratory infections than any other illness.
In the first two years of life alone, most youngsters have eight to 10 colds.
And if your kid is in a child care situation, or if there are older school-aged children in your house, he or she may have even more since colds spread easily among children who are in close contact with one another.
That's the bad news... but there is some good news too.
Most colds go away by themselves and do not lead to anything worse.
In this segment of Healthy Children, Dr.Lisa M. Asta discusses how to help prevent some of the illnesses that come with winter, as well as what to do with the symptoms and nasty side effects.
