Cold and Flu Season Protection

It’s the middle of winter and that means cold and flu season is officially here. With the cold and flu season in Knoxville in full swing, it’s time to do a checklist for the health and well-being of your kids and your entire family.

Cold and Flu Season Tips

  • Make Sure Everyone Washes Hands
  • Wipe Down Counter Surfaces and Door Handles
  • Keep Your Driveway Shoveled to Prevent Falls
  • Get Outdoors for Some Vitamin D
  • Drink Plenty of Water
  • Eat a Diet Rich in Vitamins and Minerals
  • Take Good Care of Skin

While the last tip from Powell Pediatrics may seem like an odd one, it really isn’t. Your skin is the largest organ in your body.

When you bundle your kids and yourself in layers it is quite easy to neglect skin. Remember because it is the largest organ in the body it is also a quick and easy entry point for any type of infection.
