Throat sores, itchy eyes, and phlegmy coughs– just some of the many symptoms surrounding nasty daycare illnesses at their worst. As we approach flu season, it is also important to address the looming threat of these illnesses known for bringing about mouth sores, diarrhea, or vomiting for kids. These nasty germs, known as ‘daycare germs’, thrive in your child’s daycare and are among some of the worst culprits of illnesses spread within a family. Although it is not always realistic to prevent toddlers from touching their faces, surfaces, or other children with contaminated hands, there is a way to reduce the threat of these daycare illnesses effectively. With professional sanitation services, your children can be well-protected from these dangerous illnesses as their contact with contaminated surfaces is minimized with sanitation measures in their daycare facility.
Conjunctivitis, otherwise known as ‘pink eye’, leads to painful inflammation on the outer membrane of the eye. This daycare disease starts with a highly contagious virus or strain of bacteria that infects the eye, causing inflammation, as well as itchy and runny eyes. While hand washing is always an important step for preventing the spread of illnesses, it is particularly crucial during breakouts of pink eye amongst the children in your daycare.
Hand, Foot, and Mouth Disease
This painful daycare disease manifests itself in the form of unpleasant sores on the skin and mouth. Hand, foot and mouth disease is a viral skin disease transmitted through direct contact with infected mucus or saliva. Because of how easily this illness is spread, this disease is especially common for children in daycare centers. The mouth sores and high fevers caused by this illness make it an especially uncomfortable and dangerous condition for children.
Upper Respiratory Infections
The cough of an upper respiratory infection is a recognizable one, especially amongst children. This viral infection is often passed around children in daycares and schools easily throughout the school year as it is transmitted through contaminated air and surfaces. While upper respiratory infections are not usually serious, they can often lead to dangerously high fevers as well as discomfort caused by coughing and a runny nose, making it even more easily contagious in a daycare setting.
