2. Diarrhea  腹泻

Autumn diarrhea happens frequently from September to November ,which is caused by rotavirus,poor immunity or changeable weather.It is advised not to bring babies outdoors often,maintain a high hygiene standard,see a doctor if the child has persistent high fever with pale face.Breastfeeding is advocated and we should regularly disinfecting feeding bottle and tableware to avoid cross infection .


 3. Asthma  哮喘

Asthma is allergic constitution which is sensitive to allergens and it will lead to bronchospasm,hyperaemia of bronchial mucosa,increased bronchial secretion ,cough,short of breath,lots of sputum and so on.You are reminded not to contact the mite droppings,wash your bedding more frequently,and don’t use the carpet or plush toys.Stay away from secondhand smoke and avoid going out during the polluted days.
