girls constantly ill

Hi Doc
I am a mother of 2 girls, 3 year and 1 9 months, they started Day care in January, but lately we have been visiting doctors since from March cause they get sick and the exchange each other, they Day care is a very clean and the Teachers are very good, but I am worried with their health. I bought Creche Guard for them, I give them once a day between Monday and Friday, but the immune systems is worrying me, kindly advice what can I give them/ prevent from the sicknesses, as in now my little one has Pink eye, she is at home.

Even though your children attend a good and clean day care it is the other children there who are repeatedly infecting your children. It is a good idea to give them Creche Guard. Both would also benefit from having the flu vaccination this year. Also give them a probiotic such as Probiflora Children's for 10 days per month through the winter months to boost their immunity.
