I was brought up in a small town,no, a big village, where I used to play at least for six hours a day.
Not a day passed without me getting some injury, generally somewhere beneath the knee.
This is apart from the hits I used to receive from friends, generally a black-eye.
Twice a month , at least, I remember having had Fever.
Running nose was perpetual.
Running Nose was generally ignored.
We were not aware of antiseptics, hand washes,Dettol and the like.
I have a grand son .about 3 years.
My daughter, right from the day he was born will never allow any one to touch him without sanitizing their hands.
He would be bathed in water with anti septic mixed in water.
If he catches the slightest of cold, he will be treated with anti-biotic, under a Paediatrician..
If he runs a mild temperature, he will be given paracetamol.
I am sixty-two .
I recall with difficulty that I was seriously sick not even once.
Now my grand son has infections every other day.
This is not about me and my grand son.
I find the present children being cared more for their own good.
Why not leave Mother nature to tend to its children?
One may take unavoidable medication.
For minor ailments like Fever, Cough allow the body to fight for 72 hours
