Should a child be given a bath during minor sickness?
Q: Whenever my three years old son is sick with fever or cough/cold, my husband says I should not give him a bath. On the other hand, I feel a bath is necessary every day and see no harm even during illness. Should a child be given a bath during minor sickness or not?
A:There is no reason at all for avoiding a bath if a child has a minor fever/cough/cold. Often after a bath they feel more comfortable.
