The trees are budding; the bees are buzzing, and everything seems ready to burst into bloom. Soon the kids will be home for those long, hot summer days. They will be running and playing, climbing trees, and probably getting all manner of summer boo-boos in the process. The simple truth is that spending more time outside means an increased likelihood of summertime scrapes, bee and wasp stings, insect and animal bites, sore muscles, and bruises and sprained ankles from playing or working hard on household projects. And it also means that your doctor may be out of town with his own family on a vacation, or have shorter office hours for the summer.
Summer is a great time to get out and just enjoy nature. Camping in the back yard or woods can be fun, but it can also mean a nasty rash if you happen to get too close to poison oak or ivy. Asthma attacks, hay fever, and allergies all tend to increase when the pollen is rising. And with more time in the water, kids are more prone to pick up a nasty case of swimmer’s ear. Ticks and mosquitoes are out enjoying the season too. They are always more than happy to hitch a ride, or make you into their main course.
