Everyone in my house has been fighting a virus for the past two weeks, and it has been rough. The little kids had high fevers and bad coughs all of the adults have had headaches, fevers, congestion and coughs, we have not been functioning too well with it all.
Be Koool had sent me some great cooling gel strips, and I have to say that they were a godsend over the past couple of weeks. I was incredibly impressed with how soft these were and with them being gel like they are so pliable that they fit so nicely against their foreheads.
Fevers are not dangerous for children and they are actually beneficial to a point for the body to fight virus and infections. Fever can be scary, and any fever in an infant younger than 3 months is cause for concern because of the risk of serious bacterial infections. However in older children who do not look very distressed, fever is positive evidence of an active immune system, revved up and helping to make them better faster.
The biggest problem with fever is they make kids feel so lousy and nobody likes to see a little one sick. I love that these Be Koool strips instantly made the kids feel better, they visibly perked up and you could tell that they appreciated the coolness.
The Be Koool strips work for about 8 hours and they work instantly, you can use them with medication with no interactions and you can even cut them down to fit smaller kids foreheads. You don’t have to worry about them leaking water everywhere from using ice or having a wet rag in bed with them while trying to use a cold compress.
