It is normal that as children grow older we stop watching a very important habit: their hygiene. But from what I have heard from a friend who is a primary school teacher, there are parents who do not teach and do not demand that their children follow good hygiene habits.

This friend told me that there are children who come to class in a sorry state. They smell strong of sweat, they have earwax in their ears, some dirty clothes, and some of them come with a few mouth breaths to wake up a dead person.

Parents need to be aware that good hygiene helps prevent illness in children, while promoting their personal well-being and relationships with others.

Hygiene is a necessity that seeks the well-being and health of the body, and even prevents some diseases. Hygiene is a measure that must be monitored both at home and at school. Hygiene of the body, clothing, food, the environment ...

1. Lto body hygiene
The daily bath or shower removes the remains of sweat, sebaceous secretion and germs, from the skin, hair, ears, etc.

2. Oral hygiene
Teeth should be cleaned at least before going to bed and when waking up. The elimination of the remains of the meals contributes to avoid cavities and to preserve the teeth.

3. Hand hygiene
They are the parts that get the most dirty and polluted. They can transmit germs when children get them in their eyes, ears, mouth, etc. Washing hands before and after eating, and whenever necessary, is a habit that we must demand of children.

4. Foot hygiene
It is a propitious part for the development of mycosis, conditions produced by fungi, which can give rise to a bad smell. Toenail and fingernails should be cut once a week.

5. The hiIt comes from clothes
That the dresses are clean. It is very important not to reuse already worn garments, such as socks, underwear, etc. Avoid very tight clothes that make it difficult for the body to breathe.

In any case, it is important that, even as children grow up, we do not stop monitoring their hygiene habits. Ask them if they have brushed their teeth, if they did not forget to use a deodorant, if they cleaned their ears, washed their hands, etc.

Proper hand washing is essential to prevent health problems, from a cold, flu, or infectious disease to food poisoning.

It is very normal that we frequently touch our face, mouth, eyes, or nose, so if our hands are not perfectly clean they become a vehicle for transmitting germs. Washing hands with soap is a simple habit that we are taught since childhood. In this way, we can eliminate from the skin a series of pathogenic microorganisms that we acquire when in contact with contaminated surfaces, and which can be viruses, bacteria, parasites and fungi.

The easiest and fastest way to combat these microbes is to wash your hands well, especially at times such as after going to the bathroom, sneezing or coughing, having touched objects that could be contaminated or animals, after visiting a sick person or changing the diaper to a baby and, of course, before eating, or handling or preparing food. We teach you how to wash your hands:

1. Wet your hands with water (if possible, warm) to remove surface microorganisms.

2. Apply soap to the palms of the hands

3. Briskly rub the palm of one hand against the other

4. Also rub the back from one hand to the other and vice versa

5. Rub the fingers of the hands up and down

6. Squeeze the right thumb with the left hand, rub it and vice versa

7. Rub the palm of one hand with the fingertips of the other and vice versa, in case dirt remains under the nails.

8. Rub the pulses of each hand

9. Put your hands under running water and make sure to remove the soap completely.

10. Finally, dry your hands thoroughly using clean towels or disposable paper.

11. If you don't have soap and water, alcohol gel can be used.
