In brief: Wash hands!

You will never be able to prevent all infections, but that's ok.
As long as your child has a normal immune system, he/she will be able to handle most infections. Make sure your child gets all the recommended vaccinations! When around other sick kids, make sure to wash hands. Many doctors think your immune system being exposed to antigens may actually be beneficial. Doctors are always there to help
