“Mom, my throat is dry and scratchy.” Sigh. That’s how it starts in our house, with a quiet whisper of a “dry” throat. That’s my clue that a cold is about to make its way through the family. But the question is, will it be a small cold or something bigger? I am never sure. Thanks to a new product called SayAhh! Sore Throat Home Exam Aid parents have a new tool at their disposal to help them make that call.
I am not the kind of mom to rush my kids to the doctor for a cold. I much prefer the wait and see approach, avoiding antibiotics whenever possible. (In fact, I am not sure my three year old has ever had antibiotics!) But ugh, sometimes it is hard to make that call. Does this throat thing warrant a doctor’s visit, could it be strep or just a cold?
No parent enjoys dragging a sick kiddo to the drug store, so I always make sure my medicine kit is well stocked with everything my kids could need in the event of the sickies. My well-stocked medicine kit includes:
- Fever relievers
- Sore throat relief
- Cough Syrup
- Nasal Sprays
- SayAhh! Sore Throat Home Exam Aid
SayAhh! helps parents easily observe their child’s throat. Intended for children ages six and up, it is made of an easy-to-grip medical grade plastic that is more comfortable in the mouth than wood or metal and designed to minimize the gag reflex.
The SayAhh! Sore Throat Home Exam Aid includes a tongue depressor that minimizes the gag reflex, a flashlight, and a chart with medical-grade illustrations and descriptions of six common childhood throat ailments. For more in depth information SayAhh! customers have access to a health management program on SayAhh!’s website and the new SayAhh! Exam Guide App, which provide a solid basis for comparison to what should be seen in a normal throat.
While not intended to diagnose or prevent diseases, the SayAhh! tools give parents the ability to determine if an office visit is necessary and better report to the doctor what has been observed.
SayAhh! is currently available for purchase online for a suggested retail price of $9.49. Save $1 with coupon code mom423 plus get free shipping through November 1.
