Children are especially at risk during the hazy season because their immune systems haven't fully developed. That's why it's of the utmost importance to help protect your little ones from the possible health impacts of the haze. Here is a quick guide to help you be one step ahead during this hazy season:

Symptoms to watch out for

  • Itchy, watery or red eyes
  • Sneezing or runny nose
  • Skin irritation/rashes
  • Sore throat
  • Dry throat and cough
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Reduced stamina

What to do if your child is experiencing any of these symptoms

  • Limit your little one's exposure to the haze
  • Make sure doors and windows are closed to prevent the haze from getting indoors
  • If your child continues to experience these symptoms, consult with your doctor as soon as you can

Precautions to help keep your kids safe

  • Minimise outdoor activities when the PSI is greater than 100
  • Avoid any outdoor exposure when the PSI is greater than 200
  • Keep your doors and windows closed at home
  • Clean the filters of your air conditioner
  • Ensure that your little one is hydrated and drinking plenty of fluids
