The most common symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of:
  • New continuous cough and/or
  • High temperature
For most people, coronavirus (COVID-19) will be a mild illness If you have coronavirus symptoms:
  • Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital
  • You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home
  • Testing for coronavirus is not needed if you're staying at home
  • Plan ahead and ask others for help to ensure that you can successfully stay at home and consider what can be done for vulnerable people in the household
  • Ask your employer, friends and family to help you to get the things you need to stay at home
  • Wash your hands regularly for 20 seconds, each time using soap and water, or use hand sanitiser
  • If you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home, or your condition gets worse, or your symptoms do not get better after 7 days, then use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service. If you do not have internet access, call NHS 111. For a medical emergency dial 999

Stay at Home
  • If you live alone and you have symptoms of coronavirus illness (COVID-19), however mild, stay at home for 7 days from when your symptoms started. (See ending isolation section below for more information)
  • If you live with others and you or one of them have symptoms of coronavirus, then all household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill
  • It is likely that people living within a household will infect each other or be infected already. Staying at home for 14 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community
  • For anyone in the household who starts displaying symptoms, they need to stay at home for 7 days from when the symptoms appeared, regardless of what day they are on in the original 14 day isolation period. (See ending isolation section below for more information
  • If you can, move any vulnerable individuals (such as the elderly and those with underlying health conditions) out of your home, to stay with friends or family for the duration of the home isolation period
  • If you cannot move vulnerable people out of your home, stay away from them as much as possible

My child has eczema. What is the cause and how can it be treated?

Eczema is where the skin becomes very dry and can become red and inflamed. We don’t know the exact cause of eczema but genetic and environmental factors come into play. In infants, it can often be foods such as milk and wheat. The good news with this type of allergy is that most children grow out of it by around seven years of age. In adults and older children as well as certain foods, there is often a trigger such as house dust mite, pet fur and saliva or wool and synthetic materials. Its worthwhile examining everything you use in the house from toiletries to detergents and try and use allergen free varieties. Keep your body at an even temperature since heat and excessive perspiration can cause red itchy patches. Moisturising the skin is the main treatment and always use a downward stroke to avoid irritating the skin further. There is a vast range of emollients (moisturisers) some ointments for example are useful where you want to create a barrier for thick dry skin particularly at night. Creams are better for day time use and bath oils are effective where you want to create a layer of oil trapping water and preventing dehydration.For flare ups I usually recommend a mild steroid such as hydrocortisone or eumovate but for a maximum of seven days and there are restrictions concerning the sale of these products for children. Taking omega 3 is sometimes helpful but make sure you include a good quality one with high concentrations of EPA and DHA.For more information, call into the pharmacy.
