How Does Polio Virus Affects Children?

Polio causes nerve or tissue damage, which leads to paralysis, troubles in breathing and even death in some cases. The weakness in the muscles causes inability to move from one place to another. Legs are the first body parts which get affected by polio but neck, head and diaphragm are also infected. Polio is spread through infected faecal matter entering the mouth or even through contaminated water. 

UPDATE: Check National Deworming Day 2018 Dates in Bangalore Chandigarh, Hyderabad, Chennai & other cities as well.

Types Of Polio

  1. Paralytic Polio: This form of polio is rare but serious but with time it gets worsened
  2. This form of polio can be seen generally where the initial symptoms are confused with normal illness. People who develop symptoms from the poliovirus contract a type of polio that doesn't lead to paralysis

Parents also need to be aware of any existing allergies in the family that might cause any infection or a reaction. 

  1. Floppy and loose limbs
  2. Loss of reflexes
  3. Post-polio syndrome
  4. Severe muscle aches and weakness
  5. Experts claim that you can protect your child from various deadly diseases effectively through proper immunization schemes
  6. The vaccines are made by scientists after years of research and are hence safe and effective. So having your child vaccinated from time to time will help you in protecting your child from Polio
