Sore Throat in Children

Children living in households where people smoke experience irritation of their eyes, nose, and throat, and have more colds and ear infections. They also are more likely to cough, be short of breath, and have asthma, pneumonia, and other respiratory symptoms.

Do not smoke or let anyone else smoke around your child.
