4 Your Health: Headache diary; what's lurking in sandboxes; allergic reactions

Posted: Updated:

Tucson- Many children who suffer a severe allergic reaction are not treated quickly enough.

Researchers looked at hospital records of over 400 children treated for anaphylaxis. Less than half received epinephrine before arriving at the emergency room even though many had an auto injector with them at the time of their allergic reaction.

Kids who had a incident at home were less likely to receive epinephrine than those who were at school. 

A stressful today could mean a migraine tomorrow.

A new study from Massachusetts General Hospital included 95 patients who kept a headache diary.

The research revealed people were most likely to have a migraine the day after they experienced a lot of stress.

Experts say it may be possible to preemptively treat migraines on these high risk days.

Hidden dangers in sandboxes

An alert for parents about what could be lurking in playground sandboxes.

Researchers in Spain found about half of sandboxes they tested contained the intestinal bacteria, C-difficile. 

Some strains of the bacteria were resistant to antibiotics.

Studies in the U.S. have also found worms and other parasites hiding in the sand.

Experts recommend that parents wash their children's hands, or use disinfectant wipes, after they play in a public sandbox.
