Keeping Kids Germ Free Dr. Jim: Yes. With kids there’s not final all over the place and they all go to school and they just share it you know talking about good hand washing is important. When your child is sick maybe not sending them to school, but I’ve always recommended coughing and sneezing under your elbow, we call it a little birdie cough. But this is a cool little product. It’s called a Germy Wormy. And where’s there is a little sanitary sleeve. Maybe Liza you want to put one of those on. Dr. Drew: It’s a mini diaper. Dr. Jim: Yes it’s kind of like a diaper for the child’s elbow and you put it on there. Dr. Liza: Sneeze into it. Dr. Jim: And they sneeze and cough in there and those little worm, a little wormy on there and you can tell them, tell your child a little story. Okay this is the wormy, his favorite is germs so make sure you feed him and cough. And you know use it after a few times, you can just tear it off and replace it. It’s disposable, it’s kind of cool. Dr. Travis: That is kind of cool. Dr. Liza: It’s awesome. Or you can do what I do with my child. I paid off somebody to keep him away from all the sick kids.
