Family life



Learning how to manage common illnesses with confidence and common sense is a great life skill. It’s something that we learn from our parents, from visiting our doctors, and from our own experience. It’s also something that lots of people are now learning from the internet. We all need good, sound advice to develop the confidence and skill to take care of ourselves and our families, and this website aims to give you that advice. We want to help you to know how to deal with common illnesses like colds, flu, earaches, tummy bugs and more. And, we want to make sure that the advice you get online is from trusted sources of good quality and correct health information. was developed using health information and advice from the HSE and the experience of GPs and Pharmacists from around Ireland.
