Sex education: a path to AIDS prevention

How many of you have received any lectures or training about sexuality in your life?

We are sure that if any of us had received a sex education in our childhood and adolescence, many of the problems or bad times we have experienced in this area would have been better resolved.

Sexuality education is now unfortunately becoming increasingly relevant for very negative reasons and that unwanted pregnancies and, above all, the spread of viral diseases such as HPV (Human Papillomavirus) and AIDS (HIV) are on the rise.

How to measure fever? Oblumi tapp is the solution.

One of the main problems and fears faced by parents of babies and children is that they get sick and have a fever. Fever is usually the symptom that something is wrong with your body. It appears as a defense mechanism against various situations, disorders, infections and pathologies. Most of the time it is a sign that a virus or bacteria is attacking the body. Excess clothing (especially in infants) and immunizations may also be a reason for them to have a feverish picture. That’s why it’s so important to determine if the baby or child has a fever. Then we’ll know how to act.

To do this, it is necessary to know how to measure the fever well in children. You may be familiar with the first gesture most parents make when we notice that their child is a little warmer than usual: place the palm of the hand on the child’s forehead or gently approach the lips to check if the temperature is high.

If we suspect that the baby may have a fever, what we should do is measure the body temperature with a thermometer.

The thermometer

When we think our kids may have a fever, it’s best to take their temperature with a digital thermometer.

There are some areas indicated for taking temperature in infants and children such as the rectum, forehead, armpit or ear.

The most accurate way to take babies’ temperature is with temporary artery thermometers, which use an infrared sensor that measures temperature by simply sliding it over the baby’s forehead and digital ear thermometers, called tympanic thermometers.

How to use a temporary artery thermometer (in the forehead)

Temporary artery thermometers are very easy to use, once you learn the technique.

It is very important to follow the instructions, as well as all the sample videos that the manufacturer himself can provide. If you still find it difficult, you can always go to your doctor-pediatrician, as they are used to using this type of thermometers.

The basic use of these thermometers is to position it at the point on the forehead between the eyebrows and the hairline.

Then you’ll have to make soft circles without squeezing. Et voilà. (Include video)

How to use an ear thermometer

Ear thermometers, as well as forehead thermometers, are usually fast, safe and comfortable. The only problem is that they add the complication of having to insert the thermometer into the small child’s ear canal, and if the procedure is not performed correctly and the thermometer is inserted well into the ear, the recording may be erroneous or inaccurate. In addition, wax accumulated in the ear also has an influence because it interferes with reading.

Ear thermometers are not recommended for infants younger than 6 months, because narrow ear canals in young infants can make it difficult to insert the sensor properly.

Thermometer connected to the smartphone. Everything registered.

Oblumi tapp is a device connected to the mobile phone that converts it into a digital infrared thermometer with multiple possibilities. We mean, it’s a digital thermometer.

Accurately measures temperature

In a few seconds you can take your body temperature in the forehead and ear. Its infrared sensor is specially designed for medical applications.

Calculate the drug dosage

Who remembers the correct dosage of antithermic drugs? Our app will calculate it automatically according to the data of each patient and for the most used medicines.

Records all data

Views the history of temperature data and medication intake, making it easy to track fever status and information for the healthcare professional.

Share patient profiles

You will be able to create as many patients as you need and share them with the users you want, the information will be automatically updated to all those who share a patient.

Send and receive notifications

You will be able to send an automatic notification of the temperature or medication to contacts with whom you share information.

Configure alarms

Avoid worries and set off an alarm so you don’t forget to take a temperature or medication again.

Check liquid temperature

How many times have you had a scare because the bottle was too hot or the bath water was too cold? With Oblumi tapp you can measure the temperature of any liquid with the same precision and speed.

Regardless of the method you choose, do not take your child’s temperature immediately after bathing, when it is likely to be higher. Wait at least 20 minutes after bathing for a more accurate reading. The same happens if your baby has been wrapped in a blanket, crib, cart, or if the area you are in is heated. You have to acclimatize the thermometer and yourselves about 15 minutes.

So… do not get nervous and go to the doctor when needed… Keep Calm ;)


winter is coming portada

Winter is coming. Let’s prepare our defenses.

The freakish parents know that the White Walkers,”in coming out” of the Seven Kingdoms do not exist. Here in the Land of Men, the dragons are others and they are called Viruses and there is no Valirian Fire or Vidriagon to stop them.

Winter is Coming and we talk about the dreaded winter sicknesses that like the Lannister clan, the Itis Family come to make us all suffer #TheNowFamily. Pharyngitis, bronchitis, bronchiolitis, otitis… we are ready!

In schools, the -Itis are expanding and proliferating. This places are their natural habitat. That’s why we must be cautious. You know what the saying goes, “cautious man-woman is worth two.”

For this, any barrier is small. The cold, the humidity, the dirt, etc… Don’t worry, we won’t see our children with their eyes filled with blue ice, but the precautions are not few, starting by dressing them as if they were onions. Layered. 

  1. From the cold Winterfell to the warmth Dorne, there is the same climate change as from Basque Country to Seville….. Therefore, keep your little ones warm by looking at the weather. We know, it’s a bit of a “bummer” (forgive me for the expression) but it’s so bad that they get cold, like sweating “deaths by heat” that Dorne-Seville people used to says.
  2. Masters have been studying, researching and testing how their ointments, concoctions and potions work for centuries. Let’s listen to the Doctors-Masters of this Earth and use the Vaccines properly, both to babies and children and to the elderly.

  3. One very simple thing that seems to have lost the habit of doing is to wash your hands frequently. Like Greyscale, most virus infections are transmitted by direct contact with the hands. After sneezing, going to the bathroom, touching our noses or anything else, wash your hands. Much more if we have children, babies and old people. They are the most affected.
    lavarse la manos
  4. Scarves with the Stark Wolf shield are beautiful, but please try to survive! Not to get sick! Wear disposable tissues. It’s not about you using a tissue for every blow snot (up to 6 can fit into a tissue) but using, ringing and pulling! That no one else can be in touch with “them.”
  5. Unless we’re going to sign an armistice, the PEACE pipe has to be left for another time. Whether we like it or not, tobacco is a -ine, therefore a drug. So it’s a good time to reconsider smoking. The contact of infants, children and the elderly with tobacco smoke should be completely avoided.fumar
  6. Do your children have a cloth or rag doll that they play with all day and are very fond of? You know what to do. Make him disappear. For the common good. He’ll show up again, don’t worry. But in Summer, when the sun’s fire brings us back to life.

Growing up is learning to say goodbye.

Adults have already learned that death is a natural part of life (we haven’t learned anything, we wouldn’t cry for example;) but children haven’t faced what the loss of no return means. 

When children begin to realize this, it is usually at 6 years of age. Some of them even before.

The positive attitude against cancer begins by touching yourself.


Much has been written, much has been written and will continue to be written. Cancer is a disease that unfortunately is with us. We all have someone close to us who suffers from it. Today we are talking about Breast Cancer, of which 1.7 million new cases are diagnosed worldwide each year. It is the most common tumor among women – and up to 30 percent of women diagnosed with early-stage breast cancer will eventually develop metastatic disease.

With this data we can get an idea that some of us will develop cancer in our lifetime. What’s scary to think about?

October 12th: multiculturalism that breaks borders.

Many are the readings taken on October 12th. The main reason why this day is important is because Christopher Columbus discovered two continents. It is true that what came later (by the very nature of the human being), were more discoveries, colonizations and several clashes between cultures.

But perhaps what we don’t realize is that we must learn from mistakes. And just as a child learns to walk on the basis of falls, those frontal clashes between cultures of the so-called “new world” made us what we are today.

The importance of grandparents in the family

Some people say that whoever has a friend has a treasure. For us and for you, we suppose that this treasure would also be the grandparents.

There are many who talk about them, the help they mean for parents in these times when conciliation is a precious word that designates a chimera. But, what are they for children? What do grandparents mean to children?




When we look for the definition of PEACE we usually find it next to a meaning in which its opposite word is mentioned: war. It is customary to define peace as “a time of No War”. In other words, the elderly, the adults, we define peace as all that time in which we are calm, without wars, without arguments, without “meddling” with anyone or that nobody “meddles” with us. That time when we don’t hit or beat each other. We don’t fight, we don’t scream… we’re in peace.

Perseid Meteor Shower with children

On the night of 11 to 12 August the stars fall from the sky. The night of Perseids Meteor Shower is one of the most magic nights in which you can ask for more wishes per minute. The tears of Saint Lawrence (as it is called in Europeans countries as Spain) fall to an average of 150 meteors per hour, so  you have more possibilities to ask for wishes than on any night of the year.
