House Full of Sickies

It is simple, my kids are sick, I have a nasty cold, and it is only a matter of time before my husband contracts something, too.
But here is the tricky part, my 3-year old has a fever but my 9-month doesn't yet. Is there anything I can do to prevent her from getting what he has?

About four months ago I seemed to prevent my daughter from getting my son's cold by wearing a specific shirt to interact with each child - that way they were at least just getting their own germs when they rubbed their heads on my shoulder. But that is not going to happen this time because the summer heat is keeping Mommy in a tank top, so they both get the same skin to wipe their noses on.

What I hate the most...you aren't supposed to get sick during the summer! Colds and flu are supposed to happen just during the winter (well, at least in my mind anyway).
I am taking my son to the pediatrician this afternoon about the fever, but any wonderful motherly advice would be greatly appreciated!

Hand sanitizer, hand sanitizer, hand sanitizer! That way your hands won't get as dry as they would from washing every two seconds!
