Good health is important, especially when it comes to children. When kids are sick, it can make their parents feel under the weather, too. Fortunately, some medical professionals specialize in the treatment of common pediatric illnesses and can help your little ones feel better sooner.

What are the most common childhood illnesses?


Many illnesses are common during childhood, including the following:
 
Common Cold — The common cold is known as “common” for a reason; it affects nearly everyone at some point during their life and can be very prevalent during childhood.
 
Ear Infections — Ear infections are a common complication of upper respiratory infections, and can be recurring in some individuals.
 
Influenza — The flu, which is similar in prevalence to the common cold, frequently affects children, causing symptoms of fever, muscle soreness, headaches, and a lack of appetite.
 
Conjunctivitis — Pink eye (or pink eye) is a common childhood illness that is characterized by inflammation of the conjunctiva, the mucous membrane that covers the front of the eye. It can be caused by infection, irritation, or allergies.

What are the common symptoms of an unwell child?


When a child is unwell, they show many visible signs of sickness, such as whining more, playing less, and lethargy. Children also exhibit symptoms indicative of an illness, including runny nose, coughing, low-grade fever, sneezing, and gastrointestinal upset (vomiting or diarrhea). Fortunately, common childhood illnesses typically clear up on their own with rest, at-home care, and over-the-counter medicines. It is normal for a child who is feeling unwell to exhibit the following symptoms:

– Fever
– Headache
– Malaise (tired)
– Diarrhea
– Nausea and vomiting
– Rash
– Sore throat
– Cough
– Swollen lymph glands
– Excessive drooling (in young children)
– Abdominal pain

However, some symptoms are indicators of a more concerning condition or complication, especially if the child has a suppressed immune system, diabetes, asthma, or other chronic illness. Symptoms that require medical attention include:

– Difficulty breathing
– High fever (over 104ºF)
– Dehydration

How can we prevent diseases and illnesses in children?


The best way to prevent diseases and illnesses in children is to teach them proper hygiene and self-care practices, and most importantly, ensure they are well-nourished and physically active. Many diseases, in children and adults alike, are the result of an improper diet, leading to an imbalance that causes symptoms of sickness. In addition to this, children need to see a pediatrician regularly, at least once a year, but in many cases more.
