Sick-Child Care

Common Illnesses

Children tend to be more vulnerable to sickness due to their immune systems not yet being fully developed and their high exposure to germs at schools, daycares and other child care facilities. To help you, we've identified some of the most common childhood illnesses, how to recognize them, what causes them and potential treatments to help you manage the illness before it progresses.

Always consult your pediatrician for medical advice. If your child is experiencing a true medical emergency, please call 911.
