Baby & Childhood Illnesses

Diagnosis, Symptoms and Treatment

AILMENTS IN CHILDREN

Being a parent doesn’t mean that we instinctively know what’s wrong with our kids when they’re not well, so we’ve made things a little easier for you by putting together a guide that covers a host of childhood illnesses and conditions.

You’ll notice that many of the contagious conditions have the same advice with regards to treatment options. That’s simply because these illnesses need to be fought off by the child’s immune system and, in the meantime, all you’re really doing is making them more comfortable and able to fight off the germs naturally. Hang in there! It will be over before you know it, and your baby or toddler will be all the stronger for having gone through it.
