Pediatrics Minor Illnesses and Injuries

Newborns and children in their early years are prone to various illnesses and injuries. Children grow rapidly during the early years as they are not yet fully developed both physically and mentally. Even the immune system is not completely developed, and hence preventive measures must be taken to prevent minor illnesses and injuries in children.

Common illnesses:

Some of the most common paediatric minor illnesses are:

    • Common cold: young children are often affected by the common cold (some children get common cold up to eight times a year). Symptoms include runny nose, fever, nasal congestion, headache, etc.
    • Sinusitis: in children, bacterial infection leading to inflammation of the sinuses is also common. Antibiotics may be required for the treatment of sinusitis in children.
    • Sore throat: sore throat is another common paediatric illness. It is often painful and causes difficulty in swallowing food or water.
    • Ear pain: another common and painful condition common among children is ear pain. It can have multiple causes including ear infection, infection of the skin, sinusitis, etc.
    • Urinary tract infections: if your child complains of burning sensation while urination, or frequently urinates, he or she might be suffering from urinary tract infections.
    • Skin conditions: bacterial infection or allergic reactions are quite common in children leading to rashes, redness in the skin, itching, etc.

Childhood injuries:

Besides illnesses, injuries are very common among growing children. Children may get injured while learning to stand or walk, running, playing sports, etc. A fall or accident can also cause injuries in children. Usually, these injuries only cause minor cracks or cuts, but sometimes it can lead to something serious (like a bone fracture) and require immediate medical attention.

  • Paediatric illnesses and injuries are quite common and are usually minor. However, it is highly recommended that parents take their child to a paediatrician for a complete evaluation of the illness as these common symptoms can also be a sign of some underlying condition.
