Children's Health

A child’s well being and health is constantly evolving as he or she reaches different stages of development. It is often difficult to diagnose what is wrong with a child if they are unable to articulate their symptoms of an illness. Children’s health can range from developmental disorders, acne, allergies, or behavioral problems.

Sun safety is very important for both children and adults. The sun can cause damage on foggy or cloudy days as well as on sunny days, and the damage builds up over the years. Your skin does not have to be sunburned to be harmed by the sun’s rays. Try to avoid being out in the sun from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm when the sun’s rays are the strongest.
