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.

“Hives," “welts," and urticaria are all terms used to describe a rash that typically consists of red, itchy, and slightly raised skin lesions. They appear suddenly, tend to coalesce, and then resolve after a few hours. This is a very common problem – nearly 20% of individuals will experience at least one episode of urticaria in their lifetime. And because their appearance can be dramatic, they are often a source of concern for the parents of affected children.

Febrile seizures are convulsions brought on by a fever in infants or small children. During a febrile seizure, a child often loses consciousness and shakes, moving limbs on both sides of the body. Less commonly, the child becomes rigid or has twitches in only a portion of the body, such as an arm or a leg, or on the right or the left side only. Most febrile seizures last a minute or two, although some can be as brief as a few seconds with others lasting for more than 15 minutes.
