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.
