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.

Bronchiolitis is a common viral respiratory illness that affects infants. Any number of different viruses can cause bronchiolitis, but the end result is the same: inflammation, swelling and mucus production in the small airways of the lungs called the bronchioles. Bronchiolitis typically occurs during the first two years of life, most commonly in infants from 3-6 months old, and mostly occurs during the winter months. The virus most commonly associated with bronchiolitis is Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV), which accounts for approximately half of all cases.
