How Can I Help My Child When They Are Sick?

If your newborn or infant child is sick, the best course of action is to immediately contact your IM&PC pediatrician to discuss their symptoms and try to diagnose the issue. Babies and children who are older can schedule a sick visit if they are experiencing any of the following symptoms or similar symptoms:

  • High fever
  • Open wounds
  • Diarrhea and chronic vomiting
  • Difficulties with breathing
  • Infections
  • Widespread rash

If you have a child who is suspected of having a broken bone or muscle sprains, you should call our office immediately for guidance. In case of emergencies, our staff at Internal Medicine & Pediatric Clinic is always ready to accommodate children for same-day sick visits. 

Serious emergencies such as loss of consciousness or head injuries require immediate emergency assistance with 911 or an emergency room.

What Diagnostic Testing Services Does IM&PC Offer for Children?

There is nothing more important than accurately diagnosing your child’s pain or condition as soon as possible, which is why Internal Medicine & Pediatric Clinic offers a variety of in-house testing services, such as X-rays and bloodwork. Our on-site lab allows for blood test results on the same day as your visit, allowing our pediatricians to prescribe the proper treatment plan almost immediately.

Our team offers comprehensive physical exams and throat swab tests for a variety of chronic and acute illnesses, including stomach pain and strep throat.

Once a condition has been diagnosed by one of our pediatricians, the child’s family history and medical history are reviewed before the treatment plan is made, ensuring that no further issues might be aggravated with the treatment and promoting the best possible recovery.

The Importance of Regular Check-Ups for Children's Health

Regular check-ups are an essential aspect of maintaining your child's health, even when they appear to be healthy. These visits allow pediatricians to monitor your child's development, identify any potential health problems, and provide age-appropriate care. During these check-ups, pediatricians will assess various aspects of your child's health, including their growth and development, vital signs, and recommended immunizations. Regular check-ups help ensure that your child is healthy, thriving, and on track to reach their full potential.

Understanding Your Child's Growth and Development

As children grow, so do their physical, mental, and emotional abilities. Understanding your child's growth and development milestones is essential for promoting optimal health and detecting any potential developmental delays. For example, pediatricians monitor language development, motor skills, and cognitive abilities at regular check-ups. If a delay is detected, the pediatrician can work with the family to develop an appropriate treatment plan.

Keeping Your Child Healthy: Tips for Preventing Common Childhood Illnesses

Childhood is a critical time for establishing healthy habits that can prevent the onset of many common illnesses. Some basic preventative measures include:

  • regular handwashing
  • staying up-to-date on immunizations; and
  • developing healthy eating habits.

By following these tips, parents can help ensure their children grow up healthy and avoid common illnesses like the flu, colds, and infections.

Immunizations: What Every Parent Needs to Know

Immunizations are essential for protecting children from preventable illnesses like measles, mumps, and whooping cough. These vaccines are safe and effective and have a long record of success. When children receive these vaccinations, they help build herd immunity that protects the entire community. Understanding how vaccines work and the importance of following a recommended schedule is essential to keeping your child healthy.

Common Childhood Illnesses and their Symptoms

Children are susceptible to various illnesses, including ear infections, strep throat, and the stomach flu. Recognizing the signs and symptoms of these conditions can help parents make informed decisions about their child's health. Below are some of the most common childhood illnesses and their symptoms:

  • Common Cold

The common cold is a viral infection that affects the upper respiratory system. Symptoms include a runny or stuffy nose, sneezing, coughing, sore throat, and mild fever. It is highly contagious and often resolves on its own within a week.

  • Ear Infections

Ear infections occur when bacteria or viruses infect the middle ear, leading to pain and discomfort. Symptoms may include ear pain, fever, fluid drainage from the ear, trouble hearing, and irritability in young children. Prompt medical evaluation is essential for proper diagnosis and treatment.

  • Strep Throat

Strep throat is a bacterial infection that causes inflammation and soreness in the throat. It commonly affects school-aged children. Symptoms include a severe sore throat, difficulty swallowing, swollen tonsils, fever, headache, and sometimes a rash.

  • Gastroenteritis

Gastroenteritis, also known as stomach flu, is an inflammation of the stomach and intestines, usually caused by a viral or bacterial infection. Symptoms include diarrhea, vomiting, stomach pain, nausea, and fever. Adequate hydration and rest are essential for recovery.

  • Hand, Foot, and Mouth Disease

Hand, Foot, and Mouth Disease is a viral infection common in young children. It causes sores in the mouth, on the palms of hands, and on the soles of feet, along with fever and general discomfort. It is usually self-limiting, with symptoms improving within a week.

With the help of our pediatricians at IM&PC, we can diagnose and treat these illnesses to help children feel better quickly.
