Common Illnesses in Children
There are some illnesses that children tend to catch experience more frequently as they grow. They are typically contagious and pass from child-to-child at school, daycare, or the playground. Some of the most common illnesses that we see children for include:
Gastroenteritis (stomach flu)
Conjunctivitis (pink eye)
Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV)
If your child is suffering with any of these common illnesses and you feel it’s time to bring them in for an appointment, contact our doctor’s office at NxT Step Pediatrics in Frisco today.
How to Determine If It’s Time to Visit the Doctor
Many times, children suffering from common illnesses such as a cold or the flu can be cared for at home. However, sometimes these same illnesses can require a trip to the doctor’s office. A few signs to look for when your child is sick to determine whether or not to bring them into the pediatrician's office include:
- High or persistent fever that does not respond to medicine
- Trouble breathing
- Lethargy or extreme fatigue
- Headache that doesn’t go away
- Persistent cough
- Symptoms that don’t get better or worsen
- Chest pain
- Neck stiffness
If you notice any of these symptoms in your child, or other symptoms that worry you, don’t hesitate to reach out to NxT Step Pediatrics. Contact us to learn more about our same-day appointments.
