Hypoglycemia refers to a condition in which one’s blood sugar levels are too low. Low blood sugar can be dangerous to your child, especially if he or she struggles with diabetes. Hypoglycemia typically sets on very suddenly, so be sure to know your child’s warning signs. Learn more about the symptoms of low blood sugar and how to react from this video.

Common Childhood Illnesses

Posted on 1/24/2012

Childhood Illnesses

During childhood, the immune system is put through its first grueling tests. Below are some of the most common illnesses that can affect your child:

  • Allergies and asthma can be caused or exasperated by the pollen, dust, pollution, and pet dander that surround your child every day. While many children are unaffected by these triggers, they can make some children absolutely miserable. Allergies may cause symptoms associated with the eyes, ears, nose, mouth, lungs, skin, intestines, and may also lead to asthma attacks. Asthma is localized to the lungs and can cause difficulty breathing.
  • Ringworm is a skin condition characterized by a ring-shaped red, scaly rash. While many are misled by the name of this condition, ringworm is not actually caused by a worm; rather, ringworm is cause by fungi. Athlete’s foot and jock itch are types of ringworm, but there is also ringworm of the scalp, nails, and body. Ringworm can often be treated with an oral anti-fungal medication or a topical anti-fungal agent.
  • Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are very common in young children. When bacteria enter the urinary tract from the skin near the urethra or from the bloodstream, an infection can result in any part of the urinary tract. UTIs can cause fever, pain during urination, abdominal pain, and other symptoms depending on the severity of the infection. The symptoms may not be obvious to the child or to the parents, so these infections can sometimes go untreated.
  • Ear infections are the most common reason that parents bring their child to the doctor—75% of children will have at least one ear infection before they reach the age of three. These infections are the result of bacteria that cause inflammation of the middle ear, resulting in pain, fever, problems with balance, or trouble sleeping.

If your child is ill and is in need of specialized, expert care, contact the professionals at Sunrise Children’s Hospital. We are committed to providing the community of Las Vegas with the highest-quality pediatric care possible. Contact us at (702) 731-5437 to learn more about our services.
