Children Often get Sick, Recognize the Causes and How to Handle Them

Lately many parents are busy consulting doctors because of the increasing frequency of diseases in children.

Finding the baby sick certainly makes parents very worried and anxious. Especially if the baby is sick more often than other children his age. 

Reporting from the Times Of India page on Monday, September 19, 2022, the following causes children to get sick often.

We all know that respiratory infections, gastrointestinal infections, typhoid, malaria and dengue fever are common during the rainy season.

According to Dr. Senior Consultant. SRCC Children's Hospital managed by Narayana Health, although infections are rampant during the rainy season,

this year seems to be different with the surge of several viruses at the same time. "Staying indoors during COVID prevents us from normal viral infections.

There are concerns that this may have reduced our immunity and could lead to a spike in infections this year," he said.

Dr. Vineet Kwatra, Senior Consultant, Pediatrics, Medanta Hospital said that currently his party found children coming with high fever, cough and runny nose.

They also come with high fever that lasts for more than 5-7 days which no doubt becomes typhoid and some cases of dengue fever.

"This time we also saw cases of Scrub typhus, where children had high fevers that lasted more than 5-7 days and did not recover even with regular antibiotics," he said.
