Childhood Illness

For many children, part of being a kid is getting sick. At Family Care Clinic, we have the experience and knowledge to care for almost any illness or injury that your child may encounter. Count on us for the treatment of childhood illness.

Part of the reason why children experience more illness than adults is due to their developing immune systems.

Childhood Illness

While children often experience illnesses that only require at-home treatment or just a single trip to the doctor, there are times when you should seek immediate medical care. This includes:

  • Not drinking enough fluids
  • A high fever
  • Rapid breathing, or trouble breathing
  • Bluish skin color
  • Lethargy
  • Confusion or disorientation
  • Flu symptoms that get better, but then get worse

When in doubt, always call 911 for a medical emergency.
