Pediatric Infections - CMC

Pediatric infections are infections that affect children, from newborns to adolescents. They can be caused by a variety of microorganisms, including bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites. Some common pediatric infections include:

  1. Respiratory infections – such as the common cold, flu, bronchiolitis, croup, pneumonia, and tonsillitis.
  2. Gastrointestinal infections – such as gastroenteritis, food poisoning, and hepatitis A.
  3. Skin infections – such as impetigo, cellulitis, and ringworm.
  4. Urinary tract infections – such as bladder infections and kidney infections.
  5. Ear infections – such as otitis media.
  6. Sexually transmitted infections – such as chlamydia, gonorrhea, and genital herpes.

It is important to diagnose and treat pediatric infections promptly to prevent complications and reduce the risk of spreading the infection to others. Treatment may include antibiotics, antiviral medication, antifungal medication, or supportive care such as fluids and rest. Vaccines are also an effective way to prevent some pediatric infections, such as measles, mumps, rubella, chickenpox, and hepatitis B.
