Pediatric Complaints

  1. Common Cold: Children often experience frequent colds due to their developing immune systems, making them susceptible to viral infections that cause symptoms like runny nose, cough, sore throat, and mild fever.

  2. Ear Infections: Middle ear infections, known as otitis media, are common in young children. They often occur after a cold and can cause symptoms such as ear pain, fever, irritability, and difficulty hearing.

  3. Allergies: Many children have allergies, which can be triggered by various allergens like pollen, dust mites, pet dander, or certain foods. Allergic reactions may manifest as sneezing, nasal congestion, itchy eyes, skin rashes, or wheezing.

  4. Asthma: Asthma is a chronic condition characterized by inflammation and narrowing of the airways, leading to recurrent episodes of wheezing, coughing, shortness of breath, and chest tightness. It can be triggered by allergens, respiratory infections, exercise, or cold air.

  5. Gastroenteritis: Also known as the stomach flu, gastroenteritis is an infection of the digestive tract typically caused by viruses or bacteria. It leads to symptoms like diarrhea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and fever.

  6. Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD): ADHD is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects children's ability to pay attention, control impulsive behaviors, and regulate their activity level. It can impact academic performance and social interactions.

  7. Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD): ASD is a developmental disorder characterized by difficulties in social interaction, communication, and repetitive behaviors. Children with ASD may have varying degrees of impairment in these areas.

  8. Eczema: Eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis, is a chronic inflammatory skin condition. It causes dry, itchy, and red patches on the skin, commonly affecting the face, elbows, and knees.

  9. Sleep Disorders: Sleep problems such as difficulty falling asleep, frequent nighttime awakenings, or excessive daytime sleepiness can occur in children. Conditions like sleep apnea, insomnia, or restless legs syndrome may contribute to these disturbances.

  10. Developmental Delays: Some children may experience delays in reaching developmental milestones, such as walking, talking, or social skills. These delays can be caused by various factors and may require intervention and therapy.
