Booking & Clinic Details

Some childhood infectious diseases are highly contagious.

Although good hygiene practices can help prevent illness and infection, children are often at greater risk of contracting certain ailments because their immune system is still developing.

Whether it’s for seasonal viruses, skin infections, diarrhea, congenital infections, chronic infections, immune deficiency, or autoimmune diseases, you can count on us to provide your child with the care they need in a friendly environment designed with their comfort in mind. Our professionals are specially trained to assess, diagnose and treat children of all ages. Our dedicated team of experts collaborate with other specialists in our large network to provide the best possible care for your children.

The following is a non-exhaustive list of childhood infectious diseases:

  • Gastroenteritis
  • Bronchiolitis
  • Erythema infectiosum (also known as fifth disease)
  • Influenza
  • Infectious conjunctivitis
  • Chickenpox
  • Otitis
  • Pertussis
  • Measles
  • Pneumonia
  • Meningitis
  • Scarlet fever

What happens during a consultation with an infectious disease specialist?

During your consultation, your child’s doctor will ask you about their symptoms and medical history, and perform a physical examination. They may prescribe additional tests or, if necessary, refer your child to another pediatric health specialist.

Your doctor will also discuss your child’s treatment and follow-up plan with you.
