Anemia

Anemia is one of the children diseases  that appears because the child doesn’t eat, or he eats only aliments with a decreased energetic value. However, anemia could have other causes, such as crowded houses where the air is affected, but it can also appear at children that don’t eat fruit and vegetables, or other aliments that are rich in vitamins and minerals.

Appendicitis

This is one of the children diseases appearing for children aged more than 5 years. The symptoms are: fever, nausea, and pains in the right side of the abdomen. Of course, a medic must see the child, and a surgery intervention is required in the majority of cases. Don’t worry, as the intervention is simple, and the child could resume normal activities in less than one week.

If you don’t want to appeal to surgery, you will have to impose a strict diet for your child, based on fruits, lemonade and yogurt. This regime is also needed for the first days after the intervention.

Features

Hives

Sometimes, the mother observes inflammations of pink color on the skin, having different sizes and itching. The skin of the child looks like it was nettled, and this eruption might appear on any part of the body. Sometimes, the rashes might be numerous, and the apparition of those problems might also be accompanied by nausea and diarrhea.

The most common cause of those hives is food poisoning caused by fish meat, eggs and altered meat, but this problem might also appear because of some medicines.

Lack of appetite

Some children just don’t want to eat. This is a major problem, as it would affect the growing process of the child, leaving him or she exposed to diseases, because of the low resistance of the organism to viruses and diseases. A child that suffers of this problem must not be forced to eat. Consult the doctor as soon as the problem appears, as it is important to detect if the cause is psychological or physical. In some cases, it might only be a protest of the child, but if the condition has a physical reason, it is important to treat the respective problem. In any case, don’t leave this problem untreated saying that the child “will eat when he is hungry”. If you don’t want to go to the doctor, at least talk to the child, and see if something is bothering him or if he is feeling ill, and try to detect what type of children diseases he suffers from.
