It’s important for us as parents or guardian to have proper knowledge, information or reasons, on why we really need the services or attention of a pediatrician.

I find so many branches of medicine very interesting, especially the field of pediatrics which has to do with the care of infants, adolescents, children, between the ages of 0-18 years of age until the age of 21 as the case may be in some places like the United States. I love pediatricians; they’re doing a great job.

I bet you; by the time you’re done reading this article, and discovering the fantastic job these professionals are doing daily, you would so much fall in love with the profession.

Pediatricians are basically responsible for treating, diagnosing and examining children with variety of illnesses and injuries. They administer many immunizations available to prevent children from hepatitis B, polio, measles, mumps and diphtheria.

Routine check-ups are also part of the pediatrician tasks, with the aim objective of monitoring children’s growth and development especially from birth to childhood stage.

Another interesting part of the duty revolves around working with patients ‘parents or guardians by educating them on how to provide proper care for their children, including vital tips on improving personal hygiene, promoting regular exercise, improving eating habit.

When Do You Need a Pediatrician?

  1. During fever

Fever aren’t dangerous to the brain, unless they’re 160 degrees, fever simply means that the body system is trying to fight an infection, but if the fever is accompanied by rash, seizures, vomiting, trouble breathing or diarrhea, then you need attention of a pediatrician.

  1. Stomach flu and Intestinal Problem

Cough, cold, vomiting and diarrhea are common illness associated with intestinal issues in kids, usually cause by a virus. So when your child is having any of these symptoms, please do not hesitate to visit the pediatric or get the attention of a pediatrician.

  1. Constipation

If your baby is more than 4 weeks old and has the following symptoms like: not pooing for a week, feeling feverish, lethargic, uninterested in feeding, vomiting, and has a swollen belly, make haste to visit the pediatrician or pediatric.

  1. Rashes

Rashes are caused by infections, hormones, and irritations from soap, wet diapers and are associated with fever, they look like bruises, so when you see all these in your child, visit the pediatric.

  1. Respiratory Problems, Cough and Cold

Coughs and cold are really worrisome for real, the only time you will need a pediatrician’s attention is when they’re so severe, with these signs; constant occurrence, severe pains, last longer for two weeks, and when it keeps a child awake at night.
