Infectious diseases can be caused by a wide variety of bacteria, viruses, and parasites… and can spread quickly among groups of children. While many common conditions are mild, others can have very serious side effects – so it’s important to see a doctor if your child’s symptoms are severe, if your child is unvaccinated, or if you believe your child has been exposed to a serious infectious disease.

Ensuring your child’s vaccinations are up to date is one of the most important ways of preventing and controlling common diseases including:

  • Chicken pox
  • Flu
  • Measles
  • Meningitis
  • Mumps
  • Whooping Cough
  • Rubella (German Measles)
  • Tetanus

At Crystal Run, our pediatric specialists can also treat these diseases and a wide variety of other infectious diseases and conditions, such as:

  • Skin conditions like ringworm, scabies, or swimmer’s itch
  • MRSA (a contagious staph infection)
  • Lyme disease
  • Pink eye (conjunctivitis)
  • Strep throat
  • Bacterial gastrointestinal disorders that cause severe diarrhea or vomiting
  • Pneumonia
  • Pediatric HIV/AIDS
