Every parent is concerned about their child’s health, whether they are at home, in school or in daycare. That’s why, when it comes to childhood illnesses, it’s good to be aware of the common issues, symptoms and treatments.

Dr. Abdulla Ghori, a pediatrician in The MetroHealth System, works in an urgent care setting two half days a week. Based on his observations, the most common reasons children come to the clinic differ based on the seasons. Summer ailments are different from winter ones, and fall complaints differ from both.

Generally, the most common symptoms include a cold, runny nose, a cough, fever, diarrhea, vomiting, a rash on a child’s body, eczema, abdominal pain, ear pain, asthma flares, seasonal allergies, food allergies, bug bites, trauma or falls, he said. Then comes more chronic conditions like behavioral health — nail biting, fighting in school, hitting a sibling or talking back to a parent. Doctors are also seeing child obesity, kids who are unable to focus on their studies, as well as kids who are hyperactive, or too fidgety.
