Pediatric infectious diseases refer to communicable illnesses prevalent in children. When an infant experiences persistent sickness due to a pathogen, an infectious disease specialist possesses the necessary expertise to accurately diagnose and treat the child, spanning from infancy to adolescence. Our bodies host a plethora of microorganisms, which usually pose no harm and even offer benefits. Yet, specific conditions can trigger harmful infections. Some diseases spread person-to-person, while others come from insects, animals, or contaminated consumables. Symptoms vary based on the responsible organism but commonly encompass fatigue and fever.
