Childhood illnesses

Most of the common illnesses your child may develop are a natural part of growing up.

If your baby is younger than 6 months old, it is important to remember that they may be affected differently by common illnesses compared to older children.

The advice that you receive from your healthcare professional could be different for babies younger than 6 months old.

For further advise please contact your health visitor, GP, Pharmacist NHS 111 for non-emergency for medical help advise or 999 on emergency.
