Pediatrics is a branch of medicine that focuses on the healthcare and medical treatment of infants, children, and adolescents. It is dedicated to the physical, emotional, and social well-being of young individuals from birth up to the age of 18 or sometimes even 21, depending on the country.
Pediatricians are doctors who specialize in pediatrics. They undergo specialized training to diagnose, treat, and prevent a wide range of childhood illnesses, diseases, and injuries. They monitor the growth and development of children, provide vaccinations, and offer guidance to parents and caregivers on various aspects of child health, including nutrition, safety, and behavior.
Some of the common conditions that pediatricians treat include:
- Acute illnesses, such as ear infections, respiratory infections, and stomach bugs
- Chronic illnesses, such as asthma, diabetes, and allergies
- Developmental delays
- Behavioral problems
