Even a healthy child can get sick. It is crucial to know the symptoms of the common illnesses that children often suffer, along with the prevention and treatment of those illnesses. There are various common childhood conditions such as tonsillitis and ear infections, which may be unavoidable.

Some of these preventable diseases are infectious diseases, and tooth decay, which are preventable through ongoing oral/dental care and fluoride treatments.
