Infectious diseases are caused by microscopic germs, such as bacteria, viruses or fungi, that get into the body and cause problems. Some, like the flu or COVID-19, spread directly from one person to another.
From infections that happen in the brain to fungal infections of the feet, at Nemours Children's Health, we treat kids head to toe.
Infections may look different in children than they do in adults. Nemours infectious disease pediatricians know the unique signs and symptoms of even the most complex infections in children.
We know it can be stressful when your child isn’t feeling well because of an infection. You can count on Nemours to get the answers you need as soon as possible.
