Childhood Diseases Q & A

What is bronchitis?

Bronchitis is an inflammation of the airways of the lungs. The lungs swell up and produce excess mucus, causing a persistent cough, fatigue, and mild body aches. This condition is medically known as acute bronchitis and often called a chest cold. Bronchitis may develop on its own or can follow an upper respiratory infection.

Bronchitis symptoms can last up to three weeks before resolving. Because the inflammation of the airways comes from a viral infection, no treatment will cure it. It just needs to run its course.

It’s important to provide your child with lots of fluids and make sure they get plenty of rest to help fight the infection. To ease breathing, you can use a cool-mist humidifier, especially when your child is sleeping.

What treatments are available for skin rashes?

Skin rashes and infections are common among children, especially those who are school-aged. Frequently being around other children increases their risk of catching a contagious skin condition.

Dr. Rubinstein can diagnose many skin conditions through a physical examination, including ringworm, eczema, warts, hives, and impetigo. He may also perform a skin test to accurately diagnose the cause of the skin condition.

For bacteria-related infections. Dr. Rubinstein may prescribe an oral or topical antibiotic medication. He may also recommend keeping your child away from other children until the condition is no longer contagious.

For other skin diseases, Dr. Rubinstein customizes a treatment plan that may include over-the-counter ointments or creams that help the skin retain moisture and prevent itching and dryness.

How are urinary tract infections diagnosed?

A urinary tract infection (UTI) is the result of a buildup of bacteria in the bladder. UTIs are common in young children and lead to burning and pain during urination. Your child may also urinate more frequently and may have incidents of bed-wetting despite already being potty-trained. Other symptoms of a UTI include discomfort or pain in the abdomen, back, or side.

Dr. Rubinstein may request a urine sample to test for infection. If he diagnoses a UTI, he can prescribe oral antibiotics to clear the infection.
