Although the term fracture may sound serious, it is just another name for a broken bone. As you probably remember from your own childhood, fractures are very common. In fact, they are the fourth most common injury among children under age six. Falls cause most of the fractures in this age group, but the most serious bone breaks usually result from car crashes.

A broken bone in a child is different from one in an adult, because young bones are more flexible and have a thicker covering, which makes them better able to absorb shock. Children’s fractures rarely require surgical repair. They usually just need to be kept free of movement, most often through the use of a molded cast.

Children especially need to be protected from the sun's burning rays, since most sun damage occurs in childhood. Like other burns, sunburn will leave the skin red, warm, and painful. In severe cases, it may cause blistering, fever, chills, headache, and a general feeling of illness. The American Academy of Pediatrics offers tips to keep children safe in the sun.

If you're the parent of young children, the phrase "Winter is coming!" is almost as dreaded as it is on the television show Game of Thrones. True, you don't have to worry about sudden attacks by zombie armies, but you do have to be concerned about your infants and young kids being exposed to more than the usual number of health risks. Not all of these risks will require a visit to your normal Pediatrician or to a Pediatric Urgent Care center, but it's good to be aware that there is a higher likelihood of respiratory illness during the Winter than at other times of the year.

Parents' first reaction to the appearance of a new clinic in their area that provides "after hours" urgent care for children and thus an alternative to inconvenient (and often very expensive) visits to the nearest Emergency Room is usually one of relief. "Finally," they say. "Why didn't anyone think of this sooner?"
