If you had to choose, which disease would the nurse explain is most common in toddlers? It’s a simple question, but I’ll give you a hint. It’s not the “terrible twos.”
Which disease is most common in toddlers? Depending on where you live, it could be different. And in no way is this a trick question like the kind your evil twin would ask you when she comes over to visit and pretends to be you. Plus, if you’ve been a sick kid, you’re probably not reading this article anyway so let’s move on!
Which disease is most common in toddlers?
The nurse would explain that the most common disease in toddlers is chickenpox.
Chickenpox is a very contagious viral infection that causes raised red spots to appear all over the body. These spots turn into blisters, which then crust over and fall off. The disease lasts about a week, and it’s most common in children between the ages of two and ten years old.
The nurse would also explain that chickenpox can affect anyone who hasn’t had it before even if they’ve been vaccinated. The vaccine doesn’t always work, so it’s important for parents to know that their children could still get sick even if they’ve been vaccinated.
According to the Center for Disease Control, toddlers are most at risk of contracting the following diseases:
– Rubella (also known as German measles)
The best thing you can do is make sure her immune system stays strong and healthy. Here are some tips that will help:
– Make sure she gets enough sleep. She needs at least 12 hours a day and more if possible.
– Have her eat a healthy diet full of fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Avoid processed foods and sugary treats as much as possible.
– Keep her away from germs as much as possible by keeping her home when other kids are sick or taking her out when others have had their shots.
– Keep your house clean by wiping down surfaces with antibacterial wipes and washing hands frequently throughout the day (especially before meals).
