Pediatricians specialize in the treatment of infants, children and teenagers. Their training equips them to handle all of a child’s health care needs, including growth and development, detecting and treating illness, nutrition, immunizations, injuries and physical fitness. The American Academy of Pediatrics urges you to call your pediatrician immediately if your child has any of the following symptoms: bleeding that won’t stop; poisoning; seizures; difficulty breathing; high fever; head injury with loss of consciousness, vomiting or poor skin color; blood in the urine; bloody diarrhea or diarrhea that won’t go away; sudden lack of energy or loss of mobility.
