Q.

Childhood ailments

Hi Doc

Can you please tell me at what age kids get these ailments. I have a 5 and 3 yr old and neither of them has had any of these. Should I be concerned cause Ive heard its dangerous to get these when you older.

Am i stressing over nothing?

Please advise

Children hardly get any of the childhood illnesses any more because they are immunised against most of them. The only one that is still a problem is chicken pox and a vaccine is now available to immunise children against this as well.
