Kids often have special health needs that differ slightly from those for adults. Certain health conditions are also more likely to affect children than adults, such as head lice. In addition, some medications, while used to treat illnesses and disease in both kids and adults, are used in different doses or different strengths when given to children.
Welcome to the Kids Health Channel on eMedTV. This channel on the eMedTV Web site offers information specifically aimed at children and their unique health needs. It contains articles that provide in-depth information on medical conditions that primarily affect children, such as head lice and pertussis (whooping cough), and also discusses medications that, when given in modified strengths or doses, can be used to treat conditions such as bedwetting.
You can choose to begin your eMedTV kids experience by clicking one of the featured kids links located on this page.

If you do not find the specific kids information that you are looking for in these two locations, use the search box at the top of this page.
