Why do we fall ill?


A baby is not able to tell her/his caretakers that she/he is sick. What would help us to find out:

(a) that the baby is sick?

(b) what is the sickness?


(a) The symptoms like vomiting, high temperature, loose motions, and some behavioral changes like improper sleep, continuous crying, etc, can tell us that the baby is sick.

(b) The symptoms can tell us the disease. Like, fever along with vomiting and loose motions indicate that the baby is suffering from diarrhea. To confirm it, we should take the baby to the hospital where the doctor can further investigate and give proper medications for that.
