Medical Information & Forms
Meningitis is an inflammation of the covering of the brain and spinal cord. It can be caused by viruses, parasites, fungi, and bacteria. Viral meningitis is most common and the least serious. Meningitis caused by bacteria is the most likely form of the disease to cause serious, long-term complications. It is an uncommon disease but requires urgent treatment with antibiotics to prevent permanent damage or death
Lice are small grayish-white insects, 1/16 to 1/8 inches long, shaped like a football. They don’t usually carry disease, but can cause your child and family discomfort, stress and sometimes skin irritation. Children get head lice or Pediculosis (pe·dic·u·lo·sis) almost as much as the common cold. Millions get it at least one time, once a year. Children get lice more than teens or adults and, ANY child can get head lice! It does not matter where they live or go to school; how much money they have; or, if boy or girl, black, white or brown.
Asthma is a disease that may cause serious breathing problems. You might have asthma if you have any coughing, wheezing (whistling noise), tightness in your chest or become short of breathe. If you have asthma there are many things (triggers) that may make it harder for you to breathe. Asthma cannot be cured. Even if your asthma is not “acting up”, you STILL have asthma. If you have asthma you’re not alone – the good news is it can be controlled! A person does not out grow asthma and it may develop at any age.
