Infection in Babies

Fighting infectious diseases today is much easier than in the past. Proper hygiene and proper precautions, along with numerous vaccines and rapidly advancing medical technology, help prevent many infections. However, a newborn baby has limited ability to prevent and fight infectious diseases. Special care may be needed for babies who develop an infection before, during, or after birth.

Infections in babies require clinical care by a doctor or other health care professional. Listed in the directory below is some additional information regarding infections, for which we have provided a brief overview.

Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV)

Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)

Cytomegalovirus (CMV)

Group B Streptococcus
