Irritability in Infants

Detecting signs of sickness in infants can be difficult, as they are unable to verbally communicate their symptoms and sites of discomfort; however, infants have plenty of other ways to convey when something is wrong.

With osteomyelitis, parents may notice increased vocalization, avoidance of touch or sounds, and crying out when the affected area is touched. Osteomyelitis is a serious condition in infants, so if it is suspected, medical treatment should be sought out immediately.
