Stop cellulitis in its tracks
Skin infections can lead to a serious condition called cellulitis. It is important to try to prevent skin infections from happening, and to know what to do when you or a family member does have a skin infection. A prompt visit to your GP will lead to a diagnosis and appropriate treatment. Visit our Skin Infections page to find out more.
Sore throats can lead to rheumatic fever
Sometimes a sore throat will be caused by the streptococcus bug that causes rheumatic fever. If left untreated, a "strep" throat can lead to permanent damage to a child's heart valves. Make sure your child sees a GP for that sore throat. Visit our Rheumatic Fever page to find out more and download our Rheumatic Fever brochure, in five different languages.

New Zealand experiences an outbreak of whooping cough every three to five years. The latest outbreak began in August 2011 and since then more than 11,200 cases have been reported.
Read more about how Mrs Davies gathered her daughter, son-in-law and his brothers, her husband, her son and son's partner at East Tamaki Healthcare's Bairds Rd clinic in Otara to vaccinate them herself.
