July is Juvenile Arthritis Awareness Month
Children and adolescents can get arthritis, too. It happens when their immune system affects their joints and is called juvenile arthritis. Early signs of juvenile arthritis may be noticed by parents and grandparents as swollen joints, fever, or sudden rash and often are mistaken for normal problems of childhood. But, juvenile arthritis is more serious than that. Ask your child's doctor about juvenile arthritis to learn more.
