Causes of Viral Syndrome
There are at least 900 different kinds of viruses that can infect human being. Every human being gets infected with at least 200 different kinds of viruses in their lifetime. A child being tender and is building up his immunity gets affected more frequently. Most of the time we might not be able to tell you exactly which type of virus has infected your child.
