  • What can you give a toddler for a cold?

    There is no oral medication that works or that is approved for colds in toddlers. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends using Vicks Vapo Rub on the chest of children over one and can also use vicks in the vaporizer. You can also use saline nose drops in the nose to keep it cleared. READ MORE

  • When should I take my child to the doctor for congestion?

    Good afternoon, You should take your child to their doctor if the nasal congestion lasts longer than 10 days or is accompanied by fever over 101.3, significant cough or if the nasal drainage has a bad odor. Over-the-counter oral medications for congestion do not help in young children and can have serious side effects. Using nasal saline drops to rinse out the nose may provide some relief. Vicks vaporub can be used on the chest of children over one year old and in vaporizers for younger kids. READ MORE

  • What helps a toddler with a cough and cold?

    Over-the-counter oral cough and cold medicines do not help and may have unacceptable side effects. Keeping the child comfortable and well hydrated helps them fight any infection. If the nose is stuffy, then normal saline nose drops may help. If it is a dry, irritated cough and they are over one year old, a teaspoon of honey every few hours will help. Honey is a natural anti-oxidant, which will soothe inflammation in the throat. Vicks vaporub applied to the chest of toddlers over a year old will also help cough and congestion. Under one year, the Vicks can be used in a vaporizer. READ MORE

  • How do I know what my baby is allergic to?

    Babies are not born with allergies. If you have a history of allergies in your family your baby is more at risk for developing allergies. You will know that your baby has an allergy to a food if they start developing hives (a rash all over their body that looks like big mosquito bites.) Some foods like tomato sauce or ketchup are irritating to the skin and the area around the baby's mouth may turn red, but that is not a true allergy. If you are concerned about a particular food, then consult your pediatrician. Also more information on allergies in children may be found at Healthychildren.org, a website sponsored by the American Academy of Pediatrics. READ MORE

  • My 2 year old has a rash?

    Without seeing the rash, I cannot be completely sure. The most common rash that presents with blisters on palms of hands and/or soles of feet and/or diaper area is Hand Foot Mouth Disease that is caused by coxsackie virus. Despite the name, it commonly occurs in the diaper area as well. It is contagious, but not dangerous. It may take weeks for the rash to completely fade, but it will eventually completely fade.
