Dr. Barnett Mennen, MD's Expert Contributions
Fevers alone are never a reason to take a child to the hospital. Increased body temperatures are a defense mechanism against invading viruses or bacteria. It all depends upon the symptoms, and the hospital should not be your first thought. They are not good places to be unless you absolutely have to go there. Your pediatrician should be your first thought, and urgent care second. A phone call is all you may need. READ MORE
Acute onset abdominal pain is usually viral gastroenteritis ("stomach flu"), but longer-term abdominal pain can be any number of things. What I would do is an elimination diet -- take away dairy first (lactose intolerance) and if after 10 days no change, eliminate gluten. READ MORE
Lukewarm sponge bath. But if he starts shivering, dry him off and put a light robe or PJs on him. READ MORE
There are two things we look for when examining for head lice: 1) the lice themselves. They are about the size of a sesame seed. Wear thin rubber gloves and carefully push the hairs apart one area at a time and see if any are crawling. 2) The "nits" or eggs. These are small spherical white things attached to the hair close to the base. Dandruff or dead skin will shake off easily, but the nits are stuck. READ MORE
Not only do babies who are fed cow's milk formula thrive, but those on a soy milk formula do as well! Don't be bullied into feeling guilty about not wanting to nurse -- do what you are comfortable with. One thing you CAN do to make bottle feeding more like breastfeeding is, when practical, remove your top so the baby feels the warmth of your skin as s/he feeds. READ MORE
It could be any number of things, but drug use must be considered. READ MORE
It may be part of the autistic spectrum...but other conditions can also cause these types of behaviors. I would recommend testing by a qualified psychologist trained for the testing of children. Your pediatrician or family practitioner can certainly point you in the right direction. READ MORE
Strep throat spreads by direct touching between kids/adults or even from surfaces touched by those either carrying the strep bacteria or infected. Strep is not as contagious as viral infections, and there are individual aspects to personal immunity that makes some people more or less susceptible. Repeated strep infections need to be dealt with a bit differently. Barnett Mennen, MD READ MORE
