That looks like an infection. A 6-day-old with that should be seen by a doctor. READ MORE
If she can swallow a capsule, it should work fine. As heme iron is absorbed more efficiently, you could start at half the prescribed dose, but you would need bloodwork to confirm that she was responding to the treatment. You should discuss this with her doctor. READ MORE
I think your weight is something different. I will assume you mean 63.5 kg, not 635. If you want to build up muscle, I would probably consume more calories rather than fewer. Muscles need calories to grow and to work. Mike READ MORE
I would say that they can cry for reasons that we don’t know. READ MORE
It is either a nightmare, or a night terror. The difference is whether a person remembers the dream in the morning. Kind of tough to know which in a baby. If the baby awakens and appears distressed, comfort it. Otherwise, don’t worry about it. Mike READ MORE
Yes, it can. Mike READ MORE
Abdominal pain, sometimes fever, nausea, and vomiting. Pain starts around the belly button, then moves to lower right side of the belly. Mike READ MORE
Has he been tested for Covid-19 yet? You should contact your doctor and have him evaluated. Although Covid-19 is most common now, there are many causes of fever, including some things that are not infections. READ MORE
Many things! Mostly, chest pain in children is either muscular or skeletal, but it can signal heart disease, just as in adults, digestive issues like reflux, lung problems like pneumonia or pneumothorax. It is a problem I see often in the office. Get it checked out! READ MORE
Rhinovirus, RSV, adenovirus, influenza virus, parainfluenza virus, and enterovirus are some. Mike READ MORE
Take the proper precautions as recommended by the CDC and local public health departments everywhere for yourself and your baby will be safe. Mike READ MORE
You can’t really drain the sinuses, but irrigating them might help. Get a sinus irrigation kit at the drugstore and follow the directions. It may be difficult for him to cooperate, but if he can, it helps a lot. Mike READ MORE
It depends on the age of your child. With infants, I usually suggest some saline nose drops. With an older child who might have allergies, I sometimes recommend Zyrtec syrup. Older still, I might suggest some Flonase nasal spray. Your child’s doctor can help you. Mike READ MORE
Babies usually gain 1 1/2 to 2 pounds per month from birth, so I would guess about 6 pounds over birth weight. Am I close? Mike READ MORE
ADHD, attention deficient hyperactive disorder, is a common, but difficult disorder to treat. The treatment in usually multimodal, that is, it involves support from your child's school, your child's physician, his or her teacher, and you. I frequently, but not always, involve the use of medication. READ MORE
If he has teeth and is injuring himself, no. Otherwise, it's normal behavior. READ MORE
Many things can cause a child to wheeze. Asthma, viral lower respiratory tract infections, aspiration of a foreign body, tumors...the list is long. Your child's doctor would be a good place to start so you can figure out what is causing his wheezing. READ MORE
Same as it is for anyone else. Fevers make you uncomfortable, but are helpful to the immune response to rid the body of infection. READ MORE
Many pharmacies offer flu shots for kids, but keep in mind, the experience level of pharmacists varies widely. I would rather have a shot given by a nurse with years of experience, rather than a pharmacist who had a one hour in-service. READ MORE
Any virus can cause fever. Are you sure it's a virus? If he seems very sick, you should contact his doctor. READ MORE
