Dr. Michael G. Martin M.D.'s Expert Contributions
  • Can I give my 12 year old green tea for stress?

    Sure it's safe. But the caffeine in tea might make it difficult for him to get to sleep. READ MORE

  • Is it possible for children to have sleep apnea?

    Yes it is possible for children to have sleep apnea. He could have allergies, which could explain waking up with a dry mouth. He could have enlarged tonsils and/or adenoids, which could cause mouth breathing and disturbed sleep. If this problem is chronic, take him to his doctor for an exam, and possibly have him evaluated by an ENT surgeon and a sleep study center.=20 Good luck! READ MORE

  • How do you care for an underweight child?

    Start out by having her overall health assessed. Make sure her growth is normal. A nutritional assessment with a pediatric dietician can be helpful. Some simple tests can rule out serious problems. Michael G. Martin, MD READ MORE

  • How should I care for a child with a fever?

    It's okay to watch a fever for a few days, as long as your child doesn't appear to be getting worse. If he seems better after his fever goes down, or when you give him some ibuprofen or acetaminophen, then he probably will be fine. If he seems like he is getting worse, or has developed new symptoms, contact his doctor. Michael G. Martin, MD READ MORE

  • How can I maintain my child's health?

    -Car seat/booster seat -Smoke alarms in your home -Proper diet/not too many sweets -Enough rest and enough time for play -Avoid too much screen time/encourage imagination -Spend enough time with your child -Have family dinner away from the TV -Give your child some household chore or responsibility Mike READ MORE

  • Is there any vaccine for tuberculosis?

    Some countries use what is called BCG to help reduce the chances of being infected with TB. It is not currently used in the United States. It can be given in the eventuality that a child has prolonged contact with an infected adult. Most practitioners do not give this vaccine. It is used in countries where the prevalence of TB is very high. Michael G. Martin, MD READ MORE

  • How long does it take for a double ear infection to go away?

    Normally, it takes a day or two for the pain to resolve, but can take up to a week for the infection to be cured. We usually use from 5 to 10 days of antibiotic therapy when we treat ear infections. Most actually resolve without therapy. Dr. M READ MORE

  • My 6 year old has a speech problem. What do I do?

    Contact your local school district and request an evaluation. School districts are required to provide services for children in their catchment area. Michael G. Martin, MD READ MORE

  • How much sleep does a baby need in a day?

    Two-month-old babies normally sleep 16 to 20 hours a day. This is not to say that this is all at a time, or that the baby doesn't awaken frequently to feed. The tendency is often enough to disturb the sleep of the caretakers. If the baby really hardly sleeps, perhaps a sleep study arranged through the pediatrician may be in order. I am assuming the baby is healthy, is on no medications, and, if nursing, the mother is on no medications. I am also assuming that the baby has been checked for illness and injury. Michael G. Martin, MD READ MORE

  • What can I do to help ease my child's asthma?

    I'm not sure what you mean by having tried everything, but as a former sufferer, I can say: 1. Consult a pediatric pulmonologist and a pediatric allergist. 2. Don't smoke. 3. Supervise her medication daily. READ MORE

  • What can I do to get rid of chickenpox scars for my little one?

    In general, there is nothing you can do now for the scars. Many times, the scars will fade with time (6-9 months). Those that don't can be improved cosmetically when the child is older by a cosmetic dermatologist or plastic surgeon. READ MORE

  • Is it okay to feed cheese and butter to kids?

    Cheese is part of a healthy diet, and butter, in small amounts, is fine, too. READ MORE

  • My daughter has dark circles under her eyes and she is just 3 years old. Why is this happening?

    If she seems healthy and is fair complected, it may mean nothing. It can mean allergies, nasal congestion as from a cold, etc. If she seems unhealthy to you, she should have a check-up. Michael G. Martin, MD READ MORE

  • Can watching a phone screen for too long cause any problems in my child?

    Physically, it will not cause any harm. I worry about children who watch too much "fill in the blank" TV, iPad, computer, iPhone, etc. I think it retards social development, so I think it should be limited. And don't let her watch alone. Michael G. Martin, MD READ MORE

  • How often should I get a complete body scan done for my son?

    Not knowing what the heart problem was, it is hard to know. In general, the center where the surgery was performed will follow him up if requested, and make recommendations as to how often this should be done. Good luck! Michael G. Martin, MD READ MORE

  • Why is my child so hyper?

    "Hyper" is a relative term. All children are "hyper" at times. They often don't know how to contain their excitement, their frustration, their emotions, etc. Also, "hyper" is in the eye of the beholder. I don't know how many children you have, but often, a parent's exposure to young children is quite limited. The first thing I would do is have her assessed by someone who sees lots of children. Your pediatrician, for one; a preschool teacher; an early childhood psychologist. This may give you a fresh perspective on your own child. READ MORE

  • Is it okay if my daughter missed certain milestones?

    Gee it sounds a little premature to say she has missed her milestones. I would be surprised if she were crawling. It's a little behind for not rolling over but it's also important what else she's doing. Take her to her doctor! READ MORE

  • 6 month old not getting enough ounces

    Gee, it doesn't sound to me like anything to worry about. I am assuming your baby is growing and gaining weight as she should. When babies begin taking solid foods, they frequently cut back on their formula. This can be a good thing, as we don't want them to get too fat! Keep in mind, we were all nervous when we were first time parents. If your baby is happy, I think you are doing most things right. Regards, Dr. MM READ MORE

  • Until how many years should a child be given Polio vaccines?

    I am not sure where you live, as we have not given the oral polio vaccine in the United States for some time. It is used on other continents. The usual schedule here in the United states is 2 doses of the injectable polio vaccine in the first year, one in the second year, and a fourth at entry into school. READ MORE

  • My daughter sits in a W position most of the time. Is it really bad for her?

    I'm sorry this response was so late. I just found it In my email box. We used to caution against allowing children to sit this way, but it seems that the position doesn't have any long-term effects on bone growth. READ MORE
