If it is diagnosed by a physician (flu diagnostic test positive), he could be treated by anti-viral medications within 2 days of onset of fever (may be three), which may shorten the course of symptoms by 3-5 days. Otherwise, rest, fever control, and hydration should be provided. Kadan Sau, MD READ MORE
This is an unusual time for flu infection. It should be safe enough for him to contact others after being fever-free without fever medications for 48 hours. Thank you, Kadan Sau, MD READ MORE
In a 10 Y.O., you can watch his fever for three days only if he is eating/drinking fairly, voiding well and does not have any ready explanation for fever, e.g., exposure to certain illnesses and it stays below 103* F. You should still place a call to his physician. READ MORE

My 2 year old daughter has been detected with scabies and medication doesn't look like it's helping yet. What should I do?
Scabies treatment is simple and effective. The commonly prescribed medication usually takes one application. The bumps may continue to itch for several more days, but will quickly subside. I guess either the diagnosis or the treatment is in error. READ MORE

My 1 month old baby sleeps for long hours and even doesn’t wake up for feeds unless woken up. Is it normal?
A month baby may sleep 12-18 hrs/day. He will cry when he is hungry. As he gets older, his awake/sleep ratio gets better. So, most likely, what you are experiencing is quite normal. But I would nudge him to alertness and nurse if he is sleeping more than 6 hours during daytime. READ MORE
Your statement of your son having "small eyes" can be very relative. To see if it is of concern, one must examine him personally. His pediatrician should be the first evaluator. READ MORE
Not only they are not safe, they simply do not help.

Also, certain coughs are desirable as it helps expectorate or helps in diagnosis. READ MORE
