15 month old child and covid?
Yes, just because you all have already been sharing the same space and wouldn’t want to risk someone else getting sick from COVID. Although, the child may be negative now, those results could change. So it’s best for everyone who have shared the space together already to stay together during the quarantine process. READ MORE
It depends on where you are taking it. I’m making the assumption that since the child is 15 years old, this is an oral temperature which would make it a normal temperature. READ MORE
Is masturbation harmful?
No, it’s not. However, if you are aggressive during the process, you could potentially harm the blood vessels in the penis which could lead to blood in the urine and also a sore penis. READ MORE
It sounds more like a syncopated episode (passing out) and you need to see your primary care physician for that. READ MORE
My son has a swollen testicle?
You need to take the child to the ER because medical conditions that would cause the testicles to swell are sometimes medical emergencies that require surgery. READ MORE
What are the pros and cons of the flu shot?
One of the pros of getting the flu shot, is that you are attempting to protect your child from an illness that could have a detrimental effect on his health. One of the cons of getting the flu shot, is that the vaccine is created from the strain of the virus from the previous year, so depending on the mutations of the strain of the current year, its effectiveness can be low. READ MORE
At what age is a child fully vaccinated?
Usually by 17 years old. The initial series of shots are 2 months, 4months 6 months, 12-15 months, some offices 2 years, 4-5 years old (for entry into school), 11-12 years old (Tdap, MCV4, HPV), 16 years old (Men B- 2 doses), MCV4 booster shot is 5 years after the first one. This is assuming all of the vaccinations are given on time. READ MORE
Why would a child's neck hurt after sleeping?

What is a safe cold medicine for children?
The safest cold medications for a 3 year are Zarbees or Hylands brand. You can also use nasal saline drops to thin the mucus out in the nose. Some parents will also use aromatherapy with peppermint in it to help with congestion. READ MORE
How long should you stay home with the flu?
Your child will need to stay home between 24-48 hours after being treated. If tamiflu isn’t given, then your child will need to stay home for 5-7 days. READ MORE
Does my child need an antibiotic for strep throat?
Your child will need antibiotics after being diagnosed with strep throat because the pneumococcal bacteria that causes the strep throat can have several complications such as scarlet fever, arthritis, heart infection. READ MORE
How do you know when babies are teething?
When babies start teething, they can have a low grade fever (up to 101), drooling, and swollen/sore gums. READ MORE
Should I give fever reducer to my child?
You don’t necessarily have to give fever reducer for your child when they have a fever. It depends on how high the fever is and how the child is behaving.

What should I do if son's testicle hasn't descended?
Good morning, We give baby boys up to 1 year for the testicles to drop into the scrotum. If they haven’t descended by then, an ultrasound is done to make sure they are either in the inguinal canal or abdomen. If they are in the canal, we watch, however, if they are in the abdomen, they go surgery to have them pulled down. READ MORE
How can I check my kid for scoliosis?
Good morning, You can take your son to the pediatrician and she/he will check the back for any curvatures. If it’s there, a scoliosis survey can be done. READ MORE
How should one raise a child with ADHD?
Good morning, The best way is with patience and understanding. The entire family needs to go to counseling to let the child know that you are supportive and concerned about their well being. The child can also benefit from tutorial services to help with subjects they are struggling with. They also need to have a structured environment with repetitive routines to help them remember things. She can also make a check list for the child. READ MORE
