Joel M. Warsh's Expert Contributions
I believe it is non-toxic. I would call poison control to be sure. I would get seen by your doctor READ MORE
I don't think there should be any issues with it. I unfortunately can not say for sure as is the case with any holistic product. There are minimal to no research on the long term safety of this or most natural products in kids. I looked through the ingredients and they seem benign and should not be an issue in children. Like anything, there is always a chance for a reaction from any medication/natural product so start at a low dose and work up. READ MORE
That is true. Boys do have a slightly lower risk of urine infection. Other than that, it is generally done for religious or cosmetic purposes. There is not a medical need for a circ READ MORE
Yes. That is fine and common. Many children never crawl. As long as everything is normal, I would not worry too much about it. You can work on crawling. Do tummy time and place objects she wants a foot or two in front of her. Don't have any objects near by she can climb on. Make sure it's on a surface that's easy to crawl on, such as carpet or mats.

That is very young to think about ADHD. We generally don't think about that until school age. This is something I would discuss with your doctor READ MORE
We generally recommend no weight training until the completion or near completion of puberty which generally happens around 15-17ish. Before then, using body weight for exercise is best. If he is finishing puberty, it should be ok to start weight training. Start with very low weight and lots of reps. READ MORE
The first and easiest thing to do is not to purchase it. Don't have it in the house and then she can't eat it. It should only be consumed as treats every once in a while. READ MORE
That is a difficult question to answer. It is based mostly on the exam and history. For the most part, a cough with no other symptoms, does not need antibiotics. If it worsens after 1-2 weeks and there is fever, then it may need antibiotics. Every case is different so you need to speak to your MD. READ MORE
I would speak to your MD about it. Check his tonsils and make sure he doesn't have sleep apnea. Consider trying albuterol for true wheezes. Video tape it happening. READ MORE
No, 99.9 is not a fever. A fever is above 100.4. READ MORE
It is likely diarrhea. There are a lot of viruses going around. It is likely benign, but if you are concerned, go to your MD. READ MORE
It is generally recommended around 12 months. READ MORE
No, I think yoga for kids is great! Go for it. As long as they have a teacher trained in working with kids, it should be fantastic. Any exercise using your body weight is totally fine. READ MORE
That is a difficult question, what makes you worried about dengue? Please seek medical care immediately. READ MORE
No, it is perfectly fine. Go for it. Make sure the teacher is well trained in working with kids. READ MORE
I don't think it is a sign of jaundice. Jaundice usually has yellow skin. Yellow urine usually means mild dehydration. I would have that evaluated by your MD. READ MORE
Could be a concussion, but I would have that evaluated immediately. READ MORE
It is hard to say without evaluating. Coughs are mainly viral, but if your MD thinks there is bronchitis or pneumonia, then antibiotics are indicated. READ MORE
That is fine. These things wax and wane. READ MORE
I would speak to your physician and videotape it. Likely benign, but worth a discussion. READ MORE
