2 yr old has 2 red pimples next to each other on the back of her thigh.She doesnt itch it or complain.Has been there for 3 days.Its not spreading.
There are several... Women
....things this could be. As a general rule regarding rashes in kids, I advise that if the kid is well and the rash isn't bothering him/her, then leave it alone and see what it does. If the rash is bothering the kid then a doctor should see it. Likewise, if the rash is occurring in the context of an illness, the doctor should see it.

Is it possible for my asthma to worsen when hitting a growth spurt?
Anything's possible, Asthma
....But it's more likely that if your asthma is worsening then you are reacting to something in your environment or in your food. In any case, see your doctor if your symptoms are worsening. There are few worse feelings than the inability to breath.

Dr. Bryan Levey answered:
My 2 year old hardly eats. No matter what i offer. He only likes popcorn , black olives, fish crackers and bacon. What can I do? He is small already.
The bottom line... Nutrition
...Is that he eats this way because you've allowed it. Talk to your pediatrician about techniques to get him eating a better variety of food. Then once you have those techniques, use them, even if your son cries and is unhappy. As far as being small is concerned...That doesn't matter, provided he's been growing well and is within a normal range. Your pediatrician can discuss that with you too.

Dr. Bryan Levey answered:
A mother has a as her blood type and her husband is o. But their daughter's blood type is b. Is that possible?
Clearly yes.... Blood
....It's possible for the baby to be b. But the husband isn't the father. This assumes that you have all the blood types right. Before you stir any pots, i would make very, very sure that the mother and her husband are the blood types you think they are. If mom is actually a or ab, or dad is b, then he could be the father. The baby has to get the b type from someone.

My 5 year old has a fever. Vomiting and diarrhea. Is this a stomache bug?
Probably Diarrhea
The most important thing with an illness like this is to keep him well hydrated. Don't worry about eating...He'll eat when he's better, but he needs to drink to avoid dehydration. Clear liquids are best. If things get worse or are not resolving, or if something begins to hurt, you need to bring him to his pediatrician.

I've never had chicken pox, wanting to get the chicken pox vaccination. What are the risks? Deadly? How do I know if i'm allergic to gelatin?
Not deadly! 153896752
The chickenpox vac is much safer than getting the disease. Most people who get the vac do not have any problems. As with any vaccine, there is a very small chance of having a side effect. Serious side effects are very rare (seizures-brain rxn). They are usually more likely to occur after the 1st dose than after the 2nd one (yes 2 doses are rec). If your rxn to gelatin-is anaphylaxis-no vaccine!
