A 30-year-old female asked:

my daughter has hsp and is only to 2 and half will she get worse or better?

Most do quite well: Hsp is a spooky process & its symptoms mimic some other scary disorders.Over the years i can't remember a case that had any long term issues, although the case reviews note some risk of kidney problems.I generally monitor these kids for blood in their urine for a few weeks & let the process run its course.

Allergies: This probably represents allergies to dust mites, mold or pets. Google dust mite/mold elimination for a list of things to do to eliminate this exposure. Get all animals out of the house and if this fails to resolve the problem see your physician to find out why she is having the problem.

Not necessarily.: Being 15 years old puts your daughter right in the middle of her teen years. Remember that at this time, a lot of hormonal changes are occurring that can make your teen more moody, edgy, or act "weird". The key is communication with your teen- be sure to establish a trusting relationship with them and talk to them openly about alcohol, tobacco, drugs, and sex.

A 22-year-old female asked:

My daughter stopped eating at young age which made her growth reduce and now she is 14 and she eats healthy but could she still get taller?

Probably: Most 14 year-old girls have not stopped growing, so will gain some height. Only the doctor who has been seeing here and charting her growth annually can tell what the growth trend has been. Meanwhile, she eat enough healthy foods, exercise appropriately, and get plenty of sleep at night.

A 45-year-old male asked:

My daughters is 10years and 3 months. Her recent cycles have been irregular and during her last 2 periods she bled excessively. Is this normal?

Not uncommon: During the initial year of cycles young women often do not release eggs, which is an important point in creating regularity by triggering release of a pacing hormone. Without this cycles are estrogen dominated and build until womb tissue until it sheds, often with prolonged or heavy cycles. You can wait it out and it should normalize or she could go on the pill to pace her system.
