My 20 month old can speak in sentences, recite paragraphs from books, count to 20 and knows her ABCs (abacavir). Is this advanced for her age?
Yes!!: This is quite advanced language skills for this age. Generally we are looking for the ability to connect two words into sentences at age two. I would continue to encourage educational play time but limit tablet/phone contact. You want your child to experience real life stimulation and not become addicted to electronic stimulation. ...Read more
I came incontact with hiv positive blood while I was helping a family member. I started taking kavimum abacavir 300gm as a form of prevention on the same night. for how long should I take and when should I test?
HIV PEP: Presumably you are in medical care: a health professional determined the blood exposure was sufficiently high risk for HIV to warrant post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) with anti-HIV drugs. Continue treatment the full time prescribed (usually 4 weeks) and follow the advice of the doctor or clinic who prescribed it about follow-up testing. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Exposure + Genes: One needs both a genetic component and "exposure" to a said allergen to develop an allergy. There is a growing support over the past 20 years, that growing up in an environment which is "too clean" can also lead to development of allergies down the road. Either way, allergies are on the rise. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Nut allergy: Maybe. Your children may have inherited genes from you that make them more likely to develop an allergy, but they do not inherit a specific allergy to a food e.g. Nuts. The children have to be exposed to food proteins in the diet, before an allergy can develop. Once one develops an allergy then they are always allergic and need proper medical attention to prevent severe problems. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Skin & blood tests: Prick testing with allergenic extracts or fresh foods can help confirm allergy, as can blood tests for specific ige antibodies (rast-type tests). However, both types of testing can produce false positive results, and confirmation with food challenges may be needed. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Not exactly: The ability to react to certain proteins in an allergic way is passed on from parents to their children, but a specific allergy is not. So if a mom is allergic to pollen and the dad is allergic to fire ants, their child may develop allergies but it may be to a food instead. If 1 parent has allergies, the child is 50% likely to develop allergies, but it's a 75% chance if both parents are allergic. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
