What's the cause of newborn acrocyanosis?

Acrocyanosis: Acrocyanosis in newborns is primarily due to an immature circulatory system. The peripheral vascular system performed exceedingly well at shunting blood towards the heart with certain stimuli, such as cooler temperatures. This is a benign and common finding, only of concern when accompanied by CENTRAL cyanosis (bluishness of the lips, tongue and oral tissues) and/or an overall mottled appearance. ...Read more

7mo w/acrocyanosis. Motted appearance on limbs, NO central acrocyanosis. Good perfusion & normal oxygen stats. Doc didn't worry about motted appearanc

Acrocyanosis: If oxygen level is normal, acrocyanosis is normal, although at 7 month it is unusual, unless the room the baby is in is cold. We usually examine the tongue; if the tongue is blue, that is more serious. The pediatrcian listens to the heart and lung carefully. Sometimes exposure to certain substances can do that, like methhemoglobinemia. ...Read more

What are ringworns how do childern get ringworns

What are ringworns how do childern get ringworns

Ringworm: Ringworm is actually not caused by a worm at all, but is caused by a fungus that lives on the skin called tinea. People can get a tinea infection from skin to skin contact with an infected person or pet or by sharing personal items such as towels, clothing, and combs.

Clotrimazole is the generic name for the over the counter cream that treats ringworm. Apply 2-3 times a day for a few weeks until the lesion disappears completely and then some. Keep it covered for the first day of treatment (or longer if you want to) to prevent spread. Your child will need to see his doctor for a stronger medication if the ringworm is on his scalp, continues to spread after treatment at home or if it doesn't get better after 4 weeks of treatment at home. ...Read more

Some kids are in so many activities they are burned out and have little time for anything else. Most kids nowadays live to be on a wireless device and that takes a chunk of time. Have clear expectations of your child and let him know what they are. Unplug the tv, limit the phone gaming time. ...Read more
