What's a good activity for child with sickle cell disease?

Fun activites: Kids with sickle cell deserve to have fun, just like their peers. But you need to concentrate on activities that do not pound on the joints or involve hard, full body contact. The best activity by far is swimming. It moves the joints, improves range of motion, improves lung and heart capacity, and is fun. But whatever your child chooses, ensure good stretching prior to activity. Dive in! ...Read more

Is voltaren (diclofenac) emugel 50 g good to be used for 10 years kid complaining from leg pain after sport activity? Or is it only for adults use?

Is voltaren (diclofenac) emugel 50 g good to be used for 10 years kid complaining from leg pain after sport activity? Or is it only for adults use?

Likely OK..: Voltaren gel is made from an antiiflammatory medicine diclofenac, similar to motrin/aleve etc... Although it is only studied/approved by fda for adult use, I feel that using that topically on a child is safer than taking other medicine (motrin/aleve) orally. Of course, like all other medicine, use smallest effective dosage for shortest duration. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

Are french bulldogs good with children?

Are french bulldogs good with children?

No: I have not had personal experience with this specific breed mauling a patient. Dobermans, German Shepherd, and rottweilers are the top three breeds that maul children. Training is important, reminding children not to bother the dog while he is eating is important as this is associated with more bites. One breed which is known to be gentle to kids is a labrador. Good Luck! ...Read more

Any of the martial arts are great; running, swimming (if you have access to a pool), tennis, etc. They might want to do what a friend is going to participate in; the sky is the limit.

Why is it a good idea to swaddle my child?

Comfort: Swaddling makes your baby feel nice and cozy and comfortable. It also keeps them from waking themselves up with their failing arm and leg movements (which they can't quite control yet).

I would like to cure my child's eczema for good.?

I would like to cure my child's eczema for good.?

Control more likely: Curing may be unrealistic unless you can find a food or other allergen causing the eczema and then eliminating it from your child's life. Gentle cleansers, daily use of a good moisturizer like cetaphil and others, use of topical cortisone when necessary, can all help keep eczema in check. Kids with eczema seem to get bacterial skin infections easily too, so oral antibiotics sometimes help a lot. ...Read more
