I Cant Keep Weight On My Son But He Refuses To See A Doctor
My son (age 12) dropped a 5lb weight on his toe. Should we take him to see our family doctor? Will he loose his toe nail?
I believe my son has milia under his eye. I cant afford to see a doctor at this time.. Is there anyway that I can treat this myself. He is 5 years old?
No: I wouldn't recommend doing anything to remove the milia, especially in a delicate area near the eye.

If there is swelling, apply ice. Depending on how long you have to wait to see a specialist, you might call your family doctor to push things along. ...Read more

Depends: If dog is well known to you and is up to date with shots then you are probably ok. Just be sure your son is up to date with tetanus and watch for possible bite wound infection with redness and swelling. See dr. Also if dog is not known or a stray then call animal control as well as consider possible need for rabies prevention? Dog should be reported if bite unprovoked or considered dangerous. ...Read more
Loose ???: I would look to his feedings and just cut back some. The effort would focus on feeding only for hunger and not to solve fussiness or prepare for sleep. The best way is to feed only as they awaken, and accept that they chew,mouthe, suck constantly as a comfort measure.Your goal should be to slow the weight gain not necessarily loose weight. ...Read more
