I Cant Keep Weight On My Son But He Refuses To See A Doctor
My father always has headakes and a bad back pain these days and I wanted to see if he should go to his doctor
Ps. It's not for me it's for him?
He has to want to go: The problem with these situations that involve reluctant patients is they have to want treatment. You cannot force them to do what they don't want to do. You're his daughter and not his therapist, nor should you try to be. Perhaps a trusted friend would be better able to get him to go. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I need help my 3yr old hit her head and ER said she will be ok but she crying and sleeping to much . I'm afraid what should I do?
Depends: It is relatively common for young kids to have intermittent headaches after head trauma and it is okay for them to sleep. You have had her evaluated in the ER and I assume they did an exam and reviewed the type of fall. If you think something has changed, she has had recurrent vomiting or a personality change, go back. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My son 6+15d and he is not bearing his weight on his legs. He is starting to sit t. What should I do for it?
Sounds normal: Infants will hold their legs out stiffly when held up until about 6 mo, they are not bearing weight but doing it as a reflex. The reflex fades before they can begin to control their legs in the upright position.At 6 mo they can generally sit briefly & get to sitting around 9m. Many can begin to pull to stand and cruise on furniture by 10-12 m which is when they can really bear weight. ...Read more
My bf got bit by a spider on his forehead, since then hes been complaining about how tired and how he doesn't feel good. Do I need to take him to er?
Infection? Shingles?: People often assume spider bites for large, painful, or itchy red bumps, but spider bites are rarely the cause. It might be only a large pimple, but the other symptoms could mean more serious infection, or maybe herpes zoster (shingles), especially if more bumps appear or if there is pain outside the bump itself. He should get care soon. ER OK if severe pain or fever, otherwise call doc first. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is she growing,: gaining weight and developing normally?Is she truly eating/drinking nothing?Many toddlers go through an extremely picky stage,where they seem to be eating nothing.If she is growing and gaining weight,try to back off and not make this a huge issue.Just offer her a few things at each meal and let her eat what she wants.If she's not, then certainly speak to her doctor (which you should do anyway.) ...Read more
I went to a doctor for trouble sleeping and he put me on Depakote er. Did he lie about what it's for?
Misunderstanding?: Doctors rarely lie. But it does sound like you need to see another doctor. If you don't trust a doctor - even a good one - it's not as helpful. Make sure you understand each other - bring someone along to help if needed. It is not a usual rx for insomnia - it can even cause it. Understanding = help. Achieve it and you're partway there! ...Read more

My son is 2 years old. He still not chewing and throwing up. I consult to a gastro pediatrician and he told me to take Xray to my son. Is it safe?
X-ray children: As with any x-ray there is always a small dose of radiation (very small exposure). You always have to weight risks/benefits. Given your son is having difficulties with chewing the throwing up refractory to conservative treatment, an x-ray sounds like a necessary next step to make sure these doctors know more about whats going on. ...Read more
Talk to doctor: Bipolar is a broad, vague term which may not be accurate. More important is what you see at home. Talk to your pcp, describe your husband's behavior and ask what to do. If not an emergency, ask for the name of a therapist to give you more guidance. If you worry you're husband's suicidal or out of control and may harm you, others or property do call 911 and get him to ER. Hope this helps. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My child has a rash on her face and she wants to go to school tommorrow what can I do? I need to get rid of the rash tonight and i only have neosporin please help.
A : A rash with raised red bumps is called a maculopapular rash and can be caused by many, many things such as: -food or drug allergy -viral infections such as fifths disease, roseola, ebv, CMV just to name a few -insect bites such as fleas or scabies -bacterial infection such as scarlet fever (caused by strep) -medication reaction or it can be seen in very rare things such as: -measles -toxic shock syndrome -kawasaki disease -meningitis -stevens-johnson syndrome -rocky mountain spotted fever disease the list goes on and on. The best thing to do is to call your child's doctor. They may want to take a look to see what it may be.

Many schools will send kids home for rashes unless they have a doctor's excuse stating that the rash is not contagious. ...Read more
My daughter is 2 years old and doesn't want eat. I have tried everything but all she wants is a bottle. What can I do to get her to eat?
Re-examine the issue: My expectation for feeding at that age is 3-5 good feeding days a month & the rest nibbling or grazing.There interest also shifts to carbohydrates to sustain activity rather than protein to sustain growth. Feed at the table & be sure appetizing food is always available in a for they could sample. As long as the growth rate & activity level are normal, relax.Think balanced week not balanced meal. ...Read more
