Matthew swallow a flat, glass, oval-shaped marble. It is maximum 2.5cm in diameter and 0.5cm thick. Can it come out or do we need an intervention?

Pediatrics: In all likelihood, Matthew will easily pass the marble within the next few days. Try to check for it in his bowel movements. Encourage eating of bananas, apple sauce, apple juice, prunes, other high-fiber foods & keep him well-hydrated. Make sure those remaining marbles are out of reach...call your doctor if he starts complaining of pain or blood in stool. ...Read more

Dr Matthew wilson told me to count 38weeks to September 18 to get the day I got pregnant/ovulation day but having trouble help doc where are you.

Count forward: It is easier count 14 weeks forward from your due date on a calendar and then the approximate conception date is 1 year earlier. Even easier, just ask your doctor to look at their "wheel" which calculates all these things. You can also estimate by adding 2 weeks to the first day of your last menstrual period. ...Read more

7yo cannot say th sound (matthew). Had speech therapy from 2-4 yo. Is this cons age app, or should I push for eval bc of prior speech problems?

7yo cannot say th sound (matthew). Had speech therapy from 2-4 yo. Is this cons age app, or should I push for eval bc of prior speech problems?

Cd. Be a problem: If your son was born hearing english and he still can't say "th", he would probably benefit from speech therapy. Can he do initial or final "th"? It does matter. This could be a problem with using the muscles that make this sound or it could be a more straight-forward anatomic problem. If the school does not consider this significant enough to warrant therapy, a private therapist can help. ...Read more

If u still want to try a home remedy use white vinegar daily on ur scalp and have head bath after 10-15 minutes.
