My 11 yr old son told me yesterday that one of his nipples is sore. I looked at it and it looks a little swollen. Should I be concerned?
Follow with care: It is normal for boys (and girls) to experience changes of the nipples and breasts between 9 and 12 years of age. Boys may develop small breast buds and sometimes have sensitive areas with small amount of drainage. It is important to discuss with a pediatrician and evaluate a boy's genitalia to ensure normal development. If breast buds develop excessively (gynecomastia) treatment is available. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My 11 yr old son has a sore, swollen scrotum. Both testicles seem fine, the center area between is swollen, skin around the area is itchy and burns.
?angioedema...: At age 11, the first that comes to my mind is spontaneous twisting of appendages inside scrotum. If the contents inside scrotum are normal by history, palpation, and optional ultrasound, i would consider if he has angioedema of scrotum. Of course, a good history and adequate physical exam would help a diagnosis. If any doubt, see expert timesly. Good luck. ...Read more

Sounds like teething: The symptoms you describe sound like your son's 2nd molars are coming in. I do not know how much your son weighs, so i cannot comment on whether the Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) is safe or not.

Talk to your physician or dentist about the proper antibiotic and what dose to take. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My 10 days old son breast feeds for over 1 hour in one side and after a while wakes up for feeding! i feel I have enough milk. My nipples are sore?
Breastfeeding durati: Soreness of the nipples is frequent in the first week but goes away eventually. Make sure that the latch is good, meaning that your nipples should pass the baby's gum line and touching the roof of the mouth while nursing. I suggest no more than 20 minutes of sucking on each breast for a full feeding time. An hour on one breast is much too long and baby is treating your nipple as a pacifier! ...Read more
