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 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 is safe or not.

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

Get seen: Chances are you have a mild infection. Put warm compresses on it and make an appointment with your physician to be seen when it is convenient. And congratulations on your awareness of Paget's -- it may yet save our life, or someone else's, someday. Best wishes. ...Read more
