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

?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. Half a teaspoon of salt in a tall glass of warm water is a great rinse for swelling. Rinse frequently and spit, don't swallow. Talk to your physician or dentist about the proper antibiotic and what dose to take. ...Read more

My 11 year old daughter has a tender lump beside her right nipple, not under the nipple. Is this the beginning of thelarche ?

Congrats! Puberty: It certianly sounds like pubertal changes breast tisuue can begin anywhere in the breast area during puberty - it does not have to start right under the nipple. Tender is good too, although she may not think so. It's the non-tender breast masses that would be of more concern. And usually one side starts before the other (usually the dominant hand), so the fact it's just one side is ok to start. ...Read more
