Likely allergic: many people are sensitive to anti-bacterial soap, which has no benefit over regular soap. Another possibility is being sensitive to the detergent that the towels are washed in--you may switch to one which is perfume and additive-free. Eliminate possible causes one at a time. ...Read more
Find key: Does she do this with others? At school? If she can control herself in other contexts then it is just carrot and stick (not literal) make chart, every day there is peace they both get a dollar (or something) every time she beats him you give him one of her dollars.

Do not worry: Night time enuresis is common. Usually there is a first degree relative (parent, aunt, uncle, cousin) who also we t the bed. After age 7 the best treatment I have found is a bed wetting alarm. Available at medical supply places, it still has the best track record for resolving this issue. ...Read more
My 6 year old son has been potty trained for over 3 years but is starting to poo his pants. Help!?
May be constipated: One of the most common reasons for pooping in his pants is the child is constipated, and has "overflow incontinence". If your child does not have a bm regularly, or is very quick in passing a bm, his large intestine may be full of poop, and he may be waiting until he can't hold it anymore. Check his stool pattern, and also find out why he is holding his bm's. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My 9 year old son has pock marks on his left shoulder/back. He says it hurts to stretch. He has never had chicken pocks.
Too soon to say: Many rashes resemble Chicken Pox in the early stages, & if your child has been vaccinated at 1 & 4-6 yrs of age, he is much less likely to get this. Chickenpox often starts with a fever, headache, sore throat, or stomachache. These symptoms may last for a few days, with fever in the 101°-102°F. The rash changes appearance over several days (small red bumps, blisters, scabbed lesions). See pic. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hard to tell...: "jumping in his sleep" usually means a child moves around a lot in his sleep. That happens in many kids, but can happen more often if he had a rough day (got poked a few times). "since he had his 1 year old shots" doesn't say how long after the shots (1 day, 1 month, 1 year, etc.), so it is hard to tell if anything is related to getting poked. If related, maybe the legs are sore or he is dreaming. ...Read more
