My child has a cold, how long until they can go back to school?

My child has a cold, how long until they can go back to school?

Depends: If a child has a fever, they should be home 24 hours untreated with no fever before going back to school! otherwise, if they are acting normally, eating fairly well, and sleeping at night and are pretty good with using their "secret space, " the inside of the elbow for coughing or sneezing into, and hand washing then they should be ok to be at school, i doubt they were the first case anyway. ...Read more

My child comes back from her dad's with cold like symptoms. I just found out she could have been exposed to meth. How will I know for sure?

My child comes back from her dad's with cold like symptoms. I just found out she could have been exposed to meth. How will I know for sure?

Symptoms: You can get her tested but then if she does not show any sign of anxiety, hyperactivity, tremor, fast speech etc, why bother unless you want proof for a custody issue. You should be concerned over the safety of your child when in her father's care. Perhaps asking the court to get the dad tested for drug may be a better solution. You may check with your city's child care service re. options. ...Read more

Everytime my child gets a cold she gets red very itcy (almost mosquito bite type) spots on her lower back and legs. what could it be?

Everytime my child gets a cold she gets red very itcy (almost mosquito bite type) spots on her lower back and legs. what could it be?

Perhaps these are: not colds but actually allergic reactions. Then, these may be hives (the itchy rash) and the congestion/cough may be part of that allergy. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) may help for both, but please speak with her pediatrician to better diagnose and treat this problem. If you are a Prime member, you also could consult one us through there. ...Read more

Will a child with wet hair get sick if she goes outside when it's cold?

Will a child with wet hair get sick if she goes outside when it's cold?

No: It is a very old idea that you "catch" cold with wet hair. If the child has a healthy diet and is in good physical and mental health, wet hair will not cause enough stress to activate a cold virus. ...Read more

My child's fingertips appear to be going to white, then going back to normal, then white again.?

My child's fingertips appear to be going to white, then going back to normal, then white again.?

Cold related color?: Usually quick changes in skin color can be related to blood vessels. In this case, if blood vessels get small to conserve heat, color will turn more white. If they stay that way, you may see blue. When the vessels get bigger again, you may see flushing, or pink to red. Some people have more reactive vessels than others, and some can experience pain/tingling with this, such as with reynaud's. ...Read more

Should a child go swimming when he has a chest cold?

Should a child go swimming when he has a chest cold?

Exercise a cold?: There is a very simple rule. If your symptoms are above the neck, do anything you want. If your symptoms are also below the neck -- fever, muscle aches, fatigue, for example -- you should avoid exertion. Sitting in warm water is not a problem with a cold, but anything that makes you shiver will just make it harder to fight off your illness. A chest cold is just a cold with post nasal drip. ...Read more
