Move stuff farther: Children are naturally curious, so it is not possible to stop them from trying to reach for stuff above their heads. Therefore, the parents must move the stuff up so high that the kids won't even bother trying to reach the stuff. Also, remove any means by which the kids could climb up (climbing can be dangerous when a child falls). ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Possible causes: Headaches are very common in all ages. If it is associated with fever, vomiting, sore throat, confusion, or due to trauma, she needs to see her pediatrician right away. Otherwise, you can try giving her some Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen to ease her pain. Also, see if certain things seem to trigger her headaches. Do they run in the family? If they last, she should be seen. ...Read more

A circumference < 10% must be evaluated with height & weight in order to determine overall small stature vs. an isolated anomaly of head growth. Developmental milestones must also be assessed. See your child's doctor now. Early intervention is very important. ...Read more

I have microcephaley but my head CM 52cm what is the age range. Ie how small/ big to child please ?
Don't understand ???: Not sure how you were diagnosed with "microcephaly" at 33 yrs of age. 52 cm is smaller than "average", but still falls within 2 standard deviations of average (which means it's essentially normal). You also have to correlate it with your adult height to figure out where you fall on the percentile curves. If this doesn't help please try and rephrase your question a little more clearly. ...Read more
If a child has mild untreated craniocynostosis, will they automatically growup with an abnormal head?
Depends on situation: True craniosynostosis (cs) will produce head deformities if untreated. Many early head shape variations have nothing to do with cs, they are often do to sleeping positions that allow the temporary shifting of head shape.These respond to conservative therapy with stretches or rarely a shaping helmet. ...Read more
My child is 1 yr nd he is hitting his head on the ground, i don't know why? Any help coz he is hurting himself
Drawing attention!: If he is otherwise normal and healthy, prepare for the spoilable toddler with acknowledgement of his ability to know what "cause and effect" is. His behavior is an attention grabber. Ensure he is safe and allow him and if he continues, ignore his "drama.". ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

In general, topical steroids are not recommended on the face, but if the eczema is very bad, you could apply a very thin layer of Hydrocortisone 0.5%. It's always prudent to take your child to a pediatrician. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Itching, or none: Many children have no symptoms whatsoever, despite a good-sized infestation. Other children may have itching or a rash around the scalp. The diagnosis is made by finding live lice and/or nits in the hair. To check for lice, use a very fine-toothed comb to comb through wet hair section by section, looking for nits and adult lice. ...Read more

Antifungal cream: Ringworm is not a worm at all, but a fungal infection, the same fungus that causes athletes foot and jock-itch. There are a number of antifungal creams that are safe to use on the face. Two tips, though. First, make sure to treat beyond the edge of the lesion - the fungus usually extends about a 1/2 inch past the edge. Second, be patient. It usually takes 4-6 weeks of continued use to clear up. ...Read more
