My 3.5 month old baby today has been coughing and sneezing all the time is it a sign of cold? What can i do?

See his doctor: Better at this age to be assessed by their pediatrician, given the symptoms, the cough in particular, it can just be upper respiratory infection. Infants are obligate nasal breathers, so they have to have clear nasal passages to nurse, suction their nose dry before feeding, good luck ...Read more

Take him to the dr: Insurance should not be the primary concern, your two year old should be. I am sure that you get groceries and gas even though your insurance does not cover these items. Sometimes you can negotiate in advance for a cash price. ...Read more

My 3 year old daughter bit the sides of her tongue and now has 2 large canker sores. Is there anything I can do to take the discomfort away?

My 3 year old daughter bit the sides of her tongue and now has 2 large canker sores.  Is there anything I can do to take the discomfort away?

Canker Sore Relief: If nothing else is at hand, use warm salt water to rinse and spit. Avoid citrus, acidic, and spicy foods. An md may prescribe diphenhydramine-antacid solution. Otc, i like the 10% carbamide peroxide available at any pharmacy. I tried it once and it worked great. Safe down to 2 years of age. Just apply directly to sore and spit out after 2-3 minutes. ...Read more

Hello, my 16 months son has a very bad breath smell since one week, he's not under medication &he eats normally. What are the possible causes of this?

Multiple Answers: First find the cause and deal with that directly. Typically, bad breath stems from bacteria between teeth, on the tongue and around the gums. Fortunately, this problem is often easy to fix: good oral hygiene (brushing 2x day, flossing & brushing your tongue), regular visits to your dentist (to prevent gum disease), and ruling out any underlying conditions or other factors. ...Read more

My son had croup 2 days ago. My daughter today has a high fever, no coughing, but she vomitted once. Could it be the same virus or is it totally different. Will I have both a gastro and parainfluenza going through our home?

My son had croup 2 days ago. My daughter today has a high fever, no coughing, but she vomitted once. Could it be the same virus or is it totally different. Will I have both a gastro and parainfluenza going through our home?

Likely same virus: Most probably it is the same virus infection in both the children. Only one vomit does not suggest another infection .Your daughter may start coughing later on .Coughing ,diarrhea and vomiting and fever are the common symptoms in respiratory viral infections .Watch your daughter for her symptoms and talk to your doctor . ...Read more

My 2 yrs old baby is having a fever at night only. shes doing good in the morning what could this be?

Probably virus: It may be a mild viral illness and that is just not making her too sick. Fevers always go up at night. As long as she is playful, eating well, and otherwise appears well, don't worry. If she continues to run fevers at night for longer than a week, you should probably have her evaluated by a healthcare professional. ...Read more

Plastic Spacers?: Discuss your concerns with your surgeon. You will likely be able to use plastic "spacers" so that there is no metal involved. Some types of cautery we use these days do not require the removal of metal etc. Best to check with your daughter's surgeon. Best wishes. ...Read more

Pediatrician: I would suggest you use a humidifier overnight and make an appointment with the pediatrician in the morning (due to the fever for 2 days) just to make sure there isn't a bacterial component of the illness. If he has any increased work of breathing/difficulty breathing then seek treatment at ER immediately. ...Read more

Unlikely: If there only has been one episode of vomiting, i would not blame the milk. 2% milk is what toddlers are normally started on. I would observe him for awhile and see what occurs. ...Read more
