My one year old fell and hit his head now he has a huge lump and its dark purple should I be concerned?
Hmmm: If he/she fell from a height (a chair, table etc.) then you should see the doc just to be sure. Most falls while standing, walking or running do not cause severe injuries unless the child lands on something very hard or pointed. Lacerations need stitches of course, but bruises/lumps heal fine. If the child starts vomiting go to er. If the child acts very tired or lethargic/sleepy go to the er. ...Read more
My seven year old son got three penicillin injections in his butt cheeks two weeks ago and still he has a hard lump under his skin is it normal❓?
My son has a cold. I was wondering if it was okay to rub vics on his chest? He's almost 9 months old.
Not a good idea: I consider this and similar rubs as air pollution that usually triggers cough and congestion. I never suggest it below school age if then because of the effect it has in congesting kids with small airways. The practice traces back to the pine pitch natives used to scent the steam in sweat huts. While possibly helpful for adults I find it worth little for kids. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hello my five year old daughter had a few red dots on her ear lobe (left) yesterday and I didn't think anything of it, she didn't complain about it ei?

I noticed my four year old chewing on her fingertips yesterday . She said they're itchy. I noticed all ten fingers have a callous like rash /peeling.
My husband just elbowed my 1 year old in the face. Hard. He turned really fast. My son started crying but then went back to sleep. Is he okay??
Almost certainly : Children cry for lots of reasons. The fact that your child cried right away implies that he didn't lose consciousness. If he has no purplish discoloration over the course of the next few hours then I wouldn't worry. If when he awakens he is really irritable and you can't calm him down I would have him see his doc. ...Read more

Cryptorchidism: This is not too unusual but it probably is a good idea to have his pediatrician do an exam and possibly they will advise surgery. It is relatively easy and safe but it is likely that you (and he) will be advised to watch over his lifetime for any unusual changes. Males who've had this condition do have an increased risk of testicular cancer. But don't worry now - just have an exam and get advise. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Puberty: Boys tend to enter puberty about age 11 and 1/2 to 12 years. Puberty could start at age 13 in some boys. The first sign of puberty in a boy is enlargement of the testicles. In the next stage of puberty there is growth of the penis and growth in height. About two years after the start of puberty growth increases greatly. So it all depends when the boy starts puberty. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My 4 year old has his first loose tooth. It has been loose for over a month. A few days ago i noticed its turning brown. Hedidn't hit it. What should I do?
My 3 year old banged his head pretty bad at nursery over a year ago but still has large bump and keeps banging it. Today he has cut it bigger bump?
Common: Head trauma in the active toddler is very common as is recurrent bruising in roughly the same area. As he gets older he will stop falling and the bump will go away. You mentioned a cut in the recent fall. Keep it clean, but if the skin is split widely the you may need to seek care for it After any trauma watch for any strange behavior, or lack of limb movement to see if Med care is needed ...Read more

My 5 year old son was around my girlfriends daughter of 4 on saturday. She now has bacterial pneumonia. Should i be concerned for my son's health?
Not particularly: Bacterial pneumonia is often a secondary event in kids who have a preceding cold or lower respiratory virus. The bacteria involved are common ones carried in their own airways before conditions allow them to flourish and cause the pneumonia.For the present, just monitor your kid as you usually do and seek out an evaluation if he begins to act sick. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
