Encourage fluids: The most important thing to do is to keep your child hydrated, as these illnesses can lead to dehydration. Encourage him/her to drink lots of fluids - offer them more frequently than normal. Pedialyte is the best thing for children to drink. If the child has fever, blood in the stools, or persistent diarrhea >1 week or shows signs of dehydration like decreased urination or lethargy, see your doc. ...Read more

I got three dissolvable stitches in my upper lip two days ago. My 3 year old son just head butted me and one the stitches is loose. What do I do?

I got three dissolvable stitches in my upper lip two days ago. My 3 year old son just head butted me and one the stitches is loose. What do I do?

Head butt: Ok, take a look at the wound. Are the edges of skin touching each other? Is there a space large enough to slip a dime into? One loose stitch is no problem as long as the wound looks ok and you're not seeing a gap in the skin. If there is any question, we are happy to look at it in a Prime visit with photos! Sorry about the head butt! Those hurt! ...Read more

My 3 year old son have a high fever for three days and just started vomiting today.. His sister has a fever also. What could this be? What should I do

Probably viral but..: It is impossible to know for certain from these symptoms, but the most likely cause is a viral infection, possibly roseola, which is common in 3 yo's & has high fever with few other symptoms (though vomiting can be one of them). Classically the fever goes away after 3-5 days & then a rash appears, so it may be hard to know if he has this for a couple more days. Please see "comment" below for more. ...Read more
