When you can, clean the wound and apply a bit of topical antibiotic. If appropriate, a band aid to finish the wound care. If a change in status occurs, the call your family doctor for advice. ...Read more

My 2.5 year old son skin round his toe nails is peeling off and always have sweaty feet, he also drinks lots of water and pee a lot, what can it be?

The skin needs to be moist but able to breath. With shoes, cotton socks need to be worn to absorb excess moisture. The drinking and peeing is more likely behavioral than anything else, but a quick urine test will do more to reassure you. ...Read more
