My daughter is 2-1/2 years old she is very healthy kid, her pediatrist dosent recommended flu shot for her, tell me please is flu shot for every kid?

Yes: Every child 6 months and older should get a flu shot to help prevent influenza. Complications of influenza include ear infections, sinusitis, wheezing, pneumonia, hospitalization, and yes, even death. If a parent can decrease the chances of those complications by one or two little shots, the shots would be a good idea.

The top of my foot hurts so much and I'm waiting for a call from the pediatrist. Are there exercises that help with keeping in shape/relieving pain?

The top of my foot hurts so much and I'm waiting for a call from the pediatrist. Are there exercises that help with keeping in shape/relieving pain?

Reason for pain????: First, before you can exercise your foot, you need to find out what is causing the pain. For example, if you have fractured a bone in your foot, you may need to immobilize your foot until the bone heals. You need to see your podiatrist and find out what the cause of the pain is first. Once that is diagnosed, your doctor can recommend exercises that are safe to do and that will be beneficial. ...Read more

16yr old son has lost 40 lbs in less than 6 months. He is 119 and 5"9. He is very cautious about how much he eats. His pediatrian says it is a phase.?

Continued: If his answer is "yes" and he really does think he is too fat, then that is evidence of an extremely distorted body image, and I would advise seeking help right now, before this goes any further. If his answer is "no" and he plans to maintain his weight where it is, then you can wait and see, so long as he doesn't get any thinner. ...Read more
