My three year old girl has some kind of eczema (itchy skin and rash). What kind of doctor should I take her to see to save my time and money and get best result for my girl, a pediatrician, a dermatologist, a family doctor, a hospital, or someplace else?

If your pediatrician feels it is medically necessary, he/she may subsequently refer you to a dermatologist if necessary. ...Read more

Hi docs, would drinking alcohol once a year affect muscle growth and development?

Hi docs, would drinking alcohol once a year affect muscle growth and development?

Not unless that: Drinking lasted most of the year. Single episodes of alcohol consumption have very limited permanent effects, unless the person drinks to the point of alcohol poisoning or has severe underlying problems. It certainly should not effect ultimate muscle growth. Some people are very sensitive and get muscle inflammation with even slight exposure, but this is rare. ...Read more

Depends: How quickly growth plate fractures heal depends on a number of factors. The most important are probably: which bone is fractured, how severe it is, age and the general health of the child. That being said, children do tend to heal more quickly, and growth plate fractures heal more quickly than other fractures. With more information, one of our ortho docs may be able to give you a better idea. ...Read more
