It is mostly based on the timing of the surgical treatment, earlier is better. ...Read more
Varies: The adult system is complex, with fully developed neuron connections that may respond poorly to head trauma. The infant or child, with a developing but simple set of connections, is more tolerant to some similar jarring events. The kid is also more likely to lay down and stay put after trauma, allowing them to reorient and not aggravate the issue, while the adult may try to ignore it & get worse ...Read more

Can a minor head injury cause infertility for a man? My husband was hit by a car while riding his bike when he was a child. He had some type of small plate placed in his head. I guess he lost fluid or something, I'm not sure. He's 45 now and has no childr
I had found two children that go to the daycare center that have head lice can I get it and if they are not to cloes to me?
Avoid transfer agent: Living lice are somewhat stealth in their activities. They are hard to see and often get hung up in brushes, combs, scarves and hats and transfer to others who may borrow them. In a day care setting, any bedding that may be used for naps may be contaminated, so inspect and avoid them. Tossing them in a dryer for a cycle will kill them. ...Read more
Why children can't use electric tooth brush for adults? What will happen if they use adult machine with small head. Does it irritate developing follicle
Why not??: Depends upon the age of the child. Until age 8 or 9, they lack the dexterity to safely and effectively clean their own teeth--so we must rely on the parents. Unfortunately, oftentimes, they aren't all that helpful either! I have used floss followed by a sonicare to clean my son's teeth every night since he was 3 years old--before that we did it manually. He has no dental issues related to disease. ...Read more
Does the head CT scan with and without contrast I got affect my ability to have children in future? Does it mean that I can't marry now? I'm only 26yr
The radiation from 1 head ct does not measurably increase your risk of cancer in the future.
The radiation was no where near your testicles, and even if it was, there is no measurable risk for birth defects in children.
Finally, the contrast was eliminated from your body within 24 hours, assuming no kidney problems. ...Read more

My 20 month old has an ear infection and complains of head pain. I took him to Rady Children's Hospital ER today and the pediatrician did not examine his head at all after diagnosing the ear infection. So my question is, is head pain normal when there is
Head pain: Or head ache, with ear infection can be a common symptom, but it seems that you are still concerned, the doctor who examined your child was comfortable with the diagnosis and probably didn't see any other sign that would make him/her concerned about your son's condition, at any rate, it's your right to be answered for whatever concerning your child's health, you can go again or see another doctor ...Read more
It has been difficult finding a doctor who understands this condition and wants to help treat it. If you could help me, I would appreciate it......?
You need to see a doctor.: Undoubtedly, you have experienced a lot of stress in the recent past and presently have a child to care for, which does not help. Not withstanding the possibility of a PTSD / anxiety related disorder, my recommendation is that you see any physician in your vicinity. Family Med, Internal Med, Neurologist, ENT, etc. You begin by telling them of your current poor balance, loss of coordination, dizziness and extremity numbness only. This warrants an MRI of the head. You need a physical exam and some bloodwork done. Based on your evaluation and the test results, that physician will direct you to the necessary specialist if it is indeed warranted. ...Read more
