None needed: Cradle cap does not usually need to be treated. If it seems to be bothering the infant (or the parent), you can remove it by applying a lubricant (baby oil, olive oil, aquaphor). Leave the lubricant in for 15 minutes and then take a soft toothbrush and gently scrape it out. If that doesn't work, it's probably worth it to see your pediatrician. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Reasons for having just one knee have pain just inferior to my knee cap and having severe pain in the patella tendon area when I squat. Treatment? 19

A 7 year old child with a heart rate of 200 has unstable SVT (altered loc and delayed cap refill). What is the preferred treatment?
Multiple: As the other answer states, you should take your child to a pediatric cardiologist. He/she will determine the best treatment. In general, there are two options... medicines or a procedure called an EP study with a possible ablation. Each cardiologist is different, but either option is acceptable in my opinion for now. Ultimately, I would expect a cardiologist would perform an EP study. Seek help. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

CAPS: is a critical illness which your doctor can diagnose and treat with medication and if unsuccessful can consider plasmapheresis and or IVIG. I doubt you have CAPS at this point because you would most likely be in an ICU. You could have antipgospholipid syndrome as a primary process or as a consequence of changes resulting from cancer but I am assuming your APL is is remission so may be primary. ...Read more
