@utger Hello, Rashes around the lips are often caused by skin irritants. Lip licking, bacterial infections, and skin conditions like eczema can also be culprits. The best way to find the cause of your lip rash is to see a dermatologist.
@ryanne Hello, you made the right choice. It could be Herpangina. Herpangina is a sudden viral illness in children. It causes small blister-like bumps or sores (ulcers) in the mouth. They are often in the back of the throat or the roof of the mouth. A tongue bump is more likely to be cancerous if it grows on the side of the tongue, particularly if it is hard and painless. It is worth consulting a doctor about any lump or bumps that last longer than a week or two. An infection in the mouth or on the tongue may cause swelling and pain at the site of the infection. He needs a full evaluation. Thanks!!
@kajeet Hello, Osteoporosis is rare in children and adolescents. When it does occur, it is usually caused by an underlying medical disorder or by medications used to treat the disorder. This is called secondary osteoporosis. Sometimes, however, there is no identifiable cause of osteoporosis in a child. I would recommend an evaluation by a pediatric endocrinologist as I suspect this is related to a metabolic bone disorder and should be further evaluated. Thanks!!
@casey-0 Sleep is of paramount importance to young children. it’s normal for parents to want to make sure that their children, whether babies or young kids, get the sleep that they need. Babies spend the majority of their day sleeping. The normal amount of time that babies sleep depends on their age. newborns spend between 14 and 17 hours sleeping every day. Because of the need for feeding, this sleep is usually broken up into a number of shorter periods. While the bulk of total sleep happens at night, it’s rare for newborns to sleep through the night without waking up. Thanks!!
@hephzibah It is choosing to take child care training. It provides information for parents on the importance of early childhood development and for understanding their pivotal roles in the lives of their children. This knowledge will build parents’ confidence and will help ensure the best start in the lives of their children. understand what responsive care looks like, that is, how to respond to cues and clues a child’s own signals. It encourages parents to listen attentively to children and to take their feelings seriously. The participation of parents is essential in making sure that children’s needs are met. It would be a great choice. Thanks!

@lwin Hello, I understand your son's condition and your concern towards your son. But since your son is too young to take treatment from an open forum like this you need to consult a pediatrician for your assistance. Tell the same to him so that he may examine your son and give him proper treatment. Your child’s treatment will depend on what the doctor thinks is causing their pain. Treatment may be as simple as sending your child home with advice to rest, take fluids and eat a bland diet.
@lda Hello, Bottle tooth decay happens when baby teeth are frequently affected by too much sugar. Sugar stuck in teeth becomes the reason for bacteria to thrive and produce acid which attacks the teeth and tooth enamel, resulting in tooth decay. Sugar is found in milk, infant formula, juice, snacks, etc. By implementing good oral hygiene in infants and young children, tooth decay can be staved off. While feeding a baby, there are a few simple steps that can help to prevent the baby bottle tooth decay. Thanks!
@abio Hello, it seems like you have iliopsoas tendonitis. Iliopsoas tendinopathy refers to a condition that affects the insertion of the muscle on the femur and can occur with repetitive hip flexion and other deficits of the biomechanical system resulting in chronic degenerative changes of the tendon. It is much like you are describing, the condition presents with a popping/snapping sensation and the audible sound of the hip when extended or flexed. Pain and inflammation usually ensue. The treatment involves resting and icing the affected area while maintaining adequate hydration. You may take ibuprofen to control the pain. In addition, you should avoid strenuous activity or exercise such as running, weight lifting, and sports. If the symptoms do not resolve or worsen, you should be evaluated by your primary care doctor.
@eyenne Hello, Clear, cloudy, or white discharge that appears only when you press on your nipple is usually normal. The more the nipple is pressed or stimulated, the more fluid appears. Yellow, green, or brown discharge is not normal and may be a symptom of an infection or other problem. It is better to consult a doctor. Thanks.
@ylin Hello, Several conditions may cause the appearance of protein and ketones in the urine. Like, detection of protein may be observed in people who exercise strenuously, certain kidney disorders, febrile states, etc. Ketones, in large amounts, are identified in disorders such as diabetes, eating disorders Anorexia/Starvation, prolonged vomiting, etc. How is her generalized health? Does she have any symptoms aside from the abdominal pain?
However, we cannot say that she has diabetes because this needs to be confirmed by 2 glucose tests, in addition to asking the patient about symptoms of frequent urination, feeling thirsty, and hungry
@dmund Hello, There are several possible causes of this, including acid reflux, asthma, food allergies, and dysphagia, which refers to difficulty swallowing. If your child still has a cough after 3 weeks, call your doctor. some simple steps may help you cough less like Keeping a food diary and marking any foods that make her cough. Sucking menthol or other medicated sweets can help ease irritating coughs and sore throats in older children. Thanks!
@ethany Hello, set a routine. Routines and consistency help kids know what to expect and, more importantly, do things without too much resistance. When they’ve done the same things at roughly the same times for a while, they come to accept it as part of the norm. One of the best things you can do is to make sitting on the potty a regular part of your child’s day. Regularly take him to sit on the potty either at set times of the day. It can be challenging when your 4-year-old won’t poop on the potty after all this time. But as you can see, a few simple changes can be helpful. Thanks!
@eberhard The adolescent years are filled with anxiety, frustration, fear, and other things. Many teens lash out because they don’t know other ways to express what they’re feeling. You can try Deep breathing, writing in a journal, physical activity like walking or boxing, or listening to music can help ease frustration. Talk to someone you love spending time with, and exercise will help you. If it doesn’t help then take the help of a therapist. Thank You.
@ltrun Hello, your child suffers from separation anxiety. A child psychologist might be able to help.

At home Learn about your child's separation anxiety disorder, and Stick to the treatment plan. Encourage your child or loved one to try new experiences, experience separation, and develop independence with your support. Thanks!
@cey Hello, did you visit a dermatologist? If just one egg is missed then the infestation will continue. The treatments do usually work. Are you following the instructions completely? you probably should call your GP's office and find out if there is a specialist center in your area that deal with headlice. If your child scratches an itchy scalp due to head lice, it's possible for the skin to break and develop an infection. It is better to see a GP. Thanks!
@bien Hello, Slapped cheek is a viral infection caused by the human parvovirus B19. It is also called the fifth disease or erythema infectiosum. It may take between four and 14 days after your child is exposed to slapped cheek for any symptoms to show. The symptoms can vary and are usually so mild that many parents won't realize that their child has had the virus. The first symptoms can include fever, headache, stomach upsets, aches, and pains. If she doesn’t have any discomfort then it might be eczema or sunburn. If it is causing her any sort of discomfort then please talk to your doctor, if not then it is fine. Thanks!
@eliita Hello, A cleft palate or cleft lip is a birth condition in which parts of the mouth do not join up during early fetal development. The cause is unknown, although genetic factors sometimes play a role. A cleft lip or cleft palate is not caused by anything the parents did or did not do during the pregnancy. A parent who was born with a cleft lip or a cleft palate has a small chance of passing on the condition to their child. But around two-thirds of cases have no known family history or cause. Even the healthiest, well-planned pregnancies can result in a cleft, and this is no one’s fault.
@solace Hello, my 4-year-old son gets this as well. I took him to the doctor, he said it is Perioral dermatitis. Perioral dermatitis is an acne-like problem commonly seen around the mouth in children. They develop small pink bumps around the mouth and sometimes around the nose and eyes. The rash may be mildly itchy and it may come and go over time. Take her to the doctor. Thanks!
@nyoka Hello, as you said she has 16 teeth but she might be teething. excess saliva production includes teething, low muscle tone, and /or swallowing difficulties. Excessive saliva production and drooling may require a professional consultation. You can consult with a doctor, dentist, and/or speech-language pathologist. Typical drooling is no cause for alarm in infants and toddlers. However, excessive drooling accompanied by fever or other various red flags could be signs of more serious concerns such as retropharyngeal abscess, Ludwig angina, or upper airway obstruction. Please talk to a doctor. Thanks!
