AllergyMany parents wonder if their child’s symptoms are from allergy. Some allergy diagnoses are straightforward. If your child is repeatedly exposed to a cat and every time develops the same symptoms of hives, itchy eyes and nose, and a cough – the association of allergy is fairly clear.
AsthmaAsthma is a chronic lung condition that can present in a variety of ways. Some children have recurring labored breathing. Others present with chronic cough. Some children mainly exhibit exercise symptoms with shortness of breath, chest discomfort, wheezing, and cough.
Bowel / Bladder and Elimination ProblemsGetting the urine and stool in the toilet without pain and on a normal schedule can be a major challenge. Adult bowel and bladder function is generally effortless and many parents expect children to adapt to this normal life process with relative ease.
Chronic CoughCough is a normal large airway and lung protective mechanism, and most people will cough intermittently to clear secretions from their airway and frequently during viral respiratory illnesses.
Fracture CareBone fractures come in varying severity. Some fractures need minimal care to heal, others require reduction to align the bones, others need surgical intervention, and a few are immediate emergencies to prevent damage to nerves, vessels, or even severe bleeding.
