My 14 year old hit his head today by jumping in the snow. He

Hello my 14 year old hit his head today by jumping in the snow. He went from the hot sauna to thinking he will jump in the snow. However he leaned backwards and fell backwards and hit the back of his head really hard on the ice. That happened 30 minutes ago. He is laying down in his bed now. He is feeling nauseous. He tried throwing up, but did not. He is under three blankets and is cold, and he has a horrible headache and his whole head hurts, not just the back of the head that he hit. His pupils are not dilated and react to light well. Shall I take him to ER?

My 14 year old daughter had a painful type cyst/knot on her

Hi, my 14 year old daughter had a painful type cyst/knot on her right side, just above her clavical bone about 2 weeks ago. Her sister hit her on accident, but not there, and we noticed it, so I rubbed a linament on it and it went away after a day. Well now it's back again. I'm not what I should do. Any ideas would be great. Thank you.

My 1 year old daughter this morning had pink swollen eye.

My 1 year old daughter this morning had pink swollen eye. Today eye was worse and swollen shut. No fever, pus, or drainage and took her to pediatric clinic and said she has Perioribital Cellulitis. Nurse Practitioner gave her Clindamycin and Augmentin prescriptions and said if she's not better in morning to take her to regular Pediatrician. What is periorbital cellulitis? Is it emergent? I gave daughter antibiotics but should I take her to ER or safe to wait? My daughter has no other problems that I know of. Just a worried mommy here.

Sorry for my English that is not my native language, but I

Hi. Sorry for my English that is not my native language, but I try hard.I have concerns about my son. And try to describe all the points that I find important.He is two years and seven months old. He haven't any serious illness or diseases.Most of the time he communicates withhis mom (she's on maternity leave) and me when I'm not at work. At least once a week we see our friends with kids and relatives. He goes outside daily for several hours. It may be a playground or just for a walk. We do not watch TV at all. But son watches some YouTube channels for kids and kids' animation series like Callous or Peppa Pig for about an hour a day.Back when he was under two, he started to say several words like ‘Mama', ‘Give…', several simple nouns, ‘Woof', ‘Meow', tied to pronounce his Name (it's Yan), named several letters, etc. Pointing his ears, nose, eyes, teeth, showing 2 fingers when was asked about his age. But the more we (me and my wife) asked him to show or say something the more bored he seemed and gradually stopped saying anything understandable. At some point we've noticed he started avoiding eye contact not to provoke us to ask again.Also, we stopped giving him baby bottle and attempted to accustom him to potty-chair with no success.We thought that we might had pushed too much and let him go by almost stopping asking him a thing, and stopped trying potty.For some time he seemed to be ignoring our requests, trying to run away and stopped looking into eyes. At the same moment he fell in love with swings. We couldn't pass by any on our way. It became the main activity when he was out. But accepted no carousel of any kind.When he was two years old we faced with hysterical behavior. Now it happens very rarely.We tried to attend classes for early childhood development but he was mostly busy with own stuff not willing to participate general activities and was very happy when class is over.Then we moved to another apartment which as we think he accepted well enough (all described was even before our moving).Now we almost recovered the eye contact. It's not always easy to get his attention but when we captured it he points face and body parts again. He gives handshake and hifive but never waves ‘Bye'. He never nods to show that he agrees.Now just he says a lot of gibberish stuff. More and more. Sometimes it sounds like 2-3 words sentence like ‘Bai-gu-gu', ‘Bai-gu-dee', ‘Ai-la-la', ‘Oi-go-go' in different combinations and it seems like he is trying to explain something or complain aloud. He points his finger when he wants something but doesn't say ‘give…' He brings stuff that he broke asking to fix, or some boxes or jars to open (silently). Understands a lot. He can accomplish simple requests like go get something, throw garbage into the trashcan, helps to take off/on his clothes. Brings mama's clothes. When asking him to say something he used to know or we know he knows he smiles or tries to kiss (like wants to distract).He smiles if he sees you smile, loves hugs and kisses. He is very bound to his mother upsets when she goes out or even bathroom. Earlier he was afraid of crowded places. But now visiting a supermarket or café is not a problem he just ignores all the strangers. He is not into playing with other kids. But he does not avoid them and can play side by side with them.He extremely likes to jump but only inside. He can start jumping right after he woke up. But especially on the bed or while watching YouTube. Also he demonstrate happiness with jumping when you give him something or mother returns home. But he always reacts while jumping, if you give him something, or attract his attention.All of his wishes he expresses via gestures. For example if he wants us to turn on YouTube he pushes me to PC and then put my hand on keyboard.Likes to spin especially on open space like large hall.Gets very angry and cries when we turn off YouTube or do something against his will, but not hysterical.Doesn't like loud noises like vacuum cleaner or hair dryer but he is not shout or cry he just ties to stay away.Latest strange thing we concerned about is he started hiding his toys (cars, pencils…) under the pillows, blankets, under his mom when she's sitting, into any gap in furniture. But he doesn't mind when we remove toys from there.Likes to play with water. Likes putting toy cars into the lines making train. Sometimes sorts Lego parts by color but also plays with it as normal.He eats any food. Apples, carrots, soups…Should we be concerned about my Son's behavior in connection with autism?What should we pay attention to?And what could be the reasons that he refuses to/can't talk normally?Thank you, Pavlo

Just discovered what looks like a skin tag on the lower

Hello :)Just discovered what looks like a skin tag on the lower eyelid of my two year old daughter. I thought it was just muck in her eye, but when I really looked at it I could see it's attached. It is against the eyeball, but attached to the eye lid skin. Very small, maybe 2 millimeters. Flesh colored.Is this something I should be concerned about? Is she likely to get a skin tag there? Is this even likely the be a skin tag or something terrifying?! Thank you... just another worried mom :)

My daughter is 2. Yesterday I noticed that her right eye

My daughter is 2. Yesterday I noticed that her right eye seemed a little swollen/less open than the other but she seemed fine. She was a little restless last night and just seems completely listless but has no fever. I don't think she bumped it playing with her brother so not sure of the cause.Can she have a cold in her eye without having pinkeye? Can this be a symptom of something else?She was a preemie who had possible hydrocephalus but was evaluated and given the all clear that she didn't have it almost a year ago, do I need to take her back in or could it be something else?

I am still worried about my 3 yr old son. He had a hard fall

I am still worried about my 3 yr old son. He had a hard fall to the abdomen on 9/7/2016. I submitted some previous questions about the incident.He got a cat scan with incedentally noted swollen messenteric and inguinal lymph nodes on right side. He now burps or hiccups 1.5 to two hours after he eats (last night he did that for two hours), his temp using infra red on his forehead now goes up to 102.7 around this time. Was going to up 101.5 for first two months. Rectal is 100.0.His mean platelet volume is high for months and low bilirubin. I see feel/see swelling or increased siZe in upper thighs and buttocks. And he looks pale to me with sometimes dark circles under his eyes. His neutrophils are low last time. But all drs in arkansas seem to think he is fine. (We only have one pediatric gi dr) Should i try to go out of state? Is there anything else i can do? Or would you be concerned? Should injust keep waiting and watching? I am afraid the injury affected the absorption or something in the colon and now it has affected the blood brain somehow is why the temp goes up the most there on forehead only after eats (not when he sleeps) Are there tests for this?
