My three old started to complain of leg pain (hamstring
My three old started to complain of leg pain (hamstring area) on Monday. She doesn't have a limp but it really seemed to bother her tonight after she was running around outside. She also had a viral infection about 2 weeks ago that seemed to be worse than her older sisters and she also had the stomach bug a week ago. She had recently started preschool for the first time so I'm guessing she is getting germs. But two times in one week she has woken up with puffiness around her eyes that went away a couple of hours later. She has been to the doctors about 4 times in two weeks but never about the leg pain that has developed. Could all this be related? I've read and also know people personally that had a child with leukemia and they had leg pain. I'm so worried.
I had to take my 3 year old for bloodwork... I had to take
I had to take my 3 year old for bloodwork...I had to take my 3 year old for bloodwork at quest labs. It is very hard for her to sit still and she gets up and touches chairs etc while there.I try to use antibacterial wipes on her but of course she still touches and climbs things.She rubbed her eyes super hard and I tried to her her handsaway from her eyes. I wiped her hand and then she took the wipe and wiped the seat handle with it and held it in her hand without letting me get it (toddlers)We were then called into the room for the blood draw so I couldn't wipe them again.'Y concern is could she get hep c or hiv by touching the chair and then rubbing her eyes. Also, by rubbing the anyibaterial wipe and then back on her hand?She also touched the area they were drawing blood from right before bc she got scared so I am afraid she contaminated the site if her hands had any hep or hiv on it from wipe g-d forbid....they did swab with alcohol right before but it was barely a few seconds:(I am trying to keep her safe! After the appt I should have washed her hands but I was so frazzled by her crying, I used another antibacterial wipe in car.Again could she be at risk for any serious illness? Should she be tested?Thanks!

Just found out one of my dogs (10 weeks old from rescue) has roundworms and that my other dog 2 years old has hookworm (she is on Sentinel so not sure how she got it). I am a nervous wreck!!! I have little kids 5,7, and 9. They do not walk where the dogs defecate,we pick up after the dogs (usually right away, but never longer than 24 hours). What I am worried about is if the kids are in danger walking barefoot "inside" our house from what the dogs may track in on their paws? I am a first time dog owner and all my friends are saying relax...I am up the wall! Help! "IF" and hopefully a big "IF" they were to get roundworm or hookworm is it easily treatable? I heard that roundworm has no symptoms...how do we know if they get it?

Just found out my dog has roundworms and I have little kids...I just read online what happens if a child gets roundworm and it sounds horrible...loss of sight, could go to the brain and heart. I am freaking out!They wash their hands before they eat, but I am sure they have touched the dog and then put something in their mouth. Is transmission rare?

My daughter is 14, she has a bad cold and a very discomforting cough. In the past she was prescribed Promethazine DM. Well, great news... her doctors office is closed today for computer training!!!!! Any suggestion for OTC, that may be close to this old rx?
My son is currently 18 months and he had developed a habit
My son is currently 18 months and he had developed a habit of walking along the edges of the couch or wall and looking by the corners of his eyes.He says many words, knows 24 out of 26 letters verbally and visually and is currently learning to write the letters as well through an application he plays with on a tablet.He walks alongside side the wall and couch everyday and I stop him constantly throughout the day by redirecting his attention and routine. He plays with toys without any additional concern but this one behavior is worrying me.
