The information is designed to support, not replace, the relationship that exists between a patient/site visitor and his/her existing physician. All medical advice should be considered incomplete without a physical exam, which is not possible without a visit to your Pediatrician. This advice is meant for informational use only.
As I do not feel it is possible to diagnose a child's illness without a physical exam, keepkidshealthy.com will not dispense advice about your children's specific medical problems, especially for acute situations. We will accept questions, but will only answer those that are thought to be of general interest to other parents in the Ask the Pediatrician forum. We will also not prescribe or refill medications through the web site.
