Publisher's Description

Know when to call your doctor—and when it’s safe to treat your child at home! Caring for your sick child can be a daunting experience. You want to ensure the best for him or her, but you also know that every illness doesn’t require a trip to the doctor’s office or emergency room. So how do you know when to do what?

Barton D. Schmitt, MD, FAAP, a pediatrician with more than 40 years of experience, knows the intricacies of the most common childhood illnesses and injuries and has written this expert, but easy-to-follow guide so you can too. My Child Is Sick! Expert Advice for Managing Common Illnesses and Injuries is based on clinical guidelines developed by Dr. Schmitt and used by pediatricians and nurses in 10,000 practices and 400 nurse advice call centers in the United States and Canada. These guidelines have been tested for 25 years on more than 300 million phone calls.

All of the topics in the 2nd edition of My Child is Sick! have been fully reviewed and updated, and several new topics have been added, including earwax buildup, mosquito bites, strep throat infections, and wound infections.

Inside this practical book, you’ll find
• Concise, accurate information on the most common illnesses and injuries of childhood such as coughs and colds, ear infections, cuts and scrapes, rashes, diarrhea, and more
• Decision charts to help you determine when to call your child’s doctor and when it’s safe to treat your child at home, as well as descriptions of which symptoms are normal during the course of an illness or recovery from an injury and which are cause for concern
• Specific time-frame guidelines as to when to call your child’s doctor or 911
• In-depth advice for treating symptoms at home, taking the guesswork out of how to make your child feel better
• Drug dosage charts for the most commonly used nonprescription medicines
