How to Avoid Catching a Cold

Batten down the hatches. It’s common cold season again. As we mentioned in a previous blog, the key to a cold is exposure.

When Should I Worry: Headaches

You’re not the only one who gets headaches – those nasty, inescapable bouts of cranial pain that make you feel like your temples are being squeezed together by a vice, or that a very small man with a much larger hammer is busy ringing a gong between your ears. Unfortunately, headaches affect approximately 75% of Read More…

When Should I Worry: Coughs in Children

Nothing disrupts a peaceful evening of Netflix binging like the mid-fall mania caused by a sudden barking cough from a child’s bedroom. Well, except vomiting. Sometimes the two even coincide, and then you really have a night on your hands. The end of October is only days away. The uncommonly warm temperatures we’ve experienced in Read More…

How to Have Your Treats (and Eat Them Too) This Halloween

Do you want to hear something scary? Like, really scary? The average trick-or-treater will collect anywhere between 3,500 and 7,000 calories in their loot bags on Halloween night. Not only that, but they’re what’s considered “discretionary calories,” which means their nutritional value is a grand total sum of zero. What’s more, your kids are probably Read More…

The “F” Word: Cover Your Ears and Roll Up Your Sleeves

That ugly “F” word is making the rounds once again. No, it’s not something your kids might overhear at recess.  It’s also not fall, football, or Frankenstein. Have you guessed yet? Thanks to county fairs, that nasty word – “flu” – dominated news cycles a little earlier than in years past. Cases of swine flu Read More…

Childhood obesity is a health epidemic that continues to impact America’s homes and schools, and is currently estimated to affect one in five children nationwide.

When Should I Worry? High Fevers in Children

“Feed a Cold. Starve a Fever.” That’s an old adage from days before the Internet. One that’s only somewhat reliable. Here’s a far more helpful phrase: “Don’t Fear a Fever. Understand It.” Let’s face it: no one enjoys having a fever. They make you feel flushed, clammy, and irritable. Many parents and guardians, however, are Read More…

Attention Parents: Enterovirus Outbreak Spreading Through Local Communities

With the school year now in full-swing, and subtle signs of autumn beginning to surface despite uneven temperatures, seasonal illnesses have begun making their presence known. For months now, every pharmacy, big box store, and urgent care clinic has been advertising the availability of flu shots, and news headlines have been announcing that particular illness’ Read More…

When Should I Worry: Strep Throat

For decades, family doctors and pediatricians prescribed antibiotics for group A streptococcus (GAS) pharyngitis – or strep throat – not because of the irritation and discomfort caused by the resulting soreness and fever, but because of the potentially fatal threat of Acute Rheumatic Fever (ARF) and Rheumatic Heart Disease, a relationship that was discovered more Read More…

Make the Grade with these Back to School Health Tips

It’s that time again; time for backpacks, bus stops, and bewildered parents confronting algebra homework for the first time in 30 years.
