Baby Atopic Dermatitis

March 24, 2019 Billy Kamerskin 0

Learning how to spot the symptoms of baby atopic dermatitis can help you act on it immediately. Atopic dermatitis in infants, which is also known as infantile eczema, can affect mostly the face and cheek of infants. It usually starts with itchiness and eventually with skin inflammation. If your baby is experiencing an infantile eczema, then he might be sensitive or allergy to a certain food he has just eaten or to the environment. It may also indicate that your baby will have certain allergies and sensitivities later on as he grows older.

Once your child experiences the first sign of infantile eczema, most probably he will be provoked to scratch his skin. Scratching can be dangerous as it may aggravate the infection. For your baby not to continue scratching his skin, you must dress him with a shirt that has hand flaps. You may also try to put mittens …

The evaluation has many steps, so make sure you child knows that they might be there for a little while. The audiologist will use an otoscope, like those found in most doctors’ offices, to look inside your child’s ears. He or she might pull on their ears to get a better view, but this is an easy and painless process overall. It is usually followed with a tympanometry test, which is used to test how the eardrum moves. To complete this test, the doctor will simply place a small plug in the ear for a few seconds to then see what is recorded on a screen.

The next step of the process may be a little more daunting for children. You may be asked to do what is called a pure tone threshold test, which involves sitting in a specially designed room and listening to beats of different frequencies through …

Fix Flat Feet

March 20, 2019 Billy Kamerskin 0
  • Keep them straight. Take a minute to evaluate your standing position. Stand up and walk around the room for a minute. Stop and look straight ahead. Now, without changing the position of your feet, look down and see which way your feet are pointing. For most people, if they were to draw an imaginary straight line out of their pinky toe they would find their feet are pointing outward – almost to the point of “duck feet”. If that’s the case with you, turn your foot at the ankle so that the imaginary line goes straight out in front of you – so that the lines from both feet are parallel and headed toward any object in the distance in front of you. Remember that position. Every time you stop to stand still take notice of your foot position and adjust accordingly.
  • Roll the knees out. Once your feet are
