Choosing a pediatrician is an important and personal decision and we want you to feel at ease with the care you and your child will receive.

Giving medicine in the right way can help your child feel better.  Always look carefully at the label on the drug and follow the directions. Each type of drug has different directions based on the age and weight of a child. 

Fever, pain

Acetaminophen and ibuprofen can help your child feel better if your child has head or body aches or a fever. They can also help with pain from injuries such as a bruise or sprain and from soreness caused by a needle shot.

Cold and cough

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that OTC cough and cold medicines not be given to infants and small children because they have not been proven effective and can be harmful. Please call us to discuss other ways to treat cold symptoms, such as saline nasal sprays or drops for children and bulb suctioning of the nose for babies.

Allergy, itching

Antihistamines such as Diphenhydramine can be used to treat your child’s runny nose, itchy eyes, and sneezing due to allergies. They can also help reduce itching from insect bites and other rashes including hives and eczema. Unless it is an emergency, do not use Diphenhydramine under 1 year of age without consulting with a medical provider and avoid use in children under 4 years old (Reason: it's a sedative).
