My Child Is Sick!, 2nd Ed

By Barton D. Schmitt, MD, FAAP

Prevent unnecessary calls to your office when you share the wisdom of My Child Is Sick! with your parents. The well-organized chapters, condition-specific charts, and clear advice will empower parents to make the right decisions when confronted by common childhood illnesses. Dr. Schmitt's proven guidelines will help parents figure out whether to treat their child at home, call the doctor, or head to the emergency department. The newly updated and revised second edition has been rewritten to a sixth grade reading level, so the content is easily accessible for all parents. New topics in this edition include earwax buildup, mosquito bites, strep throat infections, and wound infections.
