Pediatric care is constantly improving and dealing with new challenges. New ideas, practices and research prompt continuous changes in our understanding and recommendations. These pages represent our best efforts but are in no way meant to replace the critical dialogue and recommendations of your pediatrician or healthcare professional. Information within the Health Library is believed to be reliable and generally in accord with the standards accepted at the time of publication. We offer these pages merely as starting points for care decisions and educational insights that parents, pediatricians, healthcare professionals and children must make together.
If you believe you, your child or someone you know suffers from the conditions described here, see your healthcare provider. Do not attempt to treat yourself, your child or anyone else without proper medical supervision.
