Do you have a go-to source for your urgent medical questions? If you were to have your child run inside with a swelling spot that perhaps is some sort of bite, would you know what to do or how to find out the possible cause? If your child came holding their chest complaining it hurts them what is your first reaction? Would you think indigestion or panic? The Big Book of Symptoms: A-Z Guide To Your Child’s Health will become your go-to source. In fact, I can’t help but keep this book in mind for any future baby showers I attend because this needs to be a gift every Mom should receive!
This book is very well organized with charts on every topic. If you find a rash or discolored area on the skin and you head to the Chapter titled Skin Problems or perhaps Itching you will find both a discussion and coping suggestions as well as a chart to locate your concern and find possible causes and the actions you need to take. Below is an image from the book of the section for Skin Problems:
