This site offers information about children, babies, and kids -- their care, treatment, diseases, illnesses, and other medical concerns. It is meant only to satisfy the information needs of parents about their children's health, diseases, vaccination, and related subjects. While every effort has been made to ensure accuracy of the material about diseases, illnesses, and treatment, the author accepts no responsibility for, and certainly does not recommend, the use of this information for the treatment of sick children.

No information available on this web page, or on others, can replace the examination and treatment by an expert doctor or pediatrician. It is not sensible to try to diagnose your child's disease off a web page (or from a book), and if your child is acutely ill, go to a hospital immediately.
