POPULAR MEDICINE & HEALTH. Professor Alf Nicholson FRCPI, FRCPCH and Grainne O'Malley want to empower parents to help their sick children. Parents can do more to help if they have reliable information at hand. Alf Nicholson knows, from over 20 years' experience of working with children, that most ailments are minor and can often be treated at home. When Your Child is Sick catalogues the top 20 ailments your child will face as he/she grows. This handy reference book will help you identify what's wrong, how to treat the illness at home and how to know when you need to call a doctor. One of the most common questions Alf is asked by parents is, 'Is this normal?' To answer those questions there is a chapter on the normal stages of development. There are also sections that focus on the 'new illnesses' of childhood that can often be controversial: obesity, asthma, allergies and ADHD. This new and revised edition contains extra information on adolescent health and mental health.
