Caring for children is a complex task, but now a Harvard clinical professor of pediatrics and a pediatric nurse specialist have compiled a comprehensive guide to symptoms and treatments for common childhood illnesses and injuries. Alphabetized and cross-referenced by symptom, each section includes a definition of the illness, immediate care, when to call the doctor, over-the-counter medications, and related health issues.
