parents should not consider an infant or a child at par like an adult

Its important that parents do not consider an infant or a child at par like an adult that they may be given OTC Medicines as and when they feel like. Children are not like machines but are like pets.. . Who cannot talk and the problem perceived by an adult non medico is likely to be a mere exaggeration of what the adult may be imagining with his re-callable experience of sufferings.. most remembered in last few days. Also what a child may tell as a symptom may not be exactly same what the child may be suffering from as a toddlers language development may not be appropriate to describe the exact suffering of child. A doctor often needs to weight the told symptoms, felt feelings and clinical signs before declaring a child to be manageable from home. Deciding about medicines also depends on level of acumen of doctor, his expertise and recent trends of the symptom in recent days apart from his knowledge beliefs and his readings of recent advances and guidelines. Degree alone can't be enough. DR Kondekar sharing his experiences
