7 Year-old with Digestive problems....could It Be Celiac or Chron's?

I am the parent of 3. My oldest, a 7-year-old girl, has had gastrointestinal problems for about 3 years. Lots of pain varying in severity, and hard for her to describe. She always pointed to different locations. It happened most days, with a few little breaks, but mostly she had just chronic pain. Also, I journaled things but could never find a food or food group that caused the problem. After a year of this off-and-on pain, I knew things weren't normal. She went to an allergist, and tested negative for the major food allergies. (he...

9 Year Old Daughter Maturing Too Soon

I have a beautiful 9 year old daughter maturing quickly. No, she has not started her period, but she is developing in all the other areas. Her pediatrician says it is "normal", but I am don't agree. I am looking for a endocrinologist (pediatric), but until I get in to see a doctor, I wanted to know what other moms are experiencing with your young daughters maturing.

Hives! Hives! Hives! I Keep Breaking Out in Hives!

Have any of you every had problems with Hives? I keep breaking out with them on my neck. My husband thinks it's stress. I've made sure my lotions & soaps are free of dyes & smells, but I still keep getting them. Are there certain foods that make you get hives? Has anyone else had this problem? If so, what did you do? I buy lots of cortizone & take Benadryl, but I'd like to stop it from happening, not treat the symptoms.

2 Y/o with Wart on Hand

My 2 year old daughter has what appears to be a wart on her hand, right in the crease where her ring finger meets her palm. It is fairly large, she picks at it occasionally but it doesn't otherwise seem to be bothering her. I am hesitant to ask to have it removed because not only would that be probably traumatic, but it seems like it would be a very difficult location to keep bandaged and cleaned afterwards. The over-the-counter wart creams all seem to contain salicylic acid, which my older daughter is highly allergic to, so I am hesitant...
