ASQ and MCHAT Developmental Screening

A few weeks before your appointment for ages 4 mo, 9 mo, 12 mo, 24 and 36 mo checkups, you should receive an email or phone call regarding the ASQ screening. At the 18 month well visit, a similar form, the MCHAT—a specific screener for Autism—will be given to you at your appointment.

The most common are headache, fever, sore throat, cough, chills and body aches. Patients this year have reported headache as their first symptom.

Bugged by Bug Bites?

Bug bitesMost insect bites usually cause a small red bump and begin to disappear the next day. Often times, it may look like localized hives, one large or several small ones. The red bump is the body's allergic reaction to the venom injected by the insect.

For itchy insect bites, apply calamine or a 1% hydrocortisone cream. If the bite is extremely itchy, try an oral antihistamine, like Benadryl.

For painful insect bites, give Tylenol or Advil for pain relief. You can also apply an ice cube in a wet washcloth for 20 minutes.

Insect repellents protect against biting insects, mosquito, chiggers, flies, ticks, and fleas. Choose one that contains at least 10% DEET and no more than 30%.

  • Do not use on infants under 2 months of age.
  • Do not use a combination sunscreen/bug repellent product. Sunscreen should be reapplied often.
  • Products with DEET should only be applied every six hours.
  • Do not apply to the hands if your child sucks his fingers or thumb.
  • Bugs can be attracted to lotion, perfume or hair spray. Use sparingly.

If you have any other concerns or questions, contact the office.
