Do you know how to handle health emergencies in children? Get first aid information, and find out more about treating pain and fevers in kids.

Young kids often get fevers. The key is learning how and when to treat them so you can keep your child comfortable until they feel better.

Before you send the kids out to practice -- or just for a long day of play in the sun -- learn to protect your child against the dangers of dehydration and heat illness.

It's every parent's nightmare: a medical emergency involving your child. Whether it's difficulty breathing or a fall at the park, knowing when to call 911 can help you cope quickly and efficiently with childhood emergencies and stay calm under pressure.

Some parents may worry that their instinct to head to the ER after the pediatrician's office is closed will be questioned by the doctor on call if nothing serious turns up, but it's generally wise to trust your gut feeling.

Are achy legs keeping your child awake at night? He or she may have growing pains.

See signs of childhood illnesses, including fever, nausea, and constipation. WebMD shows you common symptoms and home treatment for your baby and toddler.
