I was reading Parenting magazine (dec/jan issue) and there was an article written by a doctor about this. Interesting enough he has a website. I had no idea real doctors have a helpful website for health and parenting questions.
Where do you go to check out what's up with your child (other than CM!) before going to a doctor?

Yes, I just google the ailment. That's how I found out that I had skin cancer on the rim of my eye. I went to two Opthamologists when finally after begging, I got a referral to an eye surgeon so I could get a biopsy done. Then went to the Surgeon who said it was nothing & that I was too young to have this. I demanded the biopsy which was excruciating since I had to have novocaine injected around my eye. Came up positive for carcinoma. All the Dr.'s were surprised but I knew it all along so I was prepared. Soon went in for Mohs surgery to remove it then into the Hospital for reconstruction. So I believe in being your own medical advocate.
