In a new regular feature on Southend News Network, our resident Facebook Mummy group paediatrician Michelle Garridge is answering your questions about the health of your children. You can contact us with any of your concerns at newsdesk@southendnewsnetwork.com

Although Michelle doesn’t have any official medical experience, she has seen more than 3000 photos on the local group Mums and Mummery South Essex, referring more than 87% of cases to A&E ‘jus to be sure hun.’

Hi Michelle. My little boy is six months old and he keeps having these periods of unconsciousness that can last for a few hours. They usually happen just after he has had a feed, and it always seems to be far worse at night. Thanks, Fanta-Mae, Basildon.

If I were you, I would take him to A&E just to be sure as your kid’s health is worth more than anything hun.

Hey Michelle. I’ve noticed that my toddler has two small growths under his willy inside a sort of skinny flap flap, and I have noticed the same thing on his Dad but they are bigger and more sensitive. I am worried that he has a hereddyterry condition and need advice. Thanks, Vimto-Ruby, Southend.

Hello Michelle. My baby is due to have his first vaccinations in a few days but I have heard from Shannatra on Facebook that they can actually make your babys even more iller than if they didn’t have the vaccinations at all and now I am worried. Surely all old diseases are gone now anyway and I always buy the good antybac hand wash from Poundland. Thanks, Capybara, Benfleet.

Hun, everyone knows that Mummas know best, and if you want to create a walking biohazard who relies on everyone around them for immunity for the rest of their life then I am sure that all of the other mummas will understand.
