first thing's first... How much does it hurt?
The first and foremost concern for parents is just how much their child is suffering. It can always help for a child to have visuals in order to properly verbalize their pain. Please reference the Wong-Baker FACES(R) scale to help you make important decisions about your child's treatment. And remember to always consult with your child's physician before going through with any treatment plan.
For clarification of the pain scale, please visit The Wong-Baker FACES website.
