What is the initial treatment recommendation for allergic rhinitis?

Continuous or as-needed intranasal corticosteroids are the first-line treatment for allergic rhinitis.

How should a young child with an acute limp be evaluated?

In children younger than five years with an acute limp, no localizing pathology on examination, and no concern for infection, anteroposterior and lateral radiography of both lower extremities should be performed, starting with the tibia and fibula. Imaging of both femurs may be appropriate if radiography of the tibia and fibula is unrevealing.

When is surgery for anterior shoulder dislocation beneficial?

Surgical treatment should be considered in first-time anterior shoulder dislocation in active patients younger than 25 years because of the high recurrence rate.
