Baby Teeth – what you need to know
When considering that the average life expectancy is over 80 years, it seems odd that we get two sets of teeth, but the first set lasts only until we are ten or so. Baby teeth develop whilst still in the womb, and we are born with 20 hidden in the gums. Our 32 adult teeth will replace the baby set between the ages of 6 and 20

Heat Rash or Prickly Heat is caused by sweat being trapped under the skin.
It is more common in children than adults, with the neck, shoulder and chest the most affected areas. It can come on in hot weather or after sport. There is an itch "lumpy" rash. Whilst uncomfortable, it is not serious.
An estimated 40,000 Australians have Parkinson's disease - a progressive degenerative neurological condition affecting body movement and control. It comes on gradually, and early signs may be very subtle.
