10 Perils of Summer and The Doctor is In

This is a sponsored post with Mums the Word Network and Doctor on Demand. All opinions are my own.




With Summer, comes plenty of bumps, bruises and other ouchies for our kiddos. No mom wants to constantly be running to the doctor or hospital for help! Let’s face it. We don’t need to go tot he emergency room for something that isn’t serious and sometimes its days before the doctor’s office can squeeze you in to see them. That’s why I’m totally in love with Doctors on Demand. On average it takes 3 weeks to see a doctor and over 25 days to see a psychologists in office.

Doctors on Demand recognized that there is a huge problem that has taken hold in this country; a lack of access to healthcare.  With Doctors on Demand, you speak with a board certified and licensed doctor or psychologists via a video call on your phone or computer. Easy peasy and a fantastic way for mom’s to handle all of those minor summer perils. They even have lactation consultants for the new and breastfeeding Mom and pediatrics for the kiddos! In fact, their mission is to “provide fast, easy and cost-effective access to some of the best doctors, psychologists, and other healthcare providers in the country.”


10 Perils of Summer:

  1. Bee Sting – Ouch! Bees, wasps, hornets and other stinging bugs are sometimes unavoidable.

  2. Sunburn  – Protect your skin from the sun, and avoid the most severe UV rays between 10am-4pm.

  3. Concussions – A concussion can result from a blow to the body or head, such as a fall from a swing set.

  4. Poison Oak & Ivy – In the woods everything is green and leafy and… poisonous? Some plants really make you itch.

  5. Jellyfish – They’re not really fish, and they don’t attack. But their tentacles pack a painful and potent venom.

  6. Tick bites – Lyme disease and other complications can arise from a nasty little tick bite. Ask a doctor.

  7. Sunstroke – Kids and seniors are at higher risk for heat exhaustion and sunstroke. Be aware.

  8. Sports Injuries – After a long winter, we’re in a rush to get outdoors. Sometimes leading to a trip and fall.

  9. Burns – Accidents can happen when we’re around campfires or BBQ grills. Get treatment right away.

  10. Kids bumps and bruises – Sometimes it’s a minor scrape, but it may be a more serious bruise.


As a working Mom, I sometimes don’t have the chance to give myself the quality of care I would like. Doctors are expensive, they take far too much time out of my day and honestly? I just can’t get away a lot of the time. With Doctors on Demand though I don’t have to. I can fit the doctor visit into my scheduled instead of the other way around! The doctors are fantastic and I’m not the only one that think so! Check out some of their recent reviews:
