If you want more information, ask your child's health care provider. No question is silly or dumb. If you do not understand something, ask your child's health care provider to explain it to you. Your child's health care provider will not know that you have a question unless you ask it. Many parents find it helpful to write down questions ahead of time. Some health care providers have special "call-in times" to answer questions.
