Once you have stopped breast feeding your child then you can consider breast tightening with lift and enhancement and also tummy tuck surgery which will correct the problems and make you feel better.

Whooping Cough in Kids - How It Can Be Treated?

Whooping Cough in Kids - How It Can Be Treated?

Whooping Cough (another name for Pertussis) can be termed as an infection to the respiratory system caused by the bacterium Bordetella Pertussis (B. pertussis). It generally affects infants (below one year of age) and who have not yet been immunized; also kids between 11 to 18 years of age whose immunity graphs are on a downward spiral.

What are the Signs and Symptoms?
Initially, whooping cough produces signs and symptoms that may just seem to overlap with those exhibited during the average cough and cold; mild coughing, sneezing, runny nose, low fever, etc. These persist for about a week or two and then slowly, there is the onset of the dry, irritating cough which again turns to prolonged coughing spells. The child’s face may seem flushed with a purple hue. The child may also vomit or make the distinctive whooping sound at the end of one such spell. Breathing difficulty can be another issue.

What is the Diagnosis?
The doctor performs an initial check-up followed by tests of mucus sample from the nose or throat. The mucus is checked for the presence of the Bordetella pertussis bacteria. To make a more thorough diagnosis, a blood test is also advisable.

What is the Treatment?
Hospitalisation might be required in case of acute distress. Respiratory support may also be provided if required. If there is intense dehydration, intravenous (IV) fluids may also be administered. As this disease is on account of a bacterial infection, antibiotics will be needed. But these will just treat the immediate effects and the cough cannot be completely done away with.
 

What can be the Possible Complications?

The possible immediate complications include:

  1. Brain Damage
  2. Pneumonia
  3. Convulsion
  4. Haemorrhaging in the brain

What can be the Prevention?
Vaccination is needed in order to prevent whooping cough. The vaccines are advised to be administered at the age of two months, four months and six months respectively. The 1st booster dose is to be given at 16 to 18 months age and 2nd booster dose is given on 5 year completion of age. An optional booster may be given at 10 year age. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a general physician.

My grand daughter is 4 months old, she rejects breast feeding for last 10 days (nursing strike), kindly what can be the reason, what's the remedy?

Pediatrician, Pune
If you have started bottle feeding, then she has chosen the easier alternative and not taking breast feeds, giving breast feeds is the best option for babies at least till 1 yr of age.

Most likely he had food or water contamination may be due to outside food, water and heat. Now you can give him electoral water and sporolac tablet and soft diet like curd rice dal water coconut water etc. Always try to avoid outside food and water.

Hi my child is 10 months old and he is not eating anything. Nor drinking milk. He is just picking up the rubbish from the ground and eating. What should I do now. Can you recommend any tonic. Should I go for it.

hi don't worry, it's part of child's motor skill development. You can take a small sheet of food grade plastic , wash it with some mild dishwasher liquid. now you can spread the eatable over it so that he can play and eat. Along that, take the food in another bowl too, involve him in talk and offer this food in between . If he spits, don't give any reaction. Just be continue with your talks and offer again after a minute or so. In a month or so, when he will be expert in that skill of picking up things, he will leave that habit too. And to improve the food intake, offer him food in every 2 hours. Try to make one sweet and salty food every time . Offer him both and fill his stomach which he likes the most. Along this, you can gave him "Arvindasava" twice a day. it's natural and herbal tonic for kids to improve hunger.

Hello doctor, My daughter is 3 years old and yesterday I got some reasons what could be symptoms of autism. 1) she does not have eye contact except her parents with other people, 2) does not want to play with other children 3) enjoying to watch TV and phone when she watching in phone she does not want to give it back 4) become very stubborn and feel irritated and started crying to get any thing 5) speak everything even the Hindi mantra also but sometime the speech is not so clear 6) sometimes live in her own world in school Are all these symptoms of autism and the therapy could help my child to be normal as other children. And can my child also study in regular schools. Thank you.

Yes. It may be autism. Visit for a detailed neurodevelopmental and speech therapy consultation. She may also need neuro occupational therapist if the diagnosis confirmed by clinical examination. Most kids with autism who have fluent speech do well with adequate support. Do not get scared. Also do not feel that child is too special or superkid just because there is suspicion of autism. Your kid is normal till evaluation. There are some medicines that may be added for support.
