Continue breast feeding at every 2-3 hours. Check for nasal block, correct with saline nasal drops. Burp baby well after every feed. Put dulcolax suppositary if she is constipated. Check clothes if comfortable for outside temperature. Correct accordingly.

My baby is 9 months old and suffering from common cold and cough. Can I use ascoril ls drops for cough.

MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Ranchi
Hello thanks for the query the most common cause of cough and cold in this age is viral infection. With symptomatic management usually symptom subsides. You can give ascoril drops, nasivion pediatric drop will also help in early recovery. The symptoms usually subsides in 3-4 days. The baby should be investigated if symptoms persist for a longer duration. Watch for respiratory distress or decrease oral acceptance if you find any consult your doctor immediately regards.

My 4 year old son had suffered convulsion (due to high fever) at the age of year and half and advised valparin 200 upto the age of 5. But since then he is getting mouth ulcer (wound) almost every month which automatic heals in 7 days. He get fever for the whole period of wound. Kindly suggest a permanent remedy. Doctors only advise vitamins.

General Physician,
Have you done eeg test then send the report to me. Ulcers during fever are due to virus that caused fever.(exanthematous fever). If eeg is normal why valparin was given at all for simple febrile seizure? I do not understand.

Hi doctor my sister has new born baby. She is 24 year old. Her prbm is due to feeding it's paining in her right side nipple. Wt type of prbm it is? Is any infection. Pls give some solutions.

MBBS, MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Pune
Pain can be due to cracks in the nipple. It can be due to infection also. Apply your own milk after feeding the baby. The last part of milk is rich in fat and can help in healing. If there is any tenderness in breasts and discharge then please consult your doctor.

MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician,
Properly hydrate the baby with ors solution. That may be due to viral infection. As most of the watery diarrhea can be due to viral infection. Start zinc 20 mg daily for 14 days.

Can newborn babies have leukoderma? Can they be born with leukoderma? How early can one get leukoderma? What are the other diseases which we can confuse with leukoderma?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
It is possible that newborns baby have vitiligo. It is right most of the people get if before the age of 20. And as mentioned by anti-vitiligo about 95% of the patients get this disease before the age of 40. However it is difficult to diagnose vitiligo in small babies. So here is a easy tip for you to test vitiligo in babies. It is wood's lamp experiment. It is a special device used to diagnose different skin conditions. Other pigmentary disorders can be confused as aslo normal melasma.

Nature and bouts of cough is not clear from description. A specialist is already looking. Just try saline nasal drops 2 drops in each nostril 3 to 4 times in a day. Some time nose blocked may cause cough.

Recurrent abdominal pain is common in many children. They frequently keep complaining to gain the attention. If all reports are normal best way is to ignore.

My daughter is 6 years old, she suffered from saline infection after her premature birth in right arm. We already operated plastic surgery two times in pgi chandigarh but still growth of the arm is not as left arm and scar is wide please suggest us what to do ?

M.Ch - Plastic Surgery, MS - General Surgery, MBBS

Please ask your doctors in pgi why growth of that limb is less. Probably the infection has damaged the growth center of the limb bones. But don't worry once she grows older limb lengthening procedures and scar reduction procedures can be done. At present let her enjoy her child hood.

You don't feel any change because heaviness of breast is very gradual process. Milk will surely come if you desire it. So no anxiety apply to breast as possible after delivery. Thanks.

Hi doctors I have a question that I have a baby of 9.5 months and I want to know which calcium medicine should I give to my baby as she gone pranky just because her teeth are trying to come. But it takes some more time to come. But she feels like take everything in her month .What to do.

MBBS MD DCH, Dch
Pediatrician, Muzaffarpur
There is lots of variation in age of dentition as long as other milestone is normal. There is no need to give extra calcium and vitD3 if child has normal locomotor development. Keeping any objects in mouth is physiological as the child tries to explore the object through mouth. You have to be cautious to prevent the child getting hurt or infection by swallowing sharp and contaminated items

Safely you can give vitamin D 50000 units 2 times in a month to mother & vit D drops 1 ml daily to the child for 6 months.

My boy is 2.9 years weight is 11.5 kg every month fever coming blood test and xray normal t.b also tested no result every month used 30 ml anti boitc cold and cough syrup used I am feeling sir, please tell me any suggestion give me sir.

Hi, Most of the times during particular season children are prone to get fever frequently. Unless there is no major issue / any other symptoms during each time nothing to worry. Child's weight is ok now. Better give Vitamin D syrup (D3 MUST) 5 ml once a day & Zinc syrup (MINTONIA) 5 ml once a day for one month to improve the immunity. These are supportive measures. Prevention is best. Maintain good personal hygiene.

Is Your Child Suffering From Rickets? 3 Ways To Deal With It!

MBBS, MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Mumbai
Is Your Child Suffering From Rickets? 3 Ways To Deal With It!

A nutritional disorder, the problem of rickets occurs if your child suffers from a deficiency of calcium, phosphate or Vitamin D. It causes softened and damaged bones, skeletal deformities, impaired development of the bone's growth plate (a spot of growing tissue found near the end of a long bone in adolescents and children) and stunted growth.

Here are few very simple ways you can prevent your child from getting it:

1. Having Vitamin D and calcium rich foods - One of the best ways to prevent this nutritional disorder from affecting your child is by making sure he or she have foods that are high in Vitamin D and calcium. Egg yolks, fish oil or fatty fish like salmon and mackerel are some of the Vitamin D foods that your child can have to strengthen his bones. Even foods that have Vitamin D added to it such as cereals, orange juice, milk and infant formula can also be given to your child. Sources of calcium can be soyabeans, nuts, broccoli, cabbage, cheese and yoghurt.

2. Going out in the sun - Considered to be an excellent source of Vitamin D, getting your child exposed to sunlight is another excellent way of getting most of this nutrient, as well as preventing him or her from developing rickets. Although the exposure time may vary from individual to individual, about 10-15 minutes of sun exposure without sunscreen can help.

3. Having Vitamin D supplements - Even the consumption of Vitamin D supplements can reduce your child's risk of getting rickets. Since mother's milk contains less than the recommended Vitamin D amount, infants too need to be put on Vitamin D supplements of 400 IU each day. For teenagers and young children, the recommended dosage is 600 IU of Vitamin D every day. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a pediatrician.
