Cheek rashes may e associated with staph infection. Thus nail rubbing increases chances of infection. Better to use calamine lotion preparation if noinfection and wash face two three times with dettol or lifebouy soap. It will help to heal.

HIs weight is NOT seriously low. you have to check his TSH to see if ther is hypothyroidism as the cause of poor eating. Or else it is the food fas or refusal shown by many children. You make sure his blood HB and TSH is normal

My 6 weak old daughter keeps on crying while she awake or keep sucking milk otherwise she sleep. What should I do to keep her calm.

Pediatrician, Pune
See that she latches on the breast properly without leaving any gap, otherwise she sucks in air along with milk, excessive ingestion of air causes fullness, colic, crying, burp her well after feed at least for 20 mins keep her upright, after you have burped her keep her in propped up position of at least 45 degree angle, don't give anything other than breast milk no janam ghutti, grape water, plain water, don't be anxious, relax, your anxiety is realised by the baby making her more anxious, and making her cry - just relax, take support from family.

What should I do for a baby who has a dyslexia problem? Please suggest me a treatment.

M.Sc - Applied Psychology, Advanced diploma in counselling psychology
Psychologist, Mumbai
Now a days there are many ways to deal dyslexia. (1) first, we have to confirm its dyslexia, because sometimes at this age it is normal that some children may be slow to pick up but later they caught up. (2) if confirmed that the child has dyslexia then you can go for learning disability certificate. (3) then you can go for remedial teaching which takes care of such children.

You can try but chances of increasing production of breast milk at this stage is a little difficult. But you must continue giving as much breast milk as possible and then supplement with formula.

Nature's Cavity Fighter

BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Nature's Cavity Fighter

Fluoride is a mineral that helps fight tooth decay. It is found in public water supplies, toothpaste and many other dental products.

Often called, “nature’s cavity fighter,” fluoride helps repair the early stages of tooth decay even before the decay can be seen. Research shows that fluoride helps prevent cavities in children and adults by making teeth more resistant to the acid attacks that cause cavities. When you brush your teeth with fluoride toothpaste, use other fluoride dental products, and drink water with fluoride you are preventing cavities and strengthening your teeth’s outer surface, called enamel.

If you have a good chance of getting cavities, your dentist can apply fluoride to your teeth during your dental visit. Your dentist might also tell you to use a special fluoride rinse, paste or gel at home

With one sex there may not be much chance of pregnancy and she is lactational anovulatory period and that is why mc was just one day. As a breastfeeding mother she need not take any pill. Safe and best is to insert an intrauterine device like iucd (copper t)

Hi my children s are active and healthy. My son is 7years weight 20kg. My daughter 9years 30kg. Just want clear that they are in normal weight or abnormal any healthy drinks for childrens and as well as for me with milk.

DNB Paediatrics, DCH, MBBS

Hello lybrate-user, the weight parameters of both your children are in the normal range. Since your daughter maybe approaching the pubertal age group soon, that's when the growth spurt happens so make sure you give a healthy balanced diet comprising of more of proteins like milk and milk products, soyabean, eggs, paneer etc in their daily meals. Also exercising is a must. 3 major meals and two snacks will be helpful in providing adequate nutrition. You could give vitd and calcium supplements to meet the daily requirements. Hope that helps.

Hi doctor. Is lactogen safe for new born babies. My baby weight was 4.25 kg while delivery. Now it's 4 kg. My feeding is not sufficient for him it seems. So if it cries in hungry, we give lactogen often. Is it safe or it has side effects?

Babies tend to loose about 10% of their birth weight in 5-7 days which is soon regained. If child is still loosing weight then you may have to supplement the feeds. Though lactogen is safe it's not best food for babies. Best is breast feeding only. Drink plenty of water, eat healthy diet, relax and keep yourself active and mobile. All these things help on increasing milk outflow. And of course breast feed the baby every 2 hrs. Absolute no to bottle feeding. Add on feed should be given with katori spoon.

Your son has got delayed speech and language skills, it could be just expressive delay where child understands everything but doesn't respond verbally. If he has got expression only at word level then kindly see some speech therapist. You can contact me back for further help.
