Gastro-Oesophageal Reflux In Babies - Ways To Treat It!

M.D(Pediatrics), MBBS

Gastro-Oesophageal Reflux In Babies - Ways To Treat It!

Which baby doesn't spit up their food! This is usually not a reason to worry, but if this spitting up is chronic and is accompanied by other symptoms it is known as Gastroesophageal reflux disease or GERD. Severe GERD can cause weight loss and breathing problems and thus, should not be ignored.

Reflux occurs when food is pushed out of the stomach and back up the esophagus. This is usually because the digestive system in babies is not yet fully developed. Vomiting often during the day is one of the most common symptoms of GERD. Other symptoms include:

  • A persistent cough
  • Choking or gagging while eating
  • Refusing to eat
  • Crying while feeding
  • Heartburn
  • Pain in the stomach

Most cases of GERD can be diagnosed by its symptoms and a look at the baby's medical history. In some cases, additional tests may be required, such as:

  1. Barium swallow: The child is given a chalky substance to drink. This highlights the esophagus, stomach and upper part of the small intestines in a special X-ray. It is used to check if there are any blockages in the digestive system.
  2. pH probe: A long, thin tube with a probe at one end is put down the child's throat. This is kept in the esophagus for 24 hours. The probe measures the levels of acidity in the stomach. This test is usually done when the child complains of breathing problems along with reflux.
  3. Upper GI endoscopy: Here the doctor puts a thin, flexible tube down the child's throat. At one end of the tube is a camera that allows the doctor to look into the esophagus, stomach and small intestine.
  4. Gastric emptying study: One of the causes of reflux is the slow emptying of the stomach. To check this, the doctor will mix a radioactive chemical with the baby's milk that allows a special camera to follow its path down the digestive system.

In most cases, GERD can be treated by making a few lifestyle changesSome of these are:

  • Raise the head of the baby's crib
  • After feeding the baby, do not let him lie down, but hold him upright for half an hour or so.
  • Change his feeding schedule
  • Ask your doctor if you can try giving him solid food. Else, check if you can thicken his feed with cereal.
  • Make the baby burp after feeding

Most infants outgrow this condition within a year, so do not stress yourself and enjoy life with your baby. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Meet a pediatrician. Pain in abdomen might be due to simple gastritis, worms in GIT etc etc. Better to show to a pediatrician. If needed he may get a sonography done to rule out any major problem. If Temperature is >100 then consider it as fever. Doctor might advice for blood investigations if needed. Do not try to avoid a doctor. Meet one as soon as possible.

Chicken Pox In Children - Causes And Symptoms

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Jaipur
Chicken Pox In Children - Causes And Symptoms

Chickenpox is a contagious viral disease that mostly affects children. It appears on the skin as rash-like itchy red spots that can develop into blisters. The main parts of the body that get affected are the face, scalp, chest, belly, back, arms and legs. It generally starts in one location and cyclically spreads to other parts over the course of 1-2 weeks time.

Chickenpox is uncommon now since children are routinely immunised against it these days. Yet outbreaks keep occurring from time to time, for the cases who haven't been vaccinated.

What is the cause of chickenpox?

  •  Chickenpox is caused by the varicella-zoster virus (VZV) and spreads through direct contamination.
  •  If the blister breaks open and the virus infects the surface of objects, it gets transferred when one touches the object and then touches any body part, thereby spreading through contact.
  •  It also spreads through aerial contamination when a person infected by it coughs or sneezes, which allows the virus to extend to various surfaces.
  •  When an unimmunised child with a weak immune system comes into contact with an adult suffering from a shingles (a type of a viral infection in adults caused by the same chicken pox virus) rash, the child is susceptible to contracting the chickenpox virus.

Now let's turn our attention to the symptoms of this disease in children.

The symptoms of chickenpox do not manifest themselves till 2-3 weeks after contamination. The exact time required for the signs to show varies from person to person and is known as the 'incubation period'.

Following are the symptoms of chickenpox in children:

  •  Exhaustion and lethargy
  •  Swollen glands.
  •  High fever accompanied by a headache and body ache
  •  Loss of appetite
  •  Signs of dehydration
  •  The eruption of red rashes and fluid-filled blisters on the skin, which may become painful
  •  Chest pain and breathing difficulty, although it is less common

The symptoms of chickenpox tend to be milder in children than in adults and hence, identifying the signs is harder and may take longer.

I am having calcified granuloma i'm my Brain What does it mean? Is it dangerous for my body as I am a 17 years old boy!

Diploma in Diabetology, Pregnancy & Diabetes, Hypertension, Cardiovascular Prevention in Diabetes ,Thyroid
Sexologist, Sri Ganganagar
Because it usually takes some time for calcium to be deposited in a granuloma, it is generally assumed that a calcified granuloma is an old granuloma, or an old area of inflammation. For example, a calcified granuloma in the lung may be due to tuberculosis contracted years earlier that is now inactive and dormant. Since a granuloma is a space occupying lesion in the brain, there are chances that it may press upon the adjoining tissues to produce symptoms. Therefore, most of the patients presenting with this problem are given an anti-epileptic medication as a prophylaxis. Some patients may require pain medications for headaches or other symptoms they are facing. The treatment is essentially controlling the symptoms, to start with. Next step is assessing whether the granuloma is active or not. If active, cause of granuloma formation is investigated and this underlying cause is treated. It is possible that the infection is still there and actively causing inflammation in the brain tissue. This may be a bacteria, virus or even a parasite. Accordingly, medicines are given to combat the infection. Anti- inflammatory medicines are given to reduce inflammation and to prevent the granuloma from increasing in size. Sometimes, if the location of the granuloma permits, surgical excision of the lesion may be done Inactive or dormant granulomas tend to shrink in size on their own. Except for symptomatic treatment, no medical intervention is required for them.

My baby is 5 month old, while breastfeeding I am having severe pain around my nipple, and itching too. please suggest me some remedy.

MBBS
General Physician, Fatehabad
Hi lybrate-user, Nipple sore is a horrible condition for some. Many people give up breastfeeding because of the pain. You have this throbbing pain and at the other end you have this darling baby waiting to be fed. Breastfeeding is very essential and nipple sore can treated, here are some home remedies: • Using lanolin creams such as Nipcare for basic sores • If it’s worse try not feeding on the side which is bad and use only one side. Hand express from the bad side. Let it heal and then you can continue. You can get lopsided, but things will get back to normal • Contact la leche league leaders close to your area. They are ready to help through phone. They are a breast feeding support organization and they are doing a great job. Contact me if your looking for numbers to call. • Use a nipple shield. • Apply apricot oil. And here is the best and most effective remedy: • Burn dry coconut on direct flame till it chars. Take a stone or on a hard surface. Apply ghee and rub this charred dry coconut, till you get a paste. Apply this on the sore nipples and let it dry. Wash before the baby feeds. Even if there are some traces it is safe so don’t worry. Hope this helps. Good Luck.
