First confirm whether it is surely chicken pox. If it is, nothing to worry just take care of fever and cold chicken pox will run its course and fade away.

Exclusive breast feeding up to the age of 6 months. After that during weaning period available milk in house is preferred.

Nail biting is a sort of stress releasing, habit disorder, not harmful. Slowly children can come out of that with proper advice.

I suppose he is not taking any corticosteroid which increase desire to eat and induce increase in wt. If it is not I would suggest to consult pediatrician to rule out any hormonal disturbance and for consoling.

Baby boy 3.5 months old had his 3rd DTaP vaccine yesterday. Previous 2 doses were painless ones. Baby didn't get fever at all. Is it okay? Does it mean that the Baby is not producing enough antibodies to fight? Please clarify my doubt! Thank you.

Painless are called so because the painful (for mothers) side effects like fever irritability swelling are less. They are efficacious but now painful are recommended because they produce better immunity. But nothing to worry.

Umbilical cord usually falls off within 10 days. Delayed fall may be because of local infection. If infection is not not there, may require some immunological tests.

I am a 30 years old female with two kids, 4 years old child and 8 month old breastfeeding baby. All of a sudden there is extreme heaviness in my right breast, it almost feels like stone with lot of lumps. I fed my baby and still it is the same since almost 4 hours. There also seems to be a small boil sort of thing on my right nipple. There is also slight pain in the right breast. What could be the reason for this? How do I cure this?

It could be congested breast as they have not been emptied fully in time. Do hot water compresses & feed baby more frequently. Manual expression of milk will also help.

My grandson is 12yrs old he is diebtic type one takes insulin twice a day tell any other remedy.

Insulin is only treatment and best treatment. No side effects. Also you should go for better regimes than this twice a day adult type regime. Give pediatric regimes of three times a day if you want to avoid long term complications. Dont get fooled with anything other than insulin. There is nothing else consult a pediatric endocrinologist.

Is it necessary to get the vaccination of brain fever to the child of 5 months.We rae residing at indirapuram, ghaziabad. If yes, then which vaccination and how much dose do it have and approx cost for the same? thanks .

Three doses of hib vaccine is usually given in combination with dpt and/or hepatitis b. Cost depends on brand used and doctor's fees and could be around one thousand rupees. Other vaccine for meningococcal meningitis is used in high risk babies or those who demand and who can afford. All require 3 doses for primary immunisation at one month interval and a booster dose after one year
