Pediatrician,
Developmental pediatrician with psychotherapists will be able to help you more than neurologist. In my opinion drugs might be useful along with therapy.

My 7 year old son is doing throat clearing and some coughing for about 3 months. Xray shows enlarged adenoids. Could it be the reason or it is a tick only. He has. No other issues.

MBBS, MD
Pediatrician, Gurgaon
It can be tick only. Adenoids in chest leads to poor drainage of mucus secretion. Which causes cough.

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.

Appendicitis in Children

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Delhi
Appendicitis in Children

The appendix is a small, finger-shaped pouch attached to the large intestine in the right belly area. It is a vestigial organ as it has no specific role to play in humans, but the organ is still seen, though in a very small size compared to the earlier living beings in the evolutionary chain. Acutely inflamed appendix is the most common cause leading to it removal, often seen in the ages of 10 to 19.

Causes: The appendix gets infected by two main reasons - general infection in the abdomen that reaches the appendix or blockage of the appendix leading to inflammation and swelling within it. The appendix is a blind pouch, and there is a good chance for its blockage from food particles, lymphatic tissue, or even sometimes feces. Some of the potential risk factors for appendicitis include a diet low in fiber, high in sugar, gut flora, and family history.

Symptoms/Diagnosis: In adults, the appendicitis has very characteristic symptoms including acute pain in the right upper part of the belly associated with fever and vomiting. However, in children, the pain may not be as tell-tale a sign but is still quite diagnostic of appendicitis. However, presence of the following symptoms together is surely indicative of appendicitis.

  1. Right abdominal pain, especially rebound tenderness, where pressure placed in the right upper part of the belly and released leads to excruciating pain.
  2. Fever, nausea, and vomiting
  3. Abdominal fullness or bloating
  4. Elevated white blood count (as with most infections)

Additionally, the younger the child, the symptoms are not very clear, but ultrasound will confirm the diagnosis. The inflamed, enlarged appendix will be visible on the images and could be surrounded by free fluid. CT scan also can be considered if required to confirm the diagnosis.

Treatment: As noted above, children present with symptoms that do not pinpoint to appendicitis. Treatment usually takes two routes:

If diagnosed as appendicitis before rupture, then surgical removal is the best method to contain its symptoms. Other symptoms like fever and nausea and vomiting usually subside a couple of days after the surgery.
If the appendicitis goes unnoticed and ruptures, then the intestinal cavity can get infected, which is called peritonitis. Earlier, the preferred approach was to control the infection and then go for removal. However, lately, removing the appendix followed by antibiotics to control the infection is the preferred approach.
The prognosis and recovery from appendicitis is very good. Deaths have occurred only in very small infants, where they are not able to pinpoint the area and therefore it can go undiagnosed, leading to rupture and subsequent death.

Early identification is the key to proper identification, immediate treatment, and complete recovery from appendicitis.

Hello, Lybrate user, conception is seldom, as menstrual cycle is retained upto six months during lactation period. However, pregnancy cannot be over ruled. You should go for a home pregnancy test to ascertain the exact position, please. Tk care.

Hi, I gave birth to baby boy in november 2014. Breastfeeding for my baby is very less. Giving external feed. How to increase my breastfeed. Please suggest.

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Faridabad
Most important is being happy, frequent breast feeding, empty the breast every time. If you have to top feed then first breast feed then immidiately top feed,next time repeat it. If you breast feed and next feed is top feed then gradually your breast milk will decrease further. Fenugreek and zeera tab perinorm may help to increase the breast milk.

Hello I won't get worried for mild abnormal sound in heart if the echo is normal. Mild abnormal sound (murmur) can be there due to increased flow across valve in case of fever, anemia in the absence of cardiac abnormality. Similarly transient decrease in heart rate is also normal if there are no associated symptoms. So you need not to worry if baby is active, playful and there is no breathing problem. Regards.

My baby born with 2.5 kgs. Please guide me how to put on his weight. Wat diet my wife has to follow.
If your baby is 6months old you should introduce semisolid diet like khichdi, dal rice, mashed potato, mashed fruits, thick milkshakes, soups, fresh fruit juices, vegetable pulao everything in semisolid consistency. Do not force feed your child. Continue mother's milk. Mother has to take nutritious diet, milk and milk products, paneer, sprouts, fruits, balanced diet, all leafy vegetables. Have food and feed your child with a very relaxed mind. See your child growing happily.

For constipation give high roughage diet like fruits and vegetables, roti. Give more fluids including water. If he is constipated for along time rectal enema once to evacuate the bowels. Then you can use glycerine suppository perrectal daily for 3 days and then as per need. Give syp lactulose 5ml twice a day for about I month till he starts passing normal stools daily. Important to remember is that high roughage adequate diet is most important.

Please try to avoid medicine use without doctor advice. Bowel movements 3-4 times per day in a 2 month old is very normal if consistency is not watery, if child is passing urine 5-6 / day should not make you worry.

My child is hyperactive. What should l do? which food is good for him? what is the restoration? help me please.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (adhd) is one of the most common childhood disorders and can continue through adolescence and adulthood. Symptoms include difficulty staying focused and paying attention, difficulty controlling behavior, and hyperactivity (overactivity). Adhd has three subtypes: are the behaviors excessive and long-term, and do they affect all aspects of the child's life? do they happen more often in this child compared with the child's peers? are the behaviors a continuous problem or a response to a temporary situation? do the behaviors occur in several settings or only in one place, such as the playground, classroom, or home? the most common type of medication used for treating adhd is called a" stimulant" although it may seem unusual to treat adhd with a medication considered a stimulant, it actually has a calming effect on children with adhd. Many types of stimulant medications are available. A few other adhd medications are non-stimulants and work differently than stimulants. For many children, adhd medications reduce hyperactivity and impulsivity and improve their ability to focus, work, and learn. Medication also may improve physical coordination. You can ask me privately for any further advice.
