If it's really 7 month of pregnancy then your baby's weight is quite normal for the gestational age. It is only in the last 6 week of pregnancy there is a rapid gain in the baby's weight.

Hi, my daughter is 21 months old. Since last one month or so she doesn't eat anything at all. We have tried everything from khichdi/dalia to paratha to tikki to smileys etc but it doesn't work. At times she just eats a bite or two, that too after a lot of effort. Could you please suggest how can we increase her appetite - any syrup etc. Thanks.

It's due to nld block, we used to say naasoor in local language. It's because a nasolacrimal duct might be blocked or narrow or underdeveloped. You can consult eye specialist to learn how to do nld massage. Antibiotics eye drops will help temporarily. If problem persist, nld probing or syringing would be the final treatment after 12 months of age. Best wishes.

Dear lybrate user if you r having sensorineural type of hearing loss no medicines will help to restore the hearing loss. Only in sudden hearing loss steroids help to some extent. So in your case the option left for you is digital programmable hearing aids. Most probably you have used analog one, go for digital programmable hearing aids. It will help for sure. Consult with me for further details.

Dear doctor, when we ask my 3 years and 6 months old son to sit for stool, he did not do so, when we forcefully make him sit, he starts crying. Sometimes even when we say him to sit down, just by saying he starts crying.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
He is constipated. If he is bottle fed stop it and give in cup or glass. He needs to take 10-12 glasses of water daily and include fruits and vegetables in his diet. Some tests have to be done and a safe medicine can be given after that, if problem is very severe. Take care. Ask privately.

My son was clapped by his dad on my sons back and thrown on chair after he cut his sisters hair. I recall my son crawling away and his dad running after him and clapping him on his back some more. Another occasion he put a whole pepper in his mouth because he was annoyed by his son. My son was diagnosed by PTSD. My son is petrified of seeing his dad and cries at the mention of seeing him. He talks of running away. As a result he pees and messes himself up. His dad wants to see him. His dad has admitted to having a anger problem. Do I force my son to go visit with him. I am concerned about his emotional wellbeing. What am I to do.

Hi! Your hubby's behavior is very rough and rude towards his son. One thing your hubby and you have to realize kids are naughty these days you need to change them affectionately and not through being very strict. Actually your hubby's behavior would affect your son mentally. It is advisable to keep Dad and son separately for some years until your son gets recovered from this incident completely. Because your son may turn to be a fearful guy in future either in society or college or in any situation because of his Dad's rude behavior. You can actually console your son, comfort him and change his mindset to a more social Behavior. You need to throw away the fear from his mind and make him more bold. You can make him participate in some extracurricular activities like sports etc to make him lead normal life. Try to be his friendly mother so that he succeeds in life. You need to make your son more friendly, frank and bold towards others. So let him be separate from his Dad for few years till he grows big enough to face situation. I do not know what is your son's age but I believe he is very young to handle his Dad's behavior. Take care of your son. Be friendly and make him a perfect guy in life to succeed. With regards, Psy. MSV.

Sudden Sensorineural Hearing Loss: Causes and Evaluation

Sudden Sensorineural Hearing Loss: Causes and Evaluation

SSHL is not like any other normal hear-loss trouble. Rather it is quite a severe condition. Sudden deafness can occur at any time due to several reasons. This trouble does not affect both the ears rather only one specific ear is usually affected, and thus this is one of the prominent signs that can help the doctors to understand that SSHL has occurred. 


What are the leading causes of this hearing loss?

  1. Head injury: If you have faced any severe kind of head injury ever, then it might bring SSHL. This is why you are suggested to get necessary treatment on time so that this kind of hearing loss can be avoided.
  2. Loud-noise exposure: If your ears are exposed to louder noises or sounds in a consistent manner, then there is a greater possibility of the occurrence of this hearing loss. Thus, you should stay away from unwanted noises. 
  3. Ageing: With the increase in age, hearing power slowly decreases. However, if you take proper precautions from the very beginning, then SSHL can be definitely avoided. 
  4. Blood-circulation troubles: Interrupted blood-circulation creates different physical troubles out of which hearing loos is one of the most prominent one. And if timely treatment is not provided, then it might get converted into SSHL. 
  5. Ototoxic medication: This kind of medication should not be continued for long without doctor's prescription otherwise SSHL might occur. 
  6. Lyme disease: This is a kind of disease, which occurs due to tick bites and this is pretty infectious in nature. Apart from that, this disease is now considered as one of the main sources of SSHL. 

How to evaluate this hearing loss? 

  1. History analysis: The history of the patient needs to be known first otherwise SSHL cannot be perfectly treated. If the history shows that the patient already has an existing trouble of ear loss for which SSHL has been proven, then in accordance with the same the treatment can be prescribed. 
  2. Laboratory and imaging: Laboratory analysis is one of the main methods for evaluating SSHL and necessary images of the ears boost the potentiality and importance of this kind of analysis to a great extent. 
  3. Quick evaluation: This kind of medical evaluation is mainly made on the basis of the symptoms. The doctors often follow the signs thoroughly in order to determine as to whether the patients have SSHL or not. This evaluation is highly supported by different medical tests that are prescribed by the doctor.

Rise in CRP alone can not diagnose a patient having sepsis. CRP can be rised in simple cold with high grade fever also and once the fever resolved and decreases CRP came down as you have mentioned. LRTI can be diagnosed by examining patients chest. It can be viral or bacterial and CRP can be rised in any of them. This much antibiotics or medication is not required in LRTI and none in viral. Sepsis is related to complications if it is in real present. Blood culture and patients symptoms both if looked in a 2 year child can confirm sepsis. Chest X-ray with examination of patient will confirm LRTI. In any case though if such big injections are started they have to be given for atleast 5 days if really needed. But problem what happened here is that antibiotics has been already started so blood culture if done at this stage may grow no organism. In this case patient can be looked symptomatically and has to be examined, get a blood culture if not done, Chest x ray is a must if some one said LRTI. All things need to be evaluated.
