My child is getting cold always in winter but why it is for child not for elders?

Resistance through an airway is inversally proportional to fourth power of radius (Bernoullie's principle). Children has narrow airway which make it more susceptible for wheezing. Also the immunity at extremes of ages is less making them both children and old aged people more susceptible for infections.

Precautions During Dentation

BHMS
Homeopath, Bahadurgarh
Precautions During Dentation

Keep on giving a complete diet, milk, juice and common food to the child during dentition. Remember that the child did not sleep by keeping the milk bottle in his mouth. Keep the child neat and clean and stop him to eat soil. Massage with ice cube after tying it in cloth on the gums in the inflammation of the gums. Do not give more salty and sour things to eat. If the child has suffered from fever with cold and catarrh, checkup by a doctor and give treatment properly.

My daughter is advised to take attentrol10mg. She is 18 year old. She get lost and does not pay attention continuously. So doctor told us now that she is having ADHD problem. I just want to ask is it genetic or due to some other reason?

P.G.C.C. Pediatric, MBBS
Pediatrician, Delhi
The exact cause of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (adhd) isn't known. But it may run in families. Ongoing research is focused on finding the genes that cause a person to be likely to get adhd. A mother's use of cigarettes, alcohol, or other drugs during pregnancy may increase the risk for adhd.

Breathing through mouth is a sign of adenoid enlargement. So meet your ent and they would prescribe you proper meds for the same in form of nasal drops and anti histaminics. So all the best. Till you meet him try otrivin p nasal drops one drop in each nostril every four to six hourly.

Hi. If it's 9 kg. Please do not worry. It's a good weight. Child being thin does not mean ,baby is not healthy. Healthy baby can be thin, but should be active. He is already on a good diet. You can start on egg yolk, add ghee to his diet.

My 5 years old daughter is having burning sensation while passing urine? Does she have a urine infection? Also she is having frequent urination with only drops of urine coming out?

MRCPCH
Pediatrician,
The only way knowing whether it is a urine infection is by testing urine for nitrites, leucocytes, blood, pus cells and urine culture. In the meanwhile, make sure she is drinking plenty of fluids.

How To Prevent Sagging of Breasts?

How to prevent sagging of breasts?

Home remedies for sagging breasts

Breast sagging is a natural process that happens with age wherein the breasts lose their suppleness and elasticity. Breasts do not have muscle. They are made of fat, connective tissues and milk-producing glands, and they need proper care to keep them in good shape.

Yoga


The benefits of yoga for the entire body have been widely studied, and it is primarily a mechanism of toning the body and increasing flexibility. Some of that toning can occur within the breast, depending on which positions you commonly practice.

Massage

Massage your breasts at least 2-3 times per week with olive oil. It will help add firmness to the skin as well as improve the skin tone and texture. It will also tone your chest and increase the elasticity of the skin.

Pomegranate

Pomegranate is considered a wonderful anti-aging ingredient and can help prevent sagging breasts. Pomegranate seed oil is rich in phyto-nutrients that can lead to firm breasts.


    Make a paste of pomegranate peel and some warm mustard oil. Use it to massage your breasts in a circular motion for 5 to 10 minutes daily before going to bed.
    You can also use pomegranate seed oil to massage your breasts 2 or 3 times daily.
    Another option is to mix 4 teaspoons of neem oil with 1 teaspoon of dried and powdered pomegranate rind. Heat this mixture for a few minutes. Allow it to cool and then use it to massage your breasts twice daily for several weeks.


Avoid loose fitting bra / wrong bra size

Some women feel that they would feel comfortable if they wear loose bra. But this is totally a wrong step. You are going to invite your saggy breast by doing this. Avoid this and go for the best fitting bra to keep your breast stay upright and firm. For more details visit us at www.malhotraayurveda.in

How To Diagnose Asthma In Children, Before It Attacks?

How To Diagnose Asthma In Children, Before It Attacks?
How to diagnose asthma in children

Asthma in children under the age of 5 is a matter of concern. It is not a rare disease and early diagnosis is important. Common signs of asthma in children are:

1. Recurring bronchitis
2. Wheezing
3. Discomfort in the chest
4. Coughing
5. Trouble breathing

While some children have persistent yet mild symptoms, some children have severe attacks at times. Seasonal allergies and smoke make the symptoms worse.

What to notice?
While feeding an infant, if you notice that your child is facing shortness of breath, it might be a symptom of asthma. In a toddler, if your notice a decreased desire to run and play, or easy fatigue, then this could be a symptom of asthma. Asthma attacks for many children under the age of 5 are worsened when they catch cold or have any other respiratory infections. All these, if noticed should not be ignored and your child's pediatrician should be consulted.

The above mentioned symptoms were mild. Some children have it worse and the attacks can be life-threatening, needing immediate treatment. If your child is under the age of 5 and you see them doing one of the following, contact emergency services immediately:

1. Trouble in speaking because they have restricted breathing
2. When they are breathing in, the effort is so much that the abdomen is getting sucked in
3. Gasping for air.

Diagnosing asthma in a child can be tricky as symptoms like coughing, wheezing, etc can be for other conditions also. Once a child is a little older and if the symptoms persist, breathing and lung function tests are taken to gauge the situation.

I have already replied ur same query in which age of baby wasn't mentioned. Since baby is 1.5 years old and must be taking all nutritious diet, it may have not much impact on baby development. But it is advisable to consult doctor for ur own benefits.

Hi Doctor, my son age is 10 months old and 9 kgs weight. He has some nuro problem like cerebral dysfunction. Doctors ...
It is not clear whether c dysfunction is local lesion of brain which may cause paresis of related part or general which is called cerebral palsy which effect body. If muscle power is effected due to these reasons, complete recovery is not sure. But weakness or low power of muscle is due to nutritional deficiency, recovery is most likely good. Give him good protein diet like milk cheese, dal, chapati and all home made edibles vegetables supplement with multivitamin, iron, calcium. Massage shall help in fast recovery.
