I'm a 14 year old female who was diagnosed with Otosclerosis. If I have mild hearing loss in my left ear how long do you think it will take for me to go completely deaf in one ear? And also a stapedectomy was recommend as a surgical treatment if I wanted it by my ENT specialist. She told me that it.

Dear Lybrate User....before Stapedectomy you can try Homoepathic THIOSINAMAN 200, 5 drops in a cup of water early morning before brushing your teeth along with Homoeopathic FERRUM PIC 6X tablets, 4 tablets, thrice daily for at least 1 month....this combination has effectively increased the level of hearing in some cases of deafness due to otosclerosis in my experience

Bedwetting - Can Homeopathy Help in Curing it?

Children may run around having fun and growing in the process. Some children may be more active than the others and some may be more attentive at school. All children go through some sort of trouble while growing up. This is because of the drastic changes that the bodies of little children constantly go through. One such problem commonly faced by the children is bedwetting. This problem may be a common one, but it should be brought under control as soon as possible so that the children do not have to face social embarrassment as they grow older.

Apart from providing a healthy and happy living to the children, it may be essential to find a way of treatment that may not leave the child affected by the harmful ingredients of the regular allopathic medication. One of the safest and the most effective ways to be able to treat bedwetting is homeopathy. Homeopathy is a branch of medicine and treatment that works on the body of the user with the most natural ways. The medicines in homeopathy are made using basic ingredients from plants and other organic materials.

Homeopathy for children:
The use of homeopathy for problems that affect the children in particular is essential because of the fact that they have growing systems and the growth may get adversely affect with the strong and highly potent allopathic drugs. It is also important to understand the nuances of controlling the bedwetting issue in children and also know what the causes of the problem may be:

When the children are highly fatigued, they may wet the bed due to the deep sleep that they may be experiencing after a tiring time.
In times of winter when the cold is uncontrollable or much more than usual, it may be natural for some children to not be able to control their bladder.
In a lot of cases, the children may also wet the bed when they have had a scary or traumatic experience.

Just as the causes of the problem are varied, it must be realized that the medications are also supposed to be administered according to the issue.

Homepathic medication for betwetting
Homeopathy is a stream of medicine that treats the body in the most delicate manner, which is why it is a safe alternative for children. However, it must also be ensured that proper medical intervention is attained to start a course of homeopathic medication as well, so that bedwetting may be treated within a desired amount of time and the child may feel free from the embarrassment of wetting the bed.

Cough is only a symptom to clear any foreign material from the respiratory tract including phlegm. You should not try to suppress it. Rather you should give some medication which helps to bring out sputum easily.

My son 2 years 4 months old. He is thin and doesn't have good eater. Kindly suggest any good syrup for him.

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician
Ask Free Question
Basic principle is six meals per day,one large and one small meal. Alternative meals are heavy (3-4fist) size and light (2-3 fist) size. Minimum gap between meals is three hours and no intermediate eating (grasing). Allow your baby to eat himself and give him maximum 20 minutes and withdraw the good. Next meal must be offered 3hours later. No grasing. Most children are anaemic, so any iron syrup 5ml once a day is good enough to stumilate apetite.

Please do not give metrogyl without prescription, one of the side effect of it is abdominal pain and metallic taste. Here is what you should do, look for the signs of dehydration, (for signs of dehydration look my facebook page - pediatric department) if no signs of dehydration give syp zinc, ors and enterogerminia- means probiotic.

Hi welcome to lybrate stopping breastfeeding will be a tough especially at 2 yrs n more. First start with day. Give her something to eat when she wants to breastfeed. Distract her when she demands breastfeed you may have to bear with her tantrums when you refuse breastfeeding her. Have patience and it will take few weeks to completely stop breastfeeding.

To detect worms get his stool tested. Intestinal worms, round worms, tapeworms and toxacara worms can all cause a loss of appetite, nausea, tiredness, a painful or even distended tummy, fever, coughing, urticaria, and in the case the threadworm, an uncomfortable itch at night around the anus and/or the vulva. Alnendazole can be repeated six monthly, dose 2ml at bed time for kids above 2yrs after fat free meal.

You need to clean the eyes, and simplest remedy and safest remedy is to put breast milk in the eyes. Breast milk contains antibodies and can cure many eye infections. If he is still not okay, please show him to a doctor and get him evaluated for eye infection.

Breast and dairy milk is good and are gluten free. Avoid gluten containing product like wheat, rye, barley, and all their products. Gluten free products are fruit, vegetables, nuts, rice, beans and legumes. Gluten free diet can be well prepared at home. I do not prefer branded product so I do not name of market product. Pls check in the market.

Typically children can have variable bowel habits. Not going for potty upto seven days is normal. Check if she has hard stools because of which she may have a fissure. This makes it painful for the child to pass stools and the child avoids going to the toilet and the vicious cycle continues. See if there is bleeding too which would suggest she has a fissure. Solution: give her plenty of water to drink and feed her bananas. That should help. Otherwise you will have to start her on stool softeners.
