Dear sir I have 4 years boy, some times his nose was bleeds blood, when he was sick. Why this is happening? Please let me know.

MBBS, MD

Most common cause is nose pickings by child .allergy in nose can also leads to nose bleed. I would suggest you to go for cause. This will lead to reduced bleed incidence.

My daughter is 10 year old, she has started developing her body. We are worried about her puberty. Kindly advise how to delay her puberty.

It is not possible or needed to delay puberty which happens earlier than olden times in this generation. Any hormonal or other means to delay will give serious harms.

Avoid feeding bottle & give her semisolid/ solid food in gradually increasing quantity at frequent intervals. Ensure she eats something every 2 hours. Expect good results in 3 months.

My grand daughter age 4 years after coming from school at 1300 hours and after lunch goes to sleep and doesn't wake up. Inspite of our all efforts she doesn't wake up.

I presume, she takes home food for her lunch and then she doesn't take dinner instead you give her milk and then she continues to sleep to get up early morning fresh and active. If so try not giving milk, she will wake up with hunger. After normal dinner (solid food) engage her in some sort of play or story telling, thus breaking a behavioral pattern. Then she can go to bed around 9 pm and wake up at 6-7 am. This is a behavioral problem and should be tackled like wise by increasing interaction skillfully.

My baby girl is3 and half months old. Red rashes near neck due to hot weather. Crying Because of pain. Sometimes blood came near neck. I am properly cleaning neck portion after giving her bath. But unfortunately red rashes not going. please suggest what it is and it's cure.

MBBS, MD-Dermatology,Venereology & Leprosy

Hi. From your description it looks like your baby has skin rashes due to sweating. This is common in children as their sweat glands are not well developed. Do not use to sweaters if the weather is not cold. Try to keep the baby in normal temparature room, neither very hot nor cold. Apply powder on the chest and neck area.

Exclusive breastfeeding to satisfaction of baby up to 6 months of age is only way to increase baby wt. If baby is fed properly, from 10th to 14th day of age, wt comes equal to B wt. Thereafter it increases by about 30 gm per day. Mother should take good nourishing diet. If you have any further queries please contact me privately through Lybrate.

You can keep paracetamol suspension which can be given in the dosage of 10 to 15 mg per kg body weight per dose and for cold you can put saline nasal drops into each nostril frequently.

Causes of Eczema

MBBS, DDV
Dermatologist, Mumbai
Causes of Eczema

Causes of Eczema:

The specific cause of eczema remains unknown, but it is believed to develop due to a combination of hereditary (genetic) and environmental factors.

Children are more likely to develop eczema if a parent has had it or another atopic disease. If both parents have an atopic disease, the chances increase further.

Environmental factors are also known to bring out the symptoms of eczema. These include:

  • Irritants - soaps, detergents, shampoos, disinfectants, juices from fresh fruits, meats, or vegetables
  • Allergens - dust mites, pets, pollens, molddandruff
  •  Microbes - bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus,viruses, certain fungi
  • Hot and cold temperatures - hot weather, high and low humidity, perspiration from exercise
  • Foods - dairy products, eggs, nuts and seeds, soy products, wheat
  • Stress - it is not a cause of eczema but can make symptoms worse
  • Hormones - women can experience worsening of eczema symptoms at times when their hormone levels are changing, for example during pregnancy and at certain points in their menstrual cycle.

My son is 8 years old. He looks slim and small. What are the foods to be given to him to increase his height and weight.

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
It' s difficult to opine on your perception, in absence of info about actual weight and height. Give him healthy home food, fruits, vegetables.

She may have stomach infection due to which she is having fever and UTI like symptoms .Of course she need antibiotic and antiemetic which you are already giving .Get blood test done for worms as well as it is very common in school going children, which causes repeated stomach infection.

There should be some genetic problem or inborn error of metabolism. Next time from the beginning consult a tertiary care hospital for neonates from the beginning. Also tissue biopsy done for the dead babies would have thrown more light. Is your marriage consanguineous, if so the chances are more. All the best, be careful from the beginning next time.

Why Is Breastfeeding Is A Saviour For Your Baby & You | World Breastfeeding Week

Why Is Breastfeeding Is A Saviour For Your Baby & You | World Breastfeeding Week
Why is breastfeeding so good for your baby and you

Breast milk is the best for babies and the benefits of breastfeeding are one too many. Breast milk not only supplies your baby with its requirement of vitamins and nutrients, but also gets the substances which fight diseases, making your baby healthy and strong.
Benefits of breastfeeding are:

1. Protects Your Body - Breastfeeding induces some changes in your body which you might not be very delighted to accept, but are for the sake of your baby. Did you know, these very changes benefit you as well. Studies have proved that women who breastfeed are protected against breast and ovarian cancer. The longer you feed, the more protected you are.
2. Reduces Stress - Adding to the benefits of breastfeeding you can derive, is the fact that it helps you reduce stress. It also lessens your risk of postpartum depression. Breastfeeding has been found to be relaxing since it releases the hormone called oxytocin. This release also helps the uterus contract.
3. Averts Risk For Baby - A breastfed baby has lower risk of sudden infant death syndrome.
4. Reduces Obesity Risk In Baby - Breastfed babies have lower chances of obesity. They are good at judging when their tummies are full and therefore stop drinking on time. This leads to healthy growth pattern. Compared to babies who are fed on formula, breastfed babies gain weight at slower speed, hence reducing chances of obesity later in life.
5. Increases Cognitive Skills - Multiple researches have shown that there is a direct relationship between cognitive development and breastfeeding.
6. Enhances Baby’s Immunity - Breastfeed babies are also said to be better protected from developing allergies as immune factors like secretory igA is present only in breast milk. It creates a protective layer on the babys intestinal tract. Babies who aren't breastfeed are known to fall sick pretty frequently as formula diet doesn't build their immunity as mother's milk does.
