If no runny nose is there. Then commonest cause is blocked nose. Rectify it with using nasivion p nasal drops. I am sure soon it would be fine. Regards.

General Physician,
It is normal for babies to cling on mums for sleep and you try to make hi comfortable and as he grows up he will leave this habit. Do not give pacifiers which is unhealthy.

Your child needs more fluids and roughage in his diet. Ripe papaya/ stew / mashed boiled spinach to be introduced. Now give Nulax 2.5 ml daily for 3 days

How Breathing Through the Mouth Affects Oral Health in Children

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, BDS

How Breathing Through the Mouth Affects Oral Health in Children

Mouth breathing in children is very common and while a kid with open mouth might seem cute, it is not always the case. The parents need to be made aware that a child breathing through the mouth all the time is not normal and it is high time they find a way to manage it.

A little understanding of the effects of the mouth breathing habit on the child's health in general and oral health in particular can be an eye-opener for the parent. For an educated person, there are obvious symptoms, which indicate that the child is a mouth-breather.

These symptoms include:

  1. Dryness of the lips
  2. Crowding of the front teeth
  3. Snoring
  4. Sleeping with the mouth open
  5. Recurrent infections of the airways including sinusitis and middle ear infections
  6. Bad breath

Common causes include:

  1. Chronic nasal obstruction/congestion because of which the child is not able to get enough oxygen through the nose.
  2. Enlarged tonsils or adenoids
  3. Thumb or finger-sucking habit
  4. Recurrent respiratory infections

Effects of mouth breathing on oral health:

Mouth breathing may seem like a harmless habit, but has serious effects on the oral and dental health of the child. Some of them are discussed below.

  1. Dry mouth: A constantly open mouth can lead to drying up of the saliva. This in turn leads to reduced effects of saliva including the flushing effect on the bacteria and the food deposits. This leads to increased chances of tooth decay and gum diseases.
  2. Tooth decay: With reduced saliva, the pH remains acidic for a longer period of time, leading to increased chances of tooth decay.
  3. Gum diseases: Reduced amounts of saliva also leads to increased gum disease and periodontal disease as the bacteria are not removed and have a conducive environment to act upon.
  4. Facial development: A mouth breathing child maintains a different posture than a nose breather. This leads to a narrow and long face, flattened nose, smaller nostrils, reduced facial tone, thin upper lip, pouty upper lip, and a small lower jaw.
  5. Speech: An open mouth causes the tongue to thrust into the palate when talking. This leads to altered pronunciation of some sounds; especially and can cause lisping.
  6. Braces: Mouth breathing causes multiple challenges including prolonged treatment period, inability to close the gaps, reduced stability of the realigned teeth, and increased chances of relapse. The added complication of increased gum disease and tooth decay makes it worse. The habit needs to be corrected first before going in for braces.

If that sounds like a long list, they are not all inclusive. Early intervention in the habit can correct and negate all these effects. Talk to your dentist to know how to help your mouth breathing child.

Pls help me My 19 days old baby is on breast feed, he feeds 2 hrs but still hungry then I have to give him bottle 80 ml water n 3 spoon of Farex. What should I do? How much milk is needed for him?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Babies crying is not always for feed. In the first 3 months crying is more in some babies. It can be due to wet napkins and need for urinating. You have to give other feeds with s spoon and not bottle.

I need a vaccination schedule for my 2 and 1/2 year old and 11 years old girl child. For the youngest one, I have missed the typhoid 1 dose.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
You van give the missed dose Birth HepB: Hepatitis B vaccine; ideally, the first dose is given at birth, but kids not previously immunized can get it at any age. 1–2 months HepB: Second dose should be administered 1 to 2 months after the first dose. 2 months DTaP: Diphtheria, tetanus, and acellular pertussis vaccine Hib: Haemophilus influenzae type b vaccine IPV: Inactivated poliovirus vaccine PCV: Pneumococcal conjugate vaccine RV: Rotavirus vaccine 4 months DTaP Hib IPV PCV RV 6 months DTaP Hib: This third dose may be needed, depending on the brand of vaccine used in previous Hib immunizations. PCV RV: This third dose may be needed, depending on the brand of vaccine used in previous RV immunizations. 6 months and annually Influenza (Flu): The flu vaccine is recommended every year for children 6 months and older: Kids younger than 9 who get the flu vaccine for the first time (or who have only had one dose before July 2016) will get it in two separate doses at least a month apart. Those younger than 9 who have had at least two doses of flu vaccine previously (in the same or different seasons) will only need one dose. Kids older than 9 only need one dose. The vaccine is given by injection with a needle (the flu shot). The nasal spray form that was available in the past is not currently recommended because it was not found to be effective enough in recent years. 6–18 months HepB IPV.

It appears if your child is using left hand more than right hand that is giving impression of weakness of right hand. It is just possible that your baby may become left handed. Even then give message and active & passive movements to rt hand beside good nutritious diet.

Hello, it's little difficult to diagnose the problem. May be she's hungry or may be she' is having pain in abdomen or she's wet or a baby cries before every poo and pee which is normal. Need to find out the cause. Consult a paediatrician.

My 3 year old is sick with a temperature of 100 degrees she can not keep anything down including liquids. What should I do?

BHMS, MD - Homeopathy

100* is not a very high temperature. Maybe she has congestion in the chest or has become too weak. Try giving her warm water in sips. Soups, light food. Pl show her to a local paediatrician. Always better to consult as vomiting everything not very good.

Your wife must have got infected about 2 weeks ago and developed symptoms today. 9 weeks old baby also would have come in contact with same same person from where your wife got infection. Vaccination status of mother againest chicken pox is not known. Under the situation, it is adviseble to consult pediatician.

Hi, My 7 year old girl is so attached to us that she sleeps right in the middle of us and always puts us to sleep before she does. No matter what she doesn't want to sleep separately. And you know what. Also is this the right time to talk to her about sex and how much info should be given to her, considering some info could make kids curious and try to know more by experimenting and exploring that is way too unsafe. Please advise. Regards.

BHMS
Homeopath, Hyderabad
Try to avoid speaking or doing much about sex in front of her and also slowly make her to get acquainted to sleep separately as this generation is too inquisitive to learn things easily especially with things like these which we try to hide out from them. Don't worry but make her to learn to sleep separately as she is 7 now.

Firstly treat his loose motions as it is being 6 days now. Increase intake of water in form of ors, lemon juice, fruit juice, buttermilk. Give over ripped banana, pomegranate juice, curd and rice. These are easy to digest and will give energy also.
