My son age 7 years - front bottom teeth are strong still from back two new teeth started growing? I am confused? pl advice.

MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Ranchi
I would suggest you to get the front milk teeth extracted so that the permanent tooth gets better space to grow properly. The extraction of milk teeth is very easy and less traumatic as these are very superficial.

Are there any long-term effects associated with taking ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) medications? If so, what are they and what medications are implicated? What exactly is a spine block injection? Will it work long-term for low back pain due to disc problems? What causes Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and what is the best method of treatment? Can iodine help this condition?

Adhd there is no cure for attention deficit hyperactive disorderbut treatments can help relieve the symptoms and make the condition much less in day to day life adhd can be treated using medication or therapy but a combined of both is I often the best way to treat it a hdh. Behaviour therapy isva treatment option that can help reduce this behaviour it is often helpful to start behaviour therapy as soon as diagnoses is made.

My baby is 5 and half months old. Her eyes are reddish color. Her weight also decreasing day by day.
Give genticin eye drops, two drops in each eye for 2 to 3 days. If the baby is drinking milk properly and sleeping passing urine and motion regularly, you need not worry regarding weight gain. They will grow. May be slow but they won't loose weight.

It is not clear whether swelling appeared 2 months ago or 180 days (6 months) ago. In any case get checked.

General Physician,
EPILEPSY OR FITS (As laymen say )
***********************************************
Seizure is a sudden change in behavior that is the consequence of brain dysfunction.
Approximately 0.5–1% of population has epilepsy.
ome seizures are provoked i.e. that occur in the metabolic derangement, drug or alcohol withdrawal and in situations like acute paralysis or acute encephalitis. Such patients are not considered to have epilepsy because these seizures would not recur in the absence of the provocation.
Less than 50% of epilepsy cases will have an identifiable cause such as head trauma, brain tumor, paralysis, infection, brain malformation etc.
Having one seizure does not always mean that the patient would always get a seizure.
One episode of seizure may not require treatment.
Hospitalization is required in the first seizure only if it is associated with prolonged post seizure altered level of consciousness.
Patients with unprovoked seizure may not be allowed to drive for some time.
In children, seizure can occur with high grade fever.
In adults, the first episode of seizure may be due to worms in the brain. In such a situation, it may be necessary to do an MRI test.
A patient with seizure can get married, live a normal life and produce children.
It is a misnomer that during a fit you need to make the person smell a shoe.
During epilepsy, never put the fingers inside the mouth of the patient as you could be bitten. Use a spoon instead to prevent tongue bite.
A patient with epilepsy fall will have stiffness in the body; on the contrary, patient with cardiac loss of consciousness will fall loose.
A seizure that lasts for more than 5–10 minutes requires specialized attention.

Congratulations on the new arrival! I am sure you already know that breast milk is the best medicine! do not worry, make sure your baby gets enough of it. Also, do not forget well-baby visits to your doctor and the immunisation as well.

If it is a hernia then surgery is the only treatment. You should get him operated soon before he develops any complications.

You need to give anti emetic after finding the cause and pantosec should not be routinely given and if you bottle feed stop bottle and feed from a cup.

If the child is feeding that's ok. You will not loose weight due to that. If you have other inconveniences, you may opt to gradually stop it by changing to normal food alone. You can also apply resin extract of Aloe, available with raw plant drug dealers, on the nipple after making a paste with water. It is bitter in taste.

13 months old baby don't force a baby to eat but yes give something to babies almost at interval of 2 hours. Try each and every food item to baby which is easily digestible can in semisolid forms for easy and smooth eating. Milk is not an issue give milk 3 to 4 times a day. Give all pulses, daliya / oats, chapati, rice, fruits, green boiled veges likes beans, carrot etc.

Your son is too young. He does not require any treatment. Some children get their hair later after they grow a little. You can shave his head more frequently every 6 months.

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.

My son, 22 Month old do not eat anything from birth. he never drink milk from the bottle and never eat any stuff like humans since his birth. he is under weight and we are feeding him milk through 20ml syringe and feed him liquid Dalia force fully by directly injecting it in his mouth. we have consulted several pediatrics the recent one is HOD Max hospital delhi but nothing worked out. As per doctors, baby is fine it just require discipline to improve his food habits. My question is, how can food habits be improved when a baby is not interested in taking any eatable stuff inside his mouth and if we forcefully give into his mouth, he never chew or swallow it. Can someone help us....we are facing a really bad luck with my baby..I will really appreciate your help. Thanks in advance.

you have rightly said that your baby does not eat like humans because you don't treat your baby as human.STOP FORCED FEEDING AND STOP MILK FEED altogether.love your kid but do not feed.you have done the way you wanted,and baby is under weight,now follow the basic principles that are being elaborated.only six meals a day,one meal to be served for twenty minutes only otherwise remove the plate,no grazing in between the meals,no junk food,one large meal followed by small meal and repeat alter natively,if baby does not eat then next meal after three hours.let baby be hungry and demand food.necessity is mother of invention.I HAVE NOT SEEN ANY BODY DYING OF HUNGER WHEN FOOD IS AVAILABLE.
