Bcg is given anywhere between first day of birth and one month. So no problem for your baby given after twenty days. Bcg is given as a prophylaxis to prevent tuberculosis (tb) in future. It is given on the left upper arm. After a period of one to three months a nodule forms at the site of injection, sometimes an abscess forms and it heals and ultimately a scar remains permanently. It is given intradermally.

Hello maam, I would suggest you to make your child eat food every hour or in 30 mins if she eats very small meals. It is very important to fulfill her nutritious needs for better growth. Make her eat at least 1300- 1500 kcal per day as per her growth requirement by completing the required amount of carbs (105-110 gms), proteins (12-14 gms), good fat (30-35 gms), calcium, vitamins A, B,B6, B12,C, D,E, K and minerals, iron, riboflavin etc so that it also helps her gain weight. Also make her do maximum of physical activity the whole day. If you want I can help you initially with a week long diet chart. Please help me with some food list she likes.

I am having calcified granuloma i'm my Brain What does it mean? Is it dangerous for my body as I am a 17 years old boy!

Sexologist, Sri Ganganagar
Because it usually takes some time for calcium to be deposited in a granuloma, it is generally assumed that a calcified granuloma is an old granuloma, or an old area of inflammation. For example, a calcified granuloma in the lung may be due to tuberculosis contracted years earlier that is now inactive and dormant. Since a granuloma is a space occupying lesion in the brain, there are chances that it may press upon the adjoining tissues to produce symptoms. Therefore, most of the patients presenting with this problem are given an anti-epileptic medication as a prophylaxis. Some patients may require pain medications for headaches or other symptoms they are facing. The treatment is essentially controlling the symptoms, to start with. Next step is assessing whether the granuloma is active or not. If active, cause of granuloma formation is investigated and this underlying cause is treated. It is possible that the infection is still there and actively causing inflammation in the brain tissue. This may be a bacteria, virus or even a parasite. Accordingly, medicines are given to combat the infection. Anti- inflammatory medicines are given to reduce inflammation and to prevent the granuloma from increasing in size. Sometimes, if the location of the granuloma permits, surgical excision of the lesion may be done Inactive or dormant granulomas tend to shrink in size on their own. Except for symptomatic treatment, no medical intervention is required for them.

I am 33 years. I have given birth to a girl baby on december 30th with normal delivery. Still i am not able to feed my daughter with breast milk. I have tried all the steps to increase molk supply but not able to produce milk. Could anyone help me with this?

Young Mothers always think that their milk is not sufficient. Don't be disheartened. The more you feed , the better will be the supply of breast milk. Drink a lot of water, eat nourishing food and continue taking iron and calcium supplements. If the baby is passing urine frequently and stool normally and gaing weight nicely, you can be sure that you are producing enough milk.

Reasons Behind Constipation In Children!

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Jaipur
Reasons Behind Constipation In Children!

Constipation is a very common problem among toddlers and children. It takes place when the child's stool is dry, hard and unusually large, and the frequency of bowel movement is low and inconsistent. Although it is not a serious cause for concern, constipation in children should be recognised and treated early so that it does not develop into a chronic long-term ailment.

Constipation in children is seldom directly caused by any disease or medical disorder, which is known as idiopathic constipation and may be cause by a number of factors:

1. Diet: This is the primary cause of constipation in children. If the child's diet has low water and fibre content and heavily features sugar and processed foods, stool becomes hard and bowel movement gets restricted.

2. Deliberate Withholding: Often children may consciously avoid visiting the toilet, which may make them feel constipated. This may be due to embarrassment, especially in public spaces or they might be too engaged in playing to not go to the toilet, altogether. Some children do it out of fear when a previous toilet experience has been particularly painful.

3. Lack of Physical Activity: The digestive system is boosted through regular exercise. Lack of physical activity, thus, inhibits regular bowel movement.

4. Illness and Medication: Infections and illnesses, especially ones pertaining to the stomach cause the child to become constipated. Many medicines and supplements also affect the digestive system and can lead to constipation.

What are the ways to manage constipation in children?

Constipation in children is treated differently than in adults as their diets and patterns of bowel movement are dissimilar.

The primary treatments for constipation in children are:

1. Stool Softeners and Laxatives

The administration of bowel movement enhancing medication is the simplest way of treating constipation in children. There are various kinds of stool softeners and laxatives that are safe for children and must always be used under the supervision of a paediatrician.

2. Dietary Adjustment

Making changes to the child's diet by including high fibre foods (such as fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grain breads, cereals, etc.) can help cure constipation. Compelling the child to intake ample fluids in the form of water or milk is also necessary. Sugary drinks must be avoided. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Pediatrician.

Walamycin should not be used without prescription. Moreover it is not used in GI infections, as it has no role.
