My 21 month old daughter is suffering with mild fever, coughing, sneezing from yesterday. Fever is around 100-101 degree. Giving her grenil syrup, ambrodil. Kindly advice me. Should I give her antibiotic.

Cough, sneezing and fever are all symptoms of flu. If she has breathing problem made out by poor activity, chest moving up and down, she has to be seen by a doctor. Otherwise give her paracetamol syrup 5 ml and lots of fluids.

Acute Upper Respiratory Infection: Causes and Symptoms

MBBS, Diploma in Tuberculosis and Chest Diseases (DTCD)

Acute Upper Respiratory Infection: Causes and Symptoms

Upper respiratory infection (URI) is a condition, which involves illness, mainly caused by critical infection in the upper respiratory tract. This region includes the pharynx, larynx, nose and sinus. This infection causes diseases, such as tonsillitis (tonsils get inflamed), pharyngitis (causes sore throat) sinusitis (nasal passage becomes inflamed), laryngitis (voice box in your throat gets inflamed) and common cold.

Causes of upper respiratory infection (URI):

  1. Both virus and bacteria cause upper respiratory infection (URI). The most common form of virus causing this infection is known as 'rhinovirus.'
  2. The immune system of young adults and children are often very vulnerable. Hence, they are more likely to develop upper respiratory tract infection.
  3. URI is also contagious and airborne in nature. So if a person comes in contact with an infected person suffering from URI, he/she is likely to develop this infection.
  4. Not washing hands before meals can also cause upper respiratory infection because the virus can be transferred easily to the mouth and can travel into your system.
  5. If you have any lung problem or heart disease, you are more likely to be susceptible to upper respiratory infection.
  6. Those who already have inflamed tonsils can trigger tonsillitis by drinking any cold or spicy beverage like ice-creams or cold milkshakes.
  7. Exposure to some flu or cold can cause pharyngitis. It can also be caused by second hand smoking.
  8. Birth defects or structural defects in the nasal cavity or nasal polyps can cause sinusitis. Sometimes the inside part of the nose may get swollen due to common cold and block your ducts. This is a common cause for sinusitis.

Symptoms of acute upper respiratory infection:

  1. Congestion in the lungs or nasal area.
  2. Whooping cough
  3. Running nose due to common cold.
  4. Feelings of fatigue and lethargy throughout the day.
  5. Your body will start aching without engaging in any physical exercise.
  6. You can also lose consciousness in severe respiratory tract infections.
  7. Difficulty in breathing.
  8. Oxygen levels in blood drop down drastically.

Sometimes in worse cases, acute upper respiratory tract infection (URI) can also cause respiratory failure, respiratory arrest and congestive heart failure. Therefore, it is necessary to book an appointment with a doctor as soon as you start experiencing the above symptoms. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a pulmonologist.

My son is not having solid food he is 1 yr. Should I give his any multivitamin medicine.

My son is not having solid food he is 1 yr. Should I give his any multivitamin medicine.
A 1 year child has to be gradually weaned to semi solids and solid foods. The process needs to start from 6 months onwards. If your child has just been introduced to semisolid, be patient and keep giving him 3 semisolid meals. You can give him multivitamin medicine till he is not accepting his feeds properly.

If the child is in normal range of weight and playful, may be his requirements are met with what he/she is eating. For constipation, the treatment is easy by a pediatrician

My daughter is 2yrs 3mths old. How to stop her breastfeeding.

MBBS, Diploma in Child Health (DCH), DNB (Pediatrics)
Pediatrician,
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.

My cousion is suffering from loose motion for one week and he is only 8months old. Some says loose motion is due to coming of teeth can I get better explanation.

MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Ranchi
This is a myth that teething causes loose motion. Loose motion in this age is usually due to viral infection or introduction of new food items. Giving plenty of fluid is the main aim of management to prevent dehydration. Antibiotics are usually not needed as it is mostly due to viral infection. If stool is mixed with blood or mucus it is suggestive of bacterial infection and antibiotic will be needed in that condition. Giving zinc and probiotic helps in early recovery. Watch for general activity and urinary frequency and if there is any abnormality consult your physician.

There is no need of admission in hospital only because the fever is high see for sign of dehydration, give plenty of liquids to drink. Only risk of febrile convusion is there at 8 months of age. Ask your doctor about the advice to reduce the risk. Always try to find out the cause of fever & worry about the cause not the fever. Treat the cause fever will automatically go if the cause is treated. Ask your doctor about the probable cause.

Hello, ●New born baby is unable to distinguish between night & daytime. Hence, after few week, you have to educate the baby the difference between  day & night in order to establish sound sleep in the night. ●When its day, the baby should be brought in sun light to recognise the day time and similarly in night the baby should be kept in a dim. Light to recognise eving or night time. Her day should be brighter and the night be darker. ●This has to be ensured  that child is adequetly ,fed before going to bed & continued feeding 2 hrly. ●Some time the baby suffers from abdominal pain, earache,headache due to change in climate, cause her weep. ●  usually, we fail to assess the room- temprature being suitable for the baby to make her sleep, comfortably.Ac should be tuned & fan should be adjusted as per the need be. ● in the night while feeding the baby of your own  baby asleeps without taking sufficient quty of milk, makes her weep, again and again during sleep, please keep checking the fact & adjusted as the condition warants. Homoeopathically,  your baby might be nurtured, successfully. Your feedback is solicited to followup your baby. The care.
