General Physician,
First off all, check if urine goes out in good steam or his hole is narrow with the skin not pulling down. Then check his urine re and culture and send me the reports.

This is normal in first year of life to have viral infections often as immunity is still building. Normal medicines are ok. No need to give antibiotics every time.

Hello lybrate-user! as per your history it seems that baby has received bcg vaccination on left arm on deltoid region. It is normal to develop pustule after 4to 6 week which will burst and heal leaving scar mark behind which will remain for life time. If any swelling develops in left axilla (lymph node) or in neck gland swellling then inform your pediatrician.

You can instead give freshly made curd before it turns sour. (within 2 hours of setting for curdling. Milk alone is not he best food, you ca give all home made healthy food.

Baby girl aged 2 years had slight temperature for the last two days, she was administered acetominofin and she is under control, but yesterday we observed a slight swelling on the lower part behind her ear. What might be the reason for this. This is not paining and she is quite normal otherwise.

Could be a simple lymph node. Very common in this age group. Its normal. If its not painful then its not a cause of concern. Its normal physiology of childhood. Dont waste your time and money on it. Let it be.

My kid is 2 years old now and he is not able to speak, what is correct age to speak.

MASLP
Speech Therapist, Hyderabad
Around 1 year age children generally speak few simple words. Communication delays must be addressed at early ages for better results. Speech pathologist can guide you reg. Intensive speech language stimulation. Any neuro motor problems must be ruled out. Seek professional help if there is absolutely no speech development yet.

Your son is having fever for last 7 days. You must consult pediatrician not taking it lightly. Ups and down fever may be due to effect of paracetamol.

Use of stimulant decreases the symptoms to a much good effect and if we don't give stimulant medication There will be more of conduct disorder and progress in disease and for side effects we have to monitor the person and advice them accordingly And spine block injection is effective long term

There are many sunscreen lotions in the market with different spf values. Guidelines to choose a good sunscreen: spf:(sun protection factor).-the higher the spf the better it is for sun protection. -try and get a waterproof sunscreen as she will be sweating while playing. -remember that due to sweating, one has to reapply the sunscreen every 45 minutes.

This is common problem with children of this age group, need not worry as the children go to school they may catch up cold or cough from other children as it is very communicable. As children grow old they develop immunity. Just keep away from dust and cold air and water. Try to give proper steam inhalation once they catch up cold.

Babies should not loose weight as such. Loss of 2 kg is significant. Some times there may be machine error also. Keep a watch, check the weight again. You are already giving all the nutrients. Add some butter to the meals. This will help in weight gain.
