See a doctor please. You may need a blood test and X ray of the chest. Cough along with fever often will need antibiotics.

Generally there is no fever after anti rabies injection, in case of fever use plain paracetamol. Once started continue anti rabies vaccine 0-3-7 days (if no signs of rabies in animal then convert it to prophylactic vaccination by giving at 30 days) 14-28 days. 90 days booster.

By constantly putting baby and putting the nipple in her mouth he will learn to. You also need to check if the nipple is retracted.

My Grand Son who is 5 years now suffering from Autism for the last 1 year six months. He was doing good in the initial years but developed this problem. Checked medically and no problem as per reports. But his remembrance has come down apart from change in his behaviour. Pl suggest what is to be done?

Change in behaviour in child age group is not abnormal. It changes year by year in this age group. For only this reason of change in behaviour, child may not be considered as suffering from Autism. It has many associated features also. It may just a matter of chance that he might be having interest in some other field instead of of learning according to your choice. I suggest to take another opinion about autism.

Involuntary Oral Habits That Are Eating Away Your Smile.

BDS, FICOI, MDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Involuntary Oral Habits That Are Eating Away Your Smile.

Clenching or night grinding.

If you have ever experienced a strong emotion of either anger or resolve you may realise our body tenses up and our teeth clench. If this is not a frequent occurrence the damage maybe minimal but as sports people or someone with a bad temper you may actually end up wearing down your teeth considerably. Now a large part of this habit is semi voluntary you can remind yourself to control it but a few people suffer from an entirely involuntary condition called night grinding or bruxism.

Unfortunately here you have no awareness of doing the grinding except maybe waking up with a sore jaw or a headache but the person sleeping beside you can even hear you gnashing your teeth. Needless to say the damage this is silent destroyer is causing is significant and rapid. The best solution if diagnosed with this habit is to start wearing a night guard which is a thin plastic appliance that fits snugly on your teeth similar to a sports guard so that it protects your teeth and wears down before your teeth do. Also the jaw separation it creates puts your muscles at ease and they don't get activated or clench anymore.

Mouth breathing.

Many people are unaware of this habit entirely. A very common condition mouth breathing occurs more so when you're sleeping and tend to breathe more through your mouth than your nose.

This condition can be a result of the way your nasal passages and throat are shaped. It commonly occurs in people with a deviated nasal septum as well. The main sign to know if you're mouth breathing or not is if you wake up with an extremely dry mouth, at times bad breathe and tend to have red irritated gums that bleed often on brushing.

Mouth breathing also predisposes you to snoring so if you haven't started yet if you're a mouth breather chances are you will start snoring as well.

It usually can be corrected surgically and if not severe snoring particularly can be corrected by oral appliances or oxygen machines which supplement the air reaching your lungs.

Tongue thrusting.

This habit develops at childhood or birth and is also attributed to the tongue shape and the structure of the palate and throat. A person having this habit tends to push the teeth out while swallowing as a result they present with spaced out teeth and a large tongue.

To prevent the need for braces catching this habit early on and wearing an appliance to control it would be best. If spaces have already increased then best form of closing the gaps would be either with braces or by cosmetic fillings.

Cheek biting.

A surprisingly unnoticeable habit people tend to chew their inner cheek or parts of their lip when under stress or deep thought. While this habit can seem harmless it can create a long term wound in the mouth which can either balloon up with fluids or be subject to infection. Chronic injuries or wounds should never be left unnoticed and habits like these should be discontinued to avoid discomfort and the eventual need for treatment.

Exposure to alternating extremes of temperature.

Another very ignorant but seemingly harmless habit is to eat a hot meal and down it with a glass of ice cold water or have a hot drink and second it with ice cream. While the effects of this habit may only show up in the long term what it does is create an impact on the enamel and slowly cause the teeth to become sensitive.

While our teeth are extremely hardy and don't breakdown until exposed to hundreds of millions of such daily stimuli, the best solution is to keep an intermittent time gap between the extremes of temperature in order not to shock the nerves that rest within your teeth to become hypersensitive.

My nephew is 11 months old. When he was born both kidneys are differing in size and doctors mentioned it is not a problem. But from 2 weeks he is suffering from fever irregularly. So we got blood and urine and found there is urine infection. We got the ultrasound of kidney again and there is still the difference. Is that causing this urine infection? Attached the new scan reports.

My baby is 11mths old. He drinks milk from nipple bottle. When he had motion problems our doctor suggested we stop using the bottle and instead try cup to feed him. We tried this method but he does not drink milk. And later when we introduce nipple bottle he drinks it quickly. How do we stop feeding through nipple bottle? Please advice.

As you have already started with bottle milk and the child is used to bottle feed, its difficult to feed the child normally with spoon. Try to avoid bottle feeding as much as possible. Even if you continue bottle feeding just take care that you maintain proper hygiene by boiling both bottle and nipples atleast once daily. Do not leave the child when child is feeding through bottle.

Please do not force your baby to take the bottle if he is taking breastmilk without any problems. You might want to include milk in his food preparations so you may give him milk, but if you are continuing breastfeeding, that's all he requires as far as milk is concerned. Some kids become averse to the smell of plastic, so do not worry too much for this.

If your baby is breastfed it is fine and if you bottle feed, stop bottle and give exclusively breast milk.

Respected Sir my child has a 3 year old and his skin of penis is not properly up and down. What can I do?

MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Ranchi
This is called physiological phimosis and is normal if there is no ballooning of prepuce during micturition. As the baby grows this gets normal. If there is ballooning of prepuce, difficulty in micturition or repeated urinary infection consult your pediatrician as management will be needed in such cases. Regards.

Hi, Agalactia is a condition in which milk is not secreted in the mother’s breasts after her child has been delivered. Low milk production can occur due to nutritional deficiencies in mother or due to infrequent feeding. Yes, the more you feed your baby, the more breast milk you will produce. Some reasons for low milk production include not getting a good latch in the beginning baby continuously falling asleep due to under stimulation or the medication the mother may be on jaundice premature babies that lack muscle tone low thyroid lack of nutrition or hydration Healthy diet with lots of fruits, vegetables, omega 3 fatty acids and ample water can help in increasing breast milk. Medication: Give her homoeopathic medicine - Ricinus communis 30/ 4 times a day daily for few days till the time milk secretion takes place.

She is not having milk in one of her breast. What will be the best supplement to increase milk for baby feeding.

If milk is not in one breast only the duct may be blocked and it can be cleared by a gynec or surgeon.
