Thanks3 year old child should normally weigh around 12 kgs. 80% and above is considered as normal. Give for worms and nutritious diet. Putting on more weight is not advisable nowadays. For fever and seizures you must give paracetamol and clobazam as soon as he gets fever.

WHAT IS THE PROPER TREATMENT FOR TUBERCULOSIS IN STOMACH ? WHETHER IT IS FULLY CURABLE ? HOW MUCH TIME IT TAKES TO CURE ? IS THERE IN MEDICINE IN AYURVEDA / HOMEOPATH FOR THE SAME ?

MD
Pediatrician, Secunderabad
It is 100% curable. With allopathic medicines (in most caes) time is 9 month in a new uncomplicated case there would be medicines in ayurveda and homeo also. But i personally dont advice to go for those medicine. Its a serious illness. Get treatment for it seriouslyy otherwise you will face serious problms. Try ayurveda and homeo for common cold or seasonal itching or constipation but for serious illness absolute no.

Symptoms and Myths About Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and How to Spot Them in Children

Symptoms and Myths About Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and How to Spot Them in Children

Children generally tend to be fairly over active and have lesser attention spans. However, when this tends to get into their performance at school and in general with getting along with other children it may be a sign of ADD or attention deficit disorder. Let's look at some of the common symptoms of this disorder.

Symptoms of ADD:

  1. Problems in staying focused: One of the very basic symptom is that children will often be very inattentive even during classes and will be easily distracted by small things.
  2. Problems in trying to remember things or difficulty in following instructions: Children with attention deficit disorder tend to have issues with remembering things and if given tasks, being unable to complete as they can't remember instructions properly.
  3. Issues with organizing, planning and trying to finish tasks: Due to the lack of attention, kids have problems retaining information and cannot plan or finish tasks given to them on a daily basis.
  4. Easily bored or loses interest: Even if a child with ADD starts with something they like, interest may wane off quickly. Thus it is difficult to make them stick to a specific work schedule which may require regular practice.
  5. Lack of attention to details and making careless mistakes: This is another trait of children with attention deficit disorder. They may be able to complete a task, but it will be fraught with mistakes as they wouldn't have much attention to detail.
  6. Has a tendency to not listen when someone is speaking to them: This is also very common and is usually tied to being easily distracted and thus will drift off or not listen to when someone is speaking to them.

Some Myths about ADD:

  • All kids with ADD are hyperactive
  • They will eventually grow out of it
  • Medication is the only option to treat ADD
  • ADD is not really a disorder and kids need to be trained better

Most of these are half truths and the extent of the problems varies from child to child. Only proper counseling will be able to diagnose the extent of the problem and what needs to be done.

How to spot ADD in Children:

ADD can be spotted in children aged below 7 years via certain symptoms. Apart from the ones mentioned above, children generally tend be abrasive towards others and can make embarrassing comments quite often. They also change tasks very quickly without completing any of them. Any distraction would force them to change their track. It is best to go to a child specialist to get your child checked out for possible symptoms.

Avoid giving milk. Its high time you stop milk. This age group solid food is more helpful than just liquid milk.

My six years old son has been passing stool in clothes in day as well as in night. We have consulted more than doctors but no result. Please tell us the possible cause of this?

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Tumkur
It is called encopresis and usually due to psychological problem. Find out any stress inducing events in the family or school. It will resolve slowly. Get an mri spine to rule out a neurological problem which sometimes may cause that.

Suggest health food for child having epilepsy at the age of 8 years. Medicine has not been useful.

Pediatrician, Pune
Any child diagnosed with epilepsy needs proper medication. Precautions, like no late nights regular nutritious diet and exercise will help. You must not miss the medication. For a ketogenic diet can be started only after a metabolic work up of the child is done.

My 5 years old daughter is having burning sensation while passing urine? Does she have a urine infection? Also she is having frequent urination with only drops of urine coming out?

MRCPCH
Pediatrician,
The only way knowing whether it is a urine infection is by testing urine for nitrites, leucocytes, blood, pus cells and urine culture. In the meanwhile, make sure she is drinking plenty of fluids.

As per your history and complaints, looks like you are having mild gastritis, is your vomiting controlled now? do drink plenty of water and take some antacid before food 2-3 times daily, also have some curd or butter milk. Even if the condition persists, consult a paediatrician and get urself evaluated.

His expected wt at this age should be about 7 kg. If baby is active probably he is not getting sufficient feed. Increase either quantity or a number of feed that may be helpful else consult your pediatrician.

Sip Oolong Tea

Research suggests that people with mild eczema who drink oolong tea three times a day may show improvement in itching and other symptoms. Compounds in the tea called polyphenols appear to be responsible.

For running nose put saline nasal drops frequently into each nostril. Cough for such a long duration might need evaluation.
