I have 5 years old daughter. Every night she do bed wet 2-3 times. I tried some medicine but not any response Please guide me what I do?

Pediatrician,
Hi. Most important thing to note is whether this is a problem which has been continuing since birth or whether it had stopped in between and started again. Management changes according to that. Moreover, most of the times there is not much to worry about till about 6 years of age as most of the times this problem reduces by itself.

Tips to Control Allergy Driven Wheezing this Season

Internal Medicine Specialist, Kolkata
Tips to Control Allergy Driven Wheezing this Season

Seasonal changes can be very exciting for most people. Each season brings with it a new set of colours and nature takes a new turn. However, for people with seasonal allergies, a seasonal change also comes with a set of allergies. From skin rashes to wheezing to breathing difficulties, the list of symptoms can be quite long. Asthma is the most common problem, and the attacks can be quite bothersome with wheezing attacks and breathing troubles.

With advancements in the field of medicine, there is a lot of relief for asthma patients. A little understanding on how asthma attacks happen will help in understanding how to control it. Asthma is an allergic reaction caused by narrowing of the airway with thick mucus, which makes breathing difficult. During an attack, the person can have a dry cough, face shortness of breath and wheezing.

Asthma is often triggered or worsened by some factors, and being aware of these can help prevent or manage an attack:

  1. Common allergens like pollen, mites, ticks, furs of animals, bird feathers, specific foods (peanuts, milk products, eggs, etc.) and mold spores appear during change of season.
  2. Environmental chemicals like cigarette smoke, car fumes, dust, etc., can also trigger an attack.
  3. Attacks of cold or flu can lead to an asthma attack.
  4. Workout during cold weather can be problematic, but exercise can also help control asthma attacks. Lung function improves sufficiently, but an exercise regime should be drawn up for the patient based on his condition.
  5. Stressful emotions like anger and anxiety can also lead to an attack or make it worse.
  6. Some medications like aspirin, beta blockers, glaucoma drops can aggravate attacks of asthma.

Once you know the triggers, here are some common measures that can help prevent and relieve the wheezing.

  1. The preventers reduce the inflammation in the airway tube and the swelling. While they do not provide immediate relief during an attack, using these in the long term helps avoid attacks. These are low-dose inhaled corticosteroids such as beclomethasone, fluticasone, and budesonide. Doctors would advise their usage even when there are no symptoms, as asthma attacks can be triggered when they are not taking these medications for a while. Newer drugs include leukotriene antagonists like montelukast and zafirlukast. Relievers are used for symptom relief and include Salbutamol (short acting) and Salmeterol/Formoterol (long acting). Peak flow meter may be useful in acute attacks, wherein the peak flow rates can be reduced.

A good strategy is to use preventers regularly and rely on relievers during an attack. The first one helps build resistance and so reduces the incidence of attacks. Reach out to a doctor if a severe attack ensues (lasts more than 3 hours).

There is no any best ingredient to add in milk.Milk itself is best. If your baby is more than 6 months and is on weaning stage, you may add in milk after grinding fine and if he is older enough to chew, leave him free to choose items of his choice that shall make him familiar.

What Causes Early Childhood Trauma? + How to Identify this Condition?

What Causes Early Childhood Trauma? + How to Identify this Condition?

The problem of early childhood trauma refers to disturbing experiences that take place in children during 0-6 years of age. The traumas that young children experience can be the effects of natural disaster, war or accidents or that of intentional violence like sexual abuse, domestic violence or physical abuse.

What Does this Condition Impact Childhood?

Traumatic events have a significant impact on your child's life and can break his sense of safety. The problem has been linked with a decrease in the size of the brain cortex. This is the part of the brain that controls several complex functions like thinking, consciousness, memory, attention, awareness, and language. The changes that occur as a result can affect your child's IQ as well as his or her ability to control emotions. As a consequence, he or she may harbor feelings of danger and become more afraid or it may manifest in other personality issues which are not very obvious.

How do you identify this condition?

Generally, children who suffer from traumas face problems in regulating their emotions and behaviors.

They may display signs like:

- Fear of new situations
- Being clingy to their parent(s) or somebody close
- Become easily frightened
- Display aggressive and/or impulsive behavior
- Are difficult to comfort
- Display deterioration in behavior and functioning
- Easily forget newly attained developmental skills
- Difficulty in sleeping

Depending on the age during which your child may go through a traumatic event, he or she can exhibit signs relevant to his or her age.

For instance:

Children aged 0-2 years may also display reactions like poor verbal skills, memory problems, excessive temper, experience nightmares, etc.

On the other hand, children aged 3-6 years can face difficulties in learning as well as develop poor skill and learning disabilities, face problems in social interaction, may be unable to trust people and so on.

If this condition remains unattended or unresolved for longer, it may create personality issues and can deeply impact the individual's relationships, or equations in the society, as they grow up and even after they become adults. In fact, many behavioral problems can be traced back to childhood trauma.

Diet you are giving may be heavy and good as per your perception but may not be sufficient for bay. Give him well cooked oily diet frequently including milk. Continue breast milk till 2 years of age.

It seems your kid is having allergic cough so it's better to avoid any thing with artificial colours, flavours. All those candies have colours and avoid jelly/jelly filled chocolates. For any fracture in kid treatment is positioning of bone in proper place so new new bone is formed in continuity.

My girl child is 7 years old. Her weight is 45 kg. He suffers illness two times every year like fever, cough, nose block etc. But she is very much active. She sweat very much. Her belly is too much fat.

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Tumkur
It's quite normal to have 2 to 3 times illness in a year. You must try to reduce her weight as obesity is associated with various health problems like diabetes, hypertension etc. Some children have a tendency to sweat more. In your child it may improve with reduction in the weight.

As per your description, your baby has some gaseous distention problem. Because of that your baby did not do stool properly and throw out the milk. Start giving grip water. Apply some oil on stomach and provide some heat through hot water bottle. Do not stop feeding your baby. You have to maintain your diet also, avoid eating heavy food. She will be alright.

Hi lybrate-user! Good that you have come forward to find a solution for your son at this initial stage, bcoz this problem has to be sorted out as soon as possible. First you need to encourage him to talk with neighbours from small age to Adults, keep encouraging. Try to make him participate in social activities. Slowly you can find out boys of his kind to interact, allow him to interact. Just closely watch his behavior, try to find if he has any different kind of behavior that affects him from having a healthy relationship. First encourage him to make friends with guys who are also comfortable and adjusting with his relationship. If any problem try to correct him by talking to him in a friendly way. Just teach him how he needs to have friends. If you still find there is difficulty in him getting along with others, you can seek a Professional Psychologist help to overcome this problem at your locality. If you are interested you can contact me either through text chat or online consultation yes you are most welcome. The more you allow him to interact with guys of good character, he will definitely find good friends, but you can monitor him for some days just to help or train him to find friends. No worries. Console him. Bring confidence in him. Do not allow him to feel for unnecessary things (though it is necessary he need not feel since this can be solved) With regards,
