Hello doctor, If RDW is 2.46% higher than the normal range for a 7 years kid, what can be the disease?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician, Alappuzha
Higher RDW values indicate greater variation in size. Normal reference range of RDW-CV in human red blood cells is 11.5-14.5%. If anemia is observed, RDW test results are often used together with mean corpuscular volume (MCV) results to determine the possible causes of the anemia.

I have vaccinated my son with HIB vaccine and hepatitis A vaccine yesterday. Today morning he had fever. Is that vaccine causes fever or he had any virus infection?

Hi lybrate-user, Vaccines usually cause fever for 24 to 48 hours after administration of Vaccine. If the fever is persisting beyond this period or associated with other symptoms like cold, cough, throat pain, loose stools, then we can think other reasons such as Viral infections. Hope I have answered your query. Regards,

Movement Disorders - Different Types That Can Affect Your Child!

Movement Disorders - Different Types That Can Affect Your Child!

Movement disorders can trigger from various types of brain injuries, metabolic disturbances, inflammation, trauma, side effects of medication, genetic disorders, infections etc. The brain structures that get affected are believed to include the thalamus, brainstem, basal ganglia, cortex etc. Since all these structures function together, any abnormalities in any of the structures can compromise movement. For instance, a kid suffering from primary dystonia can lead a near normal life, if the condition is detected and treated early in life. However, on the other hand, if the same condition goes undetected it can cripple the child for the rest of his life. 

Different types of moment disorder-

  1. Chorea: It results from a neurological injury. The movement of children suffering from this condition becomes irregular and dance-like. The child often becomes slow or more forceful in their movement. If the condition affects the legs, a kid can frequently stumble and face difficulty while walking. Sydenham chorea is a condition that is not very severe and is reversible with treatment. 
  2. Tremor: It is a condition that is characterized by trembling or shaky movements. This often results from an underlying and undetected condition that may be genetic in nature or a side effect of other medications. A kid suffering from this condition faces difficulty in fine-tuning movements. Tremor may run in family e.g. essential tremors
  3. Myoclonus: It a disorder that involves quick involuntary muscle jerks that a child fails to resist.The jerks can be frequent or occasional, there may or may not be a pattern involved to it. This condition has no long-term complication on a child’s health, but it is necessary to evaluate the type of myoclonus a child is suffering from and must be differentiated from myoclonic seizure. 
  4. Dystonia: It causes the muscle groups to contract abnormally, due to faulty signals of the brain. Instead of a coordinated contraction of muscles, they can contract in opposition causing the push and the pull muscles to work together. This can cause uncomfortable and painful twisting of limbs. 
  5. Tourette syndrome: It is involuntary in nature, where sudden sounds or movements that appear, vanishes over a prolonged time period. This condition is the advanced form of muscle tics. They can involve any part of the body and greatly varies in severity. Children can successfully suppress tics but over time they build a sense of wrongness while resisting it. Most tic disorders are reversible with the right treatment. 
  6. Ataxia: It results from a failure of motor coordination of the cerebellum, due to an injury or dysfunction. This condition can have various patterns involved to it. While few types of ataxia can come and go due to a condition such as metabolic disorder, epilepsy, genetic mutation etc, some begin abruptly due to brain bleed or stroke

Soaps for babies have to be mild. Don't use antiseptic/ lightening soaps. Use glycerin based soaps and apply moisturizer twice a day on damp skin. Any oil is good for light gentle massage before bathing the child. For scalp avoid coconut oil in first year.

My cousin is 10 years old. Her back got burnt when she was two years old. Since then, her mother is applying the necessary cream and other essentials on her back. But the main problem is this that she is getting hair loss after every short interval. Can you tell me how can we overcome that problem of hair loss?

HAIR FALL is a common problem nowadays. Also, hair fall gets increased in rainy season. If it's mild increase in hair fall, it will soon recover. But if problem persist, then you should start hair fall treatment. Regularly wash your hair with mild shampoo. 1.Vitamin for hair loss.(A, B and C) 2.Enrich diet with protein. 3.Scalp massage with essential oils. Take coconut oil and heat it up so that it is warm, but not too hot. Massage your scalp with this hot oil for a few minutes. 4.Avoid brushing wet hair. 5.Garlic juice, onion juice or ginger juice. 6.Keep yourself hydrated. 7.Rub green tea into your hair. 8.Put on a shower cap for an hour then shampoo your hair. It helps to stop hair loss and promote hair growth. 9.Avoid hairstyles that pull on the hairline. 10.Ditch hair tools that use high heat. 11.Be wary of chemical processing. 12.Drink water to hydrate your body. 13.U need proper constitutional med to get permanent relief. Ask for consultation so that I can help you better. Homoeopathy can help you in this case. It not only check hair fall but also boost up hair growth. Please book online consultation to start the treatment.
