My baby is now 6 month old and he is getting his vaccine on timely but I have query about injectable polio vaccine. He already got 2 dose of IPV on timely. Now he was having 3rd dose on 6 month but due to non availability in private clinic we r not able to provide him 3rd dose. So kindly please suggest what to do? He is taking regularly on time oral polio drops even.

Hello. Injectable polio is not available since many months. Nothing to worry. Yiu can give oral polio drops instead of IPV according to schedule. In addition to this, give polio drops given by government every 6 months on pulse polio days. Thank you!

Hi lybrate-user! Recently many people are coming up with doubts about painless vaccination. I would like to tell you that apart from oral polio drops and rotaviral vaccine, every vaccine is an injection which involves prick with needle. Of course it is going to give some pain to your child for that moment. Nowadays combination vaccines come with 4 to 5 components so that your child will be pricked only once or twice and not 4 to 5 times. Hope this helped you.

My 20 months baby is due for vaccination. Can anyone please tell me if pentaxim (painless) is still available with any Paediatric doctor in Pune?

Hello lybrate-user. First of all I want to make it clear to you that there is no absolutely painless vaccine. Every vaccine, whether large or small needle is used, has to be given by prick only. And this will surely cause some pain for your baby. Inj. Pentaxim consists of DPT, IPV and Hib. 5 components. It has not been available for quite some time now. Hence most of the doctors give oral polio drops and quadravax injection with DPT and Hib. Anyways you can enquire with nearby doctors once. Hope this helped you!

Hi lybrate-user, if your baby is vomiting daily, she could be having gastric reflux problem. You need to discuss in detail with a paediatrician regarding her symptoms and get it treated. Recurrent vomiting can prevent weight gain. Well about the diet. You can give her mashed dal rice with some ghee added, cooked apple, ragi porridge etc now.

My baby has chest congestion. The doc advised to give him. Steam thru vaporizer. I have bought sodium chloride injection along with Levolin, but do not know how to use it. Do I need to add water to vaporizer in order to make sufficient steam? Confused.

As advised by doctor, you can give steam through vapourizer carefully. But plain steam. And do not let your baby go very close to the vapouriser. Sodium chloride with levolin is for nebulization, not vapourizer. It is not advisable to give nebulization for kids without supervision of a doctor. If nebulization has been advised, take your child to nearby hospital or clinic and give it. Hope this helped you!

My 2 years old baby boy suffering from ulcers in his throat & mouth and he is not able to take food and even water from yesterday. Kindly suggest a good easy giving medicine to get rid off these ulcers. Also want to inform you that from 2 days he is also suffering from viral & sunstroke and his medicines going on. Kindly help.

Pediatrician, Chennai
Well, looks like your child is suffering from a viral infection. You can continue the medicines for fever and cold as suggested by your nearby pediatrician. For ulcers you can apply small amount of Zytee gel over the ulcers three to four times a day for 3 days. Its for pain relief. Also give syp. Becostar 5 ml once daily for 2 weeks. It contains B- complex vitamins that can help in healing.

Sir, way back in the year 2011 I am not sure about whether I was either bitten or got a scratch by a dog but I am pretty sure that there was no flow of any blood. At that time I ignored as there was no blood and even I couldnt find any scratch. Now I am bit reluctant about it. Can I take vaccine now as there is not even a single symptom of rabbies after almost 6 years of the incident.

Hello! Rabies infection is caused by rabies virus, transmitted by bite of a rabid dog. The incubation period of this infection is usually 1 to 3 months. WHO (world health organization) says it can range from 1 week to 1 year. Since 6 years have passed since the incident, you don't have to worry about possibility of infection and vaccination now. Moreover from what you said, it looks like you had a Class 1 bite. Meaning, mildest form of dog bite. Hope this has helped you:-)
