I am looking for a good dentist.  My son who is 3.5 years old,  has carries in front teeth. Is that curable?
Certainly curable. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning and artificial enamel filling or root canal treatment. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and a thorough dental check-up. Limit sugary food or milk after dinner to avoid tooth decay. Brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush. Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean the tongue with a tongue cleaner.

High fever is usually due to viral infection which takes some time for recovery. Use fevago drops (20drops) only at the time of fever which can be repeated once in 4 to 6 hours.

During growth period, all children used get calium /vit. D3 deficiency, that causes excessive sweating of the body, especially over the head. Give calcium supplement and vit. D3. Allow the child to play under sun light also.

My son says that his right side nipple is paining while sleeping. What may be the reason? He has no fever, no swelling any where in body. Nothing. Is there any serious issue?

Hi, thanks for contacting me on lybrate. At his age, nipple pain is generally a mild problem that does not need specific treatment. If it persists, a pediatric evaluation for any trauma, inflammation etc, may be done. However, in most cases, this will disappear after some time. Warm fomentation and reassurance will generally help in a majority of cases. Warm regards.

AGE APPROPRIATE CHORES FOR CHILDREN AROUND THE HOUSE
Teaching children how to get their personal needs met and to help around the house is an important and integral part of growing up. It helps them to become independent and also help others. They learn to appreciate dignity of work and cooperation, responsibility contribution and collaboration with co workers and spouses as they become adults. These tasks are as much for boys as for girls. The chores suggested below are a rough guideline of age appropriate jobs for children. Keep in mind that kids are different both developmentally and physically. Some children may be able to do more than others. So here goes:
2-4 year olds: help make bed, put away toys, fetch diapers and plastic bottles, put dirty clothes in bucket, help feed the pets. All tasks would need adult supervision.
4-7 year olds: set the table, help with bed making, watering the plants, feeding pets, start putting on own clothes, bathing, clean up messes, put away toys, put away clothes, carry light bags. Adult supervision would be required as child is learning new skills.
8-10 year olds: water plants, make bed, clean up room, clear the table, do small dishes, do small dusting around the house, cooking basic food like eggs, maggi, milk, keep the garbage out, fold clothes, basic sweeping and swabbing of the floor. Please note that adult supervision would be needed for new tasks.
11 year olds and older children: clean bathroom, clean kitchen, cooking simple to complex dishes, wash dishes, wash clothes, dusting.

If you liked what you read, please share it with others and you can also have a private chat with me if you have any questions about your child.

The clinical picture is suggestive of acute gatro-intestinal infection / typhoid fever. R cbc, widal test, stool c/s will help to exact diagnosis. Treatment will be as per dignosis, antibiotics, iv fluids, antipyretics for 7-10 days.

Green stools are not a problem. But you should avoid bottle feeding /formula feeding for 3 weeks. Consult a lady doctor or lactational specialist to improve milk production. Avoid bottle feeding till 6 months of age.

It depends on the ailment condition and improvement. There is no hard and fast rule, usually a course of 3-5 days is sufficient, in certain conditions like tb and leprosy we give for about a year.

Improper nutrition will lower your child's ability to fight infection. A 10 month old child needs vitamins, iron and proteins which cannot be provided by mother's milk alone. Avoid giving him ice creams, cold drinks etc give him dalia/rice khicdi with dal, vegetables and curd. Give suji/rice kheer, custard, yogurt. Give him fruits specially banana, apple, anar and other seasonal fruits he can now have 3proper meals. Try variety of things without being disheartened. Parenting is a tough job. All the best.

Viral wil take 3-5 days. Dont panic. Continue same meds and give plenty of fluids and try feeding him though he wont be very hungry. If he is sick after 4 days then only ask for reassessment.

Firstly I would advise you never force feed your child. Sometimes children like variations so try some new recepies for him. Small meals at small intervals. If still he has gaseous disturbance you can try with some mild carminatives for few days. Introduce all variety in diet.

I have delivered a baby. I don't have enough milk to feed my baby as after one week of delivery my stiches got broken. Dr. Gave me strong antibiotics and because of antibiotics my milk got vanish. Please suggest me some medication or anything by which I could feed my baby and my milk back.

Antibiotics will not make milk vanish, perhaps it is your anxiety taking toll. Be confident observe colour of baby's urine and frequency, so also weight of the baby for some days, before coming to hasty conclusion. It is easy to start top feeds any time, but remember it is difficult sustain breast feeding with fear, anxiety. Child will lose some weight in first week or so, don't worry about that.
