You have not mentioned his weight. If his wt is about 12 kg, it is normal for his age. Avoid chocolates, give him good nourishing home made diet of his choice. Chocolates and other sugar rich items reduces hunger so nourishing diet. Add dry fruits in his eating items. Consult dentist for cavities. To prevent cavities, oral hygiene is important.

All About Bronchitis

MD PULMONARY, DTCD

All About Bronchitis

The inflammations of the lining in the bronchial tubes, which are responsible for carrying air from and to your lungs are known as bronchitis. It is a respiratory disease and more than a million cases are reported each year. Bronchitis requires medical diagnosis by your healthcare provider and can be chronic or acute. Cold or other respiratory infections can cause acute bronchitis whereas smoking leads to chronic bronchitis. Acute bronchitis usually lasts for few days but with persistent cough. Whereas, chronic bronchitis can be responsible for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Symptoms of bronchitis:
The symptoms common to both acute and chronic bronchitis are given below:

  1. Cough which may form mucus
  2. Body aches and breathlessness
  3. Headaches, blocked nose and sinuses
  4. Fever with chills
  5. Wheezing

The diagnosis of bronchitis is done by your doctor who will ask you about your cough. Some other questions may include your medical history, about smoking or whether you have had cases of flu or cold recently.

Treatment for bronchitis:
Your doctor will mainly recommend pain relievers and cough syrup along with warm air to breathe mainly at indoors. However your doctor may prescribe the following medications in cases of severe bronchitis:

  1. Cough medicine: These medicines will help to remove mucus and irritants from your lungs. Medicines may not be able to suppress the symptoms completely but will give you relief from pain.
  2. Bronchodilators: Which clears out the mucus by opening your bronchial tubes.
  3. Mucolytics: These helps loosen mucus in the airways and help to cough up sputum.
  4. Oxygen therapy: It will help to improve the oxygen intake when you face difficulty in breathing.
  5. Therapy: Pulmonary program will include a therapist who would work to improve your breathing.
  6. Medicines: Using anti inflammatory medicines to reduce damage to your lungs tissue and to also avoid chronic inflammation.

Prevention of bronchitis:

Acute and chronic bronchitis can be reduced by the following measures; however, they cannot be completely prevented:

  1. Avoiding dust, smoke, and air pollution. You can always wear a mask when you are on the road or in traffic.
  2. Washing your hands often to avoid germs and infections.
  3. Avoiding smoking as it can cause harmful damage to your lungs. 

    If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Hello, A 3 yr old should eat everything that is made for the entire family. Food ethnicity plays a major role. Teach him to eat food that is made in your household, as he has to follow that all his life. There should not be a separate treatment for him.

App pehele to ye pata kar me ki bache ko leg me pain rahata hai ya koi air taklif hai. Agar calcium syrup dene me bad bhi bache me leg me pain rahata hai to bache ko calcium metabolism me taklif hai. Bacha calcium absorb nahi kar pa raha hai. App ek bar bache ki serum calcium karwa lo. Uske badme him bats sakte hai ki kya karan ho Santa hai.

Treatment depends on type of rashes. If these rashes are not red and having gray or blackish white patches, this may be cradle cap. You need not to worry, just apply coconut oil as soother.

My 2 yr 8 month old son has few non tender left cervical lymph nodes for last 3-4 months. Though he often suffers from urti, but these nodes persist even without infection. Should I be worried?

MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Ranchi
I wont be overly worried if it is not tender as you have mentioned, not rapidly enlarging in size and not associated with any weight loss or positive family history of tuberculosis. The lymph nodes are a part of immunity and it regresses as the child grows.

Ent specialist or pediatrician, both r equally competent to treat. U may consult any one. If any intervention is required, ent specialist can do it. For passing stool problem, give her fibrous food good quantity of water. Gud (गुड़) in stead of refined sugar may be helpful. Train her for toileting habit.

Is your baby in a daycare/creche? are you in a joint family? usually babies this age catch various viral infections as cough and cold with or without fever from other children or adult contacts. This is usually acceptable so long as they continue to grow normally and are not anemic. Each episode should be treated symptomatically.
