Every year 1st week of August is observed as World Breastfeeding Week. There are many ingredients like DHA, cystine in breastmilk which help for proper development of brain. As the maximum brain growth occurs within 2 years breastfed babies are going to be more intelligent. Hence all lactating mothers should make up their mind to feed their babies at least till the age of 2 years.

She may have stomach infection due to which she is having fever and UTI like symptoms .Of course she need antibiotic and antiemetic which you are already giving .Get blood test done for worms as well as it is very common in school going children, which causes repeated stomach infection.

All About Diarrhea in Children

All About Diarrhea in Children

Diarrhea is a disorder that affects people of all age groups. Medically speaking, Diarrhea is a mechanism that the body uses to eliminate germs from the body. Usually this disorder lasts for a few days to a week. It is usually accompanied by nausea, fever and dehydration.

Children can be affected by diarrhea in a number of ways, some of them are:

  1. Infections: Various infections, such as the ones caused by rotavirus and salmonella bacteria can lead to diarrhea. Usually diarrhea in children is caused by viruses; if it is viral in nature, then it can also cause stomach cramps, headache and vomiting. It also leads to loss of fluid from the body. Hence, the child's fluid intake should be compensated accordingly. Usually oral rehydration solution that contains nutrient such as potassium and sodium are preferred.
  2. Medications: Intake of certain medications, such as antibiotics and laxatives can cause diarrhea in children. If the cause is due to antibiotic intake, then you should consult a doctor. The doctor may alter the dosage or ask to increase the child's water intake. Yoghurt may also help ease the symptoms of diarrhea if it is caused by antibiotics.
  3. Food poisoning: Diarrhea may also result from food poisoning; symptoms of this type usually disappear quickly. Along with loose and watery stools, the child may vomit frequently.

The major complication that results from diarrhea is dehydration. Severe dehydration may lead to severe brain damage and seizures. It may also cause symptoms of dry mouth, fatigue, dizziness and dark yellow urine.

Certain preventive measures are:

  1. Use your good judgment while eating outside. Do not consume food from places which use unhygienic modes of preparation.
  2. Make sure your child does not drink contaminated water and there is access to clean and filtered water all the time.
  3. Your child should be eating a balanced diet that primarily consists of vegetable and fruits. They also help in adding fiber to the diet that keeps your bowels healthy. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

There is no medication to increase height. It's as per your parents height. Unless you have some hormonal problem. Size of breast does not increase after the pubertal phase which you already have acc to your history. It increases further during lactational phase. Control your dietary habits. And do exercises to tone your body and muscles.

My dear boy you need good counseling session. Whatever the symptoms you are speaking about are very vague and nonspecific. Some medicines also can be prescribed to you but after your personality analysis. Will be able to get rid of these things and will be able to concentrate on studies and remember the things easily and for long lasting period. We together will be able to strengthen your memory and recalling power. Regards.

Hello doctor my baby is 6 month old he is suffering from dry cough and cold. Which medicine should be used?
Hi, Give following medications: 1. SYP. SINAREST-AF 1.5 ml three times a day for 3 to 5 days. 2. SYP. ASTHALIN 1.5 ml three times a day for 3 to 5 days. Both the medicines are syrups not drops, check the medicines while buying. If your baby develops difficulty in breathing / difficulty in taking feeds / fever, then consult nearby child specialist.

Hi, In young children with fever without apparent focus on physical examination and history is measurement of C‐reactive is useful to identify occult bacterial infection. Now a days it has become test of choice to start early antibiotics to combat infections in early stages.

Are there any long-term effects associated with taking adhd (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) medications? if so, what are they and what medications are implicated?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Current medications do not cure adhd. Rather, they control the symptoms for as long as they are taken. Medications can help a child pay attention and complete schoolwork. It is not clear, however, whether medications can help children learn better. Adding behavioral therapy, counseling, and practical support can help children with adhd and their families to better cope with everyday problems. Nimh-funded research has shown that medication works best when treatment is regularly monitored by the prescribing doctor and the dose is adjusted based on the child's needs.

In the first pregnancy, head decent of baby and labour pains may start late. There is nothing to worry for that. You can wait for 2 more weeks but under the guidance of your obstretician.
