It's due to nld block, we used to say naasoor in local language. It's because a nasolacrimal duct might be blocked or narrow or underdeveloped. You can consult eye specialist to learn how to do nld massage. Antibiotics eye drops will help temporarily. If problem persist, nld probing or syringing would be the final treatment after 12 months of age. Best wishes.

Treating Conjunctivitis With Homeopathy

Treating Conjunctivitis With Homeopathy

Conjunctivitis is a medical condition that is marked by redness in the eyes owing to the inflammation of the conjunctiva, which is the membrane covering the white part of the eye. The condition is further characterized by the discharge of yellowish pus fluid from the corner of the eye. This condition, which is essentially an infection, can occur to people of all age brackets. 

Causes and Symptoms:

Conjunctivitis can be caused due to several reasons namely allergies, irritants, bacterial and viral infections, among others. Apart from the redness in the eye, some other apparent symptoms of conjunctivitis are: 

  1. Thin and watery discharge in viral conjunctivitis 
  2. Thick, mucous like discharge ranging from yellow to green in case of bacterial conjunctivitis
  3. Sticky eyelids
  4. Increased reactivity to light 
  5. Blurred or foggy vision
  6. Nasal discharges 

It is difficult to distinguish between viral, allergic and bacterial conjunctivitis. Different fields of medicine prescribe treatments according to the cause of the condition. Although subtle differences, such as thick and thin discharges can be observed, in Homeopathy the cause is not that important. 

Homeopathic medicines are natural and highly effective. The medications, which are prescribed in Homeopathy can more than manage the discharges, swelling, the sandy sensation and redness in the eyes. Homeopathic medicines are effective when the condition causes the eye to get dry, red, congested and swollen. Bathing the eyes with sterilized salt water is also a popular method of treating the infection. In addition to these, Homeopathic doctors also provide tips to curb the likelihood of further complications. Removing your contact lenses while treatment and cleaning your spectacles on a regular basis, if you wear any, are duly recommended.

If she has started passing urine after a period of 1 to 2 years of dry bed after the age of 4 to 5 years, get her urine checked. Do not harass, humiliate or punish her. Just console her. Try to get her awake about 1 and 1/2 hour after sleep to go for urination which is usual time of bed wetting.Bed wetting usually occurs once in a night.

Ideally undescended testis should be surgically replaced within say before 1 year of age. After birth if testis is not in the say then chances of malignant changes increase with every passing month. Initially hormonal therapy may be attempted but if no descent then surgery recommended before 1 year age. It is to be noted with late replacement of testis there's three risk *risk of testicular malignancy *risk of infertility *psychological distress to the child review urgently with a pediatric surgeon and get him treated as soon as possible. Hope this helps.

Your son has got delayed speech and language skills, it could be just expressive delay where child understands everything but doesn't respond verbally. If he has got expression only at word level then kindly see some speech therapist. You can contact me back for further help.

As chances of falling and getting hurt are more with such carts doctors advise not to use such carts, as long as you are near and taking care you can use walkers but never leave children alone when using it. Using a walker will definitely help the child to walk soon.

It may be because the milk might have not reached her tummy and that is why the residual milk comes out.it is not much of a concern but you need to make the baby burp after every feed by holding him upright until you hear him burp.this is important.and always hold him in an angle where his head is always tilted up while feeding.

There is nothing wrong with your baby as it is a normal observation. Just replace breast or bottle milk with semisolids & milk by spoon, gradually increase quantum with increasing age.
