Every food you take or every medicine you take will get transfered to your child through your feed. Therefore please take only medicines that are actually needed for some urgent problem. Other wise it is best to avoid it for some months.

Hi, I want to ask about my 7 years old boy. He is having worms in his stomach. But there is no stomach ache. At night while sleeping his teeth make different sound. Like rubbing one another. We have given albendazole 2 months before, can we give it again now or anything else?

albendazole is given once in 6 months. some children do make teeth clinching..but it is unrelated to worms.!

You maybe suffering from allergic rhinitis and pharyngitis. You need to avoid the cause of your allergies and also take anti allergy medications. Please consult for prescription. If you have an infection and have fever you will need to do a course of antibiotics. For now do warm saline gargle and steam inhalation 3 times a day.

Hi, that's right what have you heard but if baby is tolerating feeds and passing motions daily with soft consistency and if you are able to capable of managing the hydration of the baby then you should not be worried and can continue with the same. Of any further help is needed can revert back.

Dear Lynbrate user Its late to answer but is your child fine. Most common reason of stomachache in children of this age is worm infestation . Or is your child having loose motions. Hope your child is ok

Hi lybrate-user, thank you for your qjery. Generally birth weight doubles by 6 months of age and trebles by 1 year of age. For example, if a baby born with 3 kg weight, baby will be 6 kgs at 6 months and 9 kgs by 1 year of age. Give her breast feeds and continue to give complimentary feeds 3 to 4 times in a day. Make feeds calorie rich by adding a few drops of ghee or edible oil. Hope I have answered your concerns. Regards, Dr. E venkata ramana.

I am a breast feeding mom. I used to take eldoper for diarrhoea before. I heard its harmful for baby. Please suggest an alternative to be used for emergencies ?

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
Loperamide is a symptomatic medicine, doesn't address root cause of diarrhea. May be you don't need anything ,it is your anxiety creating problem. Meet physician to know.
