Newborns, with their soft and sensitive skin, are highly prone to a wide variety of rashes. The rashes often look alarming and are a major source of anxiety for parents. The good news is that the vast majority of rashes are self-limiting in nature and settle spontaneously on their own. However, some forms of rashes need medical attention.

Sir/ Mam My daughter is 7 years old, recently I have noticed that she has been complaining about a burning sensation in the stomach almost every day. I didn't pay much attention before thinking she must be wanting something like ice cream, but recently it has become regular and has got me worried. One more thing she keeps on getting mouth ulcer as well, can you please help me Ms. Surani.

Burning sensation in the upper part of abdomen and central chest Can be due to gastritis, dyspepsia. Avoid giving her oily, spicy and junk food. Try to give regular and bland diet. If it doesn't help you should visit a pediatrician .

What is zinc preparation and how will it cure loose motions in my one year old daughter?

MBBS

What is zinc preparation and how will it cure loose motions in my one year old daughter?
ORS is the first step you have to turn towards. There is quantity of water prescribed on the sachet that is to be mixed for 1 sachet of ORS powder. Zinc suspension helps a lot in infants suffering from loose motion. Z & D drops is the most prescribed one. My pediatrician does so. Ofcourse, these should be given only after consulting your pediatrician. Bifilac Probiotic Syrup is the most effective I have experienced for my daughter. Loose motion, may it be due to any reason, this oral suspension for babies help to cope up with the situation. This is a powder medicine that needs to be mixed with clean drinking water before use. Once the water is added, the medicine can be used for a maximum of 5 days. Rest should be discarded.

Burping after each feeding. Child breath rapidly for 10-15 breaths then slow their breathing for 10-15 seconds then again rapidly:- pediodic breathing it is normal. But without seeing child in person it is difficult to suggest whether it is periodic breathing on something else. Please meet a doctor

General Physician,
What is link between calcium deficiency and new born child? Describe about calcium deficiency in a new born child?
First of all why do think a newborn is deficient in calcium which does not happen normally. Babies exhibit several symptoms while suffering from calcium deficiency, which include: Insomnia Muscle Cramps Muscle aches Jitteriness Tremors Twitchiness Jerking movements of limbs Lowered heart rate Seizures, due to a reduction in oxygen supply to the brain Convulsions Low calcium levels can cause low blood pressure in your baby Tongue-thrusting, tongue and lip twitching, eye fluttering, etc.

Hello lybrate user find out the root cause of your anger. Once that will be clear then one can work on that. Rather then working on the reactions. Your too much anger is the reaction of some issue which you left it untouched. Pls seek help speak to me online. Or opt for professional help.

Diwali - How the Rise in Pollution Level Affects Your Health?

Diwali - How the Rise in Pollution Level Affects Your Health?

The festival of Diwali is greeted with great pomp and splendour and along with the regular festivities, the pollution levels in the air also rise due to the ritual of bursting fire crackers. In an analysis, the rise of harmful pollutants such as sulphur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide seemed to reveal a disturbing outcome.

The rise in pollution during Diwali affects you in the following ways:

  1. The PM (particulate matter which is smaller than 2.5mm) enters your lungs (learn more about lung cancer) and bloodstream and has several health impacts including chronic respiratory symptoms such as painful breathing and shortness of breath which might cause premature death.
  2. High sulphur dioxide levels in the air during Diwali also lead to inflammation of air passages and causes complications in respiration.
  3. A compound called ‘strontium’ found in the atmosphere multiplies by 120 times during the festival and causes bone damage and blood clotting ailments.
  4. Firecrackers contain heavy metals which are toxic to the human body and the amount of magnesium in the air goes up by 22x, which poses a significant threat to all forms of life.
  5. The noise pollution also rises during the festival and in extreme cases, can permanently damage one’s hearing.

However, there are a few measures you can undertake to steer clear of the excessive pollutants present in the air:

  1. Limit the amount of time you spend outdoors even while exercising. This is because the air remains contaminated, days after all the festivities get over and the pollutants take a very long time to dissipate.
  2. Even on the road, drive with the windows of your car rolled up to avoid intake of adulterated air and use a face mask if you are a two-wheeler rider.
  3. Plant a lot of green plants inside your house as they purify the air you are breathing and ensure a supply of fresh oxygen.
  4. Install an air purifier in the room to make sure you breathe in fresh, uncontaminated oxygen when you sleep. The air purifier will also help in lessening your respiratory complications.

Also, in case you notice any respiratory or breathing problem, it is advisable that you consult a pulmonologist, to rule out serious health issues.

What should you suggest in diet for a ten year old son? Can it'll be safe to have coffee. For him? How many glasses of milk he should have?

MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Mumbai
Diet should be two major meals and two short snacks in a day. Milk has no major role. Each majr meal should have around thousand calories with two roti's 1 bowl rice daal. 1 spoon ghee and fruits. Shirt snacks should be rice potato or wheat flour based with a cup of fruit juice. Milk may be added to reduce appetite if the kid is eating heavily and is obese.

Febrile seizures-A nightmare

MBBS
General Physician, Hyderabad
Febrile seizures-A nightmare
FACTS:
1.Most febrile seizures occur in the first few hours of a fever, during the initial rise in body temperature.It occurs usually in children in age groups 3mths -5-6yrs.
2.Most febrile seizures last only a few minutes and are accompanied by a fever above 101°F (38.3°C). Although they can be frightening for parents, brief febrile seizures (less than 15 minutes) do not cause any long-term health problems.
3.Having a febrile seizure does not mean a child has epilepsy.
4Children at highest risk for recurrence are those who have:

their first febrile seizure at a young age (younger than 18 months)
a family history of febrile seizures
a febrile seizure as the first sign of an illness
a relatively low temperature increases with their first febrile seizure

What should be done in case of febrile seizure:

>Note the start time of the seizure. If the seizure lasts longer than 5 minutes, call an ambulance.
> The child should be taken immediately to the nearest medical facility for diagnosis and treatment.
>Call an ambulance if the seizure is less than 5 minutes but the child does not seem to be recovering quickly.
>Gradually place the child on a protected surface such as the floor or ground to prevent accidental injury. Do not restrain or hold a child during a convulsion.
>Position the child on his or her side or stomach to prevent choking. When possible, gently remove any objects from the child’s mouth. Nothing should ever be placed in the child's mouth during a convulsion. These objects can obstruct the child's airway and make breathing difficult.
>Seek immediate medical attention if this is the child’s first febrile seizure and take the child to the doctor once the seizure has ended to check for the cause of the fever. This is especially urgent if the child shows sym.ptoms of stiff neck, extreme lethargy, or abundant vomiting, which may be signs of meningitis, an infection over the brain surface.
