He may have indigestion or other causes have to be ruled out, you tell me all details like when the pain is most, how relieved and if increases with food and we can do dome tests. You give him cyclopam syrup 5 ml when there is pain and inform me privately.

Yes bottle feeding is fraught with many dangers and you are advised to give only breast milk til the age of 4 months (at least) and if you must give other feeds give ti with a spoon or filler after the breast feed.

My son has very dark colour near neck area. Underarms and near thighs. He is overweight and 13 years old. Give some remedies for this.

Pediatrician, Mumbai
Hi. Often such pigmentation is related to fold areas remaining hidden from air exposure. A daily application of a moisture absorbing powder three times a day and keeping the area clean and dry will help.

Educate Your Child To Detect And Prevent Child Abuse

Educate Your Child To Detect And Prevent Child Abuse

Is it just that more cases are being reported or is there an actual increase in child abuse cases? This can be debated, but the hard-hitting fact is a definite increase in the number of child abuse incidents. Unbelievable as it may sound, the abuse is not always about strangers. It could come from unsuspected corners – close family and friends who frequently visit the home and have access to the child. It is not just limited to the girl child; male child abuse is equally likely and is happening.

As much as we try to look for possible culprits, it would not be. Given the number of people in our social circles, both close and extended, it is very difficult to always be on the look. Plus, there are a number of people who are totally unfamiliar (schools, workplace, parks, shops, etc.). The best defense for the parents would be to teach the child about what he or she should watch out for. This should be further enhanced by the parent knowing the signs to watch for as a result of child abuse.

Educating the child is extremely important. Also, emphasize on the child coming back and telling you if anything unpleasant has happened. This is the most difficult and effective aspect for parents.

  1. Talk to your child about good touch and bad touch.
  2. Teach them names of private parts (or alternates if you prefer) and get them to use these.
  3. Emphasize that unless someone is involved in their health and hygiene, there is no need to touch their private parts.
  4. Even lingering touches inappropriately in certain parts (buttocks, chest, thighs, etc.) should be discussed.
  5. Give them the confidence to talk to you, if they even doubt that someone touched them badly.
  6. Do not chide or scold the child, as it is not their mistake.
  7. Even if they are complaining about someone close, do not disbelieve them.
  8. Give them a patient hearing about the full episode, let them talk, and if required, you can always ask for more details.
  9. Cutting them off in the first instance will take away their complete confidence, and they will never confide again. This is very important, as the child needs to believe that he/she is being listened to and believed.
  10. Do not be mad at them; it was not their fault. Give them this assurance multiple times, and let them know that nothing changes as you will help them.

Children get scared and withdraw into a shell if anything happens, and unless they have the confidence, they may not open up at all. Therefore, educating the child is the most important and effective way to control child sexual abuse. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can ask a free question.

I am looking for the cost of recommended vaccination after the age of 5 years of a child. I am looking for injection cost for MMR2, Varicella 2 etc.

MBBS, Diploma in Child Health (DCH), Pediatric Gastroenterology
Pediatrician, Delhi
It is difficult to mention the cost of these vaccinations. It also depends who is the vaccine supplier in your town, and which pediatrician is procuring the vaccine from whom. At 5 years, you just have to give DPT booster which is also available at every government Hospital. So also MMR2. Varicella is available at the MRP approx 1600. (Varilix)

My son is 2 month old and his eye is Lil pink from 5 days and from birth dust and water keeps coming now and then.
You must visit a good ophthalmologist in your vicinity. It can be due to nasolacrimal duct blockage.in this condition drainage of tears are blocked due to non maturation of this tract. And redness and discharge can be due to superinfection. So need to first fix a superinfection and then sac massage wud advised. But for that you need a eyesepecialist to assess your baby. Follow up query cn be done online.
