4 Common Diseases that Babies are Susceptible To

DNB, DCH, MBBS

4 Common Diseases that Babies are Susceptible To

Infants often suffer from certain diseases which need proper care and timely treatment for quick recovery. At times, it can be difficult to communicate with an infant and understand his/her needs and problems but with a close observation you will surely be able to detect any alteration in the baby's behavior and sense it when he/she is ill. Here are some of the most common diseases infants are susceptible to and what you can do about them.

1. Abdominal distension
It is normal for a baby's belly to stick out after he/she has been fed, but if between feedings there is swelling in the abdomen or it feels hard, it can be an indication of a problem. If this symptom is accompanied by vomiting and absence of bowel movements for more than two days, your baby may be suffering from abdominal distention. This condition may have been caused by swallowing of extra air by the baby while crying or feeding. In such a situation, a pediatrician should be consulted for proper diagnosis and treatment.

2. Jaundice
It is common among newborns to develop mild forms of jaundice as the undeveloped liver is often not able to eliminate the chemical bilirubin from the blood. Mostly, this situation proves to be harmless till the level of bilirubin reaches a certain limit. After that, the disease must be properly treated to avoid damage to the baby's brain or nervous system.

3. Rsv infection
Rsv or respiratory syncytial virus is responsible for causing respiratory problems among infants. Rsv infection usually affects the bronchial passage and shows symptoms like cough, runny nose and mild fever which may even lead to bronchitis. Moreover, this infection may also develop into viral pneumonia, which makes it more important to consult a pediatrician if your baby shows any of the above symptoms.

4. Diarrhea
Infants are susceptible to watery bowel movements due to the action of virus, allergens, specific medications or bacteria. If you observe that your baby is passing stools more often than usual and it is watery, then it may be a case of diarrhea. Sometimes, these symptoms are accompanied by high fever, abdominal pain, lethargy, vomiting, dry eyes and mouth etc. In this situation you should consult your pediatrician and focus on replacing the fluids your baby has lost, to prevent dehydration.

Is digestive problem also results in back stress or pain as well as lower abdomen pain.
Yes it can. Pain due to pancreatitis or colitis can be felt at the back or in lower abdomen. But before concluding on the above statement, I would suggest get a detailed symptom evaluation for a gastrosurgeon / gastroenterologist.

Hi. You are having ulcers as well as GERD. However it is not related to BP or vice versa. But stress and anxiety can be a reason for both conditions. Apart from medications change your lifestyle. Avoid unnecessary stress and anxiety. Sleep properly on time. Take meals on time. Avoid spicy oily and outside food. Avoid tea/coffee, alcohol/tobacco. For medicines you can consult me online.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. Following is what I would recommend for relief - (a) 'Amla Churna' (Patanjali) - 1/2 tsp daily with warm water, preferably before lunch for next 1 month. (b) 'Bael Churna' (Patanjali) - 1/2 tsp daily with warm water, post lunch daily for next 1 month. (c) Ripe Banana with a cup of cold milk twice daily (d) Stay well hydrated, drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of water daily. (e) Streamline diet and lifestyle, exercise for at least 30 minutes daily, and stay relaxed. (f) Restrict flesh foods, and focus more on leafy greens and fresh fruits. Try avoiding sweets, sour and hot/ spicy foods, drinks, greasy, oily, high calorie food stuff including fast foods etc all. (g) Ensure that you reduce unnecessary mental stress and strain that often is the cause of acidity leading to ulcers. Hope this helps. Let know if your problems persist still. Do take care, and all the very best. Sincerely

Drink 200 ml milk every two hours and stop all other foods. Drink a cup of spinach juice every day from third day. If you get diarrhea like feeling change to mattha for a couple of days then come back to milk. Continue for 10 days and your acidity will become a thing of the past.

Yes, avoid it. Here are some home remedies to cure acidity...  - Skip the aerated drinks as well as the caffeine. Opt for herbal tea instead.  - Have a glass of lukewarm water everyday.  - Include banana, watermelon and cucumber in your daily diet. Watermelon juice is great for curing acidity.  - Nariyal paani is known to soothe the system if you suffer from acidity.  - Drink a glass of milk - everyday.  - Have your last meal at least two to three hours before you hit the sack.  - Keeping long intervals between meals is another cause for acidity. Have small but regular meals.  - Try to avoid pickles, spicy chutneys, vinegar, etc.  - Boil some mint leaves in water and have a glass of this after meals.

It seems it is acid peptic disease. Take food at regular intervals. Avoid spicy, oily food, excessive intake of coffee & tea. If it still persists you need take medicines.
