My 5 months old daughter is having running nose, cough and sneeze from yesterday, kindly help.
Dear Lybrate user Usually this goes by itself in 7-8 days but to relieve the symptoms you can try T-minic drops or flucold drops5-6 drops 2-3 times a day.

I have 4 months old daughter. It looks like like her one leg is shorter than the other. Is there any problem with this? what happens if one leg is shorter than other?

General Physician,
Have to measure and see the child. Usually it is the just the feeling of parents and by the time they walk, say by one year there will not be any problem. You can ask privately.

SMA (spinal muscular atrophy) is a disease that robs people of physical strength by affecting the motor nerve cells in the spinal cord, taking away the ability to walk, eat, or breathe. It is the number one genetic cause of death for infants. SMA is caused by a mutation in the survival motor neuron gene 1 (SMN1. Chromosome 5 SMA is caused by a deficiency of a motor neuron protein called SMN, for “survival of motor neuron.” This protein, as its name implies, seems to be necessary for normal motor neuron function. Its deficiency is caused by genetic flaws (mutations) on chromosome 5 in a gene called SMN1. Neighboring SMN2 genes can in part compensate for nonfunctional SMN1 genes. Other rare forms of SMA (non-chromosome 5) are caused by mutations in genes besides SMN. In several forms of SMA, respiratory muscle weakness is a significant problem. It’s the most common cause of death in types 1 and type 2 chromosome 5 (SMN-related) SMA. When the respiratory muscles weaken, air doesn’t move into and out of the lungs very well, with subsequent adverse effects on general health. Signs of weakening respiratory muscles are headaches, difficulty sleeping at night, excess sleepiness during the day, poor concentration, chest infections and, eventually, heart damage and respiratory failure. Often, in infantile-onset SMA, the muscles between the baby's ribs are very weak, while the diaphragm muscle stays fairly strong. This leads to children who appear to be breathing by moving their bellies rather than their chests and to a pear-shaped body in these infants. For chromosomal changes there is hardly no specific treatment and you have to explain the nature of your child's trouble . He needs a neurological treatment for relief of symptoms.

My Son 4.5 years old how to get rid of his bedwetting problem. Please suggest how to stop bed wetting. Is it dangerous if not cured?

Pediatrician, Gurgaon
Some children continue to bedwet upto 5years and a few even beyond. It is important to have an evaluation for treatable causes of bedwetting like urinary tract infection, unrecgnised constipation or incomplete evacuation, presence of threadworms etc.

I am having a 3 years old daughter, who was recently admitted to Hospital due to Nonobstructive refluxassociated chronic pyelonephritis. The doctors have given medicine and regular check up at intervals are being carried out also. But, even after so much of medication, we are unable to remove the constipation. Any suggestions on this issue as to how to resolve the problem.

I think it's vesico urteric reflux. As already pyelonephritis has developed, might need correction. Show to an urologist. Get dmsa scan to rule out scarring of kidney s. For constipation you must regularly use duphalac for many months.

To recomend any advice, it is necessary to know age, weight and temperature of child and type of change in behaviour. As for removing of milk is concerned, it may be normal.

Is painless vaccines safe for a child? please tell.

MD
Pediatrician,
1. There is nothing like painless vaccine. 2. Every vaccine is associated with some pain 3. Whatever there is available in market for human use is made available only after it has gone through three phases of trials (animal + human voulenteers) the forth phase of trial is post sale survays. 4. Please get your child vaccinated immeditely. 5. A little pain will go in few minutes or a day but if the child got the disease it would be more painful for the child and for the family.

Breat feeding encouraged upto one year. After this we recommend table diet to babies. To promote breast milk secretion first think is you need to cosume high protein low fat nutritious food in plenty. Commercially available items are not must to promote secretions. More oten it is just for some psychological satisfaction tomothers. Tin. Versicl. Is not related to the products you use.

Health food for two year kids. Please advice.

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician,
Probably you want to ask about health drink. For my baby, I would not suggest any health drink. If you want to change the flavour of milk, then you may make shakes, chocolate powder to have the flavour, these health drinks are not value for money and these give false satisfaction.

My 3 months baby hasn't sleeping properly at night.

DMB
Pediatrician,
Sometimes a 3 month baby is still yet to develop a regular day and night pattern. Most often they should settle by the time they are four months old . If you are breast feeding, the baby settles down after a feed and a burp. Try to create a semblance of darkness and quiteness during the night and use diapers so that he does not awaken every time he passes urine. Remember try to get sleep when the baby sleeps, to keep your prolactin levels high to help breast milk secretion. A calm mother usually has a calm baby, and so try not to reflect your anxiety on to the baby. Kangaroo care of the baby will also help which even men can assist.

There is no treatment apart from hearing aid for hearing loss. You should also evaluate the cause of her hearing loss.
