My grand son is hyper active. He is 5 years old. All the time he does some thing without caring for its consequences. Please advice what do we do to change him.

The child should be shown to a child psychologist. Parents would need counselling on how to deal with the child.

General Physician,
Your issue is normal phenomenon of lactation amenorrhea which all women have for variable time after childbirth by delivery or caesarean. If you have sex make sure to use temporary methods like condom, or vaginal gel to prevent pregnancy before menses start. Ask if you have further doubts. Regards

My daughter, 15 years old is still having nocturnal bed wetting. Please advise me how this can be corrected.

Pediatrician, Kaithal
Please get your child examined from a urologist. Restrict milk and hot beverages after 5pm. Whether child is under stress or depression. Child needs full evaluation before treatment. Last thing please do not punish your child for it.

My baby is two months old. Her tongue and inside gums has become white. She is refusing to take milk. Please advise.
White deposit in mouth is usually fungal infection. Apply or just pour 2 to 3 drops of candid mouth paint over the tounge 4 to 5 times in a day. After response, it may be continued 3 times in a day for 1 to 2 monts. Do not scrap or scratch white deposit. If no response in 3 to 4 days, consult pediateician. In case, if she is refusing feed which I suppose she is not able to suckle instead of refusing, give expressed breast milk with spoon for proper nutrition. If baby is not able to swallow, consult immiditely. Exclussive breast milk is strongly advisible up to 6 monts of age.

hi thanks for your query first of all I would like to tell you that its written pattern is completely disturbed. as per as the dietary habits are concerned first thing you can do is to stop his milk as it is not required at all at this age of 4 years second think the bottle feeding itself will cards abdominal distention as baby swallows air along with milk during bottle feed... also kindly focus on eat daily pattern of motions I would like to suggest you to stop hits afternoon sleep also as he should have a sound sleep during night over at a stretch for minimum 8 to 10 hours which is very important for mental growth of baby

Is Dabur Janam Ghunti is safe for one month old infant ? If yes for how much time it should be continued ?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Is Dabur Janam Ghunti is safe for one month old infant ?
If yes for how much time it should be continued ?
For one month old baby it is not needed though there is no harm in using, dabur janma ghunti, an ayurvedic medicine, plays a dual role in all-round growth of infants. Dabur janma ghunti acts as an effective remedy for stomach ailments arising out of teething such as flatulence, constipation, diarrhoea, vomiting etc. It also helps in the growth process by expelling intestinal worms and toning up the digestive system of the infant with the goodness of traditional ayurvedic ingredients like anjeer, kishmish, ajwain etc.

My 3 year old son shows very strong resistance to take antibiotics (because of the bitter taste) and refuses to take them. When we try to forcibly give him, he spits it out. At times it happens that he gulps the medicine but immediately vomits. Please suggest solution ?

Pediatrician, Pune
He is right, antibiotics may not be always required for each and every illness, they have their own problems, and are very bad to taste, please try one which you are giving to your child. Avoid unjust use and abuse of antibiotics, they are the only weapons with us to fight the deadly organisms, frequent use makes their susceptibility less, and they dont work when definately needed.
