Hello, Keep baby covered and avoid taking her out in the evening. You can keep camphor near your window, as it will present mosquitoes entry.

My son age 17yrs but he using drugs, alcohol, chigaratee and others. How can I de addicted him? please advice me?

Diploma in Child Health (DCH)
Pediatrician,
You must consult psychiatrist & if you are in a bigger city there are deaddiction centres. These people need proper supervision and positive reinforcement. You alone can't do it. It is ateam work. But your involvement is most important. Wish you all the best.

Attachment Disorder - Know How It Affects Children!

Attachment Disorder - Know How It Affects Children!

While most children share a strong bond with their parents, especially the mother, some infants are unable to establish lasting relationships with their parents or caregivers. This is known as attachment disorder. It is a rare yet serious condition as it affects the child’s relationships at a later stage and also triggers delinquent behavior. Children, who have been abandoned, orphaned or are victims of abuse are the most vulnerable to this condition.

What causes attachment disorder?
The exact cause for attachment disorder is not yet understood. However, researchers have put together a number of viable hypotheses for this. One such hypothesis suggests that when needs of a child are ignored or when he begins to feel unwanted, the child begins to expect hostility, negativity and rejection. This is a learnt response and the child begins to feel that his needs are unwanted. With time, these responses make the child untrusting and he withdraws into himself to avoid social contact. This affects the development in the brain and causes attachment problems that affect the child’s personality and future relationships.

Risks associated with it
Some children are at a higher risk of attachment disorder than others. This includes

  1. Children living in orphanages or other such institutes
  2. Children whose caregivers are changed frequently
  3. Children who have had prolonged hospitalization
  4. Neglected children
  5. Children who have suffered from physical, sexual or verbal abuse
  6. Children living in extreme poverty
  7. Children born to parents with mental conditions or anger management problems
  8. Children born to a mother suffering from post partum depression

Symptoms
There are two types of attachment disorders; inhibited and disinhibited.

  1. Inhibited attachment disorder: Children suffering from inhibited attachment disorder are likely to be:
    • Detached
    • Withdrawn
    • Unresponsive to comforting ie. they shun all types of relationships and generally do not get along with their peers or caregivers.
  2. Disinhibited attachment disorder: On the other hand, children suffering from disinhibited attachment are likely to:
    • Seek attention
    • Display inappropriate behavior
    • Frequently break social boundaries
    • Be inappropriately familial and attached to selective figures.

Additionally, children suffering from either type of attachment disorder are manipulative, destructive, moody and lack compassion and remorse.
Effects of attachment disorder
If not managed properly in its early stages, this disorder can continue into adulthood. This leads to:

  1. Relationship problems with peers, friends and family members
  2. Low self esteem
  3. Depression
  4. Anger management
  5. Academic problems
  6. Unemployment
  7. They are also at a high risk for drug abuse and alcohol addiction

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

BHMS

Hi, seems to be a case of food poisoning. Give her homoeopathic medicines -- arsenic alb. 30 and aloe soc. 30 - both after every 1 hour of gap for 1st day then reduce the frequency to 2 or 3 times a day till she gets better. Management: -only give boiled or r. O. Water to drink. -give her light non-spicy home-made food (like'khichri' curd, porridge, non-spicy rawa upma without oil or ghee, curd & rice, roasted slice of bread, black tea, pro-biotic like yakult). -avoid food from outside, stale food, dairy & dairy products, junk food. -also keep her well hydrated by giving her plain water, lemon-water'chaaj' (if needed, give her ors solution available in chemist) -let her take good sound sleep and rest.

My son (4 month) had heart surgery due to CHF emergency. He was having ASD (4 mm), VSD (6 mm) & also pulmonary valve stenosis. His surgery is successfully done at AIIMS Delhi, but as per doctors, due to heavy pressure on lungs, they left PFO as open. Just wanted to know, how much PFO can harm, & how we can precaution it. Thank you.

a patent foramen ovale, patent meaning open. For the vast majority of the millions of people with a PFO, it is not a problem, even though blood is leaking from the right atrium to the left. Problems can arise when that blood contains a blood clot.

I do not prescribe antibiotics unless absolutely necessary. CRP is very non specific and is evidence of infection or inflammation. But one should interpret CRP only against clinical background.
