Yes a 3 month old baby can have chicken pox and in that case you Must take her to your pediatrician as it can be dangerous if not treated early. All rashes are not chicken pox, so please check with your doctor to be sure. Rashes with fever can happen in viral illness as well.

Hello Doctor. My son is 16 months now. He is extremely hyperactive child, showing the following symptoms- 1) He doesn't like to play with toys. He just likes climbing on tables, chairs and window grills.  2) If we get him new toys, he will just see it for a few minutes and then throw it away.  3) He wants to be out of the house all time. He cry's to go with any unknown person when they are leaving the house.  4) If we keep him out, he will just start walking. He will not even care to see if we are there with him or not.  5) He is very impatient for something he likes. For example he is very restless while feeding him oranges. He will not allow you to peel it. He just wants it immediately and will hit you if you don't give him fast. 5) Although we keep talking to him, till now he doesn't utter any words, no actions like'bye' etc. He only yells aloud. 6) He just cannot sit in one place and needs someone constantly. If you don't play with him even for a few minutes, he will put his head on the floor and start moaning in frustration. 7) He has been a troublesome child right from birth. Hardly used to sleep for just a few minutes during the whole day and night. Now, although his sleeping pattern has improved during the nights. During the day he still sleeps less. Probably around 1 hour if at all he sleeps. 8) When he was smaller, around 9-12 months, he used to watch television advertisements with great attention. He would not blink his eyes even if you nudge him or pat him lightly on his head. This is the only thing that grabs his attention, even now. Doctor, is my child showing signs of any disorder or is it too early to predict? Does he need any treatment? please help. Thanks.

How to build confidence in my daughter which is 6 years old She has scared to do something independently in school or class eg. Show n tell activity She feels insecurity at outside She wants someone to be with her.

Pediatrician, Delhi
On sundays take her along to a park, leave her there to play independently with other kids, if possible give her a rope for rope skipping, give her almonds soaked overnight with milk, also give cod liver oil pearls 1x3times. If possible keep a small dog as pet and let her play with him.

When to start food for my 6months daughter and should I feed her other than milk?

DM - Neonatology
Pediatrician, Delhi
When to start food for my 6months daughter and should I feed her other than milk?
At the end of 6 months. Start weaning first with soft semisolid foods like suji ka halwa, bananas, mashed potatoes, slowly in a few weeks add more solid. At the end of 1 year, your child should take 3 big katories of meals, and 2-3 snacks in between. You can also start top milk (cow's milk) over and above breast feeds. Breast feeding should be continued till 2 years.

If a child vomits within 30 minutes of giving any medication it has to be repeated. Try to give in small amounts.

Medication is not the answer for every problem, in fact it is not most of the times. Go to gym and exercise under guidance of knowledgeable experienced trainer. Hope this helps.

Hii From the information you have provided,looks like your daughter is suffering from a viral infection which can be managed by paracetamol. Usually it will take a few days to resolve. In case she develops some new symptoms kindly consult a paediatrician. Warm Regards.

Hello, I want to know which vaccination is better for my baby painful or painless. Regards.

Hello, I want to know which vaccination is better for my baby painful or painless. Regards.
The painless vaccine has currently lost favour in view of the increasing number of children detected to have got the disease inspite of vaccination. The efficacy and duration of effectiveness is lesser . Hence these days it is advocated to use the painful vaccine, unless the child had had very severe side effects earlier, or has a history of fever induced convulsions.

Hi want to increase my lactation I am already taking methi water everyday morning. My baby is 2 months and I supplement her with enfamil.

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
You need confedence to feed the child successfully. Lack of faith in self, suspicion reduces milk secretion. Observe weight chart. If it is normal don't worry. Top feeds confuse children and they shift from breastfeeding to formula feeds it's lot more easy.

Viral wil take 3-5 days. Dont panic. Continue same meds and give plenty of fluids and try feeding him though he wont be very hungry. If he is sick after 4 days then only ask for reassessment.
