Hello , dandruff is basically a fungal infection of the scalp . To avoid getting dandruff , stop oiling especially when you feel the scalp is itchy and flaky as that will aggravate the condition . For now you could apply an anti dandruff shampoo like scalpe etc on the baby's head and leave it for about a minute and then wash it off backwards so it does not go into the eyes of the baby .Use the shampoo twice a week for 4 weeks . Also never tie the hair when wet. Hope that helps !

My child is 4 and half years old girl. She is very thin. How to increase her weight and height?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
We cannot increase height as it is genetic nature and for weight you have to tell her weight to assess her condition. ANyway you need to check her TSH to make sure she does not have hypothyroidism which is a reason for lack of weight gain

Hello My 4 month old baby boy is breastfeed and bottle fed too. He is putting on good weight. Bt he passes green color stool. Do I need to worry?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
We always advise against bottle feeding as it is inherent with many problems. Only breast feed & homemade semi solids are the ideal food for a 4 month old baby. If you stop bottle the stool should become normal. I can give you constant support and advice if you give all details like birth weight and immunisation details, better to ask privately.

Please look for intestinal worms Do not give him any food supplement/chips/candy etc. Just give him a glass of milk twice in morning and evening. Give him Alfalfa Q - 10 drops once daily mix with little water for next 2 weeks and revert back.

Whenever you describe a child's disease her weight is a must to suggest dosage of medicines. If you can buy medicines there without your gp's prescription you give her emeset (ondansetron) syrup 205 ml and inform me. If she still feeds from bottle you must stop bottle and feed her with glass or cup, no matter how much you sterilise the bottle/

Baby should gain minimally around 20 gms per day in first three month of life. Your babies weight gain is much above that level. So no need to worry.

You should get the chest auscultated(thought stethoscope) from s general practitioner or a paediatrician. It's not good to allow cough to accumulate as infants are prone to pneumonia very often.uou can give him warm fomentations and some steam.

Mere bete ka age 4+ hai uski nose se kabhi kabhi blood nikalta hai aisa kyu?

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician,
May be because of finger nose trauma. Ask him not to put finger in his nose. But if it is recurrent, get some blood tests done to exclude blood coagulation disorders advised by a pediatrician having good knowledge about hematology. He also requires local examination by ENT surgeon to exclude local causes.

Hello doctor My son is 3 year old He has cold and cough from last 25 days He has been on medicines ,it is reducing gradually. The doctor has tried antibiotics and has now given deriphyllin syrup. When asked he said the child has asthma. We are shocked by this and can not understand as we don't see any asthmatic symptoms in our child. Your opinion.

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Mumbai
Hello. I understand your concern. Persistent cough is one of the feature of asthma. Repeated cough may be due to diverse reasons. We cannot label child as asthma before 5 years of age. But will have to keep this thing in mind if he continues to have repeated cough.
