Usually the scar marks will disappear with time. You may have to meet a plastic/cosmetic surgeon/skin specialist for the same for true results.

Most likely he had food or water contamination may be due to outside food, water and heat. Now you can give him electoral water and sporolac tablet and soft diet like curd rice dal water coconut water etc. Always try to avoid outside food and water.

Technically, having a young baby doesn't bar your eligibility for chickenpox vaccine. However, small number of people can get a mild chickenpox like illness after getting vaccine. This chickenpox is contagious.

Newborns take time to adjust their stool habits. It is absolutely normal for a newborn if he passes stool 6-8 times a day or he doesn't pass for three days. Any thing else needs some evaluation. Mothers feed is ideal for the baby kindly continue.

Dear lybrate user, your son might be having some health issues. There can be many reasons for not having solid food. If he is having any difficulty in digesting the food, then he will not be hungry also. Please do not force him to eat. Kindly take him to a doctor. If there is no physical problem, then you might have to look into his emotional needs. Talk to him about himself, school, his friends, his games, hobbies etc. If he is not happy about something, he will be able to share that with you, which ultimately will lift up his mood and make him more active and energetic and then he might start having food on his own. Pursuade him to play physical (not computer games) games of his choice.

Height depends on genetic & envoirnmental factors. Longterm steroid administration may lead to stunting. You only have little chance of increase in height now.

Insist for proper nutrition regime than asking for a tonic. A 3 year child should take food like an adult. Do not accept any reasons to avoid food in solid form, but take care of child liking for a particular food. Explain her importance & need of healthy food in simple words with live examples.

Add semi solids and solids like dal roti khichadi kheer etc well cooked in oil or ghee in her diet. If she is taking milk in small quantity, increase frequency. Do not force. Passing urine many time may be due to excess water intake which contribute to taking less diet too.
