You must find out cause for delayed dentition. If all other milestones are normal you can try calcium and vitamin d preparation.

Are there any long-term effects associated with taking ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) medications? If so, what are they and what medications are implicated? What exactly is a spine block injection? Will it work long-term for low back pain due to disc problems? What causes Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and what is the best method of treatment?

There is no spine block injection. There is an injection called epidural steriod injection given for the disc problems of the back and neck if there is radicular pain due to disc bulge and which is known in the mri. The results are variable from individual to individual and some experience long term results even with single injection and some require 2 to 3 injections in a gap of few months. But it is mostly without side effects.

My baby boy is 1 year and 2 months old. He is suffering from diarrhea since past 1 month. In this period we v visited doctor thrice. In our second last visit we were asked to have baby stool test done. In the test it was found that stool has 10-20 mew/f Pus. Occult blood - Present. Reaction - Acidic. We can see RBC in potty since past 7 days. It is basically in form of threads/raisins/drops. I don't know why lab was unable to detect RBC. It was a normal stool test and not Culture one. Doctor prescribed Zinc and enter plus. Also he said stop all dairy products. My child is active and playful with no fever. But lost around 700 grams in a month. On asked, when will the blood stop, doctor told us that it will take a week. My questions are: 1. Seeing blood coming out from babies potty is very heartening and we are tensed, can anyone please suggest what can we do to ensure blood in potty stops quickly. 2. How long will it take before his diarrhea stops. My child is suffering from 1 month. Please suggest what else we can do to stop his diarrhea quickly. I trust my doctor but want a second opinion. Please help. - Very concerned Mom and Dad.

Cradle cap

You might expect your baby's skin to be flawless, but baby rashes and other skin conditions ? such as cradle cap ? are common.

Cradle cap appears as thick, yellow, crusty or greasy patches on a baby's scalp. Cradle cap is most common in newborns and usually clears up on its own by age 6 months.

In the meantime, wash your baby's hair with mild baby shampoo and loosen the scales with a small, soft-bristled brush. For stubborn scales, rub petrolatum or a few drops of mineral oil onto your baby's scalp, wait a few minutes, and then brush and shampoo your baby's hair. If cradle cap persists, ask your baby's doctor about other treatment options
