My 3 year old is sick with a temperature of 100 degrees she can not keep anything down including liquids. What should I do?

Please take rhus tox 200 - thrice daily for next 3-4 days. Also -- soak a washcloth in cool tap water wring out the excess water and then sponge areas like your armpits, feet, hands and groin to reduce the temperature. Also, you can place cold, damp washcloths on your forehead and the back of your neck. The cloth pieces should be changed regularly after a few minutes. This remedy is beneficial when dealing with a high fever as it helps keep temperature under control. You can also take a bath in lukewarm water to relax your body. Taking a shower, however, may not be a good idea. Plus, needless to say, take as much rest as possible as it helps the body fight the illness. Note: do not use very cold water as it may cause the internal body temperature to increase. Consult me for homeopathic treatment. Recommend me by clicking on recommend option and leave feedback.

Common Skin Problems in Newborns

Eczema

This is very common after the baby has turned about 2-3 months of age or even slightly later. This appears as a red area with itching on the cheeks or the chest area. These babies usually have very dry skin, and it is also not uncommon for one of the parents to have eczema. This form is called atopic eczema. The severity of the eczema is very variable, but the vast majority grow out of the eczema by the time they reach 15 years of age. This tends to be a persistent problem and needs to be managed on a regular basis.

The most important factor to keep in mind is to use a gentle soap and a pH neutral moisturiser all over the body. The soap and moisturiser needs to be continued for years and the dermatologist may prescribe a steroid or anti-inflammatory creams for brief periods during a flare up.

4 months Baby suddenly having sore throat as a result sound generated when breathing.
Kindly advise.
Only symptom of baby is sound when breathing developed suddenly, is not criterion of sore throat. It is likely tug of saliva in throat may cause throat sound or it may be chest infection. Baby is only 4 month old, it is better to consult pediatrician for early intervention.

If you do not exceed the recommended daily allowance there is no problem. Excess vit d can lead to toxicity. Check his blood cbc and tft. Send me reports also do serum vitamin d level if you want.

YOu have keep a calm and happy mind as milk production is related your mental state. You see if the nipple is retracted and always feed her. After the brest feed is given you can give top feeds with a spoon or filler but no bottle feeding. YOu can also express breast milk and feed it with spoon after suckling at breast. Try Lactare capsule for milk production

Weaning age is 5 to 6 months but not later than 6 months. Continue breast feed up to 2 years. Weaning starts with thin semi solids like suji kheer Dal khichadi etc once in a day to satisfaction of baby.

Try to include more carbohydrates and proteins. Give her more dals, chana, rajmah, soya, egg, chicken, fish, paneer for Protein. Make sure that the child is eating healthy nutritious home cooked meals and not eating junk food. Get the child's height and weight measured regularly to ensure proper growth and development.

Calcium and vitamin supplements are not a must. Only thing is by 7 months, you to wean him off exclusive breast feeding and start him on nutritious semi solid foods. Now you can give him semi solid home food and continue breast feeding to meet his growing body needs.

Hi, I have 3 year old daughter. She is not gaining weight at all. She eats well but then to no growth. I' m very much worried. 2 months before I did some test in which the result was low hemoglobin and more count of wbc. Please help

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
I need to see the results and we need to discuss. It is a vague statement that she is not gaining weight. What is her weight? more tests may have to be done if she is really not gaining weight as you say. Please undersand, to give scientific medical answer a doctor needs to ask you a lot of details. Please read my articles under health tips in the site an consult personally.

Hello doctor. My daughter is 7.5 months old. She is into teething. Can we give any calcium supplement at this stage. Kindly suggest?

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Ghaziabad
It is a very common misconception (unfortunately even smong some doctors) that extra calvium is needed while teething. This is absolutely incorrect if you r giving your baby a healthy diet, including solids, her calcium intake wud b more than enough. As kajol says in tv ads, vit d is essential for absorption of the dietary calc. For this, expose her to sunlight early in the morning or late eve, ven it is not very hot outside.(make sure she wears short dresses, as skin must b exposed to the sunlight).

Psychiatrist, Alappuzha
When a child with ADHD blurts things out or gets out of his seat in class, it's not because he hasn't been taught that these behaviors are wrong. It's because he cannot control his impulses.
The problem is rooted in brain chemistry, not discipline. In fact, overly strict parenting - which may involve punishing a child for things he can't control - can actually make ADHD symptoms worse.
Professional interventions, such as drug therapy, psychotherapy, and behavior modification therapy, are usually required - follow child psychiatry n learn more.
