He was treated by doctor as per clinical exam. The widely recommended period is six months by world health organisation. If cough and fever recur meet your doctor. Repeat mantoux test does not reflect progress or worsening except special circum stances such as hiv or diabetes or cancer. Many in our country are positive for mantoux because of bcg vaccination in childhood.

This is quite common for babies on breastfeeding.Upto four to five times a day you need not worry even though it is green, watery etc.Green colour is due to changes in the digestive process of the baby.

What should I give as a food to my 8 month old son? And what shall I use in his body for this summer. He can't tolerate this summer. He likes to leave in cool temperature.

I saw your query regarding feeds to a baby 8 month old, first of all at 8 months old age, he's just trying to accommodate with a new environment as thermostatic centres in the brain are yet to develop so while feeding them you must concentrate on more and more liquid constitution of feeds than solid. Also try to maintain their hydration to avoid fluid deficit because of overheating. Expecting at this age you must have started weaning already, consider calorie requirement as per age along with hydration of the baby.

Your baby is still growing, and this rate will change rapidly. A normal fetal heart rate is not experienced until very late term. Don't worry. Go for another sonogram with your gynecologist and let her help you with the next steps if any precautions needs to be taken etc.

Hi, No, don't give him any thing except mother's milk or formula milk. Her digestive system is still forming and giving fat can destroy it for lifetime.

Hi Anil.... It is not possible to suggest the whole chart.. You can start after the 6 months.. Initially give some boiled pulses water, and fruit juices and soups... don't start abruptly... give gruadually.. and feeding should be continued though at low frequency...

Hello Dr. My daughter is 3 years old, she is very stubborn and often speaks very badly about intimate body parts. We have tried so many times to stop her but she continously embarass us on this issue. Day by day she is getting very hyper. We are very worried. Please guide us what to do ?

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
One thing is certain, scolding & criticizing will worsen the problem. Love her as it is, then explain her your concern, it will probably be accepted. But it's a long journey, needs patience and faith. Examine from where she learned all this and take care in future. You will certainly be benefited by visiting senior experienced child psychotherapist. Hope this helps.

Hello Doctors: My daughter is 08 years old, she is wrapped with chicken pox since last 07 days ,please do advice the best natural treatment,(if any) to cure/eradicate all her spots on her skin, positively,please.

MD Pediatrics
Pediatrician, Vadodara
Chicken pox is a viral condition for which the treatment is only symptomatic. Take care of the child and give her more fluids, juices from fruits, protein rich diet like milk, eggs etc. Rest. Avoid spicy and oily food. Good amount of seasonal fruits.
