Fever and local sight pain could be a symptom due to vaccine but that too is very rare with the vaccine you have mentioned. So may be child is having some other infection i, e. Developing common cold or cough! wait for a day--> as if vaccine is the cause, symptoms shall disappear in a day.

My 4 year old daughter has suffered with severe chronic constipation since birth. When she was born she was admitted in the neonatal for 9 days due to abdominal distention, feed intolerance, suspected sepsis, vomiting bright green bile and Meconium Ileus. She did not pass her meconium for 33 hours and it was passed due to a paediatrician giving her a suppository. It's now getting worse as she is getting older. She suffers with abdominal distention, leakages, agonising pain, passing a lot of gas and cannot walk sometimes due to the pain. She has been on 5 different laxatives (lactulose, movicol, docusate, sodium picosulfate and sennakot) now of them have worked and she has also had 2 enemas that did not work also. She has had a biopsy done for Hirschsprung's disease and it came back normal and all her bloods are normal as well. She is missing a lot of school due to this and her doctors don't seem to think it's serious but after all the medication she's had I think differently. She used to pass a stool and get some relief for a few weeks now it's just days till the pain starts all over again like she isn't getting any relief at all anymore. It can be 3 weeks before she passes a stool. I've done some research and seen that meconium ileus can be related to cystic fibrosis and I've seen that you can have it in the digestive system also. Could this be a possibility for her?

It is really strange for me to understand how she is tolerating absolute constipation for 3 weeks. It is advisable to get her thoroughly checked in good teaching institutions like AIIMS/PGI Chandigarh etc.

Yes it is safe above 2 month age. Only precaution is to avoid effects of high cabin pressure. You can eliminate that effect by giving" artificial nipple -soother" and or breast feed the baby during take off. Have a nice journey.

Sudden Sensorineural Hearing Loss: Causes and Evaluation

Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist

SSHL is not like any other normal hear-loss trouble. Rather it is quite a severe condition. Sudden deafness can occur at any time due to several reasons. This trouble does not affect both the ears rather only one specific ear is usually affected, and thus this is one of the prominent signs that can help the doctors to understand that SSHL has occurred.


What are the leading causes of this hearing loss?

Head injury: If you have faced any severe kind of head injury ever, then it might bring SSHL. This is why you are suggested to get necessary treatment on time so that this kind of hearing loss can be avoided.
Loud-noise exposure: If your ears are exposed to louder noises or sounds in a consistent manner, then there is a greater possibility of the occurrence of this hearing loss. Thus, you should stay away from unwanted noises.
Ageing: With the increase in age, hearing power slowly decreases. However, if you take proper precautions from the very beginning, then SSHL can be definitely avoided.
Blood-circulation troubles: Interrupted blood-circulation creates different physical troubles out of which hearing loos is one of the most prominent one. And if timely treatment is not provided, then it might get converted into SSHL.
Ototoxic medication: This kind of medication should not be continued for long without doctor's prescription otherwise SSHL might occur.
Lyme disease: This is a kind of disease, which occurs due to tick bites and this is pretty infectious in nature. Apart from that, this disease is now considered as one of the main sources of SSHL.

How to evaluate this hearing loss?

History analysis: The history of the patient needs to be known first otherwise SSHL cannot be perfectly treated. If the history shows that the patient already has an existing trouble of ear loss for which SSHL has been proven, then in accordance with the same the treatment can be prescribed.
Laboratory and imaging: Laboratory analysis is one of the main methods for evaluating SSHL and necessary images of the ears boost the potentiality and importance of this kind of analysis to a great extent.
Quick evaluation: This kind of medical evaluation is mainly made on the basis of the symptoms. The doctors often follow the signs thoroughly in order to determine as to whether the patients have SSHL or not. This evaluation is highly supported by different medical tests that are prescribed by the doctor.

If parents have died of aids there are high chances of passing on hiv infection to kids. If tridot blood test done for kids at 6 months of age, will give status of infection. As tests done early in life may give false positive results. Regarding passing on to next generation, it's very difficult to have these positive kids grow up get married and have kids. If kids are non infective with hiv infection then also chance of passing on to next gereartion is zero.

Frequency: after 6 months you need to start weaning foods apart from breastfeeding. For next one month: 1-2 times other foods (rest breast or formula feeding) from 7th month: 2-3 times other foods, increase to 4 from 8th month and 5 from 9th month. After that 6 times food, plus breastfeeding. As you can see you shouldnot stop breastfeeding, taper it down slowly. After one year day time food plus night breastfeeding. Type 1. You can start weaning foods like rice gruel or kheer or boiled apple and boiled vegetables or cerelac, etc. Initially for one month give only once or twice a day. Rest should be breastfeeding and formula. 3. Exact quantity varies from baby to baby. Don't force feed every time. The moment he refuses to feed wait and try again after an hour or so. 4. Feed in calm and dark place to avoid distractions. 5. After 7 months gradually add home available foods (low salt low spice) like idli, kitchdi, dhal rice, etc in soft form (mashed with hands) 6. Add oil or ghee to each food item. 7. Avoid cows milk till 1 year. Consistency almost liquid like till 7 months, semisolids from 8 months soft solids from 10 months egg yellow from 8 months, white from 1 year fruits and vegetables all types in plenty (atleast two servings each per day) all vegetables can be boiled and given. Apple can be boiled while other fruits like banana papaya orange etc can be given without boiling. Regards.

Since temp is coming down without antibiotic and child is taking diet and is not much down, you may continue medicine. It had been better if you have mentioned medicines for proper advice. Even then it is suggested to consult doctor since child is having sore throat too. Vomiting once is not so significant.

You. Have given very true story of most of six months children. They are getting addicted to sucking at breast. This mostly happens when mother give frequent breast in night time. In lay man term you call it ziddi. To avoid it, you have to have patience, gradualy child have to recognise the impotance that eating food is better and fills the tummy rather than sucking empty breast.

This is regurgitation, not vomiting. Its normal after each feeding. Burp properly after feeding. No need for any medicine. Distended stomach is due to excessive gas passed by baby. Its normal.

I think it's vesico urteric reflux. As already pyelonephritis has developed, might need correction. Show to an urologist. Get dmsa scan to rule out scarring of kidney s. For constipation you must regularly use duphalac for many months.
