Till 6 months not advisable to go towards semisolid feed. For working mother advisable to go for formula feeds or top milk in form of cow milk with added sugar. Word of caution here is, no feed is superior than breast feeds in first 6 months of age of an infant.

I removed my sons's one tooth by dentist from root. He is 12 yrs old. What I need to do for his new teeth grow.

Post Graduate Certificate In Endodontics (P.G.C.E), BDS
Dentist,
Dear ! at 12 years of age one have mixed dentition (means both type of teeth are present in mouth milk teeth as well as permanent teeth) so, future treatment will be decided on" which tooth has been extracted milk tooth or permanent one. If: 1) milk tooth is extracted, so permanent tooth will erupt soon as replacement, that can be confirmed by dentist after examining an x-ray to see the location of upcoming tooth. 2) if permanent tooth has been removed then no replacement tooth will erupt in empty space, so, you must show your son to a dentist, who can clarify your doubts after seeing the case. Regards!

Hi, thanks for contacting me. Your son is possibly suffering from eczema/ dandruff of the scalp. Treatment would involve keeping the scalp'moist' use a good quality oil to massage the roots and then wash it off after 10 minutes with a baby'no-tears' shampoo. If the problem persists, talk to me on private chat or consult your pediatrician. Warm regards

Hello, it's little difficult to diagnose the problem. May be she's hungry or may be she' is having pain in abdomen or she's wet or a baby cries before every poo and pee which is normal. Need to find out the cause. Consult a paediatrician.

I am 26 year old and mother of 3. I am still breastfeeding my 1 year 8 months old baby and want to stop now. My breast became saggy, soft and sometimes wrinkled. I want to increase my breast size naturally by homeopathy and diet and also want to lift up my sagging breast. I am very depressed looking at it.

U need surgical correction for loose breast. To increase your breast size: no medicine can increase breast size. No peels or massage can ever alter size. Breast implant is most effective and common procedure to increase size of breast. In this procedure silicon implant of desisted size is pushed under breast tissue. Procedure is done under anesthesia so there is no question of pain. Patient can go home in 3 to 4 hrs. You just need to wear supporting bra for some time and can return to work next day. Externally the look and feel of breast is just like natural young breast. Within few hrs you will regain your confidence and have attractive chest figure. In future pregnancy there is no problem in breast feeding. There is no risk of any major illness or disease associated with this procedure. Implants available in different size.

If your child is getting pneumonia very regularly he may be having reduced immunity. He may be having a heart problem, which predisposes to recurrent pneumonia. Please get suitable blood test, x ray and echo test done with consultation with your local pediatrician.

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.

Pulmonologist, Faridabad
Asthma Problem

Asthma is controllable and not curable, as it is due to chronic inflammation of air tubes which lead to hyper responsiveness of airways to external factors. It may go into remission. Use of laba and ICS combination by inhalation with spacer in most cases is able to control symptoms of asthma that is wheeze, chest tightness, cough and breathlessness. Once the symptoms are under control, then patient can take maintenance dose of ICS by inhalation with spacer to keep the inflammation in the airways under control. Avoid tigers of asthma like extreme of temperature change, dust, smoke, pollution and allergens.
