The most common cause of bleeding from nose in the warm environment is drying of nasal mucosa and picking of the nose. Teach him to avoid nose prick,give plenty of fluids.Pinch the nose for few minutes when it starts bleeding and put nasal decongestant drop 4-6 times a day for 4-5 days. Regards

Sometimes small amount of vomits may occur even after burping. It is common in this age. Try to place a folded towel under her shoulders so that the regurgitation of milk is reduced. IPV is mandatory, yes. But you can receive it whenever available. 2 doses within 2 years of age is sufficient for immunity.

Vomiting in babies is commonly due to gastric reflux (GERD). You need to consult your doctor and watch for his weight, gr8een or yellow (bile stained) vomiting and respiratory infections ie cough. The reflux usually subsides as babies start assuming erect posture and diet changes to a more solid form.

Better not to apply permethrine or any other chemical applications to small baby's skin as absorption is more because of large surface area.

My daughter is not feeling hunger properly, tried many home remedies, but did not helped. Please suggest.

MD - Homeopathy

Please try to change and introduce variety of food. Introduce parathas in any form because some children do not like to eat just chapati and vegetables. Paneer, cheeze or any vegetable paratha home made with curd, salad, soup. Can give chapati noodles which children enjoy and it is nutritious also as it contains all vegetables also.
