My Daughter (Age 10 month) has been suffering from fever (101-102, by underarm) from last 3 days. First day her nose was running a lot. But next day onward her nose was ok. On third day there was no fever for almost 18 hrs but again at mid night she got fever. I am giving her Maxtra-P (60ml) according to doctor. Should I go for antibiotic? Is it viral fever or common cold.

I suppose there are no other symptoms except you have narrated. It is usually viral fever but 101-102 temp by under arm should be taken care of. No fever for 18 hours may be due to medicine you are giving. There is no role of antibiotcs in viral fever unless it is super imposed secondry bacterial infection. Your doctor is best judge to assess.

I'm breastfeeding for two years. How can I increase supply. Is there way to enlarge my breast.

Advanced Aesthetics, M.Ch - Plastic Surgery, MS - General Surgery, MBBS

Breast milk is not dependent on its size alone. Breast Enlargement is one of the most frequently performed surgeries and we are the pioneers in central India since last 30 years. To the best of our knowledge no medicines or creams work to increase the breast Size. Enlargement can be done with fat grafting or silicone breast implants. Breast enlargement. Silicone implants are the gold standard world over, very short operative procedure with very gratifying results. The creams and capsules have never actually worked, but since every one is not immediately ready for surgery so the companies use these gimmicks to market their products. If there is lack of substance then augmentation with a silicone implant is the best choice and a gold standard procedure. It is a day care procedure and you are discharge in a very short time from the hospital and it brings about an instant change in breast size and self esteem. Almost 10 crore implants are in use and so it is extremely safe. No one wants surgery unless it is necessary. There is no medication to give the results. No one wants surgery unless it is necessary. NO Creams or Pills actually work except psychologically. Surgery is the only answer. The surgery is almost painless because there are enough medications to keep the pain under control. There is no natural way to increase Breast size, except that after child birth the size may become and remain bigger.

I am 24 years old. I am a student. I have been facing procrastination and laziness in studies for long. I was a good student till school. But after school, for last six years or so I have been very lazy and procrastination in studies. I am lacking will power and discipline to sit and study. I am a lazy person in general. I am intelligent person though, because whatever I study, I can understand very easily. What is wrong with me? Do I have ADD or ADHD? Or it's just that I am lazy and procrastinate when it comes to studies?

On 22nd July my son (4 years old) had 101 fevers at night. I consulted homeopathic doctor (with whom I have consulted earlier and found effective in my son’s treatment of cold & cough). While the temperature reduced, my son started coughing. Homeopathic doctor gave him medicines for cough that I continued administering my son for next 2 days. However, I noticed that the cough increased, even though I also kept doing some home made things (like ginger honey paste, tulsi extract) to help reduce the cough fast. Since the cough increased in next 2 days, I assumed the homeopathic medicine is not effective in curing cough though it cured the fever .I therefore, started giving S-mucolite 3 times 3.5 ml (this was prescribed by our allopathic doctor 5 months back when he had chest cold). As expected, I could see significant improvement in frequency and sound of his cough with each passing day. In next 4 days my son’s coughing reduced to bare minimum though he is still coughing with a heavy cough sound and still has minor cold. I wanted to know whether I should continue only with S –mucolite for 3 more days (full course is of 7 days as last prescribed by the doctor during same type of cough). Should I also add a decongestant like Alex junior as prescribed earlier for regular cough? Or with passage of time the cough will subside and there is no need to start any other medicine. Please provide your suggestions?

Pls continue s. Mucolyte. And beware it is not safe to change or alter or add medication by you. It's registered medical practising doctor shall do so that too after seeing the child. Follow up is must after 3-5 days for such issues.

Hi lybtrate user, even if you are not getting milk that's ok. You can start the baby with semisolid food and slowly you can give her solid food.

I am 30 years old. I am having a baby of 4 1 / 2 months. I am breastfeeding her but I have a doubt whether she is getting enough milk or not .my baby's weight is 5.7 kgs. So my neighbours are suggesting me to take bread & milk for more milk production. Is it safe & healthy for me to take bread & milk daily twice. Please give me the right diet pattern to increase my milk production.

Your baby's weight is normal according to the age. Signs of adequate milk production are adequate weiight gain, 6-8 times passing of urine and adequte sleep. Drink enough water. If you take good food millk production will be good. No harm in taking milk and bread.

Hiccups occur due to irritation of diaphragm after feeding. I think you are over feeding. You can feed only with breast milk and you shouldn't give water either boiled or not boiled.

Its normal for babies to have the deposits of milk. You can take a very soft cloth dip it in luke warm water and gently wipe the tongue its not necessary that you should perfectly clean its just an hygiene practice.

Hello lybrate-user, asd needs closure by device, it does not close on its own. Even if your baby is cliniclly asymptomatic, he will need to undergo this procedure after 1 year of age 2 prevent complications later in life.

Parameter to assess adequate feed to baby is weight gain. If child is not taking feed for last 40 days, she either must have lost weight considerable or may not gaining wt. Now she is 3 month 7 days old and her expected wt must be about 5.5 kg. If she is around this wt, you need not to worry.Whatever feed she is suckling, that is sufficient for her. 2 pediatricians have already checked baby who found baby fine.

Pulmonologist, Faridabad
To answer your question,one need proper history of patient,examination and some investigation.As cough is of less than 3 weeks without fever ,itis more likly to be due to exposure to cold. Try avoiding exposure to cold. Do saline gargling.If no response consult a physician.
