These scars are scaling, oily yellowish. It may be cradle cap which usually lasts up to 6 months of age, requires no treatment except you may wash it with baby shampoo. Some suggest to remove it gently but I personally feel not to scrub it. Else consult either pediatrician or dermatologist.

My daughter is 11 months old and diagnosed with partial lactose intolerance at 2.5 mths old, she was partially taking mother milk until 7 mths age, she is now taking only zero lac milk powder. Her weight has been constant at 8 kg since past 2.months. what special care that should we do ? Any diet plan that she can recover on permanent basis ? I will be very gratefull.

Lactose intolerance is usually transient. Have you tried to introduce cows milk again or not ? You must try by giving some rice kheer or dahi chaval and wean the baby off the zerolac milk .

As you have mentioned that he is looking normal but some time he becomes hyper. At this age child becomes fussy some time which is not unusual. This may be due to not fulfilling his desire which could have been done in his early age out of too much affection and love and at his indication with out making him to speak, this may be reason of his not speaking well. If you don't find the reason for your son, pls consult pediatrician or psychiatrist.

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
Remember- never leave toddlers unattended.

My son is 3.5 years old and weighs 14 kg. Was having a repetitive condition of pain and stiffness behind left ear with fever and cough and cold. Which was diagnosed as left cervical lymphadenitis the condition is repeating after almost a month. And has repeated fourth time. He has been on antibiotics like zifi for 3 or 5 days. And on the last occasion linezolid for 14 days. But it has again repeated with same symptoms. A little worried wants to seek expert advice. Please help.

Just check for painful swelling behind ear. Pinna. If so then any scalp condition can cause it. Otherwise it is part of cold and due to seasonal change. Just cold medicine will help child for both. It will subside in 2-3 days. Or else you can visit Dr.in your area. Thanks.

Eating a piece of cheese after a meal helps in pulling away some of the plaque and leftover tiny food particles from meals. And since it contains calcium, it adds to the health of teeth and bones as well.

Hi, my 2 1/2 year old daughter has severe cough from past 10 days. Tried many syrups but didn't work. Not sure whether its due to reflux or infection in lungs. Looking for a best pediatrician who doesn't do experiments on children. Please do the needful. Thanks in advance.

Pediatrician, Tumkur
Cough is a protective reflex to expel out any phlegm in the respiratory tract. You should not try to suppress it. If there's fast breathing show to your doctor immediately. If cough persists for more than 2 week, then only it needs thorough evaluation.

Till 6 months I gave breastfeeding. Still continuing to give. Bt can I feed my baby girl Amul milk if no why?

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Ghaziabad
How old is your baby now? stick to tinned milk till 9 months, ven she should be given 3 solid feeds and 3-4 milk feeds. At that age, if she is eating 3 times properly, you can switch to amul milk, that too 2 times plus 2 of your feeds.

Hi lybrate-user You need to take a proper diet as you are feeding your baby. Kindly avoid any dieting regimen of eating less in a day to decrease weight. You should focus on eating high fiber diet that includes peas, beans, spinach, avocados, whole grain flour, barley, oats etc. You can also start with very light exercises of yoga at home.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Vitamin D deficiency is quite common in infants and children. It can be corrected by giving Vitamin D3 liquid or drops. There are many brands available. Secondly my advise pleae take an X-ray of the knee and wrist of the child and take radiologist's opinion to see if there is problem with bone growth. Start Vit D supplements. Plus milk and exposure to sun also are helpful. Thanks.

If your nipples got sored due to bitting. You can apply ointment soframycin twice a day. If it pains more you can try ointment zytee. Apply it and leave it for 10 min then clean it and can feed your baby. You can also use nipple shield for the same.

Asthma & Homeopathy Treatment

Asthma is nothing but difficulty in breathing due to various reasons.Here the air passages will be narrower n causes patient feel more suffocated, hard to take normal breathing, with excessive sweating, restlessness, Oppression of chest,Deathly feeing. All these depends on the Chronicity, severity of Asthma. First the acute attacks may lead to chronic with increased intensity,long duration. Some times the patient may die to the severity of symptoms like gasping .

It may be Cardiac in origin[where it is a bit critical, complicated], n mostly Lungs related[Bronchial]. Usually, we see the Br. Asthmatics only in general, in early ages, etc. Here In Bronchial Asthma, the origin may be due to the allergy of patient to certain food like sea food, cold things,Fish, pea nuts,egg, fragrance, perfumes, dust, pollution, chemical exposure n intake,Pollen etc. Stress also may act like triggering factor for Asthma. Hormonal imbalance in certain ages, Mostly hereditary also plays important role.Initially people who used to get allergic rhinitis, Atopic Dermatitis, Skin allergies from all above causes will gradually develop into Asthma, If, were not taken proper care.

Here in Homeopathy, taking treatment in initial conditions like in Allergy stages itself. Will definitely help in preventing from getting Asthma.Even after Asthma developed also, depending on other causative factors, then also It can be treatable with Homeopathy .
Few Homeopathy remedies that will work effectively for Br. Asthma are natrum sulph, where the patient suffers asthma from cold weather, cold things, damp, wet weather. In he same way, Arsenic album{asthmatic attacks will be more @ r after 12-1am/pm, Antim. Tart, Carbo.Veg[where the atient needs more ventilation, there will be gasping for air. Air hunger], sambuccus,Kali.Carb[when the asthmatic attacks are more @ 3am, Ipecauc,Blatta orientalis[in mother tincture from], Kali.Bich, Nux. Vomica[when c/o is associated with gastric c/o]. Like this though the c/o is known as same, but based on symptoms accordingly, the drugs should be chosen.
Avoiding the aggravating factors will help preventing suffering a lot. But when those are not all avoidable, then starting the treatment early will help the patient definitely, when they give picture of their suffering properly to an Expert.

Hello Dr. my son is 9 years old is suffering from bed wetting problems but only in night. I scolds him sometimes but he is not overcoming from this problem till now. What should I do please help and reply. Regards.

Scolding makes the condition worst. Stop scolding. Take it easy. If he has started bed wetting after dry period of 2-3 years after age of 3 years and urine R/E is normal, ask him to go bath room before retiring at about 10 O' clock. Do not make him conscious of his act and do not show your or any family member's unhappiness. I hope he may come out of this.
