Don`t worry sabita . Thalassemia minor is not a fatal disease at all, only thing we needs to know is, that hemoglobin in such patients will remain a little low, somewhere around 10 mg/dL, so please consult a pediatric hemato-oncologist so get full counselling done regarding the disease . please dont go by what other people say. For any query whatever it is , consult your pediatric- hemato-oncologist.

My Son 19 months, keeps getting cold again n again. Almost every month. I take him to Dr. who mostly prescribes him 5 ml Advent suspension with other syrups. Is this a high antibiotic? Is there any other home remedy or anything better I can do for him?

There's nothing like high or low antibiotics. All antibiotics should be used judiciously as it may lead to resistance. I think your child is suffering from allergy. Best way is to avoid possible allergen like dust. Pollen etc. Put saline nasal drops frequently into each nostril whenever he has symptoms of cold.

Use of stimulant decreases the symptoms to a much good effect and if we don't give stimulant medication There will be more of conduct disorder and progress in disease and for side effects we have to monitor the person and advice them accordingly

Nebulization is very effective and good for small children. It is difficult for small children to spit out the sputum like older children or adults. So nebulization for babies is very effective in providing relief from breathing difficulty due to stuffy nose. You can also refer to the home remedies for stuffy nose in babies and kids. NEBULIZER IS GOOD DEAR AND ITS MYTH THAT IT COULD BE USED FOR ASTHAMTIC PERSON ONLY.

Take breast pump and express your milk and fed him by this expressed milk. It can be stored in room temp for 6 to 8 hrs in this prevailing temp. Also get your breast check with some mammologist or obstetrician.

My son (11 years) have been suffering from cough since last 2 years. Though the cough is intermittent in nature, he says that something blocks his chest, for which, he coughs. He was diagnosed with anti allergy medicines, but of no use. Can you suggest the remedy?

Pediatrician, Delhi
Please see a good pulmonologist. Two years is too long a period of suffering. He needs to be checked out thoroughly with blood tests and Xray chest. Maybe it is simple asthma, but still!

I have delivered at 37th week. My baby was 2.64 kg at the time of discharge the weight decreased as per the normal. At 17th day weight was 2.5 kg and at 22nd day it was 2.61 kg. I am exclusively breastfeeding my child. Is there a need for Lactodex HMF along with Simyl MCT oil. Or I can wait for a few more weeks for my baby health.

No need to give anything to your baby if you breastfeed him/her properly and exclusively. Weight gain has already started and will gradually go on if there is no other problem.
