My son (19 months) does vomit every almost 10th day. Yesterday night same happened. He did vomit whole night, like 7-8 times in a night, around every 1.5 hour. He took milk around 5 am and he vomited in just 5 min, then in morning he just a sip of water and he vomited same, after 1 hour he is having fever and cranky. He is not eating anything. Doc always give some powder to increase bacteria in stomach which digest food. What to do? No clue for why it happens and when it will stop.

Try light diet in dinner at least 1 hour before retiring and never force to feed him without his desire. It may be possible or just co-incidence that he may be getting heavy diet at night in about 10 days interval. Watch his weight. If it is about 11 kg, you need not to worry. It should be about 12 kg at 2 years. Fever may be due to some other reason. If temp is more than 100 degree f, you may give paracetamol 125 mg and consult doctor.

Avoid crowded areas and do keep a cotton plug in both ears before takeoff and landing, better if child keeps chewing while take off and landing. Also can use ear drops for the same.

ADHD in Adults

Concentration problems and trouble in focusing on one task at a time can be termed as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or ADHD, in rare and severe cases. While most of the cases are identified in one's childhood, it has been seen that many cases persist into adulthood while still others go completely undiagnosed. This mental health disorder comes with a number of symptoms and management methods. Read on to know more.

  • Symptoms: While many patients suffering from this disorder may not display any obvious symptoms at a young age as children are supposed to be brimming with energy, the symptoms for adult ADHD, start to show up in a more obvious fashion. Wavering concentration and low levels of focus along with disorganised living with impulsiveness are the first signs of adult ADHD. Such adults also have trouble when it comes to finishing one task at a time, or even focusing on a task for a prolonged period of time. Bouts of impatience and excessive activity can also show up as symptoms, while restlessness is a quality that most of these patients seem to possess.
  • Diagnosis: The diagnosis of this condition is slightly difficult because most adults may complain of some or the other symptoms related to this condition at some point in their lives. Anxiety and mood swing related symptoms can help in diagnosing the condition in a better manner. If the condition ends up disrupting your normal life, work, socialising and behaviour in general, then you may want to see a doctor regarding the same, so that proper diagnosis may take place.
  • Causes: While genetic predisposition is said to be the foremost cause of this condition, especially when it continues well into adulthood, there are various environmental factors that may also have a significant bearing on the onset of the condition. Exposure as a child increases the risk of falling prey to this condition. Also, when there are problems with the central nervous system during the developing years, the patient may start to develop symptoms connected with this disorder later on.
  • Treatment: Stimulants and other medication like anti-depressants, nonstimulant amphetamine are also used for treating this condition along with therapy and psychological counselling for better organisation in life.

My 15 month old son is constipated. We gave him an oral laxative, still he is not passing stools. It has been the case since a month. Please advise.

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Faridabad
Stop bottle feed and give him high fibre food. To treat constipation laxatives have to be given for at least three months with changes in diet. Most of the time such babies have pain while passing stools. They may be having fissure in ano that is wound at the anus, local anesthetic agent may be added and luke warm water wash of the anal region may be done to relieve of pain.

My son is 4 years old from past couple of months he is passing his motion immediately as soon as he eat I had consulted our family doctor he is homeopathy says its normal but he looks very sick kindly suggest what to do next.

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Jaipur
At 4 years of age a child weight should be around 16 kg & height around 101 cm. It is obvious that your child is grossely undernourished & needs urgent attention to correct dietary habits,quantity& frequency.Recurrent loose motion has added to dietary defieciency, Unhygenic feeding habits is commenest cause of frequent loose stools. The child requres councelling by a dietition to overcome possible growth stunt.

It is completely curable . Allergy is due to lactose in milk and enzymes neutralising it like Nolac can be added to milk for feeding the baby

You can use antibiotic eye drops 5-6 times daily for 2-3 days (tobrex eye drops) if she doesn't get relief within 2-3 days consult local Opthalmologist, please don't use mother's milk to eyes to get relief from watering & discharge, with regards

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. It will be best to get her examined thoroughly because she is very young. We might require x rays and inflammatory profile markers looking at her age to rule out certain issues. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation.

First of all do not force to eat. Offer food frequently and different things and if possible in different forms. Decrease milk intake and let him be hungry for sometime.

What should be give to 7month old baby for loose motion when baby is on teething

DMB
Pediatrician,
Your baby is teething because he is putting things in his mouth. However clean all his surroundings, he is exploring various tastes. If you are breast feeding, chances are that his loose motions wont be severe. For loose stools, give a probiotic such a bifliac sachet in two tsp water twice a day for two days, rehydration fluids such as rebalanz ORS and zinc syrup 5 ml once a day for 15 days. If he does not have good intake of fluids and is passing very little urine, he will need IV fluids.
