Homoeopathic medicines can completely solve the bedwetting problems irrespective of children and adults. No side effects in homoeopathic medicines. 100% rapid and effective results.

Please be free to approach me and solve your suffering soon with imported german homoeopathic medicines. You can consult online or directly. Thank you.

My one month baby crying continuously for hungry and also crying after going urine.what to do
Always feed the baby in comfortable sitting position, awake baby properly while feeding. Feed the baby at least for 15_20 minutes, each time empty one breast, and give from other if needed, properly burp the baby after each feed. Keep at least 2 hours in between 2 feeds. So baby gets satisfied and won't cry, and no chance of getting colicky pain also. All baby's cry little while passing urine and passing sometimes stool. Don't worry.

Such cough usually does not require antibiotics. Try warm water to drink during cough. For developing immunity give him zinc syrup and Vitamin A 60,000 units daily for a week.

If no runny nose is there. Then commonest cause is blocked nose. Rectify it with using nasivion p nasal drops. I am sure soon it would be fine. Regards.

Hello, lecorrhoea does not prevent pregnancy. However both the partners should be treated for the problem. Treatment is simple and doesn't take much time. It will not cause any harm to mother and child if non infective.

We need more investigations (full mouth x-ray) & clinical examination to decide upon treatment. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and a thorough dental check-up. Limit sugary food to avoid tooth decay. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush. Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months.

Most probably she is suffering from allergic rhinitis, may be seasonal as you described. Common allergens may be pollens and fungi. Get your child tested for allergies and treat accordingly. Avoid allergens if possible and take some nasal sprays under the guidance of your doctor.
