You can use paracetamol suppository to bring down the temperature, but if she is not able to keep down even liquids, you need to take her to Dr. Asap to check whether she is dehydrated.

Since you have been trying for baby naturally for 4-5 years and not able to succeed, so you should think of next step i. E. Iui or ivf, these are the processes which will help you conceive baby of your own. To find out the cause that why you are not able to conceive naturally you need to do some tests as follows: lh fsh amh tsh prolactin usg antral follicle count and husband semen analysis.

Mouth Gargle with Warm Salt Water

Mouth Gargle with Warm Salt Water

Mouth gargling with warm water with salt added to it is a very effective method especially in chilling winters to reduce tooth ache arising due to sensitive teeth. Though it relieves the pain, consult your dentist for permanent cure.

It is quite normal for children to go off their diets off and on. If he is gaining weight adequately you could relax.

Because his request are completed by non verbal actions. You have to make him speak by ignoring his activities. Leaving him in children of similar age group will be useful. Correct his words & pronunciations when needed. Never imitate childs voice & words for joy.

There is nothing to give quick rise. Growing takes its own time provided good balanced nourishing diet is given. Your baby is under wt. Add oily stuff in his diet.

The best possible way while dealing with allergy is to prevent exposure to the allergens that is to say you need to avoid avoid contact of your son with all those things that cause allergic reactions. The present episode can be treated with cetirizine based on his weight. Warm regards.

Hello lybrate user...ADHD is a highly undiagnosed condition in our society. While around 3 to 5 percent of children and young adults have this problem. ADHD is mainly of three types Inattention type, Hyperactivity Type and Combined Type. For ADHD to be diagnosed the minimum criteria for your age of 5 out of 9 symptom list in either one or both the domains of ADHD should be present. Many of the symptoms of ADHD like impulsivity etc are common with borderline personality disorder and hence it warrants a detailed interview. Once the diagnosis is clear a good approach for its treatment can be undertaken. I would suggest you to get in touch for further exploration and a detailed interview.

Asthma - 10 Ways to Keep it Under Control

Asthma - 10 Ways to Keep it Under Control

If you are experiencing a whizzing sound while you breathe or having difficulty in breathing, you are suffering from asthma. It is a medical condition characterized by paroxysmal wheezing respiration dyspnoea. There is no definite way to prevent asthma, but by following a step-by-step daily plan, you can prevent asthma attacks or keep them in check. Here are some important measures to follow to prevent asthma:

  1. You need to strictly follow your asthma action plan. The plan should be laid down after a detailed discussion with a doctor or healthcare team. All the medicines you require to prevent the asthma attacks will be written down for you.
  2. You should get vaccinated for pneumonia and influenza. This will prevent these conditions from triggering asthma attacks or flare-ups.
  3. You need to identify the asthma triggers and stay away from them. Several outdoors irritants and allergens from pollen to cold air can trigger asthma attacks.
  4. You have to monitor your breathing. By recognising the warning signs of an attack like wheezing, slight coughing or shortness of breath, you can prevent an asthma attack. You need to measure and record your peak airflow regularly using a home peak flow meter.
  5. By acting quickly, you can identify a fatal attack and prevent it from occurring. When the peak flow measurement decreases, you need to take your medicines immediately and abstain from any activity which may have triggered the attack.
  6. You need to keep taking your prescribed medicines, even if your asthma symptoms have improved. You should not change your medication schedule without consulting a doctor. It is recommended that you to bring along the medicines you take at your doctor’s appointment as he will be able to tell whether you are taking them right.
  7. If you use your quick relief inhaler a lot, the asthma is not under control. You need to visit your doctor as soon as possible and he/she will make some modifications to your treatment.
  8. For prevention of asthma, you should use allergy proof pillow covers and mattresses. You must wash your bedding every week in hot water to eliminate dust mites. You may use a dehumidifier for reducing excess moisture to prevent mold.
  9. Do not allow your pets in the bedroom and on the furniture. Pet dander is a common trigger of asthma and it cannot be avoided by people who own pets.
  10. You can also fit an air filtration system in your home. It will help in the elimination of asthma triggers such as pollen, dust mites and other allergens.

Many doctors suggest immunotherapy for asthma prevention in the form of allergy shots. Immunotherapy aims at altering a person’s immune response by making it less sensitive to asthma triggers.

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.
