I am in Bangalore. My daughter (2yrs 10months) has fever since Tuesday morning. She has cough as well.The pediatrician said its a regular flu and prescribed dologel for fever less than 102 and meftal for >102 fever. Earlier the fever came at 4 hrs intervals. Since yesterday morning , her fever came at intervals of around 7-8 hours. Is the line of treatment ok?

Don't worry. Approx a child is thrice his birth wt at the age of one year. Hence his wt should be around 9 kg. He is now around 8 kg. A little difference is acceptable. He is not grossly underweight. Don't worry.

Pediatrician,
Acute renal failure of non-renal origin when treated successfully will have no further consequences. But in absence of information about primary reason of failure, it's difficult to comment.

Generally infants in this age have long sleep periods so need not worry if they are feeding well and passing urine well.

How To Manage Broken Front Tooth In Children

How To Manage Broken Front Tooth In Children

You often get into this mess of losing part or whole of the tooth, and this is actually a nasty situation in several ways. You may get severe pain there, or the sharp edge of the broken tooth may cut the cheek and other areas of the skin in the mouth white chewing or biting. Besides, if left untreated the broken part may accumulate dirt and food particles and can later form serious infections in the gum too. It looks bad too when a front tooth is broken, and often leaves your inner mount with cuts and abrasions when the sharp edge of the broken tooth rips of skin inside the mouth as you chew.

The first aid part

There are several ways to manage the broken tooth, and the first steps of first aid after the incident are as follows:
-  To control the acute pain after the tooth break, you may take a painkiller like acetaminophen. This will soothe the pain, and make it much easier and bearable.
-  You must try sticking some sugar-less chewing gum on the tooth to prevent cutting inside the mouth. In case a gum is not available, you may try putting some simple wax in there.
-  Try gulping the food and chew less, or go on a liquid diet to avoid touch of much food with the broken tooth unless it gets the first treatment.

Filing and Bonding- the initial treatment
On going to the dentist based on the tooth break condition, you will be suggested various remedies. A tooth filing or bonding is the general remedy. If a small portion of the tooth is broken, then the tooth can be simply filed in case it is one of the rear teeth. The tooth will be chipped and filed to smoothen the cut edge so that it never again pokes the skin around. 
If the break is not small, then bonding is a good option. The dentist fills the rest of the tooth space with a resin or porcelain material to make it look whole and natural again, and this solves the problem both physically and cosmetically.

Crowning the tooth
If the tooth is damaged more than a root canalling may be needed, and thereafter a cap or crown will be worn over the broken teeth so that it gets a natural look and the hardness to chew. You may lose sensations permanently on the tooth if the root nerve is blocked during the process. Else you will have a cosmetically working tooth for a few years until the crown wears off and needs a re-crowning.

Cannabis An Ancient Treatment For Epilepsy

Cbd oil for epilepsy


Cannabis indica and cannabis sativa have been used therapeutically for thousands of years, including for the treatment of epilepsy. Today, cannabis is viewed as a controversial medical subject - thanks in large part to prohibition and decades of misinformation - but prior to 1937's 'marihuana tax act' cannabis was accepted by doctors and patients as a true medicine, and considered one of the safest and most effective forms of seizure control medication.

Vomiting after feed is called regurgitation which is normal. Burping is solution for this. If baby is gaining weight about 30 gm per day there is no cause of worry. Continue exclusive breastfeeding up to the age of 6 months. If no relief consult pediatrician.

MBBS, Diploma in Child Health (DCH)
Pediatrician, Mangalore
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.

in those rare cases, formula feed is allowed. but breast milk is still most preferred. at least for first six months. you can not judge the status of immune system today. but my advise is to give healthy emotional environment along with nutrition. then only your baby will have strong immune system.

I believe you are talking about albumin ++ in urine - condition known as proteinuria or more scientifically, albuminuria. This can be a manifestation of kidney disease. You may consult a paediatrician or a nephrologist for the same.

Hi sir my son is just 10 month and his teeth is coming and he is doing loose motion and vomiting suggest what to give him for relief.

Pediatrician, Pune
While teething, there is some irritation in the gums, children tend to put everything the catch hold off in the mouth, to reduce the irritation, if the objects, hands are not clean, there may be some infection leading to vomiting, diarrhoea, and also as children learn crawling in this age, their hands are there feet, and they put those hands in the mouth - leading to problems, this is part and parcel of growing up, unless his vomiting diarrhoea are not associated with significant illness dehydration, you need not worry, ensure that you you keep a clean hygiene, and whatever objects that he puts in his mouth are clean.

My 3 month son is not doing his potty since 6 days. What to do. Is there any problem ?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
For a breas fed 3 month baby this is not a serious problem. Is the baby active and feedong well? don't worry. He will pass in due course. Ene upto one week is acceptable. If you are bottle feeding that is a cause. Otherwise, some tests have to be done. You ask privately with all details. For the time being, put a dulcolax suppository in his anus and he will pass motion. Contact me privately.
