Hello sir/maa'm I want to ask you that my son is suffering from cough and cold and I give him livolin syrup from 4 days but till now he is not well. And he is suffers from cough and cold after every 15 days. Please give me some permanant solution.

Pediatrician, Pune
Livolin may be given for relieving the spasm in the lungs, caused by dust, smoke allergens, prevention is better than cure, give him a smoke, dust free environment, avoid fur toys, avoid junk food, give plenty of liquids, water, fruits, keep him active outdoors, keep him happy, and see the difference, mean while continue with medications in consultation with your doctor.

Hi lybrate-user you must be giving formula feed to the baby. If yes please stop that and give breast milk with some cereal diet like khichdi etc. The problem will be solved.

Can we use shampoo for a 3 yrs old child if yes then which brand shampoo can we use.

General Physician,
No it is safe to avoid. Regarding online consultation there are certain points which all should know and follow the description of the diseases should be complete in all respects, including any tests done and any medicines already taking. Just saying I have diabetes since 10 years and taking metformin or I have thyroid disease, cannot help a discerning doctor give a scientific advice. 2) it is necessary at times to know where you stay to give a good advice. (for example if there the climate is warm or cold and many other factors) 3) it is necessary to keep in regular touch in case of new-born babies and for some diseases like diabetes and hypertension. So make it a point to be in touch by asking private questions. And repeat the essential point of the previous question to give a continuing answer.

Babies should triple their birthweight by first birthday. If your baby is not gaining weight properly since birth on adequate breast feed get her evaluated by pediatrician to rule out causes other than nutrition deficiency. If she gained good weight till exclusive breastfeeding take dietary advice.

Dear Doctor, Our son 06months old has not taken OPV 1 Hep-B 3 dose on completion of 06months. But when we had the vaccination after 3.5months from his birth, the nurse said that the 06th Month vaccination as stated above is also covered on that time. Hence we do not need to take the vaccination on completion of 06 months. Kindly advise should I take this month's due vaccination for our son. Many thanks

I had my normal delivery using tools. And My newborn baby had its jaundice test when she was 5 days old and the bilirubin levels were high, so she was in phototherapy for 4 days. And as the doctor said it came to normal level, we was discharged. But now as she is 15 days old. I could still see her eyes are pale Yellow sometimes. Some said it is normal and will fade as she grows. But then am panicked. Is it normal? What should be concerned?

I want to know about krill oil. Can I give my daughter krill oil as she is adhd and how can it help.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Krill oil is oil from a tiny, shrimp-like animal. Baleen whales, mantas, and whale sharks eat primarily krill. In norwegian, the word" krill" means" whale food" people extract the oil from krill, place it in capsules, and use it for medicine. Some brand name krill oil products indicate that they use antarctic krill. This usually refers to the species of krill called euphausia superba. Krill oil is used for heart disease, high levels of certain blood fats (triglycerides), high cholesterol, high blood pressure, stroke, cancer, osteoarthritis, depression, premenstrual syndrome (pms), and painful menstrual periods. How does it work? krill oil contains fatty acids similar to fish oil. These fats are thought to be beneficial fats that decrease swelling, lower cholesterol, and make blood platelets less sticky. When blood platelets are less sticky they are less likely to form clots. High cholesterol. Developing research shows that taking 1-1. 5 grams of a specific krill oil product (neptune krill oil, neptune technologies & bioresources, inc) daily reduces total cholesterol and? bad? low-density lipoprotein (ldl) cholesterol, and increases? good? high-density lipoprotein (hdl) cholesterol in patients with high cholesterol. Higher doses of 2-3 grams daily also appear to significantly reduce levels of triglyceride, another type of blood fat. Osteoarthritis. Early research shows that taking 300 mg of a specific krill oil product daily reduces pain and stiffness in people with osteoarthritis. Premenstrual syndrome (pms). Early research shows that taking a specific krill oil product might reduce pms symptoms. Rheumatoid arthritis. Early research shows that taking 300 mg of a specific krill oil product daily reduces pain and stiffness in people with rheumatoid arthritis. High blood pressure. Stroke. Cancer. Depression. Other conditions. More evidence is needed to rate the effectiveness of krill oil for these uses. Krill oil is possibly safe for most adults when used appropriately for a short amount of time (up to three months). Research on krill oil has not adequately evaluated its safety or possible side effects. However, it is likely that krill oil can cause some side effects similar to fish oil such as bad breath, heartburn, fishy taste, upset stomach, nausea, and loose stools. Special precautions & warnings: pregnancy and breast-feeding: not enough is known about the use of krill oil during pregnancy and breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use. Seafood allergy: some people who are allergic to seafood might also be allergic to krill oil supplements. There is no reliable information showing how likely people with seafood allergy are to have an allergic reaction to krill oil; however, until more is known, avoid using krill oil or use it cautiously if you have a seafood allergy. Surgery: because krill oil can slow blood clotting, there is concern that it might increase the risk of bleeding during and after surgery. Stop using krill oil at least 2 weeks before a scheduled surgery. The specific utility in adhd is not certain. Ask privately www.lybrate.com/drsajeev

Best option would be to visit nearest patanjali chikitsalay for advice. The. Medicines etc they prescribe are free from harmful side effects as compared to allopathic medicine. Plus, they can suggest pranayama that naturally boosts mental and physical health. That should be the best start for your child. Also, watch and practice as shown on astha channel daily 5-7: 30 am and you will see so many small children doing what is being taught on way to good health.

Vaccines given in Govt sector (where I work) are essential to prevent major illnesses seen in children like polio, diphtheria, measles, tetanus, and rubella and other vaccines are called optional to prevent not so dangerous diseases. They are costly but can be given to protect from typhoid, diarrhoea, typhoid. Even if not given, you need not worry. If you can afford you give them as well.

Please let me know if I have to take any extra precautions in order to make his future life to safer side.

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
Follow up with Paediatric neuro physician to know if intervention is needed. Probably you may not need anything as so far growth and development is normal. It (small size head) sometimes occurs in families with normal development.

13years and weight 70kg. You need to become his role model and help him in a strict diet control, exercises and yoga if possible. Diet wise cut down his high calorie diet intake for example highly fried food items, bakery items, packed food items, breads, chocolates, icecreams. Encourage him to increase salads, soups, fruits, buttermilk, sprouts, vegetable juices in his diet. Tell him to take small meals at small intervals. Do not remain hungry for long duration this will make him hungry and he will eat more. Drink lots of water. Take him for cycling, skipping, jogging, daily morning and evening walks and see you will definitely get results in losing weight and get back to me after a month.
