Hello, babies born before 37 weeks of gestational age are called pre mature babies. They are, of course, smaller than full term babies, but many are born without their organs having had enough time to fully develop. Some of these babies show obvious disabilities. They need a considerable medical care to survive. Mature babies are born after the completion of 37 weeks of pregnancy. Thanks.

Low tone of muscles may cause such delay in development. It is essential to know cause of hypotonia. If it is due to nutritional deficiency, it can be managed and child may have normal life but need early intervention. Even then it is advisable to consult pediatrician.

Regarding online consultation there are certain points which all should know and follow. 1) 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 cannot help a discerning doctor a scientific advice. 2) your place and name and mail id and phone number should be in the question. 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 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. All these are said with intention to give a scientifically correct answer and talk as if in a regular consultation about which I am very keen to. 4) for personalised attention and follow up ask privately and it is better to make online payment if you are asked to by the doctor. It involves his time and dedication to give you expert advice after studying your problem. Ask personally in case of doubts about any medical matter.

Hello lybrate-user! as per your history it seems that baby has received bcg vaccination on left arm on deltoid region. It is normal to develop pustule after 4to 6 week which will burst and heal leaving scar mark behind which will remain for life time. If any swelling develops in left axilla (lymph node) or in neck gland swellling then inform your pediatrician.

My Daughter suffering from coughs and vomiting n she has fever as well kindly suggest us what we have to do now (Medicine available is crocin maxtra) thanks she is 3 n half year.

Please stop bottle feed and milk all together. Give food, proper adult one else let her stay hungry. Sup pixit 5ml twice a day for five day and then 5ml once a day for one month. Pilex ointment three times a day for one month to be applied at anus and insert the nozzle inside the anus and press the tube. This will relieve her but proper food will cure her esp vegitables and fruits. Honey, munnaka, saunf can also be added to the diet.

Hi your child is having worms. He should be given antiworm medication from doctor. No home medication works for this. You should take medication as early as possible. Take care.

Besides general risk of any surgical procedure this does not have any risk. Sexual function is nearly normal in almost all cases.

Your query is a very common concern paediatricians are confronted with. Unfortunately, there is no test which could tell whom with the child resemble more, the mother ot the father. At times, it is seen that some kids resemble family members other than parents, like grandparents.
