Hi, my daughter is 2. 5 yrs old. She was suffering from mild stomach infection, for which hey ped gave her of (7. 5 ml twice a day) for 6 days starting from fri. Since yesterday night, she is complaining from sore throat. She is not able to intake any solid without pain in the throat. Earlier her ped had prescribed droxyl for sore throat. My question is can I give her droxyl now when she is already taking oflaxin for stomach infection? please advise.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
It is not safe to use ofloxacin for longer eriond. It may also help the sore throat as an antibiotic. However it is not specific for throat infection. After giving oflox for two days, let me know the progress. I shall suggest better antibiotic. Anyway for the time being, for pain give meftal syrup 5 ml thrice. Reply with your city. It is necessary to know your place ( weather there) take care.

By constantly putting baby and putting the nipple in her mouth he will learn to. You also need to check if the nipple is retracted.

If mother milk is not enough for baby feeding then what amount of lactogen or nan pro milk should be given to baby?

MBBS, Diploma in Child Health (DCH)
Pediatrician, Aurangabad
If mother milk is not enough for baby feeding then what amount of lactogen or nan pro milk should be given to baby?
Most of the time the mother will have adequate milk for her baby Till the age of 6 to 7 months. But if the mother feels that she is not having proper milk you should actually keep the weight chart of your child in the child. If gaining proper weight per month then you should not worry but if the child is not gaining proper weight you should start with top milk in the form of lactogen 1 or 2 according to the age of the baby you can also start with Nan 1. Mix 1 spoon which is available with the Powder in the packet with 30 ml of boiled and clean water make the feed and give your baby as much as possible sometimes a bigger baby more than 3 months can take 100 to 150 ml at a time so that calculate that much amount and feed your baby with the top milk when the baby will be started with the feed baby herself is stop feeding this is a signal for the mother to stop feeding and you should not worry for simple things.

My relative son age is 5 yrs. Boy is suffering from hyperactivity. He won't listen what we says, he is completely out of our world. He won't sit at one place. Simply he shouts. While making sound he il close his eyes & ears with hand. Everything he got late from childhood like walking, talking. Etc. And he don't know how to eat with his hands some one should make him to eat daily. How to reduce it. How to recover him as a normal child. Please suggest me.

Dear Lynbrate user Before labelling him hyper active . What is the atmosphere at home does the parents too shout or any other family member do it. Has he been pampered during his learning stage it means he was fed by family members or maid.how is at school. Many things depend on the environment in the family. What is the status of his health may be he is anaemic and is irritable. Get his CBC done. Hope this helps.

I really wonder how the Dr. told that "Rotavirus vaccine" is not important. Its a very good vaccine. Even govt. Of India has included this vaccine in National Immunization Program. It's good for prevention against diarrhoea. We regularly give this vaccine. But 1 important note--- 1st dose should be given after 15 weeks of life (3½ month age. Now you should not give Rotavirus as your baby is older.

Give him as much as he wants. This is called demand feeding but don't forget to burp him after every feed. No, he will not have any digestive problems if you burp him after every feed.

A inguinal hernia is not a serious condition. It is caused by a weakness in the muscles of the groin area and bulging of the tissues through the weak area. This may cause intermittent discomfort. If it is very minor it may only cause very ocassional problems. The risk is if the tissues bulge through the weakness and then get stuck this may cause severe pain or intestinal obstruction. The treatment to avoid this scenario is an inguinal hernia repair done as a planned procedure. This is not a major operation and in many hospitals is carried out as a day case or out patient procedure. It can be done under general, spinal or local anesthesia and takes about 30 minutes. The recovery time is about 5 to 7 days depending on your current health. Driving would not be advised for 4 weeks. I hope this has helped you. If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact me. Regards,

Is Your Baby Crying Too Much - 6 Homeopathic Remedies You Can Try!

Is Your Baby Crying Too Much - 6 Homeopathic Remedies You Can Try!

Crying is often considered as a good sign for babies, especially when the baby is too small to talk about how he or she may be feeling. Crying is often an indicator that the baby is hungry or sleepy. But if your baby is crying a lot, it could also mean that he or she is in pain or distress. Blocked nasal passages, sudden shock, colic and indigestion problems are some of the most common problems that can cause frequent and constant crying. Homeopathy is a holistic approach that can help in treating persistent crying when it comes to babies. Read on to know more.

  1. Chamomilla: This medicine can be used when the child is whining relentlessly. It can also treat fretful behaviour, as well as irritability. Also, this medicine can be used when the child needs constant carrying around and petting. When the child is never still and suffering from earache or headache, this medicine can be used too.
  2. Cina: Screaming children and their discomfort can be treated with Cina. This medicine can also be used to treat symptoms like moaning and coughing along with anxious behaviour. Also, when children gasp for air and end up turning pale, this medicine can be prescribed. Further, the doctor may prescribe this medicine when the child is having nightmares and not getting enough sleep.
  3. Causticum: This medicine is ideal for children who are extremely sensitive and cry at the smallest instance. In such cases, the child will be cranky because of the threat of pain or idea of pain, rather than the actual pain. This child will usually cry persistently because of a low threshold of pain. In such cases, this medicine can help.
  4. Rheum: Impatience and vehemence can be treated with the help of this medicine. In many cases the child will be cranky throughout the night and toss all night as well. The child may even be cranky with his or her favourite items and toys. Unpleasantness is usually a part of a child’s behaviour in such cases. Rheum can help in tackling this problem with regular doses.
  5. Belladona: This medicine is helpful for children who begin to cry violently as if he or she is in severe pain. Teeth gritting and screams are common symptoms of children who will require this medicine. This is especially helpful when the child is crying without any apparent reason.
  6. Aconite: When the child cries constantly and becomes anxious, Aconite can be used to help soothe the child. This medicine can also help in cases where the child is scared of falling off to sleep and is anxious.

My son is 7 years old and he is weak and thin. He doesn't eat food properly. please suggest a good nutrients and medicine.

seven years old children are supposed to eat by themselves in separate dish.they should sit besides their parents and eat by them selves.but nowadays with two children ,mothers prepare the dish asking the choice to their children.this is reason for poor appetite..junk market food is another reason for poor development.otherwise whatever older people eat is diet for seven year old.just add 300 ml milk a day.pulses and paneer,curd as source of protein.If you stick to what I have advised you will start getting results in two weeks time

Make sure she is not having any systemic or chronic disease for her failure to thrive. You need to consult a pediatrician. Well as far as feeding is concerned please continue mothers milk along with home made mashed cereals acceptable to child. Have patience while feeding. Play with child while feeding.
