Skin colour changes with blood perfusion of skin. So wait and watchbefore true colour comes. Don't use chemical cream and soap.

Watering of eye may be due to blocked eye canal opening in nose n difficulty in opening of eye may be due to infection. Use Antibiotic eye drops 3-4 hourly for infection but consult eye specialist for eye blocked too.

My daughter age 3 year do not want to eat anything. We are mainly rice eaters. She is greedy for junk foods but do not want to eat the main course. Now a days if we force to take food she vomits after taking a little food. Please give me a solution of this problem. She is getting thiner and thiner day by day.

MD Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Hyderabad
Once children get habituated to junk food, its difficult to manage, parents need to deal such situation with love. Not forcefully feed her, just give her options or awards for eating normal food or diet instead of junk food. Ask her what she wants to eat, and try to prepare it at home.

If your baby is not suffering from any disease then here are some tips. Most important is STOP FORCED FEEDING. Basic principal is six meals a day, three large and three small, feed size is three to four fist size, allow to finish in twenty minutes eating time, if not finished then withdraw the left over, do nothing in between the meals, love your baby a lot and express it too but food only during feeding time.The food should be rich in fats and protins example eggs, kheer, khidi with ghee, stuffed paratha, halwa, upma, shakes, grind nuts etc.FOOD SHOULD BE PLEASURE NOT PUNISHMENT.

बच्चे का वजन पहले हफ्ते मे कम होता है और अगर दूध ठीक मिल रहा है तो अगले हफ्ते तक जन्म के वजन के बराबर हो जाता है।दूध पिलाते हुए पोटी कर दे तो पूरा दूध पिलाने के बाद ही साफ करे। यदि वजन करीब 30 gm प्रति दिन बढ रहा तो ठीक है। अपना दूध पिलाते हुए बच्चा comfortable हो। यदि आराम न हो तो अन्यथा शिशु विशेषज्ञ से परामर्श करे।

Normal dose is .5 ml. Your baby will get subsequent doses. And a booster later. As of now spilage o one drop does not make a difference but you can get antibody titres checked after the booster dose is given i.e at 2 years of age. Till then nothing to worry.

Milk teeth can be broken upto 8-9 yrs. If delayed then you must consult with a dentist. For dull hair use olive oil. Apply natural henna powder dipped in liquor of tea overnight, next day add whole egg, curd,10 ml coconut oil, few drops of lemon juice, apply it on scalp after drying rinse thoroughly, do not use shampoo on that day.

Root Canal


I’m Dr Mehul Chawla, practising, in Gurgaon. I’m practising dentistry since 2011. Since inception, I was always into two things, first was root canal treatments and second is dental implants. Both these fields are closer to each other. Root canals help to save the tooth the implants help to replace the tooth that is spoilt. So let me just tell you briefly about root canal treatments. So root canals, a root canal is a procedure of aeronautic and causative department of dentistry. So it is a procedure to save a tooth for a long time that has been decayed due to the past neglect of the person.

In root canals, they clean the canals of the tooth with an instrument so that to make sure there is no microorganism remaining. Finally, the root of the canal is filled with dental filling material. So let's come to implant now. See implants are not very recent procedures. They are in the market for the past 30 years now but these days they are very famous in India now because the implant cost has drastically decreased.

Implants is basically a procedure to replace one or number of teeth with better than before fixed prosthesis. Also, the implants are more promising replacement options than others because it gives a success rate of more than 98%. So replacement of one tooth to the number of teeth is actually possible with the help of dental implants.

So thanks for watching me. If you wish to see me again or wish to know more about dentistry, just put on the Lybrate. You can email me, you can call me. You can go online and do the video chatting with me.

I will be very happy to share my knowledge with you.

Thanks.

Dear lybrate-user, procrastination is a common problem, but if not dealt with soon enough, can result in serious consequences in the future. First thing you should know is that you are not able to concentrate, not because your procrastinate, but because you procrastinate, and thus you are not able to concentrate. Procrastination, fidgeting and all sbuch distractive phenomena arise when either your brain is anxious, or your brain is unable to work out a way from a problem you are facing or just because you might not have anything to do. For instance let us say your exams just got over and you don't do any work for a long time, making the recently finished exams a reason for not working. Now what happens is your brain gets used to this routine of" no work" for a long time. And thus, when you start working again, you suddenly realise you had to do so much more. Because your brain starts picking up the fragments of works which were left undone. And this happens to a lot of people. There are multitudinous ways you can control procrastination. But by far the best solution is" meditation" and it is exactly this phenomenon which we intend to control by meditating. And meditation has many forms. You don't have to sit on the floor for hours in" dhayn mudras" meditation is the art of learning how to focus. You can start with anything you like (reading, music. Start with 15 min. Every day. And then, increase it to 30 min. And then an hour or two. You might not have observed but people don't generally procrastinate while doing something they love. Hope this will help you. With best wishes.
