At 6 months of age , you need to start the baby on weaning diet , if you have not already started and then gradually build up on the diet

I have twin - daughter & son. After birth, around 27 days old, they are given bath with til oil, johnson soap and powder after bath. But, it has been seen that they are looking dark in skin colour day by day. What will we do to regain their skin colour to fair? whether we change to coconut oil? will they regain skin fair colour?

We live in a desert with frequent sand storms and dusty conditions. My 4.25 years old daughter gets severe coughs 2-3 times every year in winters. The coughing get so intense that she can't sleep we have to give her anti allergic for 3-4 weeks and antibiotics in case the cough gets infected. Summers are not as bad for her. How to boost her immunity, what precautions should we take, any changes in the diet etc. Kindly advise.

Firstly you need to avoid contact with dust which is quite difficult. You can use vaccuum cleaners so that you can keep your house free of dust as much as possible. Teach her yogas like praanaayam which will help in increasing lung capacity and eventually immunity. As per diet is concerned avoid excessive chocolates, coloured food items, cold drinks, deep fried foods, packed food items. Give her more of soups, salads, whole grains in any form.

My son got an episode of febrile seizure (30sec to 1 min duration) at 18 months. Later, the doctor advised for immediate fever medication and tepid sponging whenever he develops fever. Now, at 21 months, we took him to the hospital because of fever again (no seizure), doctor adviced to give him frisium also whenever he develops fever. Frisium 5m bad as divided doses. I want to know if there are any side effects for frisium and will it effect the extremely active nature of my son.(read online). Also, do febrile seizures cause any permanent problem and will he become more prone to epilepsy later in life? kindly help!

A febrile seizure, or febrile convulsion, is an epileptic fit with a high body temperature. There is no serious underlying health issue. Occur 6 months and 5 years. These seizures are very short lasting. Baby is normal after that completely. You are doing well in tepid sponging, also give paracetamol 15mg/kg. Diazepam pediatric suppository may be used at the onset of convulsions, and seizure can be controlled using diazepam iv. Many physicians are also using frisium as a precautionary measure and to alleviate parental anxiety! simple febrile seizures donot need investigations. I agree with Dr. Manu sharma that it is a common problem and settles down after 5 years.

Why small kids between 5 to 13 use to bleed unnecessary from nose when play or ran. What is the cause and what is the diagnose for the same?

MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician
Ask Free Question
Usually it is due to minor crack in the delicate inner skin of nose mostly due to nose picking by children. It can occur frequently during cold due to itching inside the nose. When there is bleed from nose. Pinch the nose for 5 minutes and let the child breath from mouth. Bleeding will stop. If not, continue pinching the nose and mouth breathing and reach to a doctor or a clinic which attends emergency calls.

This is a problem raised very late as weaning starts at the age of 5 months when liquid ate started then slowly semisolids are introduced but from history it appears that you are just in phase 1 that only liquids she is taking you need to start slowly semisolids and then solids you need to start it ok.

Crocin or ibuprofen plus suspension less than 5 ml at a time may reduce symptoms of pain and fever to some extent and temporarily. Problem looks like some infection connected with throat with lymphnode child may require appropriate antibiotics on advise of a doctor on direct examination and proper diagnosis.

The best way to deal with allergies is to avoid the allergens. Any episode like the present one can be dealt with cetirizine or other antiallergic drugs. Warm regards.

Umbilical cord separates at 1 week of age. It is quite normal to notice some discharge for 1-2 days after this. It will dry and stop with normal cleansing. You can wipe with warm water and clean cloth. If it persists after 2 days, it might indicate umbilical granuloma which is scar tissue. Antibiotic powder and ointment is not necessary.

If symptoms are sneezing, running nose, blocked nose 1. Take proper rest/ lot of fluids 2. Take proper home made diet. 3. Steam inhalation carefully by steam inhaler twice a day for 2-3 days frequent/ continuous cough cold may be because of many reasons like: 1. Any ent problem like dns polyp sinusitis 2. Low immunity 3. Allergic condition so you need to consult ENT doctor for proper examination and further management.
