If clot (swelling) is painful on pressing, get it checked. If not, leave it as such. By passage of time it will resolve.

Aaj mai aapse tuberculosis ke bare mei bat krunga. Tuberculosis ek bahut khatarnak bimari hai joki hindustan mei bahut tez gati se badhti ja rahi hai. Agar hum duniya bhar ke aankade dekhen, takriban 1/3 population vo tuberculosis se effected hain.

Ek insan jo hai jisko tuberculosis hai vo lag bhag 10-15 logon ko 1 saal ke andar tuberculosis ki bimari de skta hai. Agar hindustan ke ankade dekhen to 1000 logon ki mrityu hoti hai tuberculosis se. Iska mtlb hai har 3 minute mei 2 vyaktiyon ki mrityu ho rahi hai. Ye bimari ek bacteria se hoti hai jiska naam mycobacterium tuberculosis hai. Ye ek insaan se dusre insaan mein transmit ho sakta hai. Tuberculosis ka case generally lungs mei hota hai.

Agar koi insaan khasta hai, chinkata hai, tez bolta hai, even agar gaata hai to uske thook se, bulgum se jo kitadun hote hain, vo dusre insan ke andar lungs ke through jakar infection kar sakte hain. Tuberculosis generally lungs ki bimari hoti hai. But ye bimari lungs ke alawa kisi bhi organs mei ho skti hai. Jaise ki hadiyon ki tuberculosis hui, heart ki tuberculosis hui, naak, kaan, galle ki tuberculosis hui ya kidney ki tuberculosis hui. Is tarha se koi bhi organ affect ho skta hai.

Agar hum tuberculosis ke signs aur symptoms dekhen vo hain fever, weight loss hona, bhukh na lagna, kamjori, thakavat, is tarha ke general symptoms hote hain. Baki jo signs or symptoms hote hain, vo TB kis jagha pe hai, uspe depend krta hai. Jaise ki insan ko agar fefde ka TB ho to insan ko khasi or bulgum ata hai. Kbhi kbhi bulgum mei khoon bhi aa skta hai. Insan ko chest mei pain ho skta hai. Joki bhut tez bhi ho skta hai kbhi kbhi. Aur saans fulne ki dikkat ho skti hai. Agar reed ki haddi ki ya koi aur haddi ki TB hai to hadiyon mei dard hoga or kamjoori mehsus hogi.

Tuberculosis ko diagnose karna bahut kathin kaam nahi hai. Tuberculosis agar lungs ki hai to use hum x-ray krte hain or bulgum ki janch krte hain. Agar tuberculosis bones ki suspect kar rhen hain ya pait ki ya aanton ki suspect kar rhen hain to uske liye specialised test hote hain jaise ultrasound, CT scan. Joki visheshagya aapko prescribe krte hain. Ek bhut hi common question pucha jata hai ke mantoux test kya hota hai. Mantoux test ek skin test hai joki hume ye btata hai ki kisi insan ko tuberculosis infection hai ya nhi hai. To agar humne ye test karaya or agar vo positive ata hai , to iska matlab ye hai ki hamare andar tuberculosis infection hai. Iska matlab ye nahi hai ki humein tuberculosis ki bimari hai.

BCG vaccination paida hote waqt ek navjaat shishu ko diya jata hai. Ye jo vaccination hai ye tuberculosis ke infection ko prevent krta hai. Aur bimari ko bahut tez hone se bachata hai. Lekin hume ye dhyan rkhna chaiye ki BCG vaccination hone ke baad bhi hume tuberculosis ki bimari ho skti hai. Ab agar humein tuberculosis ki bimari ka pta lag gya hai ki usme infection hai ya disease hai to hum ek vishagya se consult kren aur apna ilaj shuru kren. Generally TB ka ilaj 6-12 mahine ka hota hai. Aur iske liye prescribed dawaiyan hain joki ek regular routine ke hisab se di jati hai. Tuberculosis ki dawaiyan jo hain, ek chiz dhyan rkhen ki hume regularly khani hai. Tuberculosis ki dawayi hum kbhi skip nhi kar skte.

Tuberculosis ki dawaiyan kayi saari hoti hai,  to isliye starting mein kuch side effects ho skte hain or un side effects ke bare hume pta hona chaiye kyuki hum apne vishagye se jankari le skte hain. Kuch blood test bhi regular basis pe required hote hain. Agar hum ilaj thik se nhi krte hain ya kisi vajha se chuth jata hai, dhyan rkhiye ye bhut TB ka kharatnak rup hota hai MDR bolte hain ya multi-drug registered tuberculosis joki aaj kal bahut preshani ka vishye hai. Iss bimari ka ilaj krna bahut mushkil hai or dawaiyan bahut mehangi hain. Aur koi bhi unko afford nhi kar skta. Isliye dhyan rkhiye jaisa hamara vishashgya ilaaj btaye vaise hume krna hai or dawaiyan kbhi bhi chorni nhi hai. Dhanywad!

Hello, It's very important to keep repeating the same things again and again to a child if you want him to remember or to make a habit for him! There are few food items which helps you in boosting up your memory power, increases focus & concentration, so try to take more of these: 1. Choline: Good sources of choline include liver, milk, eggs and peanuts. 2. Vitamin B: B vitamins are not synthesized in the body, and thus need to be obtained from food. B-complex vitamins are water-soluble vitamins, which means that they are not stored within the body. In consequence, the B vitamins need ongoing replenishment. Vitamin B1 (thiamine) rich sources include unrefined grain products, ready-to-eat cereals, meat (especially pork), dairy products, peanuts, legumes, fruits and eggs. Foods that contain high concentrations of vitamin B3 (niacin) in the free form include beans and organ meat, as well as enriched grain and cereal products. While niacin is present in corn and other grains, the bioavailability of the nutrient is much less than it is in protein-rich sources. The role of vitamin B9 (folic acid) during pregnancy is vital to normal development of the nervous system in the fetus. Good sources of folate include liver, ready-to-eat breakfast cereals, beans, asparagus, spinach, broccoli, and orange juice. Animal protein products are a good source of vitamin B12 (cobalamine), particularly organ meats such as kidney or liver. Other good sources are fish, eggs, and dairy products. 3. Vitamin A: The foods highest in Vitamin A are any pigmented fruits and vegetables and leafy green vegetables. 4. Zinc: Zinc is a very important part of the brain as well; many regions of the brain, such as the cerebellum, and hippocampus have neurons that contain this nutrient. Zinc is needed to maintain normal Vitamin A levels in blood plasma. Sources of zinc are meats, certain seafood, whole grains, baked beans, oatmeal, milk (low-fat), cashewnut, almonds, kidney-beans, cheese, peas, spinach, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, flaxseeds. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicine for increasing memory - Anacardium 200/ once daily. Management: -Let him play with his peer group outdoor games daily. Any kind of physical activity improves the blood circulation of the whole body. -Get him enough sleep and rest. On average, a child needs between 7.5 and 9 hours of sleep each night and 1&1/2 to 2 hours of sleep during daytime. When a child hasn't got proper rest, it affects your brain’s ability to do this, and your memory suffers. -laughter can improve short-term memory in both kids as well as adults. -Cutting down on your use of technology (i. E. Sitting in front of your computer, phone, or tablet) for even 30 minutes can improve your brain health and help to think more deeply.

My 15 months old baby girl refuses all time to eat her meal. I am depressed for her intake. I just need an advice how to make her eat and see her healthy.

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
Usually children eat appreciate to their requirements but not up to the expectations of parents. If weight is appropriate for age, nothing needs to be done. In that case, stop worrying and start enjoying meals with children. They will learn how to eat by imitating you. You eat, whatever you feel your daughter should eat, with her.

Hello, my son is about to reach 2.5 old and still does not speak much. Though he listens and understands all our instructions & talks but does not feel compelled much to repeat us. He says only bare minimum required words to get his work done. He is quite active in playing with toys and ball games, but much behind than his age group children when it comes to articulate his expressions. Many a times he want to say a full statement but end up saying so many jibberish words, looks like he want to say so much things but not able to do so due to some speech problem. Could you please guide me on should we show him to a speech therapist or a psychiatrist? Are these signs of speech problems? Thanks in advance.

As you have narrated that your son understand instruction. Talk, get his work done in minimum (relevant) words, active and play games. Only your problem is that he does not articulate or communicate in flow and is not able to express in one go. These are all normal activity at this age. He listen more and speak less but retain every conversation in his mind. I do not consider him as abnormal. It is better 1st to consult psychiatrist than speech therapist.
