If my child has a fever, can I give them paracetamol and ibuprofen at the same time?

If my child has a fever, can I give them paracetamol and ibuprofen at the same time?
Do not give 2 medicines at same time which are meant for same purpose. Give him only one medicine. ## if you need to give more medicine you can give:- ferrum phosphoricum 6x (4 tablets tds). Try to make a gap of half an hr with anothet medicine. Hope this advice will be sufficient for you.

There are no written rules. Yes advisable to give for 2 times if possible and quantity between 100 to 200 ml. Milk products are must to be given. So if not milk you can use combination of products like yoghurt. Butter milk. Cheese etc etc. Have happy parenting.

My daughter vitamin d was 9. Then she took 5 calcicoral pouches regularly and then she took 4 pouches once a week for month. After that she tested her vitmin d she had 25. 9. And now dr. Recommended architol injection 6 lkh unit. So it is safe or I continue with calcicoral. Last year also she had taken pouches but not completed course. Her weight is 25. 5and height is 133 cm.

General Physician,
Vitamin d deficiency historically has been defined as a blood level of 25hydroxyvitamind below 25nmol/l. There is scientific debate about the optimal vitamin d blood level. Current practice in the uk, as recommended by the british paediatric and adolescent bone group, is to continue to use that as the defined level of deficiency, and to define? insufficiency? as between 25 and 50nmol/l. Some laboratories and authorities use higher levels but this current practice is based on robust evidence of benefits to bone health when levels are more than 50nmol/l. Vitamin d deficiency can cause seizures and cardiomyopathy in infants, rickets and poor growth in children and muscle weakness at any age. Need to discuss more details, you are free to ask privately in ask privately option with, birth and development history and complaints which made you test for d levels. Mention your name and mail id with phone no. I am thinking of writing an article on vitamin d deficiency among other deficiency states and diseases. You can read them in health tips there is already an article in diseases category by me.

How to Manage if Your Child Is Suffering From Asthma

How to Manage if Your Child Is Suffering From Asthma

Asthma is a condition that can flare up anytime; be it at your child's soccer practice or during the middle of the night. Whenever the condition sets in, it leads to your child struggling for breath. For a parent to witness this situation can be hard; but you should know the techniques to keep the situation under control.

Here are a few tips on how to manage the situation:

1. Find out the triggers in your home: Asthma is triggered due to substances that your child may be allergic to. Examples are cigarette smoke, fur of pets and dust. If possible, keep your child away from the known triggers so that the condition does not flare up again.

2. Keep records of the following: It is good to have an action plan ready for your child when the bouts of asthma strike. When you visit the doctor to discuss about your child's condition then make sure that you have these records at hand.

  • The triggers that caused the bout of asthma
  • How many times did your child have wheezing episodes?
  • The number of times your child has been admitted for the same reason
  • The medications that your child is currently taking, dosage and/or whether they have been changed
  • How often does he/she need medications if he/she has acute symptoms?

3. Knowledge of the test your child may require: Asthma control test is a type of test that allows parents and children to grade asthma symptoms without a doctor. A pulmonary function test is used to detect the capacity of the lungs and flow of air.

4. See how your child responds to the treatments: You should consider changing the treatments for your child if he/she has recurrent symptoms of asthma attack and require frequent visits to the Emergency Room even after taking medications for an extended duration.

5. Long term treatment plans require patience: Any asthma treatment plan requires patience as they might not immediately cure symptoms.

If child on exclusive breastfeeding and is playful, passing clear urine frequently, then perhaps nothing needs to be done. However if is not so, then clinical examination by a pediatrician is necessary to evaluate the dehydration and plan further treatment.

Must to be watchful as these hard pieces can be stacked in lower esophagus. But difficult to say at this point. Give lot of fibers containing food so that it can easily come out.

I suggest to continue breastfeeding gradually increasing interval but decreasing duration of feeding. Though it is advisable to continue breastfeeding up to the age of 2 years then withdraw gradually.

We have 2 kids of ages 2.4 years (son) & 2 months (daughter) respectively. While my wife was pregnant, we had worked with our son to teach a fair positive impression about his upcoming sibling & he had also responded quite well. Since the pregnancy, I had taken primary responsibilities to take care of him with fair support & company from my parents, while my wife also tried to do as much as she could. Also, around the age of 1.6 yrs, we worked with him to get rid of the habit of breastfeed by educating him that he is now grown up & he should let his sibling to take that, which had also worked pretty well. After my wife has come back after delivery with our daughter, we found he likes his sister quite well & loves to play with her too. However, we also started noticing a few changes in his behavior as follows, which I would like to share to make sure we are not ignoring any major problem. 1) We heard him saying 4-5 times in past one month that feeding is for sister & not for him, after which he sadly lies down on the bed. 2) He is quite possessive about his grandfather & does not allow him to take his sister at all. Even when I try to spend time with her, he does not take it in the right spirit. 3) Now he is reluctant to sleep with us & prefers to sleep with the grandparents, however, if I sleep with him separately, while the mother sleeps with the daughter, apparently it works better for him. What we are afraid is if he continues to sleep with grandparents, he might feel himself deprived of the company of his parents during sleeping. 4) He looks a little less focused in his daily study (with me), although he has the ability to pick up things really fast. Considering all these aspects, do you think I should continue to sleep with my son separately while the mother sleeps with the daughter to make things peaceful? Please advise in terms of overall well being of the entire family.

General Physician,
I am very impressed by the way you have handled everything and he has sibling rivalry even without his conscious mind knowing it. The 2 month old daughter needs utmost support now and all you can do is spend as much time with him as possible and feed the newborn when his attention is away and you can allow him to sleep with ou while taking care to feed the baby properly and console him and make him involved in baby care like changing napkins etc.. You can talk in detail with me via the site

To detect worms get his stool tested. Intestinal worms, round worms, tapeworms and toxacara worms can all cause a loss of appetite, nausea, tiredness, a painful or even distended tummy, fever, coughing, urticaria, and in the case the threadworm, an uncomfortable itch at night around the anus and/or the vulva. Alnendazole can be repeated six monthly, dose 2ml at bed time for kids above 2yrs after fat free meal.

Common Skin Problems in Newborns

Toxic Erythema

Although the name sounds scary, this is a self-limiting problem requiring no long term medical attention. This usually appears as red blotches with a central white spot. It can occur anywhere and often involves the entire body. 

The most important factor to keep in mind is the baby?s general health. If the baby has no fever, stays alert and active, responds to the mother, feeds normally, and wets and soils the nappy as usual, then there is no need to be alarmed. However, if the baby stops feeding, stops crying or looks groggy all the time, then he or she needs to be assessed by a child specialist.
