Please look for intestinal worms Do not give him any food supplement/chips/candy etc. Just give him a glass of milk twice in morning and evening. Give him Alfalfa Q - 10 drops once daily mix with little water for next 2 weeks and revert back.

As you describe it may be Febrile Convulsion, convulsion (which is also called as "Kheech" Mirky" or "Zatke ki bimari") after high grade fever. Febrile convulsion is common in children age 6 months to 6 yrs. If there is not loss of consciousness or other complication, no need do any further investigation. DILANTIN is anti-convulsion medication. It is not recommended to give long term anti-convulsion medication like DILANTIN (Phenytoin) for simple febrile convulsion. Advice to Consult Pediatric Neurophysician.

After every bout of loose motion, feed your child a few teaspoons of a drink he enjoys. Some good options include water, coconut water, buttermilk, lassi, barley water, lemonade or nimbu paani and lemonade with mint or nimbu pudina paani. If your baby is breastfeeding, continue to feed him. Breastmilk has fluids and nutrients that improve digestion.You may also want to buy an ORS or Oral Rehydration Solution pack from your local chemist. Give your baby a few sips every hour. This will help him stay hydrated. Make sure you prepare the ORS exactly how it is prescribed on the packet. If your baby is vomiting, wait for 15 to 30 minutes, and then give him a few teaspoons of water. Once that goes down well, give him clear liquids like coconut water or watery rice gruel.

My child aged 6 years is having retina eye problem. Everything is ok, but he can't read from certain distance. All tests have been done. But, even erg test also failed to diagnose exact problem. But it has been diagnosed as retina problem. Probably small retina. It has been suggested another test scanning after 6 months. Is there any remedy for retina problems.

Low tone of muscles may cause such delay in development. It is essential to know cause of hypotonia. If it is due to nutritional deficiency, it can be managed and child may have normal life but need early intervention. Even then it is advisable to consult pediatrician.

The only food that is allowed to be given to a child till her is 4 months completed, is milk. If there is not enough breast milk, you can give him other milks--formula or cow's milk or whole milk. But you cannot give him any other food. Of course, you should not starve him and you need to give him some supplement. You can try with formula or cows mild. Give him whichever suits him best.

Just see to it that your child develops milestone properly and also keep a note of things which he doesn't tolerate and try to avoid such situations and as he is ten months of age than you can start with smashed rice home made.
