My son is having sweet allergy where has if he had any sweets, chocolates, or biscuits in 12hrs. he will get much cough. Thats why we are not giving any food that couse to cough. please tell me any suggestion to not coming of cough

MBBS
Pediatrician, Ernakulam
He is unlikely to have sweet alllergy,however too much of sweets,biscuits is not a great idea. Excess of junk would reduce appetite and results in poor uptake of home foods.Please concentrate on fruits and vegetables. To avoid cough,remove him from dusty environment,no exposure to smoke,paint,polluted areas. Please note that children who attend day care centres have a increased tendency to coughs and colds

My daughter has persistent cough sometimes please prescribe some antibiotic to cure it she is 4years old.

Pediatrician, Pune
The cause for her persistent cough needs to be identified, antibiotics alone are not going to help, get her evaluated by a pediatrician.

Appendicitis in Children

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Delhi
Appendicitis in Children

The appendix is a small, finger-shaped pouch attached to the large intestine in the right belly area. It is a vestigial organ as it has no specific role to play in humans, but the organ is still seen, though in a very small size compared to the earlier living beings in the evolutionary chain. Acutely inflamed appendix is the most common cause leading to it removal, often seen in the ages of 10 to 19.

Causes: The appendix gets infected by two main reasons - general infection in the abdomen that reaches the appendix or blockage of the appendix leading to inflammation and swelling within it. The appendix is a blind pouch, and there is a good chance for its blockage from food particles, lymphatic tissue, or even sometimes feces. Some of the potential risk factors for appendicitis include a diet low in fiber, high in sugar, gut flora, and family history.

Symptoms/Diagnosis: In adults, the appendicitis has very characteristic symptoms including acute pain in the right upper part of the belly associated with fever and vomiting. However, in children, the pain may not be as tell-tale a sign but is still quite diagnostic of appendicitis. However, presence of the following symptoms together is surely indicative of appendicitis.

  1. Right abdominal pain, especially rebound tenderness, where pressure placed in the right upper part of the belly and released leads to excruciating pain.
  2. Fever, nausea, and vomiting
  3. Abdominal fullness or bloating
  4. Elevated white blood count (as with most infections)

Additionally, the younger the child, the symptoms are not very clear, but ultrasound will confirm the diagnosis. The inflamed, enlarged appendix will be visible on the images and could be surrounded by free fluid. CT scan also can be considered if required to confirm the diagnosis.

Treatment: As noted above, children present with symptoms that do not pinpoint to appendicitis. Treatment usually takes two routes:

If diagnosed as appendicitis before rupture, then surgical removal is the best method to contain its symptoms. Other symptoms like fever and nausea and vomiting usually subside a couple of days after the surgery.
If the appendicitis goes unnoticed and ruptures, then the intestinal cavity can get infected, which is called peritonitis. Earlier, the preferred approach was to control the infection and then go for removal. However, lately, removing the appendix followed by antibiotics to control the infection is the preferred approach.
The prognosis and recovery from appendicitis is very good. Deaths have occurred only in very small infants, where they are not able to pinpoint the area and therefore it can go undiagnosed, leading to rupture and subsequent death.

Early identification is the key to proper identification, immediate treatment, and complete recovery from appendicitis.

My son is 3 days old. He was diagnosed with vsd with 9mm hole. The cardiologist said it will be closed as the child grows. If not, then there are medical procedures to help.

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
Nothing much to worry about, it will be closed by 4-5 yrs of age. You can repeat 2 decho after a year to see its progression and decide accordingly. If you find problem in between you can always see cardiologist.

My Grand Son who is 5 years now suffering from Autism for the last 1 year six months. He was doing good in the initial years but developed this problem. Checked medically and no problem as per reports. But his remembrance has come down apart from change in his behaviour. Pl suggest what is to be done?

Pediatrician, Muzaffarnagar
Change in behaviour in child age group is not abnormal. It changes year by year in this age group. For only this reason of change in behaviour, child may not be considered as suffering from Autism. It has many associated features also. It may just a matter of chance that he might be having interest in some other field instead of of learning according to your choice. I suggest to take another opinion about autism.

If mother milk is not enough for baby feeding then what amount of lactogen or nan pro milk should be given to baby?

MBBS, Diploma in Child Health (DCH)
Pediatrician, Aurangabad
If mother milk is not enough for baby feeding then what amount of lactogen or nan pro milk should be given to baby?
Most of the time the mother will have adequate milk for her baby Till the age of 6 to 7 months. But if the mother feels that she is not having proper milk you should actually keep the weight chart of your child in the child. If gaining proper weight per month then you should not worry but if the child is not gaining proper weight you should start with top milk in the form of lactogen 1 or 2 according to the age of the baby you can also start with Nan 1. Mix 1 spoon which is available with the Powder in the packet with 30 ml of boiled and clean water make the feed and give your baby as much as possible sometimes a bigger baby more than 3 months can take 100 to 150 ml at a time so that calculate that much amount and feed your baby with the top milk when the baby will be started with the feed baby herself is stop feeding this is a signal for the mother to stop feeding and you should not worry for simple things.

Shivering can be seen in any bacterial or viral infection. Give syp. Paracetomol for fever every 6 hourly. If it doesn't subsides even after 3 days blood test should be done.

Normally maximum brain growth occurs till the age of 2 years. Hence blood supply will be more to the head. This is the reason for the head to be warm in this age.

This finding by itself is suggesting umbilical for which no intervention is needed. This provisional advice provided by me stands subject to the actual examination of report/ image and is based entirely on inputs provided to me. It should be correlated with clinical findings.

Is par curable? my son (5year old) has mild asthma but allergic rhinites all the year. Doctors of allopathy said if it is not cured asthma will not go. They have given mometasone nasal spray and montec lc for one month. The problem is that after the course of montec lc is completed ar comes back despite the constant use of mometasone. What should I do? I have tried Ayurveda medicine (prescription medicine) without effect.

You need to continue medications as advised by your doctor and review on a monthly basis. Do not stop the medicines on your own else the symptoms would relapse. We generally titrate the medicines very slowly over a period of few months to keep the child asymptomatic.
