Just one off loose stools doesn't indicate much. If the baby is otherwise well, continue dexolac. Try expressed brest feeding as well so you can add goodness of it as well.

MBBS, MD - Dermatology

First confirm the diagnosis of scabies as paedatric scabies has different picture than adults. Someone in your house must be having scabies for this transmission to happen. At one month of age, the only approved drug is colloidal sulphur (8% to 10%) in white vaseline to be applied for 3 continuous days with 12 hours gap. Nothing else is needed.

What is the life span for a baby of 1 year suffering from leukodystrophy, along with other 18q syndrome anomalies?

What is the life span for a baby of 1 year suffering from leukodystrophy, along with other 18q syndrome anomalies?
Leukodystrophy is not a single condition, but refers to a group of conditions that mainly affect the white (? leuko?) matter of the brain and the spinal cord. The primary leukodystrophies affect myelin production or breakdown. Myelin is the substance that surrounds and insulates the nerve fibres in the nervous system. When myelin is damaged, the underlying nerve tissue cannot operate in the regular way. Leukodystrophies are usually progressive conditions, which means they get worse over time. They cause loss of normal brain functions. Life expectancy depends on the type of leukodystrophy. Treatment for leukodystrophy currently, leukodystrophies cannot be cured. Stem cell therapy and bone marrow transplantation have each been tried in some cases. However, the benefits depend on the timing, age of onset and severity of symptoms. Therapies such as gene therapy and enzyme replacement therapy are under investigation. Treatment is mainly supportive and may include: physical therapy occupational therapy psychological counselling family counselling (including genetic counselling) medications (for example, medications for seizures. Things to remember leukodystrophy refers to a group of inherited disorders that affect the white matter of the brain. It causes loss of normal brain functions. Onset of symptoms is variable. There is no cure, but supportive treatment can help manage some of the symptoms. Most children with leukodystrophy will have significant problems with walking, talking, and activities of daily living. Some children with leukodystrophy will have a progressive downhill course in their abilities and will have a shortened life span. We encourage you to discuss your child's prognosis with your provider. Because children with leukodystrophy usually have significant medical problems, the impact on the family will be significant. A support group (see below) may be extremely helpful for you and your family. No one can predict the life span. Please ask personally for more doubts.

Two years old baby girl going through the process of teething problems. Now having motions and vomiting for last 3-4 days. Motions 2 or 3 in a day. Motions are not very loose but they have very bad smell. What to do?

Teething usually leads to irritation in the gums as a result all the children place different objects in their mouth this leads to infection and later diarrhoea. The main treatment of prevention method that you can apply is keep the hands of child clean keep the surface clean keep toys clean and all the people who are holding or touching the baby their hands should be clean. As as she is having only motions 2 to 3 times per day and vomiting better to consult a pediatrician for the same. You will need only antiemetics ORS and Zinc for the treatment. Since there is no fever and blood in stool antibiotics may not be required .the final diagnosis will be made by a doctor after detailed history and examination.

Ayurvedic Herbs That Are Really Good For Children!

Ayurvedic Herbs That Are Really Good For Children!

 There are several lovely and gentle herbs that can help children in different ways as they quickly respond to the effects of the herbs. These herbs can be used not just for improving the conditions of an ailing child but also teaches them the wonderful benefits of Mother Nature. If a parent is willing to use some herbs for the children, then it is imperative to know which herbs are best suited for the individual kids.

It is very important to do your homework well before choosing the herbs to administer on kids. Herbs have a long history of helping children and their families to be healthy and steer clear from common ailments. But it is crucial to note here that children tend to be more sensitive than the adults and they respond much quicker to the mild herbs.

A few of the herbs for your child suggested by Ayurveda:

  • Nourishing plants: There are some plants which act as a nutritive potion for the child and the herbal resistance proffered by these nourishing herbs comes from the high amounts of minerals, vitamins and different types of phytochemicals which are effortlessly absorbed by the children. Some of these herbs include nettle, oat straw, raspberry, dandelion, seaweeds, violets, marshmallow, rose hips, and alfalfa. These herbs can be used for making soups, salads, and casseroles. They may also be used in making refreshing teas and ice pops. Yet, one should remember that not all herbs will be suitable for the child. A few may not suit the child while others may work wonders for him/her. So, it is important to consult with an Ayurvedic expert before administering herbs.
  • Gentle nervines: Nervines are a class of herbs which helps in nourishing and calming the nervous system and they are wonderful to soothe the central nervous system. It is great for those children who suffer from the uncontrollable amount of anxiety, stress, and nervousness. These herbs are great for alleviating the tiredness that kids face after a hard day’s toil. Herbs like chamomile, lemon balm, rose petals, spearmint, lavender, and catnip are regarded as nervines and they are great for treating occasional insomnia and body pains. It is a good practice to use these herbs on a regular basis in order to experience a calming comfort.
  • Herbs also help in treating illness: It goes without saying that it is a great thing to use natural remedies for helping a child feel better. There are some herbs which can aid in alleviating signs and symptoms of a runny nose, sore throats, tummy aches and coughing. Some of the best herbs that can be used for this purpose include violet and pansy, elderflower and berry, anise seeds, cinnamon, garlic, thyme, and marshmallow. Certain nerviness is also known to provide beneficial effects for an ailing child.

Thus, herbs are a natural way of prevention and cure of many conditions in children, however, it is important to know how these herbs need to be administered. 

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

My child 1.5yrs is suffering from high fever 101, fever fades after crocin is given but again the temperature rises. Please suggest.

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
Continue giving crocin 6-8 hourly for 2-3 days. It is symptomatic medicine and will only work for 5-6 hours after each dose. Specific therapy requires more information. How long fever is there? what are other symptoms so that focus for infection can be thought of? most cases without focus fever comes down in 2-3 days time and is likely to be viral s in most cases. Post detail history for further evaluation.

I am looking for a good dentist. My son who is 3.5 years old, has carries in front teeth. Is that curable?

I am looking for a good dentist.  My son who is 3.5 years old,  has carries in front teeth. Is that curable?
Certainly curable. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning and artificial enamel filling or root canal treatment. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and a thorough dental check-up. Limit sugary food or milk after dinner to avoid tooth decay. Brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush. Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean the tongue with a tongue cleaner.

Bed Wetting: What You Need To Know?

DNB (Pediatrics)

Bed Wetting: What You Need To Know?

Bedwetting or nocturnal enuresis, refers to the unintentional passage of urine during sleep. Enuresis is the medical term for wetting, whether in the clothing during the day or in bed at night. Another name for enuresis is urinary incontinence. For infants and young children, urination is involuntary. Wetting is normal for them. Most children achieve some degree of bladder control by 4 years of age. Daytime control is usually achieved first, while nighttime control comes later.

The age at which bladder control is expected varies considerably. Some parents expect dryness at a very early age, while others not until much later. Such a time line may reflect the culture and attitudes of the parents and caregivers.

Factors that affect the age at which wetting is considered a problem include the following:

  • The child's gender: bedwetting is more common in boys.
  • The child's development and maturity
  • The child's overall physical and emotional health. Chronic illness and/or emotional and physical abuse may predispose to bedwetting.

Causes
No one knows for sure what causes bed-wetting, but various factors may play a role:

  • A small bladder: your child's bladder may not be developed enough to hold urine produced during the night.
  • Inability to recognize a full bladder: if the nerves that control the bladder are slow to mature, a full bladder may not wake your child, especially if your child is a deep sleeper.
  • A hormone imbalance: during childhood, some kids don't produce enough anti-diuretic hormone (adh) to slow nighttime urine production.
  • Stress: stressful events, such as becoming a big brother or sister, starting a new school, or sleeping away from home, may trigger bed-wetting.
  • Urinary tract infection: this infection can make it difficult for your child to control urination.
  • Sleep apnea: sometimes bed-wetting is a sign of obstructive sleep apnea, a condition in which the child's breathing is interrupted during sleep.
  • Diabetes: for a child who's usually dry at night, bed-wetting may be the first sign of diabetes.
  • A structural problem in the urinary tract or nervous system. Rarely, bed-wetting is related to a defect in the child's neurological system or urinary system.


Symptoms

  • Wetting during the day
  • Frequency, urgency, or burning on urination
  • Straining, dribbling, or other unusual symptoms with urination
  • Cloudy or pinkish urine, or blood stains on underpants or pajamas
  • Soiling, being unable to control bowel movements
  • Constipation

Most kids are fully toilet trained by age 5, but there's really no target date for developing complete bladder control. Between the ages of 5 and 7, bed-wetting remains a problem for some children. After 7 years of age, a small number of children still wet the bed.
When to see a doctor: most children outgrow bed-wetting on their own, but some need a little help. In other cases, bed-wetting may be a sign of an underlying condition that needs medical attention.

Consult your child's doctor if: 

  • Your child still wets the bed after age 7
  • Your child starts to wet the bed after a few months or more of being dry at night
  • Bed-wetting is accompanied by painful urination, unusual thirst, pink or red urine, hard stools, or snoring
  • Here are some tips for helping your child stop wetting the bed. These are techniques that are most often successful
  • Reduce evening fluid intake.
  • The child should urinate in the toilet before bedtime.
  • A system of sticker charts and rewards works for some children.
  • Make sure the child has safe and easy access to the toilet.
  • Some believe that you should avoid using diapers or pull-ups at home because they can interfere with the motivation to wake up and use the toilet.
