His birth weight is 3.25. And he is crying in night daily. My pediatrician said its stomach pain and gave him colimex. Shall I give him when he is crying more.

You have not mentioned age. If child has colic pain then colimex will help. Sudden excessive cry in healthy child in evening and between to 3 wk to 6mo. Then it is likely to be colic. But make sure there is no other disease or illness. Give medicine as adv, by doctor.

Help reduce your risk of getting a cold by washing hands often with soap and water. Practice good cough and sneeze etiquette: always cough and sneeze into a tissue or your upper shirt sleeve, completely covering your mouth and nose.

Kindly share her weight and height. Along with what she had consumed in the last three days. It will be helpful if you can mention her birth weight.

I am 29 years old anď my baby is 2months old. She is suffering from cold from one month still it is not cured. Now I am using nasoclear drops for her but can I use t manic drops also along with nasoclear. Is it safe to use both drops at a time?

Hi lybrate-user, Cold in the form of nose block would need only nasoclear and that only will partially recover the open nose. But if there is running nose you need to see a pediatrician to get the right medicine. Both T minic and nasoclear, if required can be given together.

Epilepsy In Children - How To Deal With It?

Epilepsy In Children - How To Deal With It?

Epilepsy is repeated episodes of seizures caused by abnormal signals in the nerve cells in the brain, which can result in strange sensations, convulsions, muscle spasms and loss of consciousness. It is frightening to watch your child have an episode of seizure, but the good news is that most children with epilepsy outgrow seizures. An episode usually last from a few seconds to a few minutes.

Types of Seizures
There are 2 types of seizures:
Generalized Seizures affect the whole brain

  • Generalized tonic-clonic seizure: It is the most common type of seizures in children. In this condition, the child's body becomes stiff and falls, the child may also experience shaking of the limbs. The skin becomes bluish and teeth are clenched. The child may fall into a deep sleep afterward.
  • Absence or Petit Mal Seizures: The child is unresponsive and may have eyelid blinking/ staring.
  • Atonic and tonic seizures: The child collapses suddenly due to complete loss of muscle tone. This can result in head injuries.
  • Myoclonic Seizures: The child may experience sudden, brief jerky movements of muscles of head, neck, and shoulders.

Partial Seizures affect a part of the brain

  • Simple partial seizures are characterized by uncontrollable movement of a part of the body. The child is conscious and aware but can't control the movement.
  • Complex partial seizures occur mostly during sleep the child may make odd movements, run, scream and even hallucinate. And if the child is awake, he doesn't recall the event.

Do's and Don'ts during an episode of seizure

  • Keep a track of how long the episode lasts
  • Turn the child to one side to prevent choking
  • Put a pillow under the child's head
  • Never try to put anything in the child's mouth as it may obstruct the breathing.

There can be many causes of episodes of seizures

  • During high fever in the first 48 hours (febrile seizures)
  • Head injury
  • Bacterial and viral infections of brain like meningitis
  • Lack of oxygen to brain
  • Disorders in brain development
  • Organic disorders of brain like cysts and tumors

Diagnosis

  • It is confirmed by a pediatric neurologist
  • Various investigations are done to confirm the diagnosis including MRI and EEG.
  • Blood and urine tests to diagnose infections

Treatment of epilepsy
The pediatric neurologist usually decides the treatment plan depending on the child's age, weight, and type of epilepsy.

  • Antiepileptic medications are the first line of treatment. The drugs are usually required for two years and then if there is no episode for these two years, it is discontinued. These drugs may have some side effects like drowsiness, inability to concentrate and gingival enlargement. Discuss with your pediatrician on ways to manage them.
  • Sometimes a ketogenic diet is also prescribed. The child is given a fat rich and carbohydrate low diet.

It is worrisome as a parent if your child is diagnosed with epilepsy, but about 65% children need medication for 2 years and then outgrow seizures. However, remember that the child should never miss their medication and get enough sleep.

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