keep your leg raised while sitting or lying quadriceps strengthening exercises- quad clenches: lie flat on your back or sit upright on a chair with leg kept horizontally on another surface. Now, tighten the muscle on the front of the thigh by pushing your knee down. You should feel your thigh muscles clench, hold for 3 secs. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Short arcs: lie flat on your back or sit upright with your leg placed horizontally on a flat surface like a chair or bed. Place a rolled up towel under the knee. Pull your toes towards you and clench you thigh muscles. Slowly lift your foot up off the bed until your knee is straight (keep your knee resting on the towel). Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower them on the chair. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Straight leg raise: lie flat on your back. One leg and knee will be straight and other leg should be bent. Pull your toes towards you and tighten/clench the muscle on the front of the thigh, locking your knee straight. Lift your foot up in the air, about 6 inches off the bed. Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower the leg. The knee must remain straight the whole time you are doing this exercise.

Hello, library user, you are lucky enough that your baby sleeps in the night as in most of cases, babies do not sleep in the night & cry for the whole night. However, she should not be left for 6 hrs, continuously without feeding & be breastfed, three hourly. Inculcate your expertise to manage your baby to sleep ,thereafter. Tk, care.

Atopic Dermatitis - What Causes It And How Can It Be Prevented?

Atopic Dermatitis - What Causes It And How Can It Be Prevented?

Atopic dermatitis is an inflammatory skin disease that most commonly affects children during their first year of life. This is also commonly noted in older children and occasionally in adults. This disease causes severe itching that many a times leads to skin infection. These rashes are commonly seen over the scalp, neck, cheeks and face. As the child grows older and also in adults, the rashes mainly appear in body creases and folds.

Aetiology-

The exact cause of atopic dermatitis is still under research but it is believed that people with the following are at risk of getting atopic dermatitis-

  1. People with asthma or hay feve r
  2. Living in cities and in coldclimate
  3. Family history of dermatitis

Dermatitis is not caused by food allergies but people with dermatitis are allergic to certain type of food like milk and other dairy products, shellfish and nuts.

Symptoms-

  1. Dry itchy and scaly skin
  2. Redness and rashes
  3. Scratching and itching
  4. Appears bumpy and develop knots in thickened areas

Complications

If left untreated, atopic dermatitis may results in:

  1. Asthma and hay fever: More than half of the children with atopic dermatitis develop asthma and hay fever by age 13.
  2. Chronic itchy, scaly skin: Atopic dermatitis can cause the affected skin to become discolored, thick and leathery.
  3. Skin infections: Repeated scratching that breaks the skin can cause cracks and open sores. These increase the risk of infection.
  4. Irritant hand dermatitis: This especially affects people whose core work requires their hands to be wet and exposed to detergents, harsh soaps, and disinfectants.
  5. Sleep problems. The itch-scratch cycle can result in poor sleep quality.

Treatment-

It’s important to visit the dermatologist for treatment to control the disease and prevent it from worsening. Treatment includes medicines to control itching, reduce skin inflammation (redness and swelling) and clear infection.

Prevent Relapse-

The dermatologist will also suggest lifestyle modifications which are very important to manage the disease.

Tips for people with dermatitis-

Ways to ease discomfort :

  • Make sure the humidity and temperature levels are comfortable.
  • Apply moisturizer twice daily to make sure the skin does not get dry and cracks.
  • Enquire your doctor about how to use wet wrap therapy and its effects.
  • Make sure your child’s finger nails are cut short and smooth.

Bathing care -

  • Bath your child with warm water not with hot water and make sure you complete the bath within 5-10 mins.
  • Just pat the skin after bath with soft cotton towels and don’t make it dry completely.
  • Apply the medicine if advised after bath. Make sure you apply the medicine before the skin gets completely dry.
  • Apply moisturizer over the medicated skin.
  • Avoid bubble bath and prefer bleach bath every two days if the skin gets infected.

Choosing right clothes-

  • Uses limited amount of detergents to wash the clothes.
  • Rinse the clothes with adequate amount of water and dry it completely under direct sunlight.
  • Wash new clothes with plain water before wearing to your child to remove excess dyes and fragrances.

Common Problems in Children - Homeopathic Ways To To Deal With Them?

Common Problems in Children - Homeopathic Ways To To Deal With Them?

Children are constantly complaining of running noses and flus. This is part of their process of strengthening immunity and hence every child must go through this phase. Prescribing antibiotics every time a child sneezes worsens the situation by weakening their immunity. Hence, when it comes to children, homeopathy is an excellent form of treatment. Homeopathy can be prescribed to children of all ages.

Homeopathy addresses the physical, mental and emotional characteristics of a child and addresses the root of the problem. Though it has negligible side effects, apart from a few homeopathic medicines, it is always a good idea to consult a homeopathic practitioner before administering medicine to a child. Some homeopathic medicines that are commonly prescribed for children’s problems are:

  1. Aconite- This is used to treat the sudden onset of any illness or any illness in its early stages. Aconite is most often prescribed to treat flu and common colds. It can also be used to calm a child in case of sudden shock or fright.

  2. Arnica- Children are constantly falling and bruising themselves and arnica is the best first aid. Arnica can be ingested in pill form or applied topically in cream or gel form. It is useful for bruises, sore muscles, burns and black eyes but should never be applied topically over broken skin.

  3. Calcarea Carbonate- This is used to treat ear infections and colds that are a result of exposure to cold weather. It can also be used to treat babies who perspire excessively from their head and complain of heat and pulsating sensations in their ears.

  4. Chamomilla- This homeopathic remedy is ideal for restlessness, caused by teething, ear troubles, colic etc. It can also be used to treat bedwetting and diarrhoea. A cup of chamomile tea before going to bed can also help a child sleep well.

  5. Pulsatilla- This homeopathic remedy can be used to calm nervous and whiny children who alternate between extreme happiness and sadness. It is also efficient when it comes to treating ear aches that become worse at night and colds accompanied by yellow or yellow-green mucous discharge.

  6. Sulphur- Sulphur is used to treat earaches accompanied by perspiration and redness of the ears. It can also be used to treat skin problems such as scaly skin and acne eruptions. Irritable children who complain excessively after having a warm bath or getting out of a warm bed can also be calmed with sulphur. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a homeopath.

My grand son is 4 months old. Apart from Mother's feed he is given Lactogen. Can I replace lactogen by cow's milk.

Pediatrician,

You may, but don't change often. But remember, it's not advisable to take foreign milk protein before one year as it is prone to develop allergies. But we in India have all along been giving cow milk to babies.
