Dry cold (cough) Does nt need nebulizer. If you have asked to use, it means allergic cough and for that you have to avoid conditions which triggers cough.

You can try out ginger ale.but it is better to get her auscultated(checked through a stethoscope) by a general practitioner so that he can give you some mucolytics so that the csputtum will pass out through the stools.meantime also avoid cold food and drinks.

Pediatrician,
Respected sir/mam now my baby is 6 weeks old. Please tell me which vaccines are mandatory. And which are optional.
DPT /Hib /HepB /IPV..(some include rotateq first dose) Routinely given, you can give PCV in addition to the former. All these are to be given every month for three months. Optional is a misguided word. What it really means is, give it, if you can afford. All recommended vaccines are beneficial and are desirable but for affordability. (I use Rotarix at 10 & 14 wks instead of rotateq 6-10-14 wks. Both schedules are equally good)

Also inspite of eating all healthy foods he looks very slimhow to get rid of his tiredness and make his body fit?

General Physician,
You may check his blood to test there' s no anaemia by measuring Hb level and blood count. Also do thyroid function test as well. If there' s no medical problem and he plays actively there' s nothing to worry. The behaviour as you discussed is just his mannerisms. Get back if you want to. Regards

Can rotavirus vaccine be given after 2.5 month (1st dose) or it is too late to give baby the 1st dose and is it safe.

This is recommended for routine oral administration for all infants as a 3-dose series. The usual schedule is at ages 2, 4, and 6 months. Rotarix (GlaxoSmithKline) is recommended as a 2-dose series at ages 2 and 4 months. It can be given even if it is 2.5 months now.

We do not prescribe ayurvedic medicines. What is the weight of your child? this is a difficult age for children as they develop liking and disliking for different food. Try and introduce variety of food items. Add ghee, oil to food. Try and keep milk to minimum in his diet. Emphasis should be given to cereals, proteins, egg if you are non vegetarian. One fruit should be given daily. Try giving two boiled potatoes daily. Medicines cannot solve your problem. Proper diet can and patience.

Geographic tongue — Geographic tongue (benign migratory glossitis) is a chronic, recurring disorder characterized by pink to red, slightly depressed lesions with irregular, elevated, white or yellow borders (picture 3). The lesions are areas of dekeratinization and desquamation of filiform papilla. The pattern of dekeratinization and desquamation continuously changes, creating a migratory appearance. The lesions occur predominantly on the dorsum and lateral borders of the anterior two-thirds of the tongue. They are typically asymptomatic but may be painful when inflamed. Geographic tongue is more common in girls than boys. The etiology is not known, but it has been associated with childhood allergies. Reassurance is usually the only necessary treatment.

Why to Fill Up a Missing Tooth?

BDS
Dentist, Delhi
Why to Fill Up a Missing Tooth?

A missing tooth can be responsible for causing different health issues. Along with these, a person loses his ability of chewing with missing teeth, develop problems related to speaking and his overall facial appearance also gets affected.

In case of a missing tooth or several missing teeth, it is best advised to get dentures fitted. Dentures are false teeth, which are fitted in the oral cavity in place of lost natural teeth.

Here are several reasons why it is important to fill up a missing tooth:

  1. Shifting of tooth: When a tooth is lost, the surrounding teeth start drifting or moving in the open gap where the lost tooth used to be. The surrounding teeth are shifted out of the alignment. This affects the appearance of your face, and your teeth seem crooked and misplaced. It is necessary to replace a missing tooth with dentures in order to restrict the shifting before it is too late.
  2. TMJ Syndrome: After a tooth is lost and the surrounding teeth start shifting, the alignment is changed. This gives rise to problems with biting and creates issues with the jaws. The upper jaw and the lower jaw fail to meet correctly, and this causes strain and damage to the jaw joint. This phenomenon is called TMJ syndrome.
  3. Decay of tooth and gum diseases: After the shifting of surrounding teeth when a tooth is lost, the teeth alignment changes. This makes it difficult for a person to reach several areas in the gum with a toothbrush or floss. This makes plaque and bacteria accumulate in that area and they cannot be reached or cleaned. Tooth decay and gum diseases or periodontal diseases that are likely to affect those spots. These diseases and disorders cause further tooth loss.
  4. Alteration in facial appearance: A missing tooth should be replaced properly and a dentist must make sure that the root of the missing tooth is removed. In case the root is not removed totally, bone deterioration is likely to occur. Bone loss occurs in the jaw area, and this may result in a change or alteration in your facial appearance. A timely replacement of a missing tooth will prohibit bone loss from the jaw area, and you will be saved from any kind of alteration in your facial appearance, which might affect your looks and self-esteem greatly.

A missing tooth should never be ignored and in case you lose a tooth, you should see a dentist as soon as possible. By filling up a missing tooth, you will be able to save yourself from several issues related to the mouth and gums.

Hairs will definately go off with time. You can use home remedies like Mix turmeric and milk and apply on the baby from top to bottom after the oiling session. Let it dry. Then, remove with a soft wash cloth dipped in milk. And, give a bath to the baby. You do not have to use any soap or cleanser after this procedure as milk cleanses the skin. Do not use any of products if your baby skin is sensitive.

These medicines have no effect on production of milk. Best way to increase production, put baby on breast to suckle till breast becomes empty or baby is satisfied.

She is definitely under wt. Good nourishing diet rich in protein fried in oil/ ghee is right way to increase her wt. Give her well cooked in home diet of her choice. Nuts and dry fruits are also good for micro nutrients in addition to green vegetables and fruits.
