My son is of 51/2 months. From last 7 days, he had not done poop. Please suggest me what to do so that he can do poop?

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
It's not necessarily abnormal, unless accompanied by greenish vomiting and distention of abdomen. If child is playful and taking feeds normally, nothing to worry. You may try glycerin suppository.

Hi, my question is to a child/new born specialist. Recently I hv been blessed with a baby girl 4 days back. I would want to know which external feed /milk is best for my baby (cow's milk, buffalo's milk or packed milk powder).

Any milk other than breastmilk is not safe for a newborn baby. If mother consumes adequate fluids & food there will be enough milk secretion. If at all you want to give other milk nan 1 can be given.

Hi, if you have already introduced liquid diet (like'dal ka paani'chawal ka paani') earlier then you can introduce semi-solid diet like'sooji ka hawla'ragi'khichri' mashed fruits (like apple, banana, papaya) initially later can switch over to oats, veggies, etc.

Breast Feeding

Along with the baby, the mother also benefits physically and emotionally from breastfeeding. Due to the release of the prolactin hormones, a peaceful and nurturing sensation fills the mother.

Baby girl aged 2 years had slight temperature for the last two days, she was administered acetominofin and she is under control, but yesterday we observed a slight swelling on the lower part behind her ear. What might be the reason for this. This is not paining and she is quite normal otherwise.

Could be a simple lymph node. Very common in this age group. Its normal. If its not painful then its not a cause of concern. Its normal physiology of childhood. Dont waste your time and money on it. Let it be.

My baby is 5 month old so after 5 month baby which type of eating food. Suggest me.
Madam five monthsplus baby may or maynot satisfy with breast milk alone. This can be best judged by weight gain of baby and demand of breast feeds. If twenty minutes of sucking should keep child playingfor four hrs. Means breast milk is enough. Same is fact for feed baby. 5-6 months is crucial to start semi liquid soup type of feeds two three times a day breast feed is continued at five hrs interval. Frequency of breast feed should never increased nor contd sucking beyond twenty minutes is advocated.

6 Common Skin Problems in Children

MD - Dermatology , Venereology & Leprosy, MBBS

6 Common Skin Problems in Children

Children are more susceptible to health problems as their immunity is still developing and along with frequent infections such as fever or stomach problems, skin problems are a common affliction. Most skin problems within children are a manifestation of the underlying conditions such as allergies or other sicknesses. Some of the common skin allergies and problems are mentioned here.

  1. Heat Rash or Prickly Heat: This is possibly the most common skin condition that children are generally afflicted by. These are small red bumps on the skin which look like minute pimples. It is caused due to the blockage of the pores and excessive sweating due to hot weather or wearing warm clothes.
  2. Ringworm: Unlike the name, this condition isn’t actually caused by the infection from a worm. Ringworm is named so due to the ring that forms on the skin which is scaly, inflamed, red in color and can be quite itchy. It is mostly caused by a fungus that lives on the skin. Ringworms are mostly passed through skin to skin contact.
  3. Chickenpox Rashes: Although there are vaccines that have minimized the occurrence of this disease, it still occurs from time to time. One of the tell-tale signs of this disease are the rashes that may develop all over the body which is accompanied by fever. Although, these may go away, some marks from the rashes may remain and it is important to take care so that they don’t leave any mark behind.
  4. Eczema: This is another very common skin condition that afflicts many kids and is usually attributed to allergies and asthma. The typical symptoms usually include a patch of raised skin which is inflamed and red. Children often complain about excessive itching and the affected skin tends to be quite dry. Although topical medications are useful, curing or treating the underlying symptoms shows remarkable improvement.
  5. Impetigo: This is a type of bacterial infection which primarily occurs around the mouth and nose but repeated scratching can spread it around other parts of the body as well. In this condition, red sores or blisters may develop on the skin and then develop a yellow crust which may even ooze fluid sometimes. It is mostly spread by the use of objects such as toys and clothing items or even towels. Antibiotics may be required to treat this condition.
  6. Allergic reactions or contact dermatitis: Another very common skin problems that affect kids, this occurs as a reaction to certain chemicals such as those found in certain foods, soaps, plants or insects which may either cause a lesion or an inflamed area on the skin. In some cases, it may form blister, although all of these will go away on their own. However, if it persists for more than a week or two or if it is extremely painful, you should immediately take your child to the doctor. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult the doctor and ask a free question.

Did you mean asd? asd closure can be safely done by a device and the child can be discharged in a day or two, preferable to do in a hospital with expertise and facilities to do device closure in children, cost can vary from 60k to 1 lakh depending on the type of centre.

Breast enlargement is common and it's because of mothers hormones present in milk. Don't press it. Leave it alone.

Recurrent viral infections are common in first 3 years of life. For prevention follow strict hygiene etiquettes such as covering mouth, nose during coughing sneezing by adults. Frequent hand washing medicines containing multivitamins and minerals helps in boosting immunity. Also consider giving influenza vaccine.

Reduce her milk intake to 500ml. Add finger food. Make her sit with you while you eat and feed her same food.

My daughter is 2 years old. When she was born her hairs were thick and of good volume but after her mundan ceremony at the age of six months she have very thin and less hairs. Some part of her head seems like as if she is bald. Many people suggested me to perform mundan once again to have good hairs but I am confused to do so. Please suggest me what to do and also if there is any medicine or oil for her which suits her. As she is only 2 years old I am afraid to use so many products on her hair.

Traditionally, it is said that repeated mundan gives good hair, which is not fact. There is no oil or any thing to grow desirable hair. You may get checked her by skin specialist to rule out any scalp ailment. Otherwise take it as normal.

As the baby was born prematurely there are chances that ductus getting opened up at high altitude and may go for hypoxia. As you can access for medical facilities in any place better to opt for train.

Ghabraye mat, masse hain to homoeopathy treat kar dega. Ho sakta hai 1 mahine ki jagah 2 ya 3 mahine lag jaye.

What was her birth weight. Not gaining weight for 3 month is not normal. Breastfeeding alone is not sufficient at this age. Solid food has to be offered. Also need to see if there is any other issue / factors. Better show a pediatrician.

hi this is doctor Kalpesh from Pune this is a very good question you have ask about the temperature regulation system development in babies when babies inside the womb baby thermostatic settings are not that developed after delivery baby starts getting accommodated to the external environmental temperature and hypothalamic axis starts taking over the control of temperature regulation system TCP is not getting adopted to external environment you need to support baby buy wrapping With warm clothes keeping the temperature up to 30 degree Celsius you can also keep up baby along with your body touch so that baby can get heat from your body that is also called as Kangaroo Mother Care for the baby air conditioning is useful to prevent sweating during summer season and maintaining the hydration of your body but that is not at all feasible for babies you can get consulted for further details about baby babycare,regards
