Please do not give metrogyl without prescription, one of the side effect of it is abdominal pain and metallic taste. Here is what you should do, look for the signs of dehydration, (for signs of dehydration look my facebook page - pediatric department) if no signs of dehydration give syp zinc, ors and enterogerminia- means probiotic.

Usually children tell abdominal pain as attention seeking device and if tests are normal you have to think of it. If pain is sever you can give drugs like cyclopam and see. Speak to her caringly and inform me.

Hi lybrate-user, Your child needs further testing to know the cause for the fever which is coming since the last 8 months. In initial phase common tests like CBP, Malaria, Typhoid, urine infection tests, etc done. If they are normal, then other tests like TB tests, tests to rule out chronic infections and inflammatory diseases are being done by Children Doctors. In some children in spite of extensive tests, the cause of fever is very difficult to find out, but it is not possible. First it is better to know whether the child is suffering from common repeated infections which are causing fever since 8 months or a uncommon condition. So be in regular follow up with the Pediatrician for further evaluation of the problem with appropriate tests and his clinical examination. Hope I have answered your query.

Start giving her semisolid,solid foods at frequent intervals (2 hourly) in addition to breast or top milk. Gradually increase amount of food with increasing age. After 4 months you can expect weight gain around 3 kgs.

Hello thanks for the query the management and outcome of coarctation of aorta depends on its severity and it's effect on lung. If coarctation is mild and cardiac contractility is good you can wait. If possible the surgery should be deferred till 5 years of age as if operated earlier baby may need to be operated again. Please attach the report so that I better able to help you out. Regards.

I am a mother. My baby having motions problem now. His teeth are growing now. Please suggest the solution.

I am a mother. My baby having motions problem now. His teeth are growing now. Please suggest the solution.
When babies get teeth they have irritation in mouth and to stop that irritation they pick up all objects and place in their mouth leading to infection and eventually vomiting and loose stool. So to prevent this it's better to keep surroundings clean and and babies hands clean. If motions increase consult your doctor for signs of dehydration and medication. Best to start feeds for every episode of loose stool.

Is olive oil good for infant to massage? Please advise.

Pediatrician,
Is olive oil good for infant to massage? Please advise.
Any oil is good for massage as long as it suits your baby's skin. The basic purpose of the oil is lubrication, nothing else. Olive oil is traditionally supposed to b the mildest, but cocnut oil is as good, if not better.

If he is otherwise healthy the early morning temperature is of no significance. But check cbc, and urine routine test in a good lab and send me the results in private consultation. As it is better than open question.

My 2 years old daughter is not drinking milk we have to give her force fully.What can we do?

My 2 years old daughter is not drinking milk we have to give her force fully.What can we do?
No need to give milk forcefully. Every child has there own likes and dislikes. Instead of milk if she is taking milk products like curd cheese its ok. Even if not this then just ensure that she has a healthy diet. Milk is not essential. By giving her forcefully you are ensuring that she never takes milk in her life. So stop it.

Hello, Surgery karane se pehele aap use homoeopathic medicines kam se kam 1 mahina do aur phir mujhe uski condition batayo. Rozana Thuja 30 din mein 3 baar de aur masso par Thuja ointment lagaye. Ghabraye mat, masse hain to homoeopathy treat kar dega. Ho sakta hai 1 mahine ki jagah 2 ya 3 mahine lag jaye.

Is it ok to give pacifier to a 3 month old baby? she cries a lot.

MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician,
Is it ok to give pacifier to a 3 month old baby? she cries a lot.
Hello thanks for the query most of the time babies of this age group cry due to colic. You can give some colic drops after consulting your pediatrician. Pacifier increases the chance of infection and gaseous problem due to swallowing of air. These babies like to get cuddled. So whenever you find your baby crying try to feed him (as this may be huger cry. If baby is not willing to accept feeds then put the baby on your shoulder and do some rocking movement, this will also help in release of gas and colic. Wish your baby good health. Regards.
