I have a son of 4 1/2 years he often gets cold every now & then why does he get cold every time if I give him kerala banana will it effect him from cold & he likes to drink milk from the feeder. He don't leave his feeder.

Children are often prone to cold which may be due to viral infection or an allergic phenomena. However if there is an adequate weight gain and no other symptoms,no need to worry. As he grows, the episodes will become less frequent. Usually there is no relation between banana and cold as commonly believed. And you need to stop the feeder immediately. Warm Regards.

My 2 Months baby boy taking bottle feeding(Mother Milk not coming).He is taking NanPro1(Suggested by Doctor). Right now we are using only D3 drops. Some times he is feeling uneasy, is there any medicine for digestion. Please suggest me

MBBS, MD - Paediatrics, DCH

Dear, Don't worry.Since your is on formula feeds by bottle,he tends to swallow air during feeds. Buy a small feeding bottle (100ml) and fill it 3/4th and feed him in semi reclining position.Burp him thoroughly after every feed. This should suffice.No need of any digestive medications. Dr Srinath ks

Food Intolerance in Children - 5 Reasons Behind it

Food Intolerance in Children - 5 Reasons Behind it

Sometimes, during consumption of certain food items many children get itchy throat, eyes, ears, asthma, sneezing, rashes, diarrhea and eczema. This can be due to food intolerance in children. It is a form of allergic disease in children. Every 1 out of 10 children suffer from food intolerance. These days, food allergies are becoming more and more common in children who are allergic to nuts, milk and eggs. In some cases it can also be life threatening. This condition is known as anaphylaxis. Milk and egg allergies are more common throughout the world.

Symptoms of food intolerance:

  1. Bloating

  2. Your bowels start becoming irritable.

  3. Stomach starts to ache.

  4. Cough and cold is a common symptom.

  5. Itchy skin rash

Causes of food intolerance in children:

  1. There are enzymes in your body, which help you to digest the food you consume. Some enzymes in your body are insufficient; which further causes food intolerance in children. For instance, lactose intolerance causes spasms, stomach aches, diarrhea and so on so forth.

  2. Food intolerance can also be caused due to chemicals, such as chemicals present in coffee, tea, cheese and chocolates.

  3. Some food products can also cause food intolerance such as undercooked beans containing aflatoxins can cause extreme stomach infections in children.

  4. Some children are also intolerant to certain food products which have salicylates such as majority of fruits, vegetables, herbs and also additives. Processed food contains a high amount of salicylates.

  5. Children can be allergic to antioxidants like artificial food coloring, artificial flavoring and preservatives.

What to do if you think your child has food intolerance?

  1. Take your child for a skin prick test. In this test, the skin is pricked with a thin needle and when the blood oozes out, supplements of different food products are put in that area. If that particular area becomes reddish and begins to itch, your child has allergy to that certain food product

  2. A blood test should be done. It verifies the level of lgE present in your blood and finds out if your child is suffering from food intolerance or not. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.

If your child has mild autistic features and can speak 2-3 words then she should do well with intensive therapies, this is the right age to act. You should learn yourself and work with therapist.

I am 32 years old. Recently I hv a c section delivered a baby. After that I used some ayurvedic mefic to keep body heat. So now am getting excess dehydration. My total body is burning. Unable to feed baby also am getting fatigue, tired really feeling discomfort. What should I do.

Please stop this medicine. Continue with your iron and calcium supplements. Drink plenty of fluids like water, coconut water, lassi, milk, soups, fresh juices etc to keep yourself hydrated. If this does not relieve your problems, then you would need to get some blood tests like cbc, tsh etc and meet a gynaecologist.

It may not be umblical cord which falls in about 10 days. It must be umblical stump which may ooze serous. Leave stump as such keep it open and clean. Take care scab formed over it, is not removed.

My daughter of age 3 is suffering from premature hair whitening what should I do immediately.
Is there any family h/o premature greying? to treat homeopathically, we need further more infrmtion like how was her health previously, mile stones, her activity, nature, wt etc. But rt now I suggest you to follow few health tips. Home remedies to follow. Try to rub red hibiscus flower's petals (mandhaara) over scalp, specially over the effected area daily once r twice. Boil til or coconut oil with the dried petals of same red hibiscus flowers, fw fenu greek seeds (methi),&curry leaves&filter it &apply daily over the scalp&hair with gentle massage. *give her soaked fenu greek seeds daily on morning to swallow (minimum 8-10 seeds). **use more curry leaves&methi leaves in making curry or roties. As she is 3 years old only, she may not eat all these. So make these powders &add in curries or roties&let het eat with some desirable flavour like ghee (cow ghee is good). Daily give her soaked&peeled out almonds minimum 8-10, apricots&walnuts.

If the baby is exclusively breastfed it can not be diarrhoea. Breastfed babies usually pass frequent semisolid stools following feeding.
