You shall consult pediatric urologist for the same. And for which bigger institute is always better. As finding out root cause would need sonography. And sometimes test known as mcu. Fortis. Medanta etc would be a better choice.

Best solution is that DON'T FORCE her to eat and leave her on her own liberty to choose food of her liking available at home. Baby needs change in variety of food of her/ his liking. Avoid toffee, cold drinks n junk food etc.

Pulp therapy is absolutely safe however the child should be supportive or it can also be done in general anaesthesia. As he is 4 years old, that teeth should be saved till the permanent teeth come, and the treatment will not affect the eruption of permanent teeth.

My daughter is 7 years old. She often gets fever. It starts suddenly, and increases up to 103-104F. She is vaccinated properly .Now we are using homeopathic medicines. It gives better results to her when compared to allopathy. But we are unable to control the temperature. It gradually increases up to 103 F and reduces up to 100F at early morning and again raises upto 103 by evenings. This condition remains for at least 3 days .later the temperature goes down to below normal and she becomes very weak .We consulted many doctors. All blood test reports are normal. But there is no improvement . She is studying 2nd STD and she is very active and intelligent too. What do I do for her? How do I know the actual reason behind her health problem? Please suggest me. The reports are as follows. Complete blood picture (method: Capillary Photometric) Hb : 12.9 MCV : 77 MCHC : 35.7 ESR : 13 Remaining values are normal. Vit.

Frequent high grade fever without definit localisation symptoms like cough, coryza, altered stool are mostly due to viral infections. Another important cause specially in female child can be due to uti. The typical symptoms of uti like burning sensation and increased frequency can be absent in children. Please perform urine culture and sensitivity test done next time she develops fever and before starting antibiotic therapy.

4 months Baby suddenly having sore throat as a result sound generated when breathing.
Kindly advise.
Only symptom of baby is sound when breathing developed suddenly, is not criterion of sore throat. It is likely tug of saliva in throat may cause throat sound or it may be chest infection. Baby is only 4 month old, it is better to consult pediatrician for early intervention.

If he is active and feeding well doing all activities normal than you should not worry because some children have tendency to remain warm due to high basic metabolic rate but no problem in vitamin d deficiency body remains warm give vitamin d drops regularly. In hyperthyroidism which is rare body can be warm.

Hello, breastmilk is complete food for a neonate for first 6 months and no substitute is required if your beast milk production is adequate.Ensure that you clean your nipples with warm water after every breast feed and the layer of casein from previous feed is removed each time before fresh feed.

My kid is 7 months old now and I wish to nurse him at least for 6 more months. I feel there is a reduction in milk quantity. Started taking Galact granules 2 months back but did not find it boost the milk supply. Please suggest diet to increase milk supply.

The key to more milk is more suckling. The more your baby suckles, the more milk your body produces. Expressing breastmilk frequently would also boost production. Since your baby is 7 months old, your baby needs fresh, home cooked food along with breastmilk.

Do no worry. Mostly viral fever to start with is high grade and settles in 3 to 4 days. You can give paracetamol sos. If your child is well looking most fever subside without any antibiotics. If fever is persistent or there are abnormal symptoms like vomiting drowsiness loose motion then consult your pediatrician.

At this age child is quote competent to express himself. It appears he lacks in this field. Alone speech therapy is not helpful. His wt 13 lbs is very-very low even if I take it as 13 kg, he is under wt. He requires thorough examination.
