How do you reach the conclusion about infection in stomach. In any case treatment will depend on what is the likely or definitive organism causing infection. Till then take probiotics like saccaromycese boulardi.

With this little description, I may guess, it may be a fungal infection. Apply candid lotion on. Wait for some days. If scar fades, continue treatment otherwise consult either skin specialist or pediatrician.

My daughter is almost 20 months old and have been running with high fever for 2 to 3 days.. Fever being 102 to 103 degrees. Have consulted a doc here in Mumbai but medicines don't seem to work. Her fever returns post few hours of dosage. She has vomited too esp post taking medicines in her anger since she didn't want to take medicines and we had pushed it down her throat. We aren't sure of the height exactly but doc mentioned she is fine with respect to height, age and weight. Medicines prescribed - 5 ML Macpod 50 twice a day for 6 days and 3.75 ML meftal P thrice a day till fever exists. This wasn't working so we again checked with the doc and he suggested to give 6 ML Crocin instead of meftal. She falls sick every 3 odd months with fever and get running nose too. We are really worried and thinking of getting blood and urine tests done. Pls suggest.

Yes if there are frequent infection like this then you must get cbc blood culture urine r/m and basic abdominal sonography shall be done. However these kids in infancy or around infancy do develop frequent seasonal infection specially flu like illness what is evident from history given by you as well. So preferably your child should get regular flu vaccine. After child is without fever for at least few days. I can understand worry would be highest peak for you. But don't worry things are going to be fine.

Vaccinations should be done acc to iap schedule of 2014 available.

There is lots of variation in age of dentition as long as other milestone is normal. There is no need to give extra calcium and vitD3 if child has normal locomotor development. Keeping any objects in mouth is physiological as the child tries to explore the object through mouth. You have to be cautious to prevent the child getting hurt or infection by swallowing sharp and contaminated items

I will suggest you to get his stools checked in a laboratory and follow up with reports and if there is no tightening of abdomen there is no problem even if he does not pass stools for seven days.

I have one child. He is 5 years old. My sister also has a baby. After watching my sister breastfeeding her baby, my son also wants breastfeeding milk from me. Please suggest how can I breastfeed my son.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
You have to clearly and lovingly explain to your child he is big and breast milk is for small babies. And there is no way you can produce milk as god has decided so. Encourage him to eat like you people as an adult (to boost his ego !)

Probably maxtra is trade name. Generic is convenient for proper advice. Anyway if maxtra is antibiotic, it has no role in Common cold n cough. U can instill saline nasal drop in each nostrils 3 to 4 times in a day n can give antihistamine.

Why Is Breastfeeding Is A Saviour For Your Baby & You | World Breastfeeding Week

Why Is Breastfeeding Is A Saviour For Your Baby & You | World Breastfeeding Week
Why is breastfeeding so good for your baby and you

Breast milk is the best for babies and the benefits of breastfeeding are one too many. Breast milk not only supplies your baby with its requirement of vitamins and nutrients, but also gets the substances which fight diseases, making your baby healthy and strong.
Benefits of breastfeeding are:

1. Protects Your Body - Breastfeeding induces some changes in your body which you might not be very delighted to accept, but are for the sake of your baby. Did you know, these very changes benefit you as well. Studies have proved that women who breastfeed are protected against breast and ovarian cancer. The longer you feed, the more protected you are.
2. Reduces Stress - Adding to the benefits of breastfeeding you can derive, is the fact that it helps you reduce stress. It also lessens your risk of postpartum depression. Breastfeeding has been found to be relaxing since it releases the hormone called oxytocin. This release also helps the uterus contract.
3. Averts Risk For Baby - A breastfed baby has lower risk of sudden infant death syndrome.
4. Reduces Obesity Risk In Baby - Breastfed babies have lower chances of obesity. They are good at judging when their tummies are full and therefore stop drinking on time. This leads to healthy growth pattern. Compared to babies who are fed on formula, breastfed babies gain weight at slower speed, hence reducing chances of obesity later in life.
5. Increases Cognitive Skills - Multiple researches have shown that there is a direct relationship between cognitive development and breastfeeding.
6. Enhances Baby’s Immunity - Breastfeed babies are also said to be better protected from developing allergies as immune factors like secretory igA is present only in breast milk. It creates a protective layer on the babys intestinal tract. Babies who aren't breastfeed are known to fall sick pretty frequently as formula diet doesn't build their immunity as mother's milk does.

SMA (spinal muscular atrophy) is a disease that robs people of physical strength by affecting the motor nerve cells in the spinal cord, taking away the ability to walk, eat, or breathe. It is the number one genetic cause of death for infants. SMA is caused by a mutation in the survival motor neuron gene 1 (SMN1. Chromosome 5 SMA is caused by a deficiency of a motor neuron protein called SMN, for “survival of motor neuron.” This protein, as its name implies, seems to be necessary for normal motor neuron function. Its deficiency is caused by genetic flaws (mutations) on chromosome 5 in a gene called SMN1. Neighboring SMN2 genes can in part compensate for nonfunctional SMN1 genes. Other rare forms of SMA (non-chromosome 5) are caused by mutations in genes besides SMN. In several forms of SMA, respiratory muscle weakness is a significant problem. It’s the most common cause of death in types 1 and type 2 chromosome 5 (SMN-related) SMA. When the respiratory muscles weaken, air doesn’t move into and out of the lungs very well, with subsequent adverse effects on general health. Signs of weakening respiratory muscles are headaches, difficulty sleeping at night, excess sleepiness during the day, poor concentration, chest infections and, eventually, heart damage and respiratory failure. Often, in infantile-onset SMA, the muscles between the baby's ribs are very weak, while the diaphragm muscle stays fairly strong. This leads to children who appear to be breathing by moving their bellies rather than their chests and to a pear-shaped body in these infants. For chromosomal changes there is hardly no specific treatment and you have to explain the nature of your child's trouble . He needs a neurological treatment for relief of symptoms.
