Lice in 3 months baby is unlikely. If it is, she must have contracted lice from family member most likely from mother. Even then I suggest to consult doctor to confirm it and proper treatment.

Head circumference of your baby is within normal limits for his age. With normal cranial usg, there is no evidence of hydrocephalus.

As evident by data given above,child seems to be severly malnourished,The child who is not eating sufficient food is likely to be constipated.Start giving semisolid diet at frequent intervals & gradually shifting to solid diet rich in proteins & fats.Expect good results in 3 months.As weight starts picking up all symptoms will fade up.

Try giving him semisolid foods at 2-3 hours gap, never force food. You are required to train to take baby food like everyone does. If you notice baby to be dull, consult a physician to rule out any prevaling illness.

Eczema: Why Homeopathy Is Best to Treat It?

BHMS

Eczema is a very common skin condition that can be identified by reddening of skin, feeling of itchiness in the infected area, appearance of scaly and dry patches of skin. This disease is mostly caused due to skin inflammation or irritation.

Here are some of the advantages of using homeopathy treatment for eradicating eczema:

1. Excellent for eliminating chronic conditions - Homeopathic medicines prove to be excellent in treating chronic diseases whose symptoms have been recurring over the years. We often find that the cause of an allergy is a hyperactive immune response of our body. In Homoeopathy, instead of treating the symptoms of allergy, we try to treat the very basic cause of the problem and set right the immune system. Once the immunity is in order and stops over reacting to ordinary stimuli, the allergy is cured and so are the symptoms of eczema. This is where Homeopathy has an edge over other branches of medicine. Homeopathy treatment of eczema does not believe in suppressing the disease, but curing the disease from its root cause, thereby causing permanent cures.

2. Doesn't have any negative impact on your immunity - Unlike allopathic drugs, homeopathic medicines don't harm the immune system of your body. They have a gentle effect on your body. In addition to this, these medicines are responsible for stimulation of your body's self-healing mechanism, which adds to its efficacy against diseases like eczema.

3. Provides long term cure - Traditional homeopathy effectively provides relief from conditions and prevents them from coming back. The approach of treatment followed by homeopathy is to provide remedies matching an individual's physical, emotional, genetic and medical conditions rather than providing a common treatment for a specific set of symptoms. This approach effectively works on many skin conditions like eczema and starts showing visible results within a few weeks. More importantly, it ensures that you don't experience the symptoms again.

Personally I would say don't give bottle with breast. Most of mothers think that milk is insufficient. But it's not true. Weigh the child to find out adequacy of milk. And child should be fed every two hrly at two months. Breast should be given to child in consonance of his age in months. Three month old child is fed three hrly and. Six month old is given breast feed six hrly. Breast feed should be for 10-15 min. On each breast.

As such it is safe for him to take that. But as his age is quite young, please ask the consultant to reduce it dose on the basis of improvement. Or else on the other side you can start Homoeopathic treatment side-by side so that, it can be cured sooner by both medications. And I would prefer that those allopathic medicines should be stopped in tappering manner not suddenly. Still if you have any query, please let me know.

1. There is nothing like painless vaccine. 2. Every vaccine is associated with some pain 3. Whatever there is available in market for human use is made available only after it has gone through three phases of trials (animal + human voulenteers) the forth phase of trial is post sale survays. 4. Please get your child vaccinated immeditely. 5. A little pain will go in few minutes or a day but if the child got the disease it would be more painful for the child and for the family.

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 103f and reduces up to 100. 8f 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.

Probably your daughter is suffering from repeated viral infections. It is most common type of infection in children. Most common causes are. 1-exposure to cold surroundings. 2-eating or drinking cold items. 3-coming in contact with patients suffering from contagious (spreading) diseases 4-being in crowds 5-physical weakness due to malnutrition (protein, carbohydrate or iron deficiency). Give her high protein diet like daal, eggs, chana, milk etc. Give her green leafy vegetables, jaggery groundnut chikki, dried black grapes, beet root to raise the haemoglobin. 5 pieces of almonds, 2 of walnut and 1anjeer will be very beneficial to her.

The features described also suggest component of adhd. Get the detailed evaluation by a psychologist as the treatment modalities are different for adhd and dyslexia. Also decrease sugar content of the food. Get him to some swimming class or dance class to dissipate his energy.

Hello. Firstly, try to stop breastfeeding. It will cause some trouble for few days. Bear it. Next, donot force her to eat. That will make her averse to food. Sit together on a dining table and give her a separate plate and spoon. Serve food and let her enjoy it by herself. It will be messy at times, but enjoy it. If she is hungry, she will eat. You and your family also join together at meals. It will automatically develop her eating habits. Happy parenting Regards
