This is very tender age n r more prone to develop complications. He has taken already antibiotics for more than sufficient time with no satisfaction results. It is advisable to consult pediatrician for proper examination n tt. U can safely instill saline nasal drop in each nostrils 3 to 4 times in a day.

Sir, My 7 year old daughter is suffering from low level of thyroid. Her growth is not normal at this age. Mentally she is good but her physical growth is bad. Her nails also didn't growing from last more than 10 months. Kindly suggest me what to do.

MD - Homeopathy
Pediatrician, Mumbai
Hi, Mr. Lybrate-user, firstly if your daughter is a thyroid patient you should regularly check her tsh levels so we can analyse whether her thyroid status is normal or no if she is on medication. Because you require to adjust the dose of her medicines as per her tsh levels. Regarding diet you should increase her protein diet. Introduce sprouts, paneer, milkshakes, dates, jaggery in her diet. Lastly you also need to give her diet which is rich in calcium like ragi, almonds, milk and milk products. There are also very good yogas for thyroid patients, teach her it will benefit her and you can also start her on homoeopathic medicines which will give wonderful results.

I had my normal delivery using tools. And My newborn baby had its jaundice test when she was 5 days old and the bilirubin levels were high, so she was in phototherapy for 4 days. And as the doctor said it came to normal level, we was discharged. But now as she is 15 days old. I could still see her eyes are pale Yellow sometimes. Some said it is normal and will fade as she grows. But then am panicked. Is it normal? What should be concerned?

Eye clearance would take about 1 month, last site of clearance. Just recheked her Total serum bilirubin with blood or Transcutaneous bilirubinometer (a non prick techneque), If it is below phototherapy level, no need to worry.

Since baby is ok but passing stool 8 to 9 times that too after feed is not abnormal if gaining weight properly. It is due to gastrocolic reflex. Your baby is still short of expected date of delivery by 9 days. If he is being fed properly, he must be weighing about 2700 gm now if his birth wt was about 2200 gm. So need not to worry otherwise consult doctor.

It is difficult to tell how much this lotion is useful for the condition! I suppose whole body skin is not dry. If it is so consult either pediatrician or skin specialist. Otherwise you may use white petroleum jelly ie vasiline.

Usually this cyst does not cause any problem in pregnancy. It usually resolves on its own and if it does not then at the time of delivery if cesarean then it can managed simultaneously. If normal vaginal delivery then 2 months later get usg done for it. If it still exist then get investigated n take treatment.

Need not worry this is a common problem in children of this age group. You can use dulcolax paediatric per rectal suppository, which you need to insert in the anus (rectal opening) better to get it done under supervision, take help of a nurse. You can use duphalac syrup also.

Hello Doctors , My son new born with 2 months now and we are using for bottle feeding with similar 1 advance because my wife is not having enough breast milk so my question here is that which is the best feeding bottle we can buy and what is the process for cleaning the bottle and nipple.

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.

Your daughter needs to be evaluated by a pediatrcian and psychologist. Depending on that she will need physiotherapy and speech therapy. This will help her in attending a special school.

At six months you have to start all homemade foods one by one and when 1 year old he should eat with you at your meal timings. To suggest a diet I need to where you are form and the foods you make at home.In brief, all home made foods can be given.

Besides general risk of any surgical procedure this does not have any risk. Sexual function is nearly normal in almost all cases.

Health tip for babies.

Health tip for babies.

Babies have variation in appetite so don't go on day to day appetite but follow weight trend over 2 to 3 months. If that is okay. Baby is doing well.

Esp in sickness babies lose appetite as we do. 
So wait for few days n appetite will return. 

Regards

My son has very dark colour near neck area. Underarms and near thighs. He is overweight and 13 years old. Give some remedies for this.

MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Mumbai
Hi. Often such pigmentation is related to fold areas remaining hidden from air exposure. A daily application of a moisture absorbing powder three times a day and keeping the area clean and dry will help.

My son aged 12 years reading in Class-VI. Basically he is very obedient in nature but he is very unmindful and sometimes he is alone thinking something else and that's why he could not concentrate in reading and he is very slow learner despite his vigorous labor. He is not interested in sports and other physical activities. He has god gifted singing talent. He usually likes to sit alone. He could not adjust with friends in school properly. He is shaky in unknown areas and could not respond promptly. We the parents are very much anxious about his marks at School and his lonely behaviour. Please let me know whether there is any Education Therapy or any counseling is required for him. If it's required then please tell me how much time will be required for that as we are living at Silchar far distance from Guwahati. Please let me know whether this treatment is available at your organisation.

At least you have identified his great skill in singing. so you must explore that extensively to build self-confidence and to develop this area. This is an Early Adolescent stage and any manifestation of problems like these are indicative of some serious that needs the attention of a professional. There may be some developmental issues and/or genetic that needs immediate attention. If you do not attend to it now, it will disappear and make it appear that there is nothing wrong. That is a deception. It will come again in mid-adolescence seeking a resolution. If you do not solve it then it will come again finally for the last time in late adolescence. If at that time you do not resolve it, the child will enter adulthood with permanent negative traits that lead to a breakdown and cause even personality disorders. The more it is delayed, the more severe can be the effects.
