Pentaxim is banned in India and other countries. The WHO has advised all countries to stop giving this vaccine. Some recent studies proved that the Pertusis vaccine included in the Pentaxim does not work. Pediatricians know about this issue but some continue giving. It is wise though for us mom to be aware of it. I think you should go for the painful ones. Its ok if your baby will suffer fever and pain for couple of days if that means there is no chance of him getting any of those diseases later on in life. But then again, it is your choice. Just choose what is best for your baby. :) You can switch over and there is no problem

Hello, Is there any recent or past history of injury to the hand? Give him Arnica 30 and Rhus Tox. 30, both thrice daily for 2 days. Even then if the swelling doesn't subsides, better visit a Paediatrician.

Hi , guess you forget to mention about that tooth in details like whether it' s upper or lower, anterior or posterior along with your age there, but no worries as i' d like to suggest depending upon your feasibility you can go for either a fixed ceramic bridge or an implant for the same.

Improtance of Vaccination

MBBS, Diploma in Public Health ( Preventive and Social Medicine)

Hello, I am Dr Mangesh Chandewar. I have done post graduation diploma course in community medicines.

Today's topic is the importance of vaccination.

Vaccination is a biological molecule which is injected either through the injections, orally or through sprays. This helps us to create immunity against most of the infections.

Why vaccine is so important?

Even though we try to maintain good hygiene, cleanliness, sanitation, but still we can not prevent infection and the diseases caused by such infections. Right from the birth when delivery occurs, the baby comes in contact with the environment which is highly infected. This is like TB, Tuberculosis, which is more prevelent in India and we want to save our baby. Then right from the birth, the vaccines like BCG which is helpful in developing immunity against tuberculosis.

As per the National Immunization schedule and as per the WHO, we shoul give basic immunization, also called vaccination to the baby in order to develop immunity against the diseases.

What are the reasons to vaccinate the child?

If we do not give vaccination, it is not like the baby is going to infect but we can prevent most of the infections. If we do not give vaccination, the disease or infections can cause serious consequences rather than the vaccines. Vaccines are safer because they are being evaluated through the various phases during the clinical tria;. And also when it comes in the market.

Since they are very safe, they hardly have any side effect or consequences. and if any of the serious consequence occurs due to vaccination, that happens once in millions, so that they can immediately be taken care of. And teh action is taken according to the condition. My aim to get every baby vaccinated by birth, till the age of 5 years, all the vaccines should be appropriately given according to the proper age group. And the vaccines which are given after 5 years as and when required, once should get vaccinated.

In adults, when there is endemic or epidemic for any infections, say in 2010 swine flu was there, one should get treated as early as possible and should get vaccinated so that the disease should not be reoccured. The maximum number of people get vaccinated against infections. The community get the hard immunity. Accordingly we can prevent the disease throughout the community not only the individuals. This will help our country to fight against the diseases ans the infections.

This is all the basic immunisation and the vaccinations, I talked about. There are otther infection also, such as dog bite and other infections as well which can be vaccinated.

There are so many vaccines in the trials for so many life threatning diseases. As and when you get the chance, you can discuss it with the famly physician or any other doctor.

In order to know about the different vaccines. the appropriate age groups for the vaccines, or the side effects or any other vaccine related querry.you can contact me through Lybrate.

1. Try to introduce variety of foods. 2. Try to give natural foods. 3. Give food/ snack every 2 hours 4. Keep experimenting with different foods 5. Never force any food. 6. Make meal time as happy time with stories etc. 7. Create different animal bird shapes for roti / bread. 8. For example Milk can be given in any of its different forms. Like - milk, lassi, raita, milk shake, fruit shake, cheese, kheer, paneer. But some parents only like to force a child a simple cup of milk each and everyday. 9. Kids get bored of some/same foods easily. 10. Download new recipes from internet and try them out.

The HC at birth grows at the rate of 2 cm per month in the first 3 months and 1 Cm per month in next 3 months and thereafter 0.5 Cm till one year and you have to monitor it and if if it is less you need to check up.
