Dear Doctor, This mail is regarding my child who is 10 years old and issues related to him are: 1.He had Dengue last year 2015 and was hospitalized for two weeks, and had 18 bottles IV fluid administered, he recovered but, his immunity has gone down. 2.He has started eating rather, hogs on food, has put up weight, he is 43 kgs now. 3. He has become lazy and has no interest in studies, was a very good student he used to be in 1- 3 ranking in the class. 4. His memory has gone down, because of his laziness. 5. Very important. He has got adenoids. Some extra growth inside nose which has to be operated, very soon we are deciding on that. Please, advice on this issue. Thanks.

He might be 5th std. As we know children always vulnerable to suffer any type of disease till 10-12 years, unfortunate to know, he suffered from Dengue. Here, Im addressing of you 3-4th questions. Usually Childhood disorder, there would some precipitating factor to develop any types of problems usually, that would be no doubt academic activities. Stop worrying about his physical illness anyway that can be taken proper treatment. Now he required special attention related to his future in terms of academic activities need to be given special attention. My advise 1. Whatever he had general health complication is there first should be treated 2. Should not be over pampered at this stage by providing all he wanted 3. Find out Clinical or child Psychologist get id did done his IQ, he will also take care of counselling if required 4. Find out some special educator where he can be motivated and given special coaching for him as per his course curriculum 5. Some sort of physical exercise need to be assign to him, by assisting by you people. All the best.

My baby is 4 month old and as he rolling due to pressure on stomach he is vomiting a lot and his toilet is yellowish color proper but doing 3 to 4 times a day little little. Here he is drinking and then rolling and then vomiting. He is not vomiting milk but it's like dahi. Dr. he suggested perinorm 8 drops thrice a day is it safe to give him perinorm as I have read a lot of side effect of perinorm. If not safe then kindly suggest me the substitute for d same.

This is a normal reflux. Curd like little regurgitation is common while stomach is being pressed. So nothing to worry. We don't prefer perinorm unless there is severe vomits. The signs you mentioned is just a regurgitation. That does not warrant therapy. Do proper burping post feeds. Keep head up position and demoralized prone position for long. Regards.

U mean facial nerve paralysis? treatment depends on the phase of the disease it includes corticosteroids, antivirals, and physical therapy. Primary importance in your case is to give supportive treatment to eye ie lubricants eye patch.

Spit up is quite common among the babies. When he vomits just make him turn on either of his side so that he does not aspirate into his lungs and the milk comes out. If your child is gaining weight, there is no fever or other issues, there is nothing to worry about. Make sure you are burping your child about 20 to 30 minutes post feed. Warm regards.

Wait, breast-feeding will regain and start putting on weight. If treating pediatrician is confident, you need not worry. All babies lose weight initially, though your child seems to have lost more weight than expected. Follow your pediatrician, don't worry.

We do not prescribe ayurvedic medicines. What is the weight of your child? this is a difficult age for children as they develop liking and disliking for different food. Try and introduce variety of food items. Add ghee, oil to food. Try and keep milk to minimum in his diet. Emphasis should be given to cereals, proteins, egg if you are non vegetarian. One fruit should be given daily. Try giving two boiled potatoes daily. Medicines cannot solve your problem. Proper diet can and patience.

It would be preferable to breast feed the baby as long as possible (first 6 months is important .) Many babies play with their hands and legs which is normal. Babies can sleep more than 14 to 16 hrs in a 24 hrs. They sleep, play and need feeding every 2 - 4 hrs (varies slightly in different children.)

No doctor will ever endorse skin color improving medicines. Skin color is genetically determined, which can't be altered. Beauty lies in the confidence, meet Naomi Campbell, highest paid model, proud of herself.

Erectile problem is most likely a psychological one. Ask him not to worry. Ask him take a bath before sex. Avoid mobile phone tv etc. Use soft music. Create a relaxing environment. I hope he will overcome over this. Never ever show a displeasure if he is not able to make it.

Well your baby might have aspirated either liquor or meconium causing respiratory distress. Most baby recover with symptomatic Treatment. Unfortunately your baby is born with Pierre robin syndrome characterised by micrognathia (small chin) glissoptisis (falling of tongue in oropharynx )and cleft palate. The child needs special care in feeding and maintaining posture while lying down on bed preferably in prone position and be fed in almost sitting position to avoid aspiration through defect. Well with proper feeding and maintaining proper position the baby shall thrive and gain weight. At one year of age after proper evaluation the cleft palate needs to be repaired by maxillofacial surgeon

Don' t use any drops, it will cause mucosal damage if used repeatedly. If child is taking breast feeds at night, his nose is not blocked.
