My son is one year old. He is in a stage where his teeth are coming. He is suffering with loose motion for the past 5 days.

First you need to understand that loose motions are not due to teething per se., Children used to put hands into mouth because of teething,this causes infection and loose motions. So try avoid that. So don't worry unless he is dehydrated.

My son is 5 year's old he is often infected (viral) and complains of stomach pain regularly. Recent ultrasound confirms mesentronic lymph nodes between 6 mm to 12 mm on short axis in abdomen. Please advice me.

Pediatrician, Chandigarh
Mesenteric lymphadenitis (enlarged lymph nodes) are not so uncommon in children. As far as your child is concerned size is small. First thing is to rule out infection / tb. Any history of tb contact? you can give him a trial of antibiotics for seven days. And can get a repeat usg for the size of lymph nodes.

Generally there is no fever after anti rabies injection, in case of fever use plain paracetamol. Once started continue anti rabies vaccine 0-3-7 days (if no signs of rabies in animal then convert it to prophylactic vaccination by giving at 30 days) 14-28 days. 90 days booster.

Only pus cells in urine is not a worry thing about your baby health. If your baby don't have any fever, difficulty in passing urine, feeding problems no need to do anything. Pus cells are part of our body protection. Give more fluids. Mostly that will solve your baby problem.

As he is just two months of age and hence it’s better to get him examined by a paediatrician for diagnosis

Generally moles are not of concern. If they are growing or changing color, bleeding or too big in the first place, see your pediatrician.

My Daughter is 5 Year old. But She still bed wetting at night regularly. (4-5 times a week) We find difficult to manage it. Please Advise.

MBBS, FELLOWSHIP IN PAEDIATRICS
Pediatrician, Ghaziabad
As adults, when the bladder gets full, it sends a signal to the brain to wake up or you start dreaming about water or going to bathroom, and then you wake up, but for kids the signal isn't quite strong enough to get them awake which is why it is normal for children to wet the bed till age 6 or below. Therefore bed-wetting is a developmental issue and therefore the treatment is time, so for kids age 6 or under, they will most likely grow out of it. It becomes an issue when the child starts feeling bad about himself, when he starts to pull away from his friend because he is afraid that his friends will make fun of him. It makes matters worse when parents yell and scream at their children for bed wetting. Kids need reassurance and encouragement from parents. Children who continue to wet the bed beyond the age of 6 may not be producing enough ADH hormone at appropriate times or may not yet be attuned to their bodies' signals, or both. Behavioral changes too play a role in achieving dryness, he says. Try decreasing the amount that kids drink before bed. Parents should seek formal treatment between ages 6 and 7. There are bed wetting alarms available which are very effective on their own. But they take around 12 weeks to show the difference. If the problem is severe a pediatrician should be consulted for medication advice such as desmopressin which acts on kidneys to reduce the flow of urine. Another medication is imipramine which allows you to have better control of the bladder, affects the bladder musculature and may change sleep patterns, so kids wake up if they have to urinate. While this is cheaper than desmopressin it has more side effects on long term used. The bottom line is you should resort to medicines as last option first try reward therapy and beahvioral changes. More than 80% children at this age will grow out of it.

I have given my 6 weeks baby 4 vaccines today morning at 10 AM except PCV1 in govt hospital. But I consulted with doctor privately for PCV1-13 and he planned to give it tomorrow 6 PM. As it is a gap of 32 -34 hours is it safe to take the vaccine with cent percent effectiveness and benefit or some issue will be there? Please clear my doubt?

The vaccine can be given without any doubts or anxiety. The time interval is for LIVE VACCINES (MMR, Chicken-pox, Live attenuated Hepatitis A vaccine, Flu Vaccine - both intra nsal and injectable) in which case, the live vaccines can be given on the same day, otherwise a minimum of 4 weeks interval must be maintained.
