Hello, I met with an accident on 25 august 2016 my forefoot bone broke down right foot. Now after getting plaster for 6 weeks bone is still not fully joined. I am worried for it, my plaster was removed on 7 October. I feel pain while walking I am unable to put body weight on my foot. Can anyone help me or guide me in this? Can my bone break down again if I walk or there is no such type of risk? Can I resume my activities or driving?

Hi, first of all do you went for X-ray recently if in cream it shows union of joints properly than you need to do wax bath, strengthning exercises and if you feel restriction of movement than some streatching exercises also. Do let me know if you have any doubt.

All About Constipation in Children

All About Constipation in Children

Constipation in children is a common pediatric health issue mostly arising due to early toilet training and having an inadequate diet. Most cases of this condition do not last for long and can be easily treated.

Constipation in children is mainly caused by the following factors:

  • Lack of fiber content in their diet caused due to an aversion to veggies, often result in constipation in children.
  • Withholding stool: Your child may be holding his bowel movements in because of stress with toilet training. This maybe because he/she doesn't want to defecate in the school bathroom or in other places. Often if it hurts to poop once, the child might withhold his bowel movements and this leads to a vicious cycle.
  • Side effects of certain medications.
  • In rare cases, children facing abuse may develop constipation.


You will know your child has constipation if the following occurs:

  • Your child spends a lot of time while defecating
  • Your child complains of difficulty with bowel movement
  • Bloating and stomach pain
  • Soiling accidents


A combination of the following approaches helps in treating constipation in children:

  • See to it that your child eats all his vegetables and fruits. Include more fibrous vegetables and fruits in the diet. Include food containing probiotics like yoghurt.
  • Use a stool softener: While using a stool softener the most common mistake is to apply too much or too little amount of the concoction. Carefully use the right amount of stool softener for relieving your child of constipation.
  • Ensure that your child has a lot of fluids in his/her diet. Fluids help to hydrate the body and lubricate the digestive system.
  • Look into the fact that you child has regular toilet hours.

Doctor. I am aged 60 and a type 2 diabetic. One tab each morning and evening taking. Night I am taking only fruits. One apple and grape plus any type of banana. Is this is correct diet for me.

General Physician, Pune
No. Fruits contains mainly carbohydrates. Taking only carbs for dinner is bad idea. Carbohydrates in the morning are ok. Take light protein food for the dinner. Like chapati, dal, non veg etc.

I am 68 year old suffering from recurrent candidal Balanoposthitis. What are the home remedies, Ayurvedic and homeopathic treatments.

General Physician, Nashik
One of the best natural anti fungal agents for treating fungus infections of the skin, tea tree oil may take time to eliminate the fungus; but eliminate it will, and forever. Being very strong and acidic in nature, it is essential to dilute it before usage. Take two parts of tea tree oil and five parts olive oil and mix thoroughly. Apply on the affected skin and massage it so that the oil penetrates the skin and exerts its influence on the fungus. Repeat every day until the fungus recedes completely.

I am 29 years old and i am suffering with psoriasis since 3 years please help me what can i do?

Psoriasis is manageable, the traditional approach is to start with the mildest treatments topical creams and ultraviolet light therapy (phototherapy) and then progress to stronger ones only if necessary. The goal is to find the most effective way to slow cell turnover with the fewest possible side effects coupled with a dietary therapy specially designed to manage psoriasis. Researchers found several studies linking obesity to an increased risk for psoriatic disease. These studies indicate that a higher body mass index (bmi) is associated with an elevated risk for developing psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis, as well as increased disease severity. Obesity may provide the nudge that triggers psoriasis in people who are already predisposed to it, researchers also found that in overweight individuals, losing weight may improve the effectiveness of treatments. So if you lose weight, you may be reducing fuel for the fire. I being a both a registered dietitian (rd) and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications. I will also suggest home remedies. Do reply back for private consultation for rx.

Mattresses & Pillows

Physiotherapist, Bangalore
Mattresses & Pillows


“My neck pain started two days ago, Immediately I removed my pillow”

This is the very usual dialogue that I hear in my daily practice from my patients who are suffering from neck pain. Is pillow that important factor in causing neck pain or in relieving neck pain?? Let us know the facts.

Neck pain can be caused because of various reasons. Poor neck posture is one of the reasons for neck pain. So, what should be your sleeping posture? How can a pillow alter your normal sleeping posture?

Body needs rest and sleep gives our body rest so that body and mind work efficiently. It is very important that we maintain a normal sleeping posture so that muscles also get rest.


  • Spine has to be straight
  • Neck has to be in line with the body.
  • It is better to avoid sleeping on tummy, as you will be forced to turn your neck to one side to facilitate breathing. Whole length of your sleep is spent with the neck turned to one side, out of alignment with the body, forcing the brain to sense something wrong and you wake up with a stiff neck. Pillow has no role here!!!

So, what kind of pillow can be used?

  • Pillow can neither be too hard as it doesn’t absorb the shock/ weight of head, nor it can be too soft as the weight of the head can depress the pillow down and might take neck too low than body.
  • Ideally the pillow has to regain its original shape faster once you wake up from lying position. If a pillow takes too long to come back to its original shape or doesn’t come at all or remains in the same shape, its time for you to change your pillow.
  • If you are lying on your back, its better to use a thin pillow which supports your head and neck. Please do not use a thick pillow in this position, as it may raise or bring your head and neck forward or higher than body causing stress to your spine.

Not using a pillow when you lie down in this position can take your neck backwards and might cause trouble breathing.

Recommended to use a thin/ lighter pillow when you lie down on your back.

  • If you are lying on your side (right or left), its better to go with a thicker pillow. Ideally the pillow should be as thick as the distance between your shoulder and neck, so that when you lie down on your side the neck doesn’t go down or go up and stays in line with the body. Pillow has to be used!!

Recommended to use a thicker pillow when lying on side.

Pillow is not a major cause of neck pain. Its always better to use a pillow than not using at all. Removing the pillow the moment neck pain starts is definitely not a good solution for your neck pain. Chose the right pillow and more importantly consult your Physiotherapist.


As with the pillow for neck pain, mattress is not a major cause for back pain.

  • Mattress should not be too hard, should not be too soft either.
  • If it is too soft, the broader areas of our body like the hips and shoulders, might press the mattress down thereby reducing the support for other body parts, which strains them as they do not get proper support.
  • If its too hard, the mattress wont be able to support the various natural curvatures of our body (broader and narrower areas), forcing the muscles to work more and get strained.
  • Its better to change a sacked mattress or too depressed mattress.
  • Mattress should be uniform in contour.
  • Lying bare on floor wont work!!!!

And more importantly consult your Physiotherapist for back related issues.

If your problem is just a recent one it might only be a sleep cycle issue. For that you need to reschedule your sleep gradually. But if this has been a recurring problem or present for a long time, get yourself evaluated with a complete history of complaints. Till then follow some instructions- 1) Keep your waking up time fixed no matter how early or late you go to sleep. Set alarms and get up anyhow. 2) Have a light dinner possibly with fruits, at least 2 hours before going to bed..

Fungal infection between toe fingers & thigh is very frequent. Any solution please?

ARCD in Critical Care
Unani Specialist, Delhi
Do check your Blood sugar level. Moreover mention your age and weight in your question. Moreover apply pentaderm plus ointment up to seven days . If symptoms didn't inprove in two weeks then take appointment with your skin specialist.

Every few days I get kind of rashes around my urinal. A few days back I got type of ringworms above my urinal. Its just growing and now has reached a few cms big.

BHMS, MD - Homoeopathy
Homeopath, Lucknow
In humid conditions, ringworms are common and can affect in major way. Local application of creams give only temporary relief and it comes back again. To get prolonged relief you should take homoeopathic treatment and to manage it, you should make the affected place dry and apply anti fungal powder, and avoid sour things in diet.
