Most of the times bed wetting is inorganic. The approach in this case will be to look for organic causes which are those that needs treatment with medication or surgery. These are usually not needed. If the condition is inorganic, behaviour therapy could be instituted.

Hello. Watery stool is unlikely due to the medicine he is taking. More likely due the reason he had fever like viral fever with viral diarrhea. Give plenty of liquids and ors. After every motion give few sips of ors. Practice handwashing of baby before giving any food item in his hand. Outside junk food to be strictly avoided. Keep in mind baby passes 4 to 5 times urine per day.

Geographic tongue — Geographic tongue (benign migratory glossitis) is a chronic, recurring disorder characterized by pink to red, slightly depressed lesions with irregular, elevated, white or yellow borders (picture 3). The lesions are areas of dekeratinization and desquamation of filiform papilla. The pattern of dekeratinization and desquamation continuously changes, creating a migratory appearance. The lesions occur predominantly on the dorsum and lateral borders of the anterior two-thirds of the tongue. They are typically asymptomatic but may be painful when inflamed. Geographic tongue is more common in girls than boys. The etiology is not known, but it has been associated with childhood allergies. Reassurance is usually the only necessary treatment.

No need to fear. Its a very simple surgery. Get it done by pediatric surgeon only. Not by routine surgeon. If you do not do it timely then certainly future may give you worry. As testicles can not tolerate 1 degree higher temperature of tummy. Regards.

Hello, babies born before 37 weeks of gestational age are called pre mature babies. They are, of course, smaller than full term babies, but many are born without their organs having had enough time to fully develop. Some of these babies show obvious disabilities. They need a considerable medical care to survive. Mature babies are born after the completion of 37 weeks of pregnancy. Thanks.

Hello, please give her vit d 60, 000 stat every week for a month. In children calcium balance is important any discrepancy in calcium level leads to cold. We would start a low dose calcium (homoeopathic med) if complaint persist after a month.

Tired looking eyes and bit of yellow but otherwise active child can be due to many causes including jaundice, thyroid problem, malnutrition, exhaustion and even in genetic component which may be absolutely normal. You can try for a good multivitamin formulation along with good nutritious diet and increasing water intake. Even then you can do some blood test like lft, tsh, cbc, urine r/e.

Dear lybrate-user, usually there are periods when children don't eat as much as they used to eat previously. These could be because of childhood illnesses. The only red flag is the word'sudden' if it is sudden, there should be a reason for it which needs to be evaluated. Please see a paediatrician.

Well bedwetting also known as nocturnal enuresis is not uncommon in childhood due to immaturity of full urinary bladder which fails to send signal to brain to awaken the child. Most cases have genetic predisposition (familial tendency). Invariably the condition remits once the child grows up. It is uncommon to persist in adolescent age group. What to do then? it is first desirable to rule out any structural or functional anamoly of urinary tract. Once ruled out then following measures help a lot. 1 toilet training: to hold urine during day time to strengthen/enhance bladder capacity 2 to void urine 2 hours prior to sleep 3 no water/liquid intake within 2 hours of sleep. 4 role of drugs like imipramine is limited. There is relapse once medicine is stopped 5 wet bed alarm bell has been found to be very effective as with single drop of urine passed during sleep shall alarm the bell and person shall go the toilet for completion voiding 6 I have found with mentat syrup very encouraging results. 7 the family support is required! 8 there is nothing to be disappointed. You shall overcome this problem slowly but surely

You should not give any thing other than breastmilk before 6 months. Her excessive crying may be because of insufficient breastfeeding.

My new born baby is facing hiccup so many times in a day, so please tell me its normal course or any other issue, thanks.

Hi Hiccups are caused by sudden contractions of the diaphragm triggered by irritation or stimulation of that muscle. Some leading pediatricians are of the opinion that infant hiccups are usually caused by feeding (breast, formula or other foods) or by a drop in temperature that causes the baby to get cold. Hiccups are considered harmless unless they prove persistent enough to interfere with regular feeding and sleeping. Babies with gastroesophageal reflux disease (gerd) may tend to hiccup more frequently, accompanied by spitting up, coughing and irritability. Put the baby in upright position on your shoulder and pat on the back.

Eczema: Why Homeopathy Is Best to Treat It?

BHMS

Eczema is a very common skin condition that can be identified by reddening of skin, feeling of itchiness in the infected area, appearance of scaly and dry patches of skin. This disease is mostly caused due to skin inflammation or irritation.

Here are some of the advantages of using homeopathy treatment for eradicating eczema:

1. Excellent for eliminating chronic conditions - Homeopathic medicines prove to be excellent in treating chronic diseases whose symptoms have been recurring over the years. We often find that the cause of an allergy is a hyperactive immune response of our body. In Homoeopathy, instead of treating the symptoms of allergy, we try to treat the very basic cause of the problem and set right the immune system. Once the immunity is in order and stops over reacting to ordinary stimuli, the allergy is cured and so are the symptoms of eczema. This is where Homeopathy has an edge over other branches of medicine. Homeopathy treatment of eczema does not believe in suppressing the disease, but curing the disease from its root cause, thereby causing permanent cures.

2. Doesn't have any negative impact on your immunity - Unlike allopathic drugs, homeopathic medicines don't harm the immune system of your body. They have a gentle effect on your body. In addition to this, these medicines are responsible for stimulation of your body's self-healing mechanism, which adds to its efficacy against diseases like eczema.

3. Provides long term cure - Traditional homeopathy effectively provides relief from conditions and prevents them from coming back. The approach of treatment followed by homeopathy is to provide remedies matching an individual's physical, emotional, genetic and medical conditions rather than providing a common treatment for a specific set of symptoms. This approach effectively works on many skin conditions like eczema and starts showing visible results within a few weeks. More importantly, it ensures that you don't experience the symptoms again.
