Every patient is concerned about their child health , Despite great strides in decay prevention, one in four young children develops signs of tooth decay before they start school. Half of all children between the ages of 12 and 15 have cavities. Dental care should begin as soon as a child’s first tooth appears, usually around six months,Teeth can be wiped with a clean, damp cloth or a very soft brush. At about age 2, you can let kids try brushing for themselves -- although it’s important to supervise.

My son is 7 years old, on back side of his left leg, there is a light white line from hip to foot. Please suggests reason and remedy for the same, is this due to some deficiency ?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Not due to any deficiency. It can be birth mark, post inflammatory scar if he had any abrasion there or fungal infection which however will not be like a line as you said. If you can send a photo to me I han guide you better. It is safe to apply imidil ointment twice daily for few weeks and if ungal it will disappear. You can remain in touch with me privately as your personal doctor.

Hi if your belly is lowering your self-confidence and giving you sleepless nights, here are the tips to give you flatter and fitter tummy. 1. Add fiber to your diet constipation distends your belly, add veggies and fruits to your daily diet to relieve you of constipation, reduce intakes of refined cereals like maida, noodles, pasta and whole grains instead add dalia and oats. This would relieve you of constipation and bloat to give you a flat tummy. 2. Decrease sodium intake sodium retains water in the body and hence your belly swells up, reduce intake of junk food as it contains a lot of sodium. Stop adding extra salt to dishes, also packaged and processed food contains a lot of salts so better avoid it. 3. Increase potassium foods rich in potassium help you get rid of balancing sodium, fruits are very good source of potassium, adding them to their daily diet not only provides this nutrient but also increase the fiber content of your daily intake 4. Avoid sugar alcohols we do not completely digest these low-calorie sweeteners usually found in flavoured low-calorie drinks, diabetic and sugar-free foods. Bacteria in a large intestine ferment during gas and distension so check food labels and avoid sorbitol, xylitol and lacitol. 5. Increase liquids drinking plenty of liquids helps flush out toxins from the body. Keep yourself hydrated with at least 8 glasses of water, also include lassi, coconut, water, lemon water in your daily routine. Make sure to include homemade soups only, as packaged soups are not that nutritious and contain added sodium in them. 6. Carbonated beverages and alcohol these give you extended bellies and your dream of flat tummy falls flat. Alcohol gives you empty calories with zero nutrition. 7. Probiotic curds include low fat curd in your diet regime as it contains live bacteria which tame bloating by increasing intestinal motility. 8. Method of cooking no doubt salads and sprouts are good for our health but if experience distension with them then saute, blanch or steam them also fried foods are best to be avoided not only because of their high-calorie content but also because frying leads to changes in oil composition which may result in bloating. 9. Avoid chewing gums and candies while chewing them air enters our digestive system, giving us feeling of bloating, also candies are zero in nutrition but contain loads of calories. Also, eat slowly as gulping down increases air passage to the digestive system 10. Individual tolerances some individuals are more intolerant to certain foods like radish, capsicum, tea, cauliflower etc, so with your own personal experience omit them from your diet.

All About Child Bedwetting

All About Child Bedwetting

Bedwetting, also known as Nocturnal Enuresis, can be referred to as the unintended and involuntary urination during sleep. Enuresis, being a medical term, stands for wetting, whether during the day in full clothing or at night in bed. For young children and infants, urination is certainly involuntary. It is worth note that children who wet their beds are not actually being disobedient or lazy.

Child Bedwetting can be classified into two types- Primary and Secondary

Primary Bedwetting

It has been continuing since the phase of early childhood without a halt; which means the child bed-wets every night.

Causes:

  1. The child is unable to hold urine over the length of the night.

  2. The child cannot wake up in case his or her bladder is almost full..

  3. The child has been taught poor toilet habits as he/she puts off urinating for hours during the day.

Secondary Bedwetting

Secondary bedwetting can be an indication of a repressed medical or emotional condition.

Causes:

  1. Infection of the urinary tract can cause irritation and pain along with a strong urge to urinate.

  2. People suffering from diabetes need to urinate frequently.

  3. Any injury or abnormality of the nervous system can take a toll on the neurological balance that fundamentally controls urination

  4. A peculiarity in the muscles or other organs that are involved in urination can be the reason behind bedwetting.

How to address the problem of bedwetting?

  1. Motivational Therapy: This involves parents motivating their children to reinforce their sense of self-control over bed-wetting.

  2. Moisture alarms that can detect wetness in the child’s trousers while sleeping and sound an alarm bell to wake the child up.

  3. Tricyclic anti-depressants that lower the amount of urine produced by the kidney.

My 9 and a half months old daughter is taking medicine as prescribed by the doctor for cough n cold. But each time she takes medicine, she immediately vomits. So my question is" if she vomits on taking medicine immediately, should I give the same again then"

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Must tell what medicines are given. If people just say" my child is taking medicines" how can anyone give an answer. Generally speaking, if the medicine is vomited out immediately before reaching stomach you surely can repeat and you must! to have any effect on the disease.

My 34 month old baby, was potty trained and was diaper free since she was 27 months. Lately, she refuses to do potty in pot and holds it for 2-3-4 days and ultimately she does it in her pants. I thought it's cause of constipation hard potty and it might be hurting her. I started with prunes, apples, cantaloupe and other fruits. She took whole grain food, daal, curd, veggies and has water regularly. Goes to pee in the pot and says she wants to pee. But potty, until I catch her trying to do potty, like her facial expressions changes, she does not do it in pot. Her stool is not hard nor soft but it's of normal shape and consistency. Please suggest me how I can resolve this problem. Thank you!

Your child probably has developed some fear of potty seat. It could be bcos of constipation and she is more comfortable in passing stool in standing position. Include lots of fibre in her diet sp fruits, vegs, oats etc. Give her lots of water and other fluids like coconut water, lassi lemon water, milk. Encourage her to try passing stool at the same time each morning. For a few days, you sit on a stool in the washroom in front of her when she is passing stool, holding her hand, talking to her, encouraging her, telling her that it's not going to hurt. She shd be ok within a few days. All the best.

try to eat foods that take longer to absorb, like whole grains, fibre rich foods. Avoid simple foods like watermelon, kharbooza etc. which give quick energy rush. During breastfeeding the body sugar goes low so it is natural to feel hungry faster
