Hello. May be he has an allergy with the product. This is too early to start such food other than mother's milk. Give him jeera and ajwain boiled water 3 to 4 drops every 1 hour once. He will improve.

Need not worry this is a common problem in children of this age group. You can use dulcolax paediatric per rectal suppository, which you need to insert in the anus (rectal opening) better to get it done under supervision, take help of a nurse. You can use duphalac syrup also.

Most babies have this and it is due lack of opening of nose and it will open as they grow up . You can use saline nasal drops to keep the nose cool

One year and two month old baby is not speaking yet , only aaaa & un un speaking
Pls suggest.
Kids by the age of 12-15 months should have a wide range of speech sounds in their babbling (like p, b, m, d, or n), begin to imitate and approximate sounds and words modeled by family members, and typically say one or more words (not including" mama" and" dada") spontaneously. You can do speech therapy exercise. For few months. And constitutional homeopathic medicine will give you best result.

Vaccine mut be give on specified date, but if its not possible due such unavoidable instances then, need to worry. Let your child recover completely, then you see your pediatrician. Vaccination delay is not a serious problem, for few vaccines, but as far as possible it should and must be given once your baby is healthy. Kindly visit your pediatrician, as he will guide you better. Happy Parenting!

My daughter is unable to suck milk from my breast as there is less milk please hlp me how I increase my breast milk.

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
Eat healthy food and stop worrying. If child is growing properly as depicted in normal growth charts and if she is playful, there is no reason to think of inadequate breast secretion. You did not mention age and weight of the child. It is difficult to address your query based only on your perception.

You are passing through the age when sudden spurt height takes place. Now you must concentrate on your diet also which should include milk and well cooked in oil or ghee nourishing diet. Veg diet is more than sufficient to keep healthy. Take Vitamin D 60,000 units once in a month for 6 months + Calcium 1,000 mg daily.

No relation. Seizure due to high fever only may be there which usually subsides by 6 yrs. Do not worry for that. But give prophylaxis clobazam as your child specialist gave for short duration. But get done one EEG (electro encephalo gram) to rule our seizure disorder for which prolonged medication needed. Do not worry about the surgery.

Depending on the cause of the mouth ulcers, the treatment has to be targeted. Some of the commonly used homeopathic medicines for acute and chronic oral ulcers are Borax, Nitric Acid, Carbolic acid, Mercurious solubus, Phosphorus, Arsenic album, Carbo animalis, Kali choloratum, etc. Homeopathic treatment is strongly suggested for all cases of mouth ulcers. you can consult me online for homoeopathic treatment without side effects.

Know About Delayed Puberty

MD - General Medicine, DM - Endocrinology, MBBS
Endocrinologist, Delhi
Know About Delayed Puberty

Puberty results from activation of gonads (testes in boys/ ovaries in girls) by pituitary hormones LH and FSH. Activated gonads produce sexual hormones (testosterone in boys and estrogen in girls ) which are responsible for gender specific physical changes at puberty along with behaviour changes. Testosterone in boys is responsible for hair growth over pubic area and face with maturation of genital organs, breaking of voice, development of muscular and skeletal system. Similarly, estrogen in girls is responsible for breast development, maturation of genital organs with feminisation of body. Bone maturation with rapid height gain is seen at puberty both in boys and girls. Various systemic and hormonal disorders can result in either late or early puberty. 

LATE PUBERTY - 

Most of the boys show signs of puberty latest by age of 14 years and most girls start showing signs of puberty latest by age of 13 years. The earliest sign of puberty in boys is enlargement of testes and in girls is height spurt/breast development. When boys older than 14 years and girls older than 13 years don't have any signs of puberty it is called delayed puberty. 

CAUSES OF DELAYED PUBERTY - 

  1. Constitutional delay is most common cause of delayed puberty. The constitutional delay means child is not having any illness and he is going to develop puberty spontaneously at later age. But diagnosis of this condition can be made only after physical examination and investigations so that other causes of delayed puberty are ruled out. 
  2. Functional hypogonadotropic Hypopogonadism - Delayed but spontaneous puberty develops. This condition can be seen in systemic illnesses like chronic infections, poor nutritional status etc. 
  3. Hypogonadotropic Hypogonadism - Disorders of pituitary gland result in low LH and FSH so that testes/ovaries are not stimulated and sex hormone is not produced. This can be caused by various genetic disorders, brain tumours, head injury, brain radiation etc. 
  4. Hypergonadotropic Hypogonadism - In this scenario, LH and FSH levels are normal but gonadal are not able to produce sex hormones resulting in delayed puberty. 

CONSEQUENCES OF DELAYED PUBERTY - 
The absence of age specific pubertal changes cause anxiety and distress in children and their parents. These children may develop low self-esteem and are teased by their peers. Along with the poor development of physical signs of puberty, fertility is also affected in hypogonadism. And most importantly, delayed puberty can be the symptom of serious underlying illness like intracranial tumours etc. These children deserve medical attention to get best results. 

INVESTIGATIONS - 
Serum testosterone/estradiol with LH and FSH is done to find out where is defect i.e. whether at the level of pituitary gland or at the level of testes/ovaries. Further investigations depend on levels LH, FSH, estradiol/testosterone. Other useful investigations include prolactin, T4, TSH, ray hand for bone age, ultrasound pelvis, MRI pituitary gland etc. 

TREATMENT - 
After diagnosis is established, Testosterone/estrogen replacement should be started to boys older than 14 year and girls older than 13 years respectively. Hormone replacement is very effective and usually safe. In adulthood those with hypogonadotropic hypogonadism can be treated with LH and FSH to produce sperms/ eggs so that they can achieve fertility. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can ask a free question.

Eczema in Infants: What You Should Know?

MBBS, MD - Dermatology , Venereology & Leprosy
Dermatologist, Jaipur
Eczema in Infants: What You Should Know?

Are you observing red, crusty patches on the surface of your infant’s skin during his/her first month after birth? This is an indication of infant eczema. It is a dry, itchy skin condition which may occur on any part of your child’s body and is commonly found on the cheeks, legs and arms. This condition is sometimes confused with cradle cap, which is another skin condition.

Causes-

Eczema usually runs in families and is hereditary. If you have eczema, it is likely that your child may have it too. Several problems in the skin barrier allow germs inside and moisture to go out. This is a common cause of eczema in infants. The condition occurs when the body makes insufficient fatty cells or ceramides. When there is not enough of these, the skin loses water and becomes extremely dry.

Does Eczema In Infants Go Away By Itself?

In many cases, infant eczema goes away on its own and most infants outgrow the condition by the time they are ready for school. However, some children do get eczema during their adulthood. This may continue for years without specific symptoms. Such children also tend to have dry skin.

Treatment-

Here are some home treatment options for infant eczema:

  1. You should use moisturisers on your child. Moisturisers containing ceramides are a good option, which are available at all over-the-counter (OTC) stores by prescription. You can also opt for good moisturisers, fragrance-free creams and ointments like petroleum jelly. This helps in keeping your baby’s skin in retaining natural moisture. Apply these after a bath.

  2. A lukewarm bath is beneficial for your child. It helps in hydrating and cooling the skin. The water should not be very hot and the bath should not exceed 10 minutes. You can also add oatmeal soaking products to your baby’s scrub for soothing itchiness.

  3. You must use mild and unscented body soaps for your baby. This is because perfumed, antibacterial and deodorant soaps are rough for your baby’s skin. Scrub some soap on areas of your child’s body where there is dirt, such as the genitals, feet and hand. Do not rub or pat his/her skin.

  4. Several medicines are also used for the treatment of infant eczema. These include hydrocortisone creams and ointments, which help in easing inflammation and itching. You should not apply these medicines in excess as they can thin the skin on the affected areas.

You should consult a doctor on observing any signs or symptoms of eczema on your child’s skin. This will help in proper diagnosis of the problem and an early treatment plan will prevent further deterioration of the symptoms.
