My son  is 15 months old He is suffering in Krabbe disease, is this disease is curable what we do Pls. Suggest me.
Dear parent Although there is no cure for Krabbe disease is known, bone marrow transplantation has been shown to benefit cases early in the course of the disease. Generally, treatment for the disorder is symptomatic and supportive. Physical therapy may help maintain or increase muscle tone and circulation. Cord blood transplants have been successful in stopping the disease as long as they are given before overt symptoms appear. All the best.

Hello My baby is 11 months old and is been suffering from cough and cold since a week. I am giving him him .31 mg levolin and .25 mg budecort in neboliser 2-3 times a day. Atarax syrup 0.5 ml and montair granules are also prescribed by his pediatrician which he is taking regularly but there is no effect at all. There's a lot of wheezing sound from his nose and lungs. I am also giving him nasoclear spray occasionally if he is not able to sleep due to blocked nose. I give him warm water also for drinking 2-3 times a day. Please suggest what to do as I am very much worried due to his frequent recurrence of cold.

Nasoclear will not reduce block in nose and use Otrivin P nasal spray. Wheezing is s long term disease (chronic condition) and is made worse by allergy to dust, cols and may things around him. You may also need antibiotics to clear infection if there is infection. You can consult me here in the site personally with all details.

ITS REALLY GOOD THAT YOU WANT YOUR KID TO BE A GENIUS. TO BEGIN WITH, YOU SHOULD TAKE CARE OF HIS NUTRITION. EXCLUSIVE BREAST MILK FEEDING FOR FIRST SIX MONTHS OF LIFE. NOW, FOR HIS PERSONALITY, FIRST SEVEN YEARS OF HIS LIFE ARE VERY IMPORTANT. THESE YEARS WILL DEFINE HIS PERSONALITY. KIDS LEARN MORE THROUGH OBSERVATION IN THIS PERIOD. WHICH MEANS, YOU NEED TO GIVE A VERY HEALTHY EMOTIONAL ENVIRONMENT. YOU NEED DISPLAY THE BEHAVIOR LIKE TRUE GENIUSES HAVE. HOPE THIS HELPS. ALL THE BEST

Thumb sucking is not abnormal in that age. Dont try to forcibly stop it. It's a sort of gratification. If you're giving bottle feeding better to stop it.

Bedwetting - 7 Possible Reasons Behind It

Bedwetting - 7 Possible Reasons Behind It

Bedwetting or nocturnal enuresis, refers to the unintentional passage of urine during sleep. Enuresis is the medical term for wetting, whether in the clothing during the day or in bed at night. Another name for enuresis is urinary incontinence. For infants and young children, urination is involuntary. Wetting is normal for them. Most children achieve some degree of bladder control by 4 years of age. Daytime control is usually achieved first, while nighttime control comes later.

The age at which bladder control is expected varies considerably. Some parents expect dryness at a very early age, while others not until much later. Such a time line may reflect the culture and attitudes of the parents and caregivers.

Factors that affect the age at which wetting is considered a problem include the following:

  1. The child's gender: Bedwetting is more common in boys.
  2. The child's development and maturity
  3. The child's overall physical and emotional health. Chronic illness and/or emotional and physical abuse may predispose to bedwetting.

Causes

No one knows for sure what causes bed-wetting, but various factors may play a role:

  1. A small bladder: Your child's bladder may not be developed enough to hold urine produced during the night.
  2. Inability to recognize a full bladder: If the nerves that control the bladder are slow to mature, a full bladder may not wake your child, especially if your child is a deep sleeper.
  3. A hormone imbalance: During childhood, some kids don't produce enough anti-diuretic hormone (ADH) to slow nighttime urine production.
  4. Stress: Stressful events, such as becoming a big brother or sister, starting a new school, or sleeping away from home, may trigger bed-wetting.
  5. Urinary tract infection: This infection can make it difficult for your child to control urination.
  6. Sleep apnea: Sometimes bed-wetting is a sign of obstructive sleep apnea, a condition in which the child's breathing is interrupted during sleep.
  7. Diabetes: For a child who's usually dry at night, bed-wetting may be the first sign of diabetes.

A structural problem in the urinary tract or nervous system. Rarely, bed-wetting is related to a defect in the child's neurological system or urinary system.

Symptoms

  1. Wetting during the day
  2. Frequency, urgency, or burning on urination
  3. Straining, dribbling, or other unusual symptoms with urination
  4. Cloudy or pinkish urine, or blood stains on underpants or pajamas
  5. Soiling, being unable to control bowel movements
  6. Constipation

Most kids are fully toilet trained by age 5, but there's really no target date for developing complete bladder control. Between the ages of 5 and 7, bed-wetting remains a problem for some children. After 7 years of age, a small number of children still wet the bed.

When to see a doctor: Most children outgrow bed-wetting on their own, but some need a little help. In other cases, bed-wetting may be a sign of an underlying condition that needs medical attention.

Consult your child's doctor if: 

  1. Your child still wets the bed after age 7
  2. Your child starts to wet the bed after a few months or more of being dry at night
  3. Bed-wetting is accompanied by painful urination, unusual thirst, pink or red urine, hard stools, or snoring
  4. Self-Care at Home

Here are some tips for helping your child stop wetting the bed. These are techniques that are most often successful

  1. Reduce evening fluid intake.
  2. The child should urinate in the toilet before bedtime.
  3. A system of sticker charts and rewards works for some children.
  4. Make sure the child has safe and easy access to the toilet.

Some believe that you should avoid using diapers or pull-ups at home because they can interfere with the motivation to wake up and use the toilet. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

My son is 7 years old he often get boils on his bums, he is very fussy about food and just after his birth he was put on antibiotics for 10 days, and he didn't even cried after birth because of my high blood pressure. He waz born unconscious. But recovered later. The Dr. Recommended him for a sugar test, is there a chance of suffering from the disease.

MBBS MD DCH, Dch
Pediatrician, Muzaffarpur
Keep the area clean Compress the boils Many times boils resolve on its own. No need to take antibiotics unless boil is deep rooted with inflammation of soft tissue. Please do not take antibiotics without advice of your doctor. Food fad is common in children. I am pretty sure your child does not suffer from any serious disease. Best wishes

Mustard oil is very strong for baby skin, so it can causes rash and skin burn so don't use it. If baby is cranky because of itching or burning use caladril lotion local application. You can use coconut oil, olive oil etc for massage.

If baby sleeps whole day, breast feed him about every 2-3 hourly in day time then probably baby shall not cry whole night and shall be satisfied in night with intermittent feeding too. This shall keep him calm in night as he shall not be hungry and sleep well. Take care of his comfort too. Cry in night is due to not satisfactory feeding in day time and may be wet.

Sexual Abuse In Children

Bsc(Med.), DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery), NDDY(Naturopathy and Yoga)
Homeopath, Mohali
Sexual Abuse In Children

Sexual abuse of children may sound very scary and degrading, but the truth is it is a very prevalent problem. As much we may not want to believe, the number of boys and girls who are sexually abused, and that too by close family and friends is very high. This may be difficult to digest, but is the truth. The sexual abuse in male and female children is 50% in each group which is again unbelievable but true.

What is considered child sexual abuse?

Child sexual abuse includes touching and non-touching activity. Some examples of touching activity include:

  1. touching a child's genitals or private parts for sexual pleasure.
  2. making a child touch someone else's genitals, play sexual games or have sex putting objects or body parts (like fingers, tongue or penis) inside the vagina, in the mouth or in the anus of a child for sexual pleasure.

The thing to ponder, however, is that people who abuse children have a deeper problem. This could be due to a combination of social and psychological issues that the person is facing. Often helping identify the underlying problem could be a solution to the problem too, but this is rarely done. If you think a child could be subjected to abuse, look out for the following symptoms.

  1. A feeling of guilt or shame.
  2. Irritability and anger with minimal reasons.
  3. Mood swings, often uncommon in children.
  4. Feeling very isolated and sad.
  5. Very anxious and angry.
  6. Symptoms of withdrawal, not wanting to be left alone.
  7. Sleeplessness.
  8. Fatigue and pain in the back, legs.
  9. Loss of appetite, energy.
  10. Bruises (look out for these, which may not be in visible areas).

How to handle?

Given the fact that the offender is in close family and/or friends circle, the suspicion levels are quite low.

  1. The first step, therefore, is to open up and talk with either your parents or someone close.
  2. Look for support groups which can be very helpful.
  3. Do not be isolated though the urge is very strong.
  4. Build a daily schedule to ensure your routine continues (studies, work, etc.).
  5. Focus on exercise or other passions as they help you deviate your mind.
  6. Be sure to not be alone with the offender, stay in a group.
  7. Give out a strong message saying it is not acceptable, and do not keep quiet.

Homoeopathic remedies:

Homoeopathy can come rescue of the offender all well as the victim. If we see according to the point of view of who committed the crime, many reasons may come to the light and we can be treated accordingly. Usually, these criminals have a very painful and sad childhood. This could lead them to commit a crime like child abuse. 

The following are the medicines to treat such people with anti-social behaviour-

  1. Aur.
  2. Bar-C.
  3. Hyoscyamus.
  4. Stramonium.
  5. Merc.
  6. Tarentula.
  7. Med.
  8. Nux V.
  9. Syphilinear.

There are certain homoeopathic medicines which are helpful in the treatment of children who are victimized. The most common symptom is nightmares.

  1. Calc.carb. 
  2. Aloes. 
  3. Phosphorous. 
  4. Cechris. 
  5. Sepia. 
  6. Staphysagria. 

For treatment for actual physical and mental symptoms of the victim child, following homoeopathic medicines may help:

  1. Aconite. 
  2. Ignatia. 
  3. Arnica. 
  4. Staphysagria. 
  5. Calendula. 
  6. Nat. mur. 

Homeopathy is a safe and effective way to treat the victims as well as the culprits of sexual abuse. It focuses on the way patients have reacted to events and the personality of the patient. It helps to bring complete harmony of physical, mental and social well being. 

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a homeopath.
