My son is 15 years old. He is suffering from lymphangioma by birth. Initially it was concentrated at upper lip. Cured by surgery. Now it has spread at right eye and there is bleeding at occ. Ational times with some swelling. Is there available an effective treatment for this disease in ayurveda or any other treatment

No medical care has been proven effective for lymphangiomas. Lymphangioma is not responsive to radiation therapy or steroids. However, propranolol represents a potential new option, which may be of benefit even for intractable diffuse lymphangiomatosis. Antibiotics are given for secondary cellulitis.

Hi, technically there are no medication to treat Autism. However, diet control helps in having right nutrition for the child. If you are sure of the diagnosis which will be generally done by a psychologist then plan the rehabilitation with Speech Language Pathologist, Occupational Therapist, psychologist, to improve sensory motor, behavioural, social and communication skills. Everyone plays an important role. Only when one says "no another professional will not help or would not be required right now" then they are not doing justice to the child. I suggest as a parent take opinion of all the specialist and decide which one makes sense to you as your are the decision maker for the child.

The main cause is separation anxiety as you leave her with the maid for the daytime and you have to comfort her when ever you can and be with her all the time when you are at home. She will be fine as she grows up

Respiratory Disease

MBBS, DNB - Pulmonary Medicine, Allergy & Sleep Disorders
Pulmonologist, Noida

Hello and a very good day for all the Lybrate users, I am Dr Shobhit Bansal. I am chest physician, which are also called as pulmonologist that means I take care of your respiratory tract along with the diseases related to the respiratory tract, we also look after sleep and energy disorders. So what I am dealing or talking today is the 6 Cardinal symptoms of the respiratory system, 6 Cardinal diseases, symptoms of the respiratory diseases and it is not so that these Cardinal symptoms are present single. These can overlap and one should, whenever, any of these Cardinal symptoms are present or an overlap between these Cardinal symptoms is present. Then one should always consult a pulmonologist. Since these Cardinal symptoms reflect some or other form of the disease which is taking place in your respiratory system. Since we are dealing in the respiratory system, first, I would like to tell you a little bit about our respiratory system, it is divided into two parts the upper airways and the lower airways. The upper airway or the upper part of the respiratory system starts from the tip of the nose and it goes until the larynx, whereas the lower part of the respected that starts from the larynx and it goes until the lungs. All these symptoms which are basically these 6 Cardinal symptoms of the respective track, could either be because of the abnormality in the upper airway or they could be present because of the abnormality in the lower airways. So what are these 6 Cardinal symptoms for which you should always approach a pulmonologist which is a chest physician? No. 1 is a cough, cough yaani ki khansi aana. Now we all know and we also on the television also and even big-big celebrities these days tell you about a cough and if the duration of a cough is more than 15 days or so, then you should always visit a doctor. Now, but we should always know that what all could be the causes of a cough or is this cough really serious. A cough can arise from the upper airway or it can arise from the lower airway, if it arises from the upper airway, it could be the rhinitis, it could be the sinusitis, and it could be the Bronchitis or pharyngitis or laryngitis. But if it arises from the lower Railway then mostly there is pneumonia, tuberculosis, lower respiratory tract infection or some other form of diseases including interstitial lung diseases likewise. So and the next the cough could either be with the sputum production or it could be dry. When should we go to a doctor, now if somebody is having cough and he is taking warm water to drink taking, warm gargles, taking up a little bit of cough suppressant and if a cough does not go even after 3 days then it is always better to approach a doctor, by because they could be causes which could be a little serious maybe there is some underline pneumonia or there could be some sinusitis which needs to be treated. So always keep in mind that if a cough is more than 3 days and it is having sputum production or if it is not going, despite taking mild medications one or saline gargle, warm water to drink, steam inhalation, that means the home based remedies. If a cough is not going then one should definitely approach justification, this is the first cardinal symptom. The second cardinal symptom is the sputum production, yaani ki bulgum aana, what happens is whenever person develops cough, there is some underline disease and then along with the cough, the person also develops sputum, yaani ki bulgum aata hai. Production of sputum itself is not a serious disease, but if the sputum is foul smelly, if it is excessive in production or if it is a discoloured one that was in there it is yellow colour or with a rusty tinge or with a reddish view, then one should always consult pulmonologist. What are the causes of sputum production, first in the foremost causes the pneumonia then it could either be bacterial pneumonia or it could be tubercular pneumonia. The Other causes of sputum production include malignancy chronic bronchitis and so forth. So we are done with the two another third cardinal symptom of the respiratory tract is hemotypsis, hemoptysis means coming out of blood from the respiratory tract, yaani ki khansi mein se khoon aana. Any form of blood coming out from the respiratory tract is always a serious condition and one should always consult a pulmonologist. You may get a chest x ray done, you may get some basic other investigations done to rule out few conditions which might produce blood from the sputum and what are those conditions, either it could be tuberculosis, either could be trauma to the chest or it could malignancy. But there could be other causes as well. So any amount of blood even it is 1 ml if it is coming out of the airways one should always set pulmonologist. The fourth condition which requires immediate intervention, immediate attention is shortness of breath. If the person is feeling short of breath, that means normally we breath, we do not feel as if you are breathing. But when a person is short of breath, he feels difficulty while breathing. It is a sort of laboured breathing, saans lene mein dikkat hoti hai. So there are many conditions causing difficulty in breathing, either it could be cardiac or it could be respiratory. As a pulmonary physician, we mainly work on respiratory conditions which include chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, asthma, interstitial lung diseases, pulmonary edema and sometimes pneumonia can also cause shortness of breath. Any form of shortness of breath, which occurs when a person to do any exertional activity any of the exertional activity and if you are feeling short of breath saans foolti hai thoda bhi kaam karne se, jo pehle se jayada hai then one should always approach chest physician or a pulmonologist. The fourth cardinal symptoms is production of wheez, wheez is whistling sensation from the respiratory tract message, saans mein se seetion jaisi aawaz aana jisko hum weez kehte hain. Most of the physicians and pulmonologist feel that if person wheezes it is asthma, but there could be other condition also in which a person may produce weez, which includes interstitial lung diseases and other obstructive airway diseases like foreign body or tumor in the respiratory tract. So if a person is having weez and is facing difficulty breathing, one should always approach a pulmonologist. The fifth condition which requires immediate intervention or is one of the Cardinal symptom is the chest pain, chest pain should always be taken seriously. Why a chest pain should be taken seriously because there are many conditions causing chest pain, but two types of chest pain need to be seriously taken. One which is a retrosternal that means is present in the middle of the chest and giving you are sharp stabbing feeling. Acute piercing pain hai, agar bahut joro se pain hai chati mein, so that could be of cardiology, you should always visit a cardiologist. But if it is aching pain, dard ho raha hai, side mein ho raha hai, mehsoos ho raha hai bhri-bhri pan halka-halka dard, it is a chest pain of pulmonology, one should always visit a pulmonologist. What are the conditions causing chest pain of pulmonaryology, it is pneumonia, tuberculosis, melingnancy, pural infision and there a lot of conditions causing chest pain of pulmonaryology. So we have talked about all these kind and symptoms of the respiratory tract, hope you people got aware with this and would definitely like to visit a pulmonologist. You can also consult me, I am a chest physician again and I sit in the Dipakshi hospital which is located in Sector 33 Noida. I am usually present from 6 pm till 9 P.M daily and Sundays morning 9 a.m. till 2 p.m.

Thank you for watching, hope you people got further aware with the respiratory conditions.

Hello dear Ashok Yadav , hi Warm welcome to Lybrate.com I have evaluated your query for your baby thoroughly . * Post surgery NICU is different than routine NICU where all types of infected babies can be there , the post surgical NICU have only & only operated babies , so there are very minimal to nil chances of other cross infections when taken care properly by the institute . * Once your baby recovers from the surgical NICU , demand for isolation room in shifting era so that will give your baby best results . Hope this clears your query . Wishing your toddler fine recovery . Welcome for any further assistance . Regards take care .

Fever In Children - Parenting Tips For It!

Fever In Children - Parenting Tips For It!

Fever in children is a very common phenomenon, but still parents absolutely dread it. It can completely break your heart to suddenly see a happy, healthy child not getting up from the bed. Your first instinct when that thermometer crosses that dreaded 100 degrees F is to rush to the doctor for an immediate cure. That is probably the best remedy as a doctor can often catch additional signs of any disease that you may miss out on. Beyond that, here is how you can understand about fever in children better and how you can help. Technically, your child has fever when the body temperature crosses 100.4 degrees F.
 
Some children manage to stay active even then, but slowly get bogged down with muscle pain or other accompanying symptoms like cold, diarrhea, vomiting etc. 

  • Causes: Fever is normally caused by the body's reaction to fighting an infection. (That is why most doctors say it's a sign of a robust immune system). When the body's natural defense system is stimulated, the core inner temperature rises, thereby making it harder for the bacteria and viruses that caused the infection to survive. Most fever subside on their own but that's a tough thing to accept as a parent who only wants to see their child up and running as soon as possible.
  • What you can do: Keep an eye on that temperature obviously. You need to find a doctor the moment the fever crosses the threshold temperature (101+ for less than three months olds, 102+ for 3-6 month olds and over 102 for older children). You should also consult a doctor if there are accompanying symptoms or if you've given a dose of Paracetamol but the fever shows no sign of subsiding. It might happen at midnight and beyond, when no regular pediatrician is unavailable. So it is best to find out which hospital has an emergency center capable of handling such eventualities near your home. 
  • Fever medications: It is super important for parents to know that fever medications must be given in the correct dose at the right times based on a child's weight, age, and overall health. An overdose can lead you straight to the emergency room. Don't mix a cold/cough medication that also has a fever medication in it. 
  • Home remedies: Encourage your child to drink as much fluids as possible to prevent dehydration. Some doctors advise complete body sponging to bring down the temperature and this can be done as long as it doesn't cool the body too suddenly (there are contradictory notes on this practice, so do consult you doctor before your do this).

 As parent, it is important you equip yourself with the right knowledge before you provide treatment to your child.
