No, chicken pox and mmr are not same. They are two different vaccines. There is however, no harm if you have given a second dose of chicken pox by mistake. You an take her after a gap of one month (compulsory between 2 vaccines) and give her the mmr vaccine. No harm done but don't miss the mmr vaccine.

Hi lybrate-user your child is 50 days old which is less than 3 month of age, he is not very much immune to disease and so the risk of serious bacterial infection is high in such cases. So I suggest you to kindly suggest your doctor again if the fever is above 100.5 f. If it is below that and baby is doing well gaining weight active and alert we usually do not consider it a fever so no need of doing anything.

This is normal physiological jaundice and is seen in many babies and based on the severity phototherapy is the treatment and the is nothing to be scared. You can use coconut oils for massage though such messages are not very important or needed.

Feeding tips for baby between 6-12 months of age

Try variety of foods as by this age increasing the variety the appetite/palatability improves.Add ghee generously if tolerated to increase the calorie value of diet.In compare to protein and carbohydrate calorie value of fat is thrice.
Give at least one katori serving at a time of- mashed roti/bread/biscuit mixed in sweetened undiluted milk or mashed roti/rice/bread/dosa mixed with thick dal with added ghee/oil or khichadi with added ghee.Add cooked vegetables in the servings.You can also give dalia/suji ka halwa/kheer prepared in milk or any cereal porridge cooked in milk.You can give mashed boiled potato also.
Give banana,papaya,cheeko,mango to meet the vitamin's requirement.
Give these servings 3 times per day. Feed the baby in your lap with your hands.Don't force.If needed give small amount and increase the frequency of feeds.

If your wife was fully vaccinated against rabies 1 year ago, she is fully protected against rabies and not required other course for about 5 years when booster dose of rabies vaccine is needed. Precautionary single dose of anti rabies vaccine rabipur can be taken.

Probably maxtra is trade name. Generic is convenient for proper advice. Anyway if maxtra is antibiotic, it has no role in Common cold n cough. U can instill saline nasal drop in each nostrils 3 to 4 times in a day n can give antihistamine.

Above report is more in favor of Iron/ multi nutritional deficiency anemia. Blood transfusion increases Hb temporarily. Intermittent fall of Hb may be due to interrupted treatment and lack of nutritional diet as indicated by constant wt at 9 kg. To improve his wt and normalize Hb, give him Iron, B Complex, Vit C and other micro nutrients and continue at least for about 3 months after Hb comes to normal, add oil/ ghee in his nutritious diet for wt gain.
