I understand your concerns for your baby. Try to retract it gently on daily basis for a week or so. Donot be forceful. Normlly one should not retract before age of 2 years &It is normal till 2 years of age. If you are not successful even after 10-12 days then it needs to be operated. The condition is known as phimosis &operation is circumcision. Regards.

A 10 month old showing temper tantrum is unlikely. A temper tantrum can mean something different depending on your child’s age.

Your baby is doing extremely well. She has gained appropriate weight. Please do not force feed the child. The rate of growth is slowed down in second half of first year thus requirement also goes down. Get her hb and routine urine exam to rule out anemia and urinary tract infection. Regards

The tiny tots must use a toothbrush with a small rounded brush head and soft bristles. It helps in cleaning their milk teeth thoroughly.

This is normal to pass 3-4 stool per day. Nothing to worry. If baby is passing loose and watery stool then consult to pediatrician.

If baby is gaining wt normally, need not to worry. Burping is the solution of vomiting (regurgitation).

Hydrocele in Children - Can it Be Treated?

Hydrocele in Children -  Can it Be Treated?

Sometimes, the groin and scrotum swell due to the buildup of water like fluid in one or both the testicles. This is known as hydrocele. This condition is not at all painful, but can be uncomfortable at times. In newborn babies, there is an opening between the abdomen and the scrotum; it naturally closes with the passage of time, therefore it’s generally nothing to worry about.

Symptoms of hydrocele:

  1. Scrotum can get enlarged at times

  2. Swelling and redness are common in hydrocele

  3. Also, pressure can be felt at the base of your child’s penis

  4. Pain doesn’t normally occur but in some cases, might occur as your child gets older

How does in occur in babies?

When you are in the last stage of your pregnancy, the baby’s testicles descend from its abdomen to the scrotum. So the fluid in the sac stays within the scrotum and the opening closes naturally after some time.   

Can it be treated?

This condition is not usually hazardous to health and is treated usually, if there is immense pain. It can also cut out the blood supply; in this case, it has to be treated as soon as possible. If your child experiences such symptoms, you should take him to a doctor for a physical examination. During this examination, the doctor will shine light near the scrotum.

If it appears as a solid mass, then the assumption is that there is no watery fluid; hence, hydrocele has not occurred. There is a procedure in which the hydrocele is burst open with a small needle, but sometimes, it might relapse. In such a case, surgery is the only reliable option. These symptoms can also persist if your child is diagnosed with hernia. Hence, in such a situation, a surgery would solve both the conditions. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an urologist and ask a free question.

Treating Conjunctivitis With Homeopathy

BHMS

Treating Conjunctivitis With Homeopathy

Conjunctivitis is a medical condition that is marked by redness in the eyes owing to the inflammation of the conjunctiva, which is the membrane covering the white part of the eye. The condition is further characterized by the discharge of yellowish pus fluid from the corner of the eye. This condition, which is essentially an infection, can occur to people of all age brackets. 

Causes and Symptoms:

Conjunctivitis can be caused due to several reasons namely allergies, irritants, bacterial and viral infections, among others. Apart from the redness in the eye, some other apparent symptoms of conjunctivitis are: 

  1. Thin and watery discharge in viral conjunctivitis 
  2. Thick, mucous like discharge ranging from yellow to green in case of bacterial conjunctivitis
  3. Sticky eyelids
  4. Increased reactivity to light 
  5. Blurred or foggy vision
  6. Nasal discharges 

It is difficult to distinguish between viral, allergic and bacterial conjunctivitis. Different fields of medicine prescribe treatments according to the cause of the condition. Although subtle differences, such as thick and thin discharges can be observed, in Homeopathy the cause is not that important. 

Homeopathic medicines are natural and highly effective. The medications, which are prescribed in Homeopathy can more than manage the discharges, swelling, the sandy sensation and redness in the eyes. Homeopathic medicines are effective when the condition causes the eye to get dry, red, congested and swollen. Bathing the eyes with sterilized salt water is also a popular method of treating the infection. In addition to these, Homeopathic doctors also provide tips to curb the likelihood of further complications. Removing your contact lenses while treatment and cleaning your spectacles on a regular basis, if you wear any, are duly recommended.

Ideally undescended testis should be surgically replaced within say before 1 year of age. After birth if testis is not in the say then chances of malignant changes increase with every passing month. Initially hormonal therapy may be attempted but if no descent then surgery recommended before 1 year age. It is to be noted with late replacement of testis there's three risk *risk of testicular malignancy *risk of infertility *psychological distress to the child review urgently with a pediatric surgeon and get him treated as soon as possible. Hope this helps.

Hi sir, for allergies prevention is better then treatment, change in weather might trouble the kid. In this case you can start antiallergic (antihistaminic) syrup for some time thanks.
