My ward (child) is 13 year old having weight 26 kg only. His growth (both weight & hight) is not not normal as per age. His diet is (one chapati in lunch & dinner) very less & feel uneasy if try to eat more. Please suggest what shold I do? I am very anxious for my ward health.

General Physician,
Your child is not very much under weight. Some children eat less and do not put on much weight. In fact obesity is a leading problem in childhood. If we make sure he has no underlying diseases nothing need to be worried. There' s appetite stimulant and he can be given nutritional supplement. More can be personally discussed. If interested you can come to personal chat online. Regards

3 to 4 times stool in a day is not abnormal if he is active. It may be due to his eating habit. Just change it. He can take milk as much as he likes and so the meals per day. Don't stick to 2 meals and over feed. If his wt is about 11 kg at 18 months, it means he is taking sufficient calories.

Please stop bottle feed and milk all together. Give food, proper adult one else let her stay hungry. Sup pixit 5ml twice a day for five day and then 5ml once a day for one month. Pilex ointment three times a day for one month to be applied at anus and insert the nozzle inside the anus and press the tube. This will relieve her but proper food will cure her esp vegitables and fruits. Honey, munnaka, saunf can also be added to the diet.

It appears if your son is suffering from asthma. For acute illness, hospitalization becomes necessary. You may add vit. A 60.000 units daily for a week which may reduce severity of illness.

If he is bottle fed it is a reason and you avoid bottle fed and feed from spoon. If the baby is not feeding it is (can be) a sign of infection) and need check up.

If there is any delay in vaccination of kids, is there any harm to her?

DNB (Pediatrics), MBBS
Pediatrician,
Delay does not do harm per say. But increases the risk of disease. And when given at delayed timing, level of protection offered by the vaccine may be suboptimal.

She has white discharge problem for many years. She has taken a lot of treatment. But she did not get well. She has a child of 7 years old. Now she wants one more child. Is there any problem in getting pregnant. If so please suggest me the right treatment.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
White discharge is common. And if your gynaecologist has not suggested any medicines there is no disease like fungal infection, you surely can have a child.

Sometimes small amount of vomits may occur even after burping. It is common in this age. Try to place a folded towel under her shoulders so that the regurgitation of milk is reduced. IPV is mandatory, yes. But you can receive it whenever available. 2 doses within 2 years of age is sufficient for immunity.
