From early childhood, I have severe hearing loss in my right ear. I do not remember whether it was from birth or was a result of some hitting done on my right ear by one of the bullies (i remember the incident remotely, though can not attribute the hearing loss to that). My left ear is perfect and am a healthy guy of 42 years doing very well professionally and part of top management in one of the reputed companies. I had at the age of 18 years went for a ent check up where they diagnosis as severe hearing loss in the right ear. However, when I put in a earphone in my right ear and tightly close my left ear to close any sound, I can remotely hear, but only very light sounds. My query is, can I try to recover my right ear hearing or leave it? Is there any hope of recovery? Though you might say it needs to be checked, but what do you make out first cut from the details that I have provided? Now a days with so much advances in med sciences, I am hoping you cd help me with your valuable advice and way forward.

hi, if its severe loss or damage to your inner ear unfortunately it cannot be reveresed. like you mentioned in the comment that science have advanced to the extent to help the patient to hear better with a better hearing aid and customised solutions as per the reqyirment of the patient. if the loss is creating a serious impact on your lifestyle or ur profession would suggest you to go for a good hearing device. if you are shy to wear a external device you have various models which can fit inside your ear as well and that may give a bit of sigh from your condition

I have already replied ur same query in which age of baby wasn't mentioned. Since baby is 1.5 years old and must be taking all nutritious diet, it may have not much impact on baby development. But it is advisable to consult doctor for ur own benefits.

My son was clapped by his dad on my sons back and thrown on chair after he cut his sisters hair. I recall my son crawling away and his dad running after him and clapping him on his back some more. Another occasion he put a whole pepper in his mouth because he was annoyed by his son. My son was diagnosed by PTSD. My son is petrified of seeing his dad and cries at the mention of seeing him. He talks of running away. As a result he pees and messes himself up. His dad wants to see him. His dad has admitted to having a anger problem. Do I force my son to go visit with him. I am concerned about his emotional wellbeing. What am I to do.

Hi! Your hubby's behavior is very rough and rude towards his son. One thing your hubby and you have to realize kids are naughty these days you need to change them affectionately and not through being very strict. Actually your hubby's behavior would affect your son mentally. It is advisable to keep Dad and son separately for some years until your son gets recovered from this incident completely. Because your son may turn to be a fearful guy in future either in society or college or in any situation because of his Dad's rude behavior. You can actually console your son, comfort him and change his mindset to a more social Behavior. You need to throw away the fear from his mind and make him more bold. You can make him participate in some extracurricular activities like sports etc to make him lead normal life. Try to be his friendly mother so that he succeeds in life. You need to make your son more friendly, frank and bold towards others. So let him be separate from his Dad for few years till he grows big enough to face situation. I do not know what is your son's age but I believe he is very young to handle his Dad's behavior. Take care of your son. Be friendly and make him a perfect guy in life to succeed. With regards, Psy. MSV.

Hi my children s are active and healthy. My son is 7years weight 20kg. My daughter 9years 30kg. Just want clear that they are in normal weight or abnormal any healthy drinks for childrens and as well as for me with milk.

Hello lybrate-user, the weight parameters of both your children are in the normal range. Since your daughter maybe approaching the pubertal age group soon, that's when the growth spurt happens so make sure you give a healthy balanced diet comprising of more of proteins like milk and milk products, soyabean, eggs, paneer etc in their daily meals. Also exercising is a must. 3 major meals and two snacks will be helpful in providing adequate nutrition. You could give vitd and calcium supplements to meet the daily requirements. Hope that helps.

Hi my six months baby girl is crying very much. I have visited a doctor and he said that the baby is taking air during breast feeding. Is it true? what should we do during breastfeeding to avoid it?

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
What is weight? is she growing normally in spite of crying? if yes then, supporting the child by taking in lap, moving around by taking him on shoulder is needed. Some babies do cry for no reasons, they need feeling of security, tactile comforting, talking to him. It is passing phase and not going to last long. Meanwhile you can try giving colimex drops as and when required.

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.

Why Kids Are Such Cold Magnets
On average, kids under age 3 catch six to eight colds a year. "We think that since most children are encountering viruses for the first time, their immune systems aren't able to kill them as quickly as when they encounter them again. What's more, because kids aren't overly concerned about having a runny nose, the virus tends to end up on their hands, clothing, and toys--where it can live for 30 minutes. When another child touches an infected toy and then rubs her nose or eyes, she can catch the cold.

However, having lots of sniffles early in life may protect kids later on. Researchers have found that children who develop frequent colds in preschool catch fewer colds during their school years--presumably because their immune systems have learned to recognize and fight off the bugs. And a German study has found that babies who have more than one cold before their first birthday are less likely to develop asthma by age 7.

She is not getting enough nutrition. Breast feed her every 2 hours & take her weight after 15 days, she should increase 30-35 gm a day if fed properly. If no breastmilk is available any formula feed to be given with full hygeine by bottle.

Swollen naval may be because of outpouching of intestinal content from naval gap, it may be subsides itself if there is no sign of obstruction as green/yellow vomiting, pain at the site. If not nothing to worry give domastal drop 8-10 drops three times a day for 2-3 days or consult nearby pediatrician.
