Can numerous fibroids and an enlarged uterus cause bladder prolapse? Why does my gynecologist think my bladder bulging into my vaginal canal is a fibroid even after I was sent to a urologist for stress incontinence issues?

yes multiple fibroids and big size uterus can cause pressure symptoms ....it can cause urinary incontinence, smtimes obstruction in urinary flow, bladder prolapse can be related to enlarged uterus...only after examination we can tell how significant it is

Apply cold compress after feeding. Use nipcare cream 3-4 times daily on the affected nipple. If it is a retracted nipple try feeding with a nipple shield.

Hello doctor, My daughter is 3 years old and yesterday I got some reasons what could be symptoms of autism. 1) she does not have eye contact except her parents with other people, 2) does not want to play with other children 3) enjoying to watch TV and phone when she watching in phone she does not want to give it back 4) become very stubborn and feel irritated and started crying to get any thing 5) speak everything even the Hindi mantra also but sometime the speech is not so clear 6) sometimes live in her own world in school Are all these symptoms of autism and the therapy could help my child to be normal as other children. And can my child also study in regular schools. Thank you.

MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Mumbai
Yes. It may be autism. Visit for a detailed neurodevelopmental and speech therapy consultation. She may also need neuro occupational therapist if the diagnosis confirmed by clinical examination. Most kids with autism who have fluent speech do well with adequate support. Do not get scared. Also do not feel that child is too special or superkid just because there is suspicion of autism. Your kid is normal till evaluation. There are some medicines that may be added for support.

Depends on genetic factors as well. So if he is doing good not falling ill it's fine. But still increase carb in diet like dates, kheer, sheera, yoghurt, modak, laddu, etc and protein like soya, rajma, sprouts, peanut butter, etc.

An 8-12 months old baby should be made to eat diced fruits, cooked and green vegetables, yoghurt, potatoes, cereal and eggs, since they are all healthy foods rich in various vitamins and minerals.

In the initial few weeks baby will try to feed more and it could be every 2 hours or less. If the baby is feeding too frequently may suggest that it is not latching well or only nipple feeding. So try to correct the technique in that case and baby should have good mouthful of your breast than only nipple. You should breast feed on demand means whenever baby wants to feed and as long as baby wants to feed. You should breastfeed throughout the day and also in night. Day by day baby’s demand will keep on increasing because weight gain which is mat maximum in the first 6 months.

My son 8 yrs old he had refusing school and refuse to learning and dis obdientence.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
He is only 8 years and you are the parent: is there any choice he has, or was he given this option about attending school? just lead him by his ear to school and whether he likes it or not, he must be made to go. Now if he not a communicative child, then perhaps he has a problem at school that he may find difficult to discuss with you. Talk to his teacher and find out if there is something at school that is troubling him. If he has friends, talk to them too. If he does not have friends, that could be troubling in itself about the nature of the child. You may then want to check whether he has social problems for various reasons and meet with a child counselor, if the school has not got one. Learning has to be made interesting especially if he is an over-intelligent child. The disobedience will be an attempt to wrest back the control he may have lost when he was younger, or he may have lost his importance, if another child was born recently. The counselor will be able to help with all of these possibilities.

If baby is active and gaining wt. You need not to worry. Give him breast milk exclusively for 6 months in day time too. Cold is relieved on its own in 4 -5 days. If his nose is blocked, instill 1- 2 drops in nostrils.

Daily Habits That Have Been Damaging Your Teeth!

Daily Habits That Have Been Damaging Your Teeth!

Using tooth picks 

The worst habit you could possibly have when you have food lodgement in the mouth is using a tooth pick to get rid of it. We often try and use this as an acceptable habit even socially but few things are grosser than watching people pick out food bits after meals. If you have a cavity get it fixed. We have numerous cases where the toothpicks have either injured the gums and caused a larger infection or even worse broken in the cavity and triggered of even more pain. So stay safe from dental emergencies do not use tooth picks! while it's important to prevent food lodgement in the mouth and keep your mouth clean use things like brushes interdental brushes and floss sticks or dentists to help you do the same without harming you! 

Using a hard or medium brush.

The oldest myth we have seen is brushing your teeth with a hard or medium brush. Please terminate this habit right away ensure you switch to a soft brush at the earliest.

We do not need more teeth ruined or worn off due to overzealous brushing. We see cases with the entire left side worn down and sensitive and I can tell the person is a right handed vigorous brusher. The softer the brush the better it bends and cleans between teeth as well. The gums also recede due to repeated trauma from the hard bristles so save your mouth from these constant attacks in the name of cleaning.

Scrubbing your teeth 

The same principle applies when you switch from a hard to soft or extra soft brush don't apply so much pressure that the teeth and gums are still braving the injury.

You need to brush gently as though cleaning glass the force being minimum the reach and coverage being maximum! 

So scrubbing is a habit we need to stop.

 

Not brushing at night 

One of the best things we can do to avoid the dentist or any dental troubles is brushing at night. When it comes to cleaning your teeth frequency matters more than force. Ensuring you clean every 12 hours makes bacterial attacks that cause decay inactive so whenever we skip brushing at night we may not realise but it's definitely costing us.

Popping painkillers 

The first sign of dental pain and we instinctively choose to ignore it hoping it will go away and if it doesn't we want to go ahead and pop a painkiller till it does. Masking the problem will actually make it bigger -while we all know this we prefer to accept the instant relief the medication provides over the tedious dental visit that may end with bad news. But imagine if we had gone at the very first sign of trouble most likely we would get away with a dental cleaning -the later we go the more often we need to go for extensive treatments. 

Let's try and muster the courage to nip these problems in the bud -a habit to develop show up at the very first sign of trouble. 

Do it yourself dentistry (diy) at home 

We have all been our own dentists at some point! 

From self medication to oral applications and home remedies when all else fails we make an appointment. 

A few things are harmful and should be used with care when attempting our own dental care. 

We recommend mild things like oral rinses or applications which relieve pain but do not use aspirin or any other pain killer to crush and put in the site, that can cause burns.

Also clove oil is a safe remedy but not cloves which can be sharp and hurt your cheek. 

Do not try to remove shaking teeth or attempt any procedures the bleeding can be profuse and the damage severe.

In case of trauma ice to freeze the blows and water to clean the wound will work best. 

In the age of technology and information let's not fall prey to easily avoidable dental habits that harm you more than they help you. 

Write to us or call us at 9209200024 if you have any queries.

These are the sites of folds which are prone to infection particularly for fungal infection if not kept clean and dry. Your kid may may be suffering from fungal infection causing dark coloration of skin. Keep the area clean and dry. Apply anti fungal lotion. It takes quite longer time to get relief. Else consult skin specialist.
