Hello, Thanks for your query on Lybrate "As"per your clinical history is concerned please follow like this - 1)Do blod and sputum cuture to identify bacteria and take right antibiotics 2)Do measures the oxygen level in her blood through pulse oxymetry and discuss with your treating doctor to make a chest CT scan to get more detailed pictures of lungs. To prevent it in future do like this- 1)Get vaccinated. Vaccines are available to prevent some types of pneumonia and the flu. Talk with your treating doctor about getting these shots. 2)Practice good hygiene. To protect yourself against respiratory infections that sometimes lead to pneumonia, wash your hands regularly or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. 3)Don't smoke infront of her. 4)Keep her immune system strong. Get enough sleep, exercise regularly and eat a healthy diet.and take [GRO-VITAL KID ]regularly. Hope that helps

Dear Sir/Madam, My son is 3.10 year old, weight 13 kg. He get rashes in the joints (underarm, hand and leg joints), which often turn into a dark patch. We consulted a skin specialist who told us that it is an Aotopy and suggested medicines Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion (entire body) and Lutica-Fluticasone Cream IP 0.05% w/w 10gm (small quantity to be applied on the rashes) everyday. However, this give a temporary solution on rashes, when we stop Lutica cream those rashes comes again. We have even started homeopathy treatment but don't see much results. We also did his blood test IgE 984.00. So I wanted to check if this is a right treatment or so I do anything else?

After reading history and analysing medications given by Skin specialist it seems that your child is having eczema. This is type of allergic condition of the skin which makes skin dry, rough and pigmented with the time. Child usually out grows of it by age of 6 years. There is no any particular medicine to cure allergy. The first line of treatment is applying moisturizer creams and when it is not controlled by alone moisturizer creams then low potency steroid creams like fluticasone needs to be applied daily till it comes under control. Rashes are usually seen more during winter season. You can keep allergy under control but can't cure it. Raised IgE level proves that there is no alternate diagnosis.

You need to consult a physician for your diabetes problem. As far as your child is concerned your diabetes will not affect your child with your breast milk. Need not worry!

His weight is within normal limits. Please do not worry. The main parameters in this age group is not weight but his behavioral patterns. Whether he is socially active and good. Responds to the commands of parents. Talks logically, has a good eye contact etc. But if you are too worried about his weight, you can give him alfalfa of homeopathy.

I have high prolactin level of 30.94. I am unmarried. kindly suggest is it very alarming. What can be done to reduce it?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Please check your thyroid function test, because if there is uncontrolled hypothyroidism then even prolactin level also goes up. If that is not there then we may have to look at other reasons for hyperprolactinemia. And treatment for it. Thanks.

Isolated speech delay can be ignored if all other milestones are normal & if he can hear normally as some children pick up speech bit late.
