Give me details food, fruits for the sickle cell disease, it is permanently cure or not.
How frequently is the patient requiring blood transfusion? is the patient on hydroxyurea drug? permanent cure is bone marrow transplant if patient has matched donor. But can be controlled with this drug hydroxyurea and blood transfusions. Kindly consult a paediatric haematologist to evaluate your patient. Also if you are planning to have more children you and your husband also undergo screening for sickle cell and during 12-14 weeks of pregnancy you can undergo chorionic villi sampling to detect sickle cell in your future child beforehand and as per the result you can decide if you want to continue with your pregnancy.

Whooping Cough in Kids - How It Can Be Treated?

PGD Maternal Child Health, MBBS
General Physician, Akola
Whooping Cough in Kids - How It Can Be Treated?

Whooping Cough (another name for Pertussis) can be termed as an infection to the respiratory system caused by the bacterium Bordetella Pertussis (B. pertussis). It generally affects infants (below one year of age) and who have not yet been immunized; also kids between 11 to 18 years of age whose immunity graphs are on a downward spiral.

What are the Signs and Symptoms?
Initially, whooping cough produces signs and symptoms that may just seem to overlap with those exhibited during the average cough and cold; mild coughing, sneezing, runny nose, low fever, etc. These persist for about a week or two and then slowly, there is the onset of the dry, irritating cough which again turns to prolonged coughing spells. The child’s face may seem flushed with a purple hue. The child may also vomit or make the distinctive whooping sound at the end of one such spell. Breathing difficulty can be another issue.

What is the Diagnosis?
The doctor performs an initial check-up followed by tests of mucus sample from the nose or throat. The mucus is checked for the presence of the Bordetella pertussis bacteria. To make a more thorough diagnosis, a blood test is also advisable.

What is the Treatment?
Hospitalisation might be required in case of acute distress. Respiratory support may also be provided if required. If there is intense dehydration, intravenous (IV) fluids may also be administered. As this disease is on account of a bacterial infection, antibiotics will be needed. But these will just treat the immediate effects and the cough cannot be completely done away with.
 

What can be the Possible Complications?

The possible immediate complications include:

  1. Brain Damage
  2. Pneumonia
  3. Convulsion
  4. Haemorrhaging in the brain

What can be the Prevention?
Vaccination is needed in order to prevent whooping cough. The vaccines are advised to be administered at the age of two months, four months and six months respectively. The 1st booster dose is to be given at 16 to 18 months age and 2nd booster dose is given on 5 year completion of age. An optional booster may be given at 10 year age. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a general physician.

My baby is 5 month old so after 5 month baby which type of eating food. Suggest me.

MBBS, MD

My baby is 5 month old so after 5 month baby which type of eating food. Suggest me.
Madam five monthsplus baby may or maynot satisfy with breast milk alone. This can be best judged by weight gain of baby and demand of breast feeds. If twenty minutes of sucking should keep child playingfor four hrs. Means breast milk is enough. Same is fact for feed baby. 5-6 months is crucial to start semi liquid soup type of feeds two three times a day breast feed is continued at five hrs interval. Frequency of breast feed should never increased nor contd sucking beyond twenty minutes is advocated.

It was when that the IPV was missed as the three initial doses are 3 and then booster at 18 months of age. If you have not given a single dose of IPV then continue only OPV.

Proper positioning for breastfeeding

Proper positioning for breastfeeding
It is very important to position your baby well while breastfeeding. Not only would it ensure that the baby gets sufficient milk for the efforts he/she makes in suckling, it would ensure that you do not suffer from pain and sore/cracked nipples, and that your baby wouldn't get frustrated and refuse to breastfeed.

Get her examined for open mouth which may be either due to nostril block or some other reason. Bilirubin if physiological, shall hve no adverse effect on her growth. No bottle feed at any time only exclusive breast feeding till 6 months of age and continue feeding thereafter with supplementary food. Give adequate feed for good health. U may give gentle bath now. No need to clean tongue or to put any thing in mouth except breast.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. If the milk intake is inadequate, infant may not pass much stools. Now a days other than breast milk nothing is to be given in first few months. It is better to consult your pediatrician. But do not give sugar water for now. Breast milk is the only nutrition for the baby. Thanks.

Hi lybtrate user, looking at the history it seems there is no need to worry. There are still few years to catch up with his height. If parents height is good, he will surely gain good height.

Hello Dr. My daughter is 3 years old, she is very stubborn and often speaks very badly about intimate body parts. We have tried so many times to stop her but she continously embarass us on this issue. Day by day she is getting very hyper. We are very worried. Please guide us what to do ?

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
One thing is certain, scolding & criticizing will worsen the problem. Love her as it is, then explain her your concern, it will probably be accepted. But it's a long journey, needs patience and faith. Examine from where she learned all this and take care in future. You will certainly be benefited by visiting senior experienced child psychotherapist. Hope this helps.

My 2 months baby is not taking her mother milk, please guide how can we give her that?

My 2 months baby is not taking her mother milk, please guide how can we give her that?
Not taking mothers milk means the baby is getting other milk. You have to express the milk and give it with the help of sterile spoon. Do this every 2 hrs. Once the baby like the taste of your milk, he or she will go back to sucking at the nipple which will I turn increase milk secretion.
