My son is 10 month old no teeth are visible.

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician,
Teething usually starts from six months of age but can be delayed till 14 months in some children. Give your child teethers and some hard food to chew on like toast and rusk. Also give vitamin d supplements.

In this age this is normal procedure. Do not worry. If he passes stool 15 to 20 times then you must see a child specialist.

My kids having cough problem their lungs get filled with congestion. .in that case what to do.

MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Zirakpur
My kids having cough problem their lungs get filled with congestion. .in that case what to do.
Most coughs and colds are caused by germs called viruses. Many different viruses can infect the nose and throat. They are passed on by coughing and sneezing the virus into the air. An average preschool and primary school child has 3-8 coughs or colds per year. Sometimes several coughs or colds occur one after the other. The common symptoms are a cough and a runny nose. The cough is often worse at night. Coughing does not damage the lungs. In addition, a child may have a raised temperature (fever), a sore throat, headache, tiredness, and be off their food. Sometimes children may be sick (vomit) after a bout of coughing. A build-up of mucus behind the eardrums may cause dulled hearing or mild earache. There is no magic cure! typically, symptoms are worse in the first 2-3 days, and then ease over the next few days as the immune system clears the virus. An irritating cough may linger for up to 2-4 weeks after other symptoms have gone. Antibiotics do not kill viruses, so are of no use for common coughs and colds. Coughs and colds often do not need any treatment. Make sure your child has enough to drink. Low body fluid (dehydration) may develop if a child has a raised temperature (fever) and does not drink much. Treatment aims to ease symptoms. Paracetamol can ease aches and pains, headaches, and fever. Ibuprofen is an alternative. Both are sold in pharmacies in liquid form for children. There are various brands - ask the pharmacist if you are unsure what is suitable. A popular treatment for a blocked nose in a baby is to put a few drops of salt water (saline) into the nose just before feeds. Some people feel that this helps to clear the nose to make feeding easier. There is little scientific evidence as to how well this works, but it may be worth a try if feeding is difficult. You can buy saline drops from pharmacies. Vapour rubs are another popular treatment. They can be applied to the chest and back (avoid application to the nostril area in small children, for safety reasons). Again, there is little scientific evidence as to how well they work. Inhaling steam can also help relieve congestion and coughing. The safest way to do this with children is to sit in the bathroom with a hot shower/hot taps running. Sucking menthol sweets can help ease sore throats in older children.

Teething never causes swollen gums per say. So there has to be something else. However for ease of teething you can apply zytee mouth paint. If at all there is pain. It would get cured. If not then time to meet your doc!

Fever can be because of viral illness also, which does not require antibiotics, you should wait for atleast 3 days, because a viral illness will subside on its own, however if the child looks really sick, azithromycin is the antibiotic which will help.

Avoid junk, spicy food, meals at odd hours. Take 8-10 glass of water daily. Regular excercise (minimum 40 minutes) daily. He does not need any medication, just lifestyle modification will do wonders.

It is not clear whether temp remained 99 to 100 or it has come to normal and for how long it remained normal. Watch now how long hours/ days temp remains normal. There are many resons for fever which is beyond the scope over here to mention.

My 8 year old son is not gaining weight. His diet is also very limited. Please advise / suggest

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
70-80% parents complain that their child does not eat, still then children grow and some of them even go on diet plans to reduce weight. So this is human nature, we all feel the same. But it has to be substantiated by objective tactics. What is weight of your son. If it is in normal range for his age then nothing needs to be done. If not then look if there is familial thin frame. Very small percentage of children need detail work up.

She may be allergic to some food, smell or dust. May have poor oral hygeine or malnutrition. Thumb sucking or consuming candies frequently, chronic sinusitis are possible cause of recurrent uri.

This may be related to a disease called allergic rhinitis. Visit a respiratory physician who will evaluate you for any concomitant asthma. A trial of nasal steroid may be required.

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.
