Hi my son is almost 6 yrs old and has been suffering from fever on and off for the last 2 and half months. We took all tests including urine test, blood test, chest x ray, ultrasound on the abdomen. All tests were normal but the blood test alone showed that crp count was raising every time the test was taken. He has been on antibiotics (amoxicillin, pencilin, augmentin, pencilin iv) for the last 2 months and still falling sick almost every alternate week. While the doctors say there is some infection that is causing the crp count to increase they are not able to say what is causing it. Should I be worried? should I take him for a full medical checkup for thorough examination? please note that for the last 2 months they were diagnosing as tonsillitis, viral infection, bladder infection, possible pneumonia but nothing came out positive in the tests. He does complain of eye irritation and pain in testicles sometimes. Please provide your insights.

Fever on and off since 2 months. Means for how many days each episode lasts? your history suggests it is not infectious cause. Measure the temp. With thermometer and record it. Fever charting is very imp. For diagnosis what is crp value any time esr has been done? what are the tests has been done till now? need to see in details. Child is not hospitalised that means in between fever he is fine. Any joint pain, joint swelling? history of tb in family or close contact? what has happened to weight in last 2 months. Most probably fever is due to inflammatory condition. Need to be worked up.

It may be a complication of diarrhoea like hypokalemia (reduced potassium in the blood) or intussusception. It's better to show to your pediatrician.

Eczema in Infants: What You Should Know?

Eczema in Infants: What You Should Know?

Are you observing red, crusty patches on the surface of your infant’s skin during his/her first month after birth? This is an indication of infant eczema. It is a dry, itchy skin condition which may occur on any part of your child’s body and is commonly found on the cheeks, legs and arms. This condition is sometimes confused with cradle cap, which is another skin condition.

Causes-

Eczema usually runs in families and is hereditary. If you have eczema, it is likely that your child may have it too. Several problems in the skin barrier allow germs inside and moisture to go out. This is a common cause of eczema in infants. The condition occurs when the body makes insufficient fatty cells or ceramides. When there is not enough of these, the skin loses water and becomes extremely dry.

Does Eczema In Infants Go Away By Itself?

In many cases, infant eczema goes away on its own and most infants outgrow the condition by the time they are ready for school. However, some children do get eczema during their adulthood. This may continue for years without specific symptoms. Such children also tend to have dry skin.

Treatment-

Here are some home treatment options for infant eczema:

  1. You should use moisturisers on your child. Moisturisers containing ceramides are a good option, which are available at all over-the-counter (OTC) stores by prescription. You can also opt for good moisturisers, fragrance-free creams and ointments like petroleum jelly. This helps in keeping your baby’s skin in retaining natural moisture. Apply these after a bath.

  2. A lukewarm bath is beneficial for your child. It helps in hydrating and cooling the skin. The water should not be very hot and the bath should not exceed 10 minutes. You can also add oatmeal soaking products to your baby’s scrub for soothing itchiness.

  3. You must use mild and unscented body soaps for your baby. This is because perfumed, antibacterial and deodorant soaps are rough for your baby’s skin. Scrub some soap on areas of your child’s body where there is dirt, such as the genitals, feet and hand. Do not rub or pat his/her skin.

  4. Several medicines are also used for the treatment of infant eczema. These include hydrocortisone creams and ointments, which help in easing inflammation and itching. You should not apply these medicines in excess as they can thin the skin on the affected areas.

You should consult a doctor on observing any signs or symptoms of eczema on your child’s skin. This will help in proper diagnosis of the problem and an early treatment plan will prevent further deterioration of the symptoms.

My new born baby of age 6 days have found bilirubin level as 11.5.Dr recommended photo therapy. My baby is under photo therapy treatment but some people are saying it's not recommended upto 8th day. Should I take out her from there?

It's not a big deal to have photo therapy in initial days as it is needed and however the bilirubin levels are not so high and congenital jaundice is common in new born, so don't get tensed.

I am sure very 1st time baby would have not demanded cerelac. Do not thrust cerelac on her. Leave her free to choose his diet made in home. She is now 16 months old and able to select or demand what ever she likes.

Avoid All types of soap shampoo Talc Powder Oils for skin, opt for plane water bath Until then you can apply Crude petroleum Jelly twice daily in moist - wet skin. Deep acting Homeopathic Medicines if selected after thorough case study and analysis will help you in giving relief from cracks dryness and other symptoms. You can also take Homeopathic Medicines like petroleum 30, Sulphur 200 on prescription of homeopathic consultant only.

If clot (swelling) is painful on pressing, get it checked. If not, leave it as such. By passage of time it will resolve.

Best medicine to increase wt & ht is to give well cooked good nourishing diet of baby choice prepared at home with milk about 250 gm in a day, suji or atta halwa is rich in calories.

My 4 years old daughter generally use to have cold on and off. What should I do ?

If it's not associated with fever it's likely to be due to allergy. Then it needs avoidance of allergens and symptomatic treatment.

At one year age. 10 kg is app. Weight ideally. Breast feed tobe given only 2.3 times 8 hrs interval. 4 times you give cereals based soup prepred in milk or curd. That will provide adequate calories and gain in weght. More breast in late night avoided.

Sleeping 4-5 hours is OK and usually doctors say to wake the child and feed if sleeping for prolonged periods but if he is sleeping for 4-5 hours that's OK and not to be concerned much if sleeping for still more hours then you can wake him up and feed him.

My daughter is 4 years old and weighs only 15 kgs. She does not have any ailments and is very active. But her weight seems below normal and she looks skinny. She eats normally although with a few tantrums and loves regular fruits and vegetables. Is there any way by which her weight can improve?

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS

If she is active she is well, and active children usually do not put on extra weight. Give her food containing proteins like milk products and dhal and pulses.

Just stop feeding with bottle,give milk with a small tumbler & add solid foods after every 3 hours. Gradually increase quantum of food with increasing age & weight. Be careful about hygeine.
