Common Skin Problems in Newborns

Toxic Erythema

Although the name sounds scary, this is a self-limiting problem requiring no long term medical attention. This usually appears as red blotches with a central white spot. It can occur anywhere and often involves the entire body. 

The most important factor to keep in mind is the baby?s general health. If the baby has no fever, stays alert and active, responds to the mother, feeds normally, and wets and soils the nappy as usual, then there is no need to be alarmed. However, if the baby stops feeding, stops crying or looks groggy all the time, then he or she needs to be assessed by a child specialist.

What are the signs and causes of hair loss in children

Excessive hair fall, thinning of hair and bald spots are not only concerns of adults, children too suffer from hair woes. Look for signs and identify causes that are leading to your child's hair loss. With proper treatment hair loss can be reversed and your child's hair can be restored.

Symptoms

Look for these signs to determine whether your child is suffering from hair loss.

- Bald patches on the head.
- loss of hair from the entire body
- Excessive hair loss but not complete fallout
- Spots of broken hair and scattered hair loss

Causes

- Alopecia areata.- This condition results in oval patches of hair fallout from certain portions of the head. It is a noncontiguous condition that appears when the body's immunization attacks the hair follicles. About 25% of affected kids also suffer from ridging nails.

- Tinea capitis- Also known as ringworms of the scalp, this is a type of fungal infections that are often seen in children. It causes oval shaped scaly spots on the head due to breakage of hair and the remaining roots seem like black spots.

- Telogen effluvium- If your child has undergone some kind of trauma, be it physical or psychological, it can cause the hair follicles to enter into the resting phase and within 6 to 16 weeks excessive hair loss occurs leaving your child partially bald.

- Trichotillomania-Stress or anxiety can cause your child to pull out his/her own hair. This results in scattered hair loss and broken hair which is prominent on the sides of the head.

- Lack of nutrients- Nutritional deficiency can cause hair loss if your child lacks vitamin A, B complex and biotin it can trigger hair fall.

Hair fall in children is common and treatable if they are of medical causes. Sometimes rubbing and playing with hair can also cause hair loss so parents are advised to look into all the probable causes that might lead to shedding.

All these medicines are not required all the time. You can give only multivitamin and digestive drops for few days and you can stop. Other medicines like antispasmodic and antiemetic can be given whenever needed only.

Do not stop breast feeding. Your child is absolutely normal and does not require any medication. This condition is called breast milk diarrhea. This is very normal that child who is on exclusive breast feeding may pass 10 times motion per day. You need to consult your pediatrician only when there is blood in stool. If your child is alert active playful accepting mothers milk and gaining weight 20 to 30 gms a day you need not worry about. Please continue exclusive mothers milk for first 6 months. No medical intervention is required. Best wishes.

Most probably she is suffering from allergic rhinitis, may be seasonal as you described. Common allergens may be pollens and fungi. Get your child tested for allergies and treat accordingly. Avoid allergens if possible and take some nasal sprays under the guidance of your doctor.

Bedwetting, also known as Nocturnal Enuresis, can be referred to as the unintended and involuntary urination during sleep. Enuresis, being a medical term, stands for wetting, whether during the day in full clothing or at night in bed. For young children and infants, urination is certainly involuntary. It is worth note that children who wet their beds are not actually being disobedient or lazy.
Child Bedwetting can be classified into two types- Primary and Secondary
Primary Bedwetting
It has been continuing since the phase of early childhood without a halt; which means the child bed-wets every night.
Causes:
The child is unable to hold urine over the length of the night.
The child cannot wake up in case his or her bladder is almost full..
The child has been taught poor toilet habits as he/she puts off urinating for hours during the day.
Secondary Bedwetting
Secondary bedwetting can be an indication of a repressed medical or emotional condition.
Causes:
Infection of the urinary tract can cause irritation and pain along with a strong urge to urinate.
People suffering from diabetes need to urinate frequently.
Any injury or abnormality of the nervous system can take a toll on the neurological balance that fundamentally controls urination
A peculiarity in the muscles or other organs that are involved in urination can be the reason behind bedwetting.
How to address the problem of bedwetting?
Motivational Therapy: This involves parents motivating their children to reinforce their sense of self-control over bed-wetting.
Moisture alarms that can detect wetness in the child s trousers while sleeping and sound an alarm bell to wake the child up.
Tricyclic anti-depressants that lower the amount of urine produced by the kidney.

Silver nitrate is the usually given medication for local application in mild burns and scalds. If it's severe it needs systemic antibiotics and local bandage to avoid exposure to the environment.

Bow Legs:What You Need To Know

MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician

Often children are born with bowing of legs, due to folded leg position in utero.

Once they start putting pressure on them while walking, they may straighten out. This happens generally by 2 to 3 years of age.

If not corrected then they may cause some serious problems:
*shortening of 1 leg
*deformity
*difficulty walking running
*higher risk of arthritis.

Persistent bowing may be due some deficiency:
*rickets
*Blount's disease
*lead or fluoride poisoning
*others

First few tests:
25 (oh) vitamin d3 level in serum
Serum free calcium level
X-ray of legs.

How will your pediatrician monitor for a change?

Measurements of distance between knees while a child is lying on the back.

This is monitored to see for any worsening

What can be done?

*treat rickets.
*any other underlying problem to be ruled out.
*braces orthopedic devices to keep the leg in straightened position (serious cases)
*surgery after 3 years (determined according to individual case basis)

All problems may not be solved but timely intervention can change the life of a child forever.

Hello lybrate-user, I can see you have given meds for wheeze, hopefully after paediatrician advise. First we have to understand that cough is a protective reflux of the body. Second, the medicine will depend on what causes the cough, whether it's viral uri or allergic type. If it's viral and if the child is otherwise active, playing and eating well, nothing needs to be done other than observation. If there's wheeze the meds you mentioned will help. If the cough is persistent and disturbing child's activity and sleep, then I would suggest to show the child to a peds.
