My daughter is 13 years old, she often suffer from sneezing, specially during early morning or at night. She continues to sneeze. Please advice some home remedy. As she takes citzin or avil medicine.

If it is a long lasting problem, she may be suffering from allergic rhinitis. A clue to that would be other family members including parents or grandparents also suffering from some type of allergy. If so we would need anti allergy medicine, either orally or as nasal sprays.

What is short stature.What is growth failure?
What is a growth disorder?

A growth disorder is any type of problem in infants, children, or teenagers that prevents normal growth. Normal growth depends upon several factors, such as nutrition, genetics, and hormones (chemical messengers of the body). Hormones are necessary for normal growth and development; they regulate the body's growth, metabolism (the physical and chemical processes of the body), and sexual development and function.

Endocrine (hormonal) causes of growth disorders include thyroid hormone deficiency (hypothyroidism), growth hormone deficiency, hypopituitarism, or other hormone disorders. However, some growth problems are not necessarily growth disorders; normal variants of growth patterns include genetic short height (familial short stature) and slow growth/delayed puberty (constitutional growth delay).

Although growth hormone was originally used to treat growth hormone deficiency (this group of patients respond the best to growth hormone therapy), there have been other conditions for which growth hormone therapy has been approved for use. These include Turner syndrome, chronic renal insufficiency, Prader-Willi syndrome, and children who were small for gestational age and have not caught up in their growth by the age of two years. In 2003 the FDA approved the use of growth hormone for children who have

Breast milk is the most important and best nutrition you can give to your baby. Breast milk secretion and excretion is controlled by a complex neuro hormonal mechanism. A relaxed and confident brain is all that you need for adequate milk production. During hot summer months take a glass of water before feeding and have a balanced and nutritious diet. If your baby is passing urine regularly and gaining weight then he or she must be getting enough milk.

My 9 and a half months old daughter is taking medicine as prescribed by the doctor for cough n cold. But each time she takes medicine, she immediately vomits. So my question is" if she vomits on taking medicine immediately, should I give the same again then"

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Must tell what medicines are given. If people just say" my child is taking medicines" how can anyone give an answer. Generally speaking, if the medicine is vomited out immediately before reaching stomach you surely can repeat and you must! to have any effect on the disease.

My baby's DPT vaccination is due in 2 days. Shall I go for painless DPT instead of the regular painful DPT? Will that be effective in long run if I go for painless vaccine?

Yes, dpat vaccine (painless) is better in terms of the side effects like pain and fever but the efficacy in terms of immunity and protection is almost the same with both vaccines. But at present the availability of the painless vaccine is poor, so decide accordingly.

At the age of 7 height and weight of my son is much below from minimum required. We give him Buffalo milk, protein biscuits, banana, dates on daily basis. He also go for karate practice in evening daily. His sonography regarding internal body function is normal. He do not eat much as required at this stage. Please guide us to increase his body growth.

MD Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Hyderabad
Body growth depends on many factors, mainly genetic and hereditary, so need not worry as long as child is active and playful. Its too early to expect fast growth as different individuals have different growth patterns. Just see that he does not bear heavy weights on his shoulders. Regular exercises for height gain will be helpful and sports like gymnasts and basket ball would help in body growth.

My son is entering middle school in the fall. What advice can I give him if he finds himself on the receiving end of cyberbullying?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hi, Cyberbullying is bullying that takes place using electronic technology. Prevention of cyberbullying: Parents and kids can prevent cyberbullying. Together, they can explore safe ways to use technology. -Be Aware of What Your Kids are Doing Online. Talk with your kids about cyberbullying and other online issues regularly. Know the sites your kids visit and their online activities. Ask where they’re going, what they’re doing, and who they’re doing it with. Tell your kids that as a responsible parent you may review their online communications if you think there is reason for concern. Installing parental control filtering software or monitoring programs are one option for monitoring your child’s online behavior, but do not rely solely on these tools. Have a sense of what they do online and in texts. Learn about the sites they like. Try out the devices they use. Ask for their passwords, but tell them you’ll only use them in case of emergency. Ask to “friend” or “follow” your kids on social media sites or ask another trusted adult to do so. Encourage your kids to tell you immediately if they, or someone they know, is being cyberbullied. Explain that you will not take away their computers or cell phones if they confide in you about a problem they are having. -Establish rules about appropriate use of computers, cell phones, and other technology. For example, be clear about what sites they can visit and what they are permitted to do when they’re online. Show them how to be safe online. Help them be smart about what they post or say. Tell them not to share anything that could hurt or embarrass themselves or others. Once something is posted, it is out of their control whether someone else will forward it. Encourage kids to think about who they want to see the information and pictures they post online. Should complete strangers see it? Real friends only? Friends of friends? Think about how people who aren’t friends could use it. Tell kids to keep their passwords safe and not share them with friends. Sharing passwords can compromise their control over their online identities and activities.

Coughing is one of the most common reasons why people visit their doctors. When symptoms last for more than a few weeks, the cough would be diagnosed as being chronic. The most common causes of chronic cough include post nasal drip, asthma and acid reflux. Post nasal drip, caused by allergic rhinitis, and asthma certainly could be caused by allergies, which could be worse seasonally.

Hello, If it's a birth mark, so wait for some more time as sometimes the mark gets lighten. We can slight make the mark little better, but can't remove the birth mark totally. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicine - Lycopodium 30/ thrice a day for 20 days. Revert me back there after.

A mother can eat whatever she wants right after delivery. What she eats affects her health and nutrition, and not breastmilk. But make sure that the other eats a variety of fresh fruits and a balanced nutritious meal, with plenty of fluids throughout the day. Curd or lime can be had anytime.

Don't scold her or remind her for her act. Just develop habit to urinate before going to bed. Get her urine checked. If it is normal, no cause of much worry. Avoid to make her conscious. It may be helpful. Else consult pediatrician.

As narrated earlier, we should try to maintain proper hygienic condition while eating, drinking, mouth gargles etc. The container which we use for taking any food/water etc. Should be properly cleaned. Infection can be treated by proper antibiotics etc. But to avoid repeated infection, proper hygiene is tb maintained. As repeated infection lowers the immunity of body and invites to get infection again. This is a vicious circle which nedds to be taken care. Thus treatment is in the hands of parent for avoiding repeated infection. Doctor can only treat the infection once it is there.
