Please take rhus tox 200 - thrice daily for next 3-4 days. Also -- soak a washcloth in cool tap water wring out the excess water and then sponge areas like your armpits, feet, hands and groin to reduce the temperature. Also, you can place cold, damp washcloths on your forehead and the back of your neck. The cloth pieces should be changed regularly after a few minutes. This remedy is beneficial when dealing with a high fever as it helps keep temperature under control. You can also take a bath in lukewarm water to relax your body. Taking a shower, however, may not be a good idea. Plus, needless to say, take as much rest as possible as it helps the body fight the illness. Note: do not use very cold water as it may cause the internal body temperature to increase. Consult me for homeopathic treatment. Recommend me by clicking on recommend option and leave feedback.

The best foods for the baby are those that are homecooked and have a soft, thick consistency. You can give your baby mashed bananas, curd, khhichdi, dal, chapati soaked in dal and mashed.

Dear , as you yourself have observed, your son has what v call allergic rhinitis (in other words, he has allergy, one factor being sudden temp change. Since he has this for over 2 years, he might have to be given specific nasal sprays. But please start these only under medical supervision. One good news is, this condition can disappear by itself, as it appeared! gud luck!

If you give mother milk only and keep a gap of about 2 hours he should improve. Too much feeding and bottle feeding may be responsible.

Hello doctor. My baby is of 10 days now. And still there is no breast milk formed. Pls suggest as I don't want to keep him on powdered milk. This is my first pregnancy. Pls suggest how can I increase the flow of the milk.

It is nice that you strongly wish to breastfeed him. For first 7 days or so the milk produced is known as colostrum which is yellow coloured ,small in quantity &high in antibody content. But it is sufficient to meet the needs of baby. Pl give powdered milk as per directions written on the can if at all it has to be given. Pl give cup or katori ¬ bottle. GOVT OF INDIA guidelines recommend exclusive breastfeeding for first 6 months of life. The best stimulus for milk production is frequent sucking day &night. Have balanced diet & be confident. Have loving thoughts for your baby. Keep him in direct skin to skin contact. Regards&best wishes.

Uti is notorious. Recurrent fever is common in uti due to either incomplete treatment or under dosing. Some urinary tract abnormality is also responsible for recurrent uti even after proper tt. C/s of urine may be negative if done during tt with antibiotics. Anyway, if there is no chance of recurrent uti, then thorough investigation is required. Preliminary blood test cbc and gbp/ pbs is needed. I am sure he must be under care of pediatrician and must be taking all precaution as required in lactose intolerance.

Sleep pattern varies in each person and it not a fixed rule that one should sleep this many hours although we agree one should sleep 5-8 hours a day . If he is fresh on getting up it is enough sleep

There is nothing certain about twins behaviour. It may be or may not be similar. Monozygotic twins have tendency to mimic. An intelligence is gift of god.

General Physician,
Vitamin d deficiency historically has been defined as a blood level of 25hydroxyvitamind below 25nmol/l. There is scientific debate about the optimal vitamin d blood level. Current practice in the uk, as recommended by the british paediatric and adolescent bone group, is to continue to use that as the defined level of deficiency, and to define? insufficiency? as between 25 and 50nmol/l. Some laboratories and authorities use higher levels but this current practice is based on robust evidence of benefits to bone health when levels are more than 50nmol/l. Vitamin d deficiency can cause seizures and cardiomyopathy in infants, rickets and poor growth in children and muscle weakness at any age. Need to discuss more details, you are free to ask privately in ask privately option with, birth and development history and complaints which made you test for d levels. Mention your name and mail id with phone no. I am thinking of writing an article on vitamin d deficiency among other deficiency states and diseases. You can read them in health tips there is already an article in diseases category by me.
