My daughter is of 9 years. She is still suffering from bed wetting. What may be the reason? Any suggestions for treatment?

M.Ch - Paediatric Surgery
Pediatrician, Jaipur
Nocturnal enuresis is more common in female pt. Initially we try alarm therapy. Never annoy with your children. Encourage her for going to toilet. Help her to wake up two times in night. If not responding to alarm therapy then write me.

Hi sir my son is just 10 month and his teeth is coming and he is doing loose motion and vomiting suggest what to give him for relief.

Pediatrician, Pune
While teething, there is some irritation in the gums, children tend to put everything the catch hold off in the mouth, to reduce the irritation, if the objects, hands are not clean, there may be some infection leading to vomiting, diarrhoea, and also as children learn crawling in this age, their hands are there feet, and they put those hands in the mouth - leading to problems, this is part and parcel of growing up, unless his vomiting diarrhoea are not associated with significant illness dehydration, you need not worry, ensure that you you keep a clean hygiene, and whatever objects that he puts in his mouth are clean.

My daughter is 2 years old. When she was born her hairs were thick and of good volume but after her mundan ceremony at the age of six months she have very thin and less hairs. Some part of her head seems like as if she is bald. Many people suggested me to perform mundan once again to have good hairs but I am confused to do so. Please suggest me what to do and also if there is any medicine or oil for her which suits her. As she is only 2 years old I am afraid to use so many products on her hair.

Traditionally, it is said that repeated mundan gives good hair, which is not fact. There is no oil or any thing to grow desirable hair. You may get checked her by skin specialist to rule out any scalp ailment. Otherwise take it as normal.

All About Diarrhea in Children

All About Diarrhea in Children

Diarrhea is a disorder that affects people of all age groups. Medically speaking, Diarrhea is a mechanism that the body uses to eliminate germs from the body. Usually this disorder lasts for a few days to a week. It is usually accompanied by nausea, fever and dehydration.

Children can be affected by diarrhea in a number of ways, some of them are:

  1. Infections: Various infections, such as the ones caused by rotavirus and salmonella bacteria can lead to diarrhea. Usually diarrhea in children is caused by viruses; if it is viral in nature, then it can also cause stomach cramps, headache and vomiting. It also leads to loss of fluid from the body. Hence, the child's fluid intake should be compensated accordingly. Usually oral rehydration solution that contains nutrient such as potassium and sodium are preferred.
  2. Medications: Intake of certain medications, such as antibiotics and laxatives can cause diarrhea in children. If the cause is due to antibiotic intake, then you should consult a doctor. The doctor may alter the dosage or ask to increase the child's water intake. Yoghurt may also help ease the symptoms of diarrhea if it is caused by antibiotics.
  3. Food poisoning: Diarrhea may also result from food poisoning; symptoms of this type usually disappear quickly. Along with loose and watery stools, the child may vomit frequently.

The major complication that results from diarrhea is dehydration. Severe dehydration may lead to severe brain damage and seizures. It may also cause symptoms of dry mouth, fatigue, dizziness and dark yellow urine.

Certain preventive measures are:

  1. Use your good judgment while eating outside. Do not consume food from places which use unhygienic modes of preparation.
  2. Make sure your child does not drink contaminated water and there is access to clean and filtered water all the time.
  3. Your child should be eating a balanced diet that primarily consists of vegetable and fruits. They also help in adding fiber to the diet that keeps your bowels healthy. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

2 Months old baby has loose motions, is being fed on similac advance any home remedy?

Pediatrician, Kaithal
Stop bottle feeding, if given. Breast feed your baby, if there is no medical contraindication. If stools are non watery, baby is active and gaining weight properly, it can be a normal activity for this age. It will be better to get your baby examined by a pediatrician.

MRCPCH, MBBS

Look at the nature of vomit. If curd like then it is digested milk but if fresh milk then see your paediatrician as it might be reflux or overfeeding. Take care.

My son is 2 years old. He has constipation problem. We are giving him Muout. He has swollen belly & not passed stool from 2 days. Can we give him Junior Lanzol 15 mg?

Diploma in Child Health (DCH), F.I.A.M.S. (Pediatrics)
Pediatrician, Muzaffarnagar
Junior lanzole has no role in constiption. Muout is not helpful. If child is not passing stool for 2 days and active, it is not abnormal. Give him fibrous food and liquid/ water in good quantity. Train him for toileting habit asking him to sit daily or twice in a day on pot for about 10-15 minutes.
