I am suffering from dry cough gently I met a doctor who had given the medicine even after it seems only a little change so tell what do I do for it?

MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Mumbai
There are many types of dry cough. Also it can be from different parts of respiratory system. Each type of cough needs specific medicine with or without combinations and for good course of time. Some coughs are due to allergy and will need special treatment. Its better to revisit a specialist physician and get medicine changed or investigated.

Its always wise to visit a Dr. with the report and xray. Many things mean differently in different context. Routinely it may be normal finding in cities but a different pattern of it will make one diagnose bronchitis. Please do not try to be a doctor to understand and manage everything.

What medicines to take and food habits to follow if a person is suffering from asthma?

Pediatrician, Mumbai
What medicines to take and food habits to follow if a person is suffering from asthma?
Lybrate-user, avoiding animal milk is of great help. But specific food avoidance is based on allergen test. Random stopping all foods or fruits is foolish post icecream cough/cold water cough is preventable by gargles immediately after eating.

Lybrate-user, its easy, you have to stop the diet that cause weight loss or reduce appetite. Milk, vegetables, soups, fruits help in losing weight. Cereals rice, ghee, oils help in gaining weight. Also keep a watch on constipation.

Please visit with a xray chest and pft. Often there may be a wrong diagnosis. Allergy test will help us zero down specific allergen. Asthma is cotrollable disease with proper therapy. Your asthma appears miss managed if your symptoms are persistent. You may also need a CT chest.

Milk and cerelac are now no longer required at this age. Start with rice or ragi flour porridge or soups and fruit juices to begin with. Let me know if the child has hard stools as it is a common reason for food refusal.

At this age the cry episodes are related to dream understandings and also called as night terrors. A physical company and patting the child or a story bedtime or a fat meal at night is likely to work. Other causes of recent night cry are related to insect bite, nose block, ear ache, constipation or indigestion.

What should you suggest in diet for a ten year old son? Can it'll be safe to have coffee. For him? How many glasses of milk he should have?

MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Mumbai
Diet should be two major meals and two short snacks in a day. Milk has no major role. Each majr meal should have around thousand calories with two roti's 1 bowl rice daal. 1 spoon ghee and fruits. Shirt snacks should be rice potato or wheat flour based with a cup of fruit juice. Milk may be added to reduce appetite if the kid is eating heavily and is obese.

My son has very dark colour near neck area. Underarms and near thighs. He is overweight and 13 years old. Give some remedies for this.

MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Mumbai
Hi. Often such pigmentation is related to fold areas remaining hidden from air exposure. A daily application of a moisture absorbing powder three times a day and keeping the area clean and dry will help.

Hello doctor, My daughter is 3 years old and yesterday I got some reasons what could be symptoms of autism. 1) she does not have eye contact except her parents with other people, 2) does not want to play with other children 3) enjoying to watch TV and phone when she watching in phone she does not want to give it back 4) become very stubborn and feel irritated and started crying to get any thing 5) speak everything even the Hindi mantra also but sometime the speech is not so clear 6) sometimes live in her own world in school Are all these symptoms of autism and the therapy could help my child to be normal as other children. And can my child also study in regular schools. Thank you.

MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Mumbai
Yes. It may be autism. Visit for a detailed neurodevelopmental and speech therapy consultation. She may also need neuro occupational therapist if the diagnosis confirmed by clinical examination. Most kids with autism who have fluent speech do well with adequate support. Do not get scared. Also do not feel that child is too special or superkid just because there is suspicion of autism. Your kid is normal till evaluation. There are some medicines that may be added for support.

Which milk is good for my 21 months old child. Cow milk or packged milk like amul gold? Or any other?
At this age, milk dominant feeding is more harmful. Please give balanced diet containing 70% carbohydrates 15% fats and 10% proteins milk dominant feeding at this age will cause anemia and hypocalcemia. If a 50 kg adult should drink 200 ml milk in a day; a 10 kg should drink 40 ml a day.
