Investigate for treatable causes of alopecia like seboric dermatitis, fungal infection. Improving scalp hygeine is very effective in prevent alopecia. Avoid strong soaps & shampoo to clean hair.

Understanding Child Medicine Dosage and Administration

DNB (Pediatrics), MBBS
Pediatrician, Ghaziabad
Understanding Child Medicine Dosage and Administration

Giving a child medication can be a challenging job and one that many parents dread! Wrong dosage can create a havoc and lead to unnecessary complications or the problem not getting treated at all. So make sure you give your child the proper dose. 

Here is a small guide that will help you understand more about dosage and administration of medicine for children:

  1. Dosage: Usually, most pharmaceutical companies print the dosage as per the age or the weight range of the child. This is true mainly for paediatric drugs. Yet, there are other ways of calculating dosage as well. You can divide the age of the child (in months) by 150 and multiply the sum with the average adult dosage to compute the dose that the child should get. 
  2. Frequency: Also, always speak with a paediatrician to find out how often a medicine must be administered. The label will usually have this information, but it is always best to mention the exact symptoms and ask for the frequency. 
  3. Instruments: Child medicine usually comes in liquid form for easy ingestion. You can use a wide mouthed calibrated syringe for administering the medicine, or you could use a spoon, or even the measuring cup that comes with the medicine. The baby's bottle or a dropper can be used for infants as well. Take care to watch for signs of choking and administer the medicine in one dose broken up into smaller doses to avoid the same. 
  4. Storage: Ask your doctor about storing the medicine at room temperature or in the refrigerator as this will affect the efficacy of the medicine.
  5. Administration: Remember to find out if the medicine is to be administered before or after the child has had a feed or a meal. Then, wash your hands and prepare the child by ensuring that he or she lies still without any squirming. Make the child comfortable about the idea of taking medication and keep the head propped up. Talk to distract the child and if need be, practice sucking it in so that the child avoids choking. You can mask the unpleasant taste of certain medicines by keeping a glass of juice or candy nearby.
  6. Missed Doses: If your child throws up a dose, or you miss one, do not give a double dose. Instead skip and give it later.

Take due precautions when you are administering, storing and measuring the medicine for your child as this could have an impact on how the child reacts and heals.

Mucus and blood in loose stool means dysentery. Get a routine stool test done and show it to a pediatrician. An antibiotic or anti amoeba drug or both will be prescribed.

Hi firstly, start doing surya namaskar in morning and start eating triphla chooran (natural medicine) in morning empty stomach with luke warm water. Start a fruit dieting every alternative day, means you have to eat fruits every alternative days & normal fruit every other alternative days. Avoid late night dinners and try to eat nothing after sunset. Sit in vajrasana after every meal you eat for 10 minutes. Walk atleast 30 min in morning.

If hearing is normal then, problem is cosmetic. Consult plastic surgeon better. But get audiometry done to confirm state of hearing ability.

Formula feed is best avoided and breastmilk is the best for baby. You can eat all nutritious food. He needs to be given homemade semi solids also

My baby girl is 6 months old. Apart from breast milk what else can I feed her?

MD - Paediatrics, Diploma in Child Health (DCH), MBBS
Pediatrician,
Continue breast milk. Start breakfast which can consist of pureed apple/banana, start with one teaspoon and gradually increase to 15 teaspoons in a period of 10-15 days. After 10 days, add pureed dal for lunch, again starting from one teaspoon and gradually increase to 15 teaspoons in a period of 10-15 days. After another 10 days, add dinner, which can be flowing Cerelac or Suji Kheer. Starting with one teaspoon and gradually increase to 15 teaspoons in a period of 10-15 days. Just remeber each meal must be followed by milk and the child should continue with normal breast milk in between the meals. Weaning is a gradual process so go slow.

I have a 3 month old baby he has a cough I tried many medicine but no result every night he awake and cry.
Try to keep baby warm with use of wollen caps, socks, and gloves. Use simple nasal saline drops for blockade and steam inhalation is self sufficient and use of antiallergics and antibiotics should be restricted. Some children require bronchdilators and mucolytics. Some children have immunodeficiency and need thorough medic al checkup for proper treatment.

Have you tested his tft? if not do it and send me the report. If you give semi solids in addition to breast milk then you must give boiled water in between fed with cup and spoon never give bottle feed, no matter however you sterilise it. As you are already giving carrot and dates you can try giving mashed banana (small plantain like robusta). If there is no relief inform me privately > I can suggest safe natural drugs with no side effects. Must tell his weight.

If the baby is breastfed exclusively infective diarrhoea is uncommon. I think baby is having increased frequency of stools especially after feeds due to exaggerated gastrocolic reflex. If the stools are well formed you can ignore.

Breastfeeding may not necessarily come naturally to us. It is a good idea to get your facts right about breastfeeding before your baby is born, and also to seek help with establishing successful breastfeeding.

Pediatrician, Delhi
A nine month old is ready to eat from the family pot provided that the food is non spicy and wholesome. Offer the baby whatever is cooked in the house. Regular foods like dal, rice, khichri, mashed roti, boiled egg etc can be started. You can also give suji kheer, halwa, soups (Veg and non Veg) and chappatis soaked and mashed in dal,soup or dahi. A small amount of extra butter or ghee may be added to in the food. This adds to caloric value and helps the child gain weight. Fruits such as banana/mango can be given. Breast feeding should be continued.
7-8 kg at 9 months is good weight at this age. It is not necessary to add powdered badam etc. The tiny particles of badam can cause problems. Wait till the child at least one year old.

Your daughter needs to be evaluated by a pediatrcian and psychologist. Depending on that she will need physiotherapy and speech therapy. This will help her in attending a special school.
