Technically, having a young baby doesn't bar your eligibility for chickenpox vaccine. However, small number of people can get a mild chickenpox like illness after getting vaccine. This chickenpox is contagious.

4 Basic Skin Problems in Infants

4 Basic Skin Problems in Infants

Your baby's skin requires constant care and protection because it is exposed to the ravages of pollution, dust and harmful UV rays. A healthy skin also has aesthetic benefits apart from being disease resistant.
It takes about a year for the epidermis of a baby to develop and function effectively. Once the baby turns one, the skin gets thicker and more immune to skin problems.

Here are four common skin problems found in almost every infant:

  1. Prickly heat rashes: Prickly heat rashes are the rashes, which develop on the face, neck, back or the bottom of the baby because of heat. To deal with this situation you should try to keep the infant cool and dry (not let him/her sweat) and ensure that they wear loose and comfortable clothes made of cotton.
  2. Seborrhea: Rashes that develop on the scalp, eyebrows, cheeks, chest, and/or neck of a newborn baby (up to 6 months), are known as seborrhea. It appears to be gruesome, but does not bother the baby. It is recommended to use mild baby shampoo and creams to get rid of the problem. If there is no improvement, consult a dermatologist.
  3. Eczema: About 20% of the babies suffer from a very itchy skin rash known as 'eczema'. The affected area of the skin may turn red, ooze pus or crust over. It can be a result of an irritation caused due to sweating in a hot weather or due to the drying up of skin in a cold weather. Some clothing, specifically wool can even trigger this skin condition in a baby. A dermatologist or a paediatrician should be consulted in order to know what should be done.
  4. Diaper rash: Diaper rash is the development of red and inflamed skin in the area under the diaper. It is recommended to check the diaper for any wetness at regular intervals, and to change it when required. The diaper should not be too tight or left on too long. Applying a diaper rash ointment and keeping the area dry and open whenever possible can help in relieving your baby from the problem.

If she is passing normal stool 5-6 times in a day it is not abnormal. Your query requires more information if stool is not normal. In the mean time you may give some probiotic and stop antibiotic if she is taking and consult pediatrician.

Ideally a baby should doubles his/her weight by 5 months of age.So see according to her birth weight.If she has drooling then it could be stomatitis or throat infection .

My son is suffering from TICS. Which Doctor should I consult - neurologist, psychiatrist or a homeopathy doctor?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
These movements, known as tics and twitches, often affect the eyelids or face. They can, though, occur anywhere in the body. In most instances, tics and twitches are harmless and temporary. In some cases, though, they may be caused by a tic disorder. A neurologist can help

Loose motions immediately after feeds are normal in newborn called gastrocolic reflex. If the baby is in nicu, there must be a reason for the baby to be in nicu, talk to your treating doctor.

Pediatrician,
My 3 month girl baby have cold in nose. Remedy for this block ing nose. Is it serious health issue?
Not a serious health issue if it is not associated with difficulty in breathing. Noisy breathing or partially blocked nose do not need any medication in this age group. You can use saline nasal drops prescribe by pediatrician. No oral medication if there is no any running nose or cough or difficulty in breathing.

My child is 5 years old. His speech is not clear yet and he is not able to speak clearly. Should I see a speech therapist. Can this treated at home?

MASLP

Consult a speech pathologist for assessment of speech & language skills. If only clarity i. E speech intelligibility is an issue or there is any lag in language needs to be confirmed. Treatment approach depends on severity of problem. Remedial measures will be discussed after diagnosis and frequency, duration of speech therapy needed will be estimated.

Breastmilk is the best for a baby. Please don't lose hope, every mother gets milk so keep trying. If you want to formula feed, I suggest you do it with a spoon, not with a bottle.

He has completed 9 months but his weight is not increasing from 5th month. His weight is still 8 kg as he was in 5th month. I am giving him diet of meshed cereals, cerelac, and some vegetables (5 meals a day ). Also to mention that he does not like mother's milk, every time he refuses that within a minute or two. Please suggest.

Don't compare his wt with 5 month's wt. Now his expected wt should be about 9 kg. 8 kg is slightly at lower side. As the child grows, his wt doesn't increase with the same pace as at younger age. I am not seeing any place of milk or its product in his 5 meals. Give him ideally 2 meals but not more than 3 meals in a day consisting of varieties like ghee added haluwa, rice/ sujee kheer, khichadi, dal-roti very small pieces, vegetables well cooked in ghee/ oil, fruits etc of his taste and to develop taste. 3-4 times sweetened milk and rest breast milk 3-4 times. Probably he may be refusing mother's milk because she may be trying to feed her own milk most of time. If it is so I hope with above regime he shall like mother's feed and start gaining wt.

I have delivered preterm baby and he is not breast feeding I am feeding him similac 1 baby is 20 days now his weight is low what should I feed him should I change baby powder n as he is not breast feeding I want to stop my milk any medicine please advice as I need to get to work after 15 days.

PGPN, MD
Pediatrician, Vizianagaram
Most of the preterm babies loose 15% body weight and starts regain after 15 day. Expected wt gain is 20- 30 gms on dialy basis. What your feeding now is good. Instead of bottle feed, start spoon feeds. Look for dilution of milk, 1 scoop for every 30 ml of water. Do not stop breast milk.

A good complementary diet, along with breastmilk ensure a good weight and proper growth of a child after the age of 6 months. I may need to see your baby's growth chart to comment further.
