Pediatrician,
You must consult psychiatrist & if you are in a bigger city there are deaddiction centres. These people need proper supervision and positive reinforcement. You alone can't do it. It is ateam work. But your involvement is most important. Wish you all the best.

Breastfeeding should be continued till 2 years age though in decreased frequency as compared to first 6 months. During weaning babies show likes or dislikes for various food. If you want to continue breastfeeding offer her breastfeed sometimes in a day. Don't force the child as they are already stressed to accept new tastes and food daily. Offer her if she refuse its fine, try again next time. Add milk and milk products in her diet if she is not taking breastmilk at all. You can use various formulas available for more than 6 months babies. Avoid cows milk till 1 year age.

Regular poster active work is all that required. Yoga and gym is for those who always sit on chair and use brain for 10-14 hrs a day. Food should be normal cereals based, home cooked fast food as regular habbit is again bed idea.

Hello Mr. Lybrate-user, well your son is having chronic allergy, frequent cold and redness of eyes with frequent eye rubbing are the symptoms. Chronic allergy is quite commonly seen these days and this is seen frequently in your son's age group. Don't worry about it but this problem continues for long and you have to be vigilant to get him treated properly everytime. He has to use glasses everytime as this will help with his eyesight as well as keep dust n other allergens away from eyes. Wash his eyes every time he comes home from outside. Start with some immunity booster preprations and multivitamin supplements along with antihistamines. Take care.

Hello, fungal infections tend to flare up in the summer due to the increased sweating. So my advise would be to keep the area dry- apply any talcum powder (around the groin i. E. Where the thigh meets the genital area), in the armpits, under the elastic of the bra, etc. (because if you scratch where the infection is and touch the other parts of the body, infection may spread). Apply an antifungal ointment (my suggestion would be whitfield's ointment- old but effective cure and also cheap) atleast 3-4 times per day. The infection (itching) will subside in 3-4 days but you need to continue application till the blackness in the skin subsides which will take atleast 6 weeks. Otherwise the infection will come back again.

hello, lybrate user, the term 'hitting head ' is not very much clear, please. moreover,it might be due to intestinal worm, or gastric disorder. in both cases, your responsibility is greater,please. if you are feeding of your own , should avoid junk food. tk care.

A 6 year old girl with 16 kg is normal if she feels vomiting but does not vomit she may be refusing food due to food aversion or she is attention seeking. Need to know more details before suggesting any medication. Why don't you consult privately by this site? regards.
