Are there any long-term effects associated with taking ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) medications? If so, what are they and what medications are implicated? Can numerous fibroids and an enlarged uterus cause bladder prolapse? Why does my gynecologist think my bladder bulging into my vaginal canal is a fibroid even after I was sent to a urologist for stress incontinence issues?

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
Use of stimulant decreases the symptoms to a much good effect and if we don't give stimulant medication there will be more of conduct disorder and progress in disease and for side effects we have to monitor the person and advice them accordingly and enlarged uterus can cause bladder prolapse as its an anatomical variation.

Irregular bowel pattern is common in small babies even if they are breastfed. Right now doesn't require any treatment. You can wait for some more time. For gas formation do proper burping.

You have to reduce quantity of cerelac and add cereals in her food. There is not any medicine for that.

Lybrate-user nobody life is not easy, you r too much in stress, in this world nobody has time to think about others, so do not care what other think about u, first you should have to keep your clear and simple, do not over do the things and do not expect from others, now you r pregnant if you will not be happy your unborn child will not happy and may suffer, so think about him no body else, keep your mind clear and avoid cluttering in mind, one thing you shud discuss with your he shud find out any job at any cost, you have to compel him. Rest take nutricious diet for child, 45 minutes walk with fresh air and good sleep in night. Mind it you have to compel your husband to find out some job immmedeately for the sake of your children god blesss.

I breastfeed my son for 10 months nd milk was, very less. And now after quiting breastfeeding my breast is very small nd loose. What to do?

MCh - Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, MS - General Surgery, MBBS

The best solution is brava and fat grafting to your breasts which will increase the size and improve the tightness without breast scars. The other method is breast by implants by making a cut in each breast.

My one and a half year old son' s hair get sweaty. What could be the reason ?

Pediatrician,
Does it remain sweaty all the times, or only in warm weather, while he is active, how much activity is he able to perform in a day, if he is active playful through out the day, eating well it may not be a reason for worry

Sometimes , I hear less. And almost it is normal. Why it happens I do not know.

DNB (Neurosurgery) , MBBS
Neurosurgeon,
This is not a neurosurgical question though I would like to explain. There is a communication between middle ear and throat. It's called as eustachian tube. It regulates pressure inside ear cavity. You can feel 'click' in your ear everytime you swallow.Patency of the tube and atmospheric pressure can affect hearing for the time being. Like in airplane because of pressurised cabins you tend to hear less and your hearing improves as you swallow something. It's completely physiological. Nothing serious. Persistent deafness needs investigations in consultation with Ent surgeon .

My daughter is 5 years old and constantly suffers from stomach pain and indigestion. We also have taken sonography report which came normal. Her immunity is also very low and falls sick very often. We are also doing homeopathy for her. Please advice.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Children usually fall sick till they are of certain age by when their body would have become immune to common viruses and allergens in the surroundings. School going children also get infected from their peers. You tell her weight and send reports to me. As tft done? yo check her eating pattern whether she eats on time even if little.

Common Skin Problems in Newborns

Mongolian Spot

This is extremely common in Indian babies. This appears as a blue-grey patch on the buttocks or the lower back. The patch can be quite large in size. They look unsightly, but apart from the cosmetic appearance, they do not cause any problems. Often parents confuse it with a bruise and see a dermatologist when it doesn?t settle down. This can be safely ignored and it may either disappear or become smaller with age.

I have 4 months old daughter. It looks like like her one leg is shorter than the other. Is there any problem with this? what happens if one leg is shorter than other?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Have to measure and see the child. Usually it is the just the feeling of parents and by the time they walk, say by one year there will not be any problem. You can ask privately.
