All babies spit food. Please do not worry about it. If the baby is active and playful, you can try to offer food with different colour, texture and taste and see what your baby prefers.

Hi seems your child is having allergic skin problem/A topic dermatitis. The best way to deal is to regularly use emollients to prevent dry skin and in areas with itching and scaling use of local low potency steroids like flutivate.

What are the Causes and Symptoms of ADHD?

What are the Causes and Symptoms of ADHD?

What is ADHD?

ADHD refers to attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, which is a brain-related condition found among preschoolers, children, teenagers and in many cases extends well into adulthood. These individuals have significant impairment in academics as well as social situations and interpersonal relations. The child has difficulty sustaining attention, phases of hyper activeness and cannot control his/her impulses which make their day to day life at school and home difficult.

ADHD Symptoms

The symptoms of this disorder among children can be categorized under three headings.

1.Hyperactivity which includes - 

- Fidgets often
- Restlessness
- Inability to stay at one place runs around and tries to climb things
- Trouble playing quietly
- Excessive talking

2. Inattention, which can be divided into symptoms like

- Getting easily distracted
- Tendency to loose things
- Daydreaming
- Facing problems related to organizing things
- Not listening carefully
- Forgetting about daily activities, carelessness

3. Impulsiveness

- Interrupts others as they speak and talks out of turn
- Answers questions without listening to what has been asked
- Not being able to wait for their turn to come

Prevalence :

10-12% of school children before puberty are affected by one or more types of ADHD. ADHD especially hyperactivity is more prevalent in boys than in girls, with the ratio up to 9:1. Inattention and poor concentration are more commonly seen amongst girls. The rate of ADHD in parents and sibling of children with ADHD is 5-10 times higher than in the general population.

ADHD Causes

The probable causes of ADHD among children are,

1. Neurodevelopmental changes - Poorly developed activity of the brain particularly in the areas that control attention and concentration cause ADHD. This causes an imbalance in the neurotransmitters or the chemicals important for brain functioning and development.

2. Genetic Factors - genetic studies show that ADHD is largely hereditary in nature with a heritability of 75% approximately.

My nephew 7 year old facing nosebleeds from last 3 years. Consulted 2 3 doctor but they say it happens due to weak vain of nostril. Please suggest me what should we do.

MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Kolkata
Hello lybrate-user if nosebleeds occur from 3 years a detailed work up us important. Most common cause of nosebleeds in children is trauma due to nose picking. Investigations are needed to rule out systemic causes and local pathology. Investigation: *cbc, platelet, pt, aptt, pcv, lft, peripheral smear *xray nose and pns (omv) apply an antibiotic ointment inside the nose two times a day. Nose drops will also be needed. During nose bleeding pinch the nose with the thumb and forefinger and make child breathe through mouth.

Dear Yumnam, I am doing lot of work on Stem cells which are currently being used for blood disorders. Stem cells are also being used in Spinal cord injury, Cerebral Palsy, Stroke , Head injury etc only in the form of clinical trials.

Just see to it that your child develops milestone properly and also keep a note of things which he doesn't tolerate and try to avoid such situations and as he is ten months of age than you can start with smashed rice home made.

Cortical cyst is not thing to be worried. Thyroid issue should be treated to bring under control soon, 180 high BP is also a thing to be controlled soon. You can take homoeopathic treatment for all together as homoepathy is a holistic treatment. Thyroid and hogh BP can be easily bring under control with an average of 6-9 months of safe and effective homoepathic treatment. Avoid salty foods (picke, pappadam, dry fish etc.) and fried foods. Take plenty of water, dates, beet root, and honey regularly in diet.

Severe vomiting needs proper assessment. In this season these are mainly due to viral organism but still you have to be vigilant avoiding dehydration so use ors. Plenty of liquids. Give probiotics like enterogermina. Natural form like buttermilk. Dal ka pani. Normal water lemon water etc etc and get stool r/m done. Avoid lactose containing products for feeding.

My 5 year daughter has asthma. What is the effect of using an asthma preventer long time? I heard that using for the year might cause bone shrinkage. Is it true?

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
High doses of inhaled steroids taken long-term, however, may decrease bone density, which increases the chance of bone fractures. People older than age 50 should have regular bone density scans and take calcium and vitamin D supplements.But a your daughter is just 5 so you can go for such medicines if you likes so.Myself being a homoeopath will suggest you to go for homoeopathic treatment.a homoeo meddicines dont have any side effects.

No powder is good to mix in milk. It is just for your satisfaction to add a little more nutrient which can be compensated by nutritious diet with low cost.
