This is birth defect. Hope you got mri spine done and rule out other associated defects. I know it's a tough bet for parents go through all these but you will need multi disciplinary team work for all these. Pedia ortho spine surgeon etc. So pick up some big multi speciality hospital and try to do so.

Hello. A child with nephrotic syndrome should not be given extra salt in diet other than that is added in gould during preparation. That means he should curtail intake of pickles, papad. Once a child has recovered from swelling, normal diet can be resumed. Nephrotic syndrome can be cured by use of steroids under pediatricians guidance.

Hi it's about my 15 months daughter. Two months before doctor recommended lactose free milk because of lactose intolerance. During this period whenever I tried her it's regular formula milk she got loose stools again.

Most of the lactose free formula are derived from soya (most of which is genetically modified ).So though short term use of soya milk is OK but prolonged use is strictly prohibited. There are other casein based formula in the market. You should try those. And try to decrease the amount of milk consumption by that time.

Do - 1) Avoid excess Salt & Spicy food 2) If you have constipation than cure it 3) Take boiled water added sunthi powder in it to drink 4) Increase Milk & Milk Product in Diet 5) For Locally application I advice Shalmali Kantak + Yastimadhu Powder+Lodhra powder + Keshar + Swetachandan(Sukkhad) + Raktachandan powder+mungdaal - prepare paste of it and apply on face thick layer before complete dryness remove it and wash face with warm water Lepam Can't be applied before Sunrise and after sunset.

Bedwetting is considered normal upto 6 years. As it's only 6 years and 8 months you can wait for some more time. Rule out diabetes.

She has a problem of bedwetting and she is unable to control this inspite of personal counselling, not drinking water before going to bed etc. What should we do to stop this. We feel embarrassed to go and stay with relatives places. Please advise course of medication to be followed. Thanks.

If she has started passing urine after a period of 1 to 2 years of dry bed after the age of 4 to 5 years, get her urine checked. Do not harass, humiliate or punish her. Just console her. Try to get her awake about 1 and 1/2 hour after sleep to go for urination which is usual time of bed wetting.Bed wetting usually occurs once in a night.

Every 2-3 hourly feeds are must for a newborn baby to avoid significant weight loss-->. Meet your pediatrician asap and ofcourse you have to do check weight of your baby every 3 days. Sometimes infection or jaundice are the common cause of lethargy.

Running nose without fever is usually due to some allergy. Better to put only saline nasal drops 2 to 3 drops frequently into each nostril as other drugs may cause side effects in small babies.

Why small kids between 5 to 13 use to bleed unnecessary from nose when play or ran. What is the cause and what is the diagnose for the same?

MD - Paediatrics

Usually it is due to minor crack in the delicate inner skin of nose mostly due to nose picking by children. It can occur frequently during cold due to itching inside the nose. When there is bleed from nose. Pinch the nose for 5 minutes and let the child breath from mouth. Bleeding will stop. If not, continue pinching the nose and mouth breathing and reach to a doctor or a clinic which attends emergency calls.
