She has child asthma what are precautions and consult about good treatment for my daughter.

MD Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Hyderabad
As a parent of asthmatic child there are few precautions to be followed apart from giving medications. Avoid child getting exposed to very cold air/breeze, avoid dust (roads, construction areas, while cleaning home) avoid wollen clothes or hairy cloths or beddings, avoid artificial colours, flavours. Be extra cautious in winter and rainy seasons. Always keep inhalers and medications related to asthma even if you are travelling.

Breathing through mouth is a sign of adenoid enlargement. So meet your ent and they would prescribe you proper meds for the same in form of nasal drops and anti histaminics. So all the best. Till you meet him try otrivin p nasal drops one drop in each nostril every four to six hourly.

My son is only one months he always cry and search for milk either his stomach is full and when it get out start to cry please help me

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
Crying child needs support. He may not be hungry as no mother usually wait to feed till child becomes hungry. So even if child is not hungry he will cry for any discomfort he experiences. It is usually for want of love and affection, fear out of lonely feeling or any other physical discomfort. It is the only way by which he will express his feelings. There is no fault on mother's/parents part. Parents need to support him emotionally, rather than becoming panic. That will develop trust and bonding. It must be looked up on as an opportunity to make him feel secure and building bond there by. Hope this helps. All babies cry whatever you do.

It depends on the ailment condition and improvement. There is no hard and fast rule, usually a course of 3-5 days is sufficient, in certain conditions like tb and leprosy we give for about a year.

Your son has got delayed speech and language skills, it could be just expressive delay where child understands everything but doesn't respond verbally. If he has got expression only at word level then kindly see some speech therapist. You can contact me back for further help.

Five food groups namely  cereals (like rice, wheat in any form, oats in any form ), pulses  (like any dal), vegetables, fruits and animal protein  (meat, fish, egg, milk in any form )should be present in adequate amount in the food of your baby. Basic principles of feeding are 1) it should be acceptable I. E. Kids should like eating it. 2) tolerable i.e. After  eating if baby develop abdominal distension,  vomiting, loose stool,  rash that means your baby can't tolerate the product.  3) appropriate consistency I. E. Porridge like with gradual change so that by the age of 2 normal adult foods can be given to the kids.  4) all the food groups should be present in the menu of whole day. Antacids and digestive enzymes can be given for acidity and digestive problem.

Dear lybrate-user. It would be very difficult to explain the things to you in few lines. All that I can say is that there is no medicine to improve kidney function. The aim of all the treatment is to preserve what ever kidney function is left so please keep a proper follow up with your doctor. Thanks.

My son is 2 years old and he is still not learnt to speak? he says only papa and maa.
Kindly advice.
Hello thanks for the query You won't get worried if he responds to sound, clearly speaks papa and mama and other motor and social milestones are normal. In the current era of gadgets/television and nuclear family it has been observed that the language development lags behind. Just observe about the development and try to interact more with the baby. I hope this helps. Regards.

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

If it is specific smell she should be examined for certain diseases. Otherwise you take care to give bath twice or thrice. You can show a doctor for some tests to rule out certain diseases like metabolic diseases.
