Don't apply powder and don't use wipes. Clean it with water, keep the area clean and dry. Avoid milk to soil the area. Calamine lotion will help in relieving itch.

Continue breast feeding till breast is empty or baby is satisfied and keep top milk ready to feed baby if he is still hungery. This is natural and effective way of increasing milk production. Take yourself good nutritious diet.

She is 5 years old looking so dull not taking food properly. Weight and height is also low. Looking cute but not bright. what should I do?

MD - Paediatrics, Diploma in Child Health (DCH)
Pediatrician, Mumbai
She needs to be checked up by a doctor, to rule out conditions like low protein, low iron, anaemia etc. Most of these children might be low in iron or vitamins and supplementing these will help. Also, one needs to see what her diet it, and modify it to suit her needs.

Concentrating, grasping and retaining abilities generally vary from individual to individual. Different individuals have different rasping and retaining levels as per there iq levels. Just make the child do yoga and meditation to increase the concentrating power. There are no medicines to increase the brain power. You can try some home tips like having an almond soaked in water overnight daily and some walnuts. There is a syrup from himalaya named mentat which you can try which they say improves memory power! just have patience your child will overcome this!

MBBS, DNB (Pediatrics)

Since you say that the problem is for 3 months, I assume he was normal before that. This is not good sign. There may be many causes. Psychological factor may be at play. Need more information about the time the problem started.

Looks like your child is having adjustment problem in the school kamli and lovingly ask your child about the real problem also talked to the teacher looks like your child is having adjustment problem in the school. Calmly and lovingly ask your child about the real problem, also talk to the teacher and child's friend about the exact issues the child is facing. Don't bother the child much about the studies and let her relax.

Is painless vaccines safe for a child? please tell.

MD
Pediatrician,
1. There is nothing like painless vaccine. 2. Every vaccine is associated with some pain 3. Whatever there is available in market for human use is made available only after it has gone through three phases of trials (animal + human voulenteers) the forth phase of trial is post sale survays. 4. Please get your child vaccinated immeditely. 5. A little pain will go in few minutes or a day but if the child got the disease it would be more painful for the child and for the family.
