Babies need complementary solid foods along with breastmilk after the age of six months. You can start by including curd, fruits like banana, mashed papaya, veggies like mashed potatoes. The food that you give to your baby should preferably be home cooked and should have a thick, soft consistency.

General Physician,
If there is no fever , the rash will subside. It is exanthematous fever.Have you given Measles vaccine yet? THere is possibility of measles. But there is no specific medicine needed , only give Calpol syrup ( Tell me the weight to suggest dosage ) and tepid sponging of the body when there is fever. You can ask me privately to be your regular doctor.

Tips For Acute Gastritis

Inflammation of the stomach is also known as acute gastritis. In this article, you will find 10 natural tips to cure acute gastritis.

Possible causes and habits that could lead to acute gastritis include: medications like aspirin and some pain medicines that can harm the lining and walls of the stomach; the excessive consumption of alcohol; drinking alcohol, coffee, tea, and lemon juice on an empty stomach; and eating hot foods.

When hot foods enter into injured areas of the stomach, the stomach lining and the interior walls slow or stop altogether the flow of blood in the stomach walls, causing reddening, irritation, and in some cases bleeding. All of this can gradually lead to chronic ulcers. An increase of uric acid in the blood can also be the cause of acute gastritis. Some remedies for the treatment of acute gastritis may be very useful in place of using higher-strength medications.

Symptoms of acute gastritis

Lack of the feeling of hunger, especially breakfast.

Vomiting and occasionally blood in the vomit or the stool.

Burning feeling in the stomach.

Feeling of pain the stomach and in the area of the ribs.

Weakness.

Low blood count or hemoglobin levels.

The 10 top tips for gastritis

Honey
Eating bee honey regularly before meals helps fortify the walls of the stomach.

Add 2 tablespoons of bee honey to warm water and drink daily on an empty stomach. It will reduce the acidity of the stomach and the walls will heal themselves naturally.

Put 1 tablespoon of olive oil into a cup of hot or warm milk and take early each morning to cure the stomach of irritation, and this is the best treatment for gastritis.

Consume a quarter teaspoon of kalonji seeds to cure the stomach and treat acute gastritis. Eat black onion seeds to continually eliminate ulcers as well as stomach cancer.

Eating oatmeal with honey every day for breakfast is very beneficial for curing acute gastritis and ulcers.

Add 2-3 tablespoons of psyllium (ispaghol) to 1 cup of yogurt and add 1 banana. Eat every day a half an hour before breakfast. It is very beneficial for stomach health.

Put dried papaya seeds in the sun and crush them daily into a powder, and put it over slices of pineapple and eat every day on an empty stomach.

Take green cardamom seeds, fennel seeds, and cinnamon in equal portions and fry in a dry pan for only 20-30 seconds. Crush them all and eat a half a teaspoon with each meal.

Eat between 2-3 teaspoons of black salt a day after each meal for 1-2 months to eliminate every cause of gastritis and ulcers.

Press 2 or 3 tablespoons of fresh parsley every day to make a juice and add a pinch of black salt and black powdered pepper. Drink daily, 3 times a day. This will also improve your appetite.
Ginger is the best herb for curing the stomach. Mix ginger and onion juice in equal parts and drink every day, twice a day to alleviate inflammation, nausea, and stomach irritation.

Lybrate-user hope you giving breast feeding to your child too. If yes then give your child total breast feed because the more you give the more you will have. If not then of course you can give foumula feed. And ofcorse your child is 5 months plus you can add rice water orally and after aweek add daal water keep the lower part of the baby dry. If rash is more then you can apply nappy happy or any other good oinment over the rash is it ok anything else.

If child is playful, when fever is down, it is viral. Give paracetamol for fever and wait for 2-3 days. If he seems dull/worsening meet your pediatrician.

I have a baby of 2 years. He has often fever and cough. His weight not increasing.

I have a baby of 2 years. He has often fever and cough. His weight not increasing.
The baby is not gaining weight due to recurrent fever and cough which is probably also followed by a course of antibiotics. It is important to improve your child's immunity so that he does not fall sick often. Give him a high carbohydrate and high protein rich diet including cereals, Dal, milk ,butter, paneer,ghee, nuts,egg, meat.Fruits and vegetables must be included to improve vitamin levels sp. Vitamin B loss which occurs due to antibiotics. If his appetite is poor, feed him 5-7 times in a day. Make atta/soya/besan halwa or laddoos .Give him stuffed paranthas, parantha rolls stuffed with rajma/ lobhia/ soya cutlets/ paneer/ chicken. You can consult personally for detailed diet plan and homeopathic treatment for improving his general immunity.

I suggest you follow the below for your condition: Take Mag Phos 6x - thrice daily for next 2 weeks and update. Also do x-ray of the affected area. Heat and Ice Packs. Heat and/or cold therapy helps relieve most types of low back pain by reducing inflammation. Often patients use ice, but some prefer heat. Both may be used alternately. For abdominal discomfort take Nux vom 30 - 4 pills twice daily for next 7 days. Give me a feedback thereafter.

Breast enlargement is common and it's because of mothers hormones present in milk. Don't press it. Leave it alone.

Hi, my wife stopped breast feeding our daughter who is 16 months of old now. After 2 days she feels pain in her breast. Also seems like due to production of milk, it is getting harder. Is this a usual symptom? how long this continues? how to get rid of severe pain?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
It is due to collection of milk let her continue to feed the baby. What waas the reason to stop? pain can be relieved by applying local heat and pressing out milk. It more useful and practical to continue feeding. At this age bay needs semi solid home foods also in addition to milk" breast milk is the best milk for baby"

I think your hubby can manage himself by your helping advice. Operation 2 months ago must not be hurdle now to look after baby n yourself. Feed your baby exclusive breast milk on her demand which you shall learn shortly on watching baby's cry gesture. I suppose gas problem shall be resolved. Minor gas discomfort is no problem.
