She can feed but it is highly draining as she is feeding two lives at a time as well her own health requirements. So take good care of her nutrition. She will need almost triple amount.

My child is 15 months old, suffered from fever from Tuesday to Saturday. I visited the doctor twice. In first visit the doctor only gave paracetamol syrup. Next visit on last Friday the doctor asked for Typhoid tests. Since last visit no fever occurred. However the typhoid test is positive. wide test for O is 1: 8, H is 1: 4 AH is 1: 2 and BH 1: 2. Please suggest. Thank You.

Widal is quite non specific test to prove typhoid. You must get blood culture and typhy dot test for the final proof. As usually typhoid fever has hallmark of high grade fever beyond 5 days.

Salivary gland called Parotid gang is mostly in front and below the ears. It's swelling is known as mumps. Giving Paracetamol should help. Cold compress and giving plenty of liquids to drink also will help. Pain behind the ear may also be due a ear infection or lymph node enlargement due to other infection in the vicinity.

Cleft Lip - Knowing The Complications!

Cleft Lip - Knowing The Complications!

Cleft lip is an oral and facial malformation that occurs in the early stages of pregnancy, when the foetus is still developing inside the mother’s womb. The lips are not formed properly because the tissue that is responsible for their formation does not completely develop before the baby is born. This leads to a gap in the upper lip. The gap can be small or extended to the edge of the nose. In some cases, the slit is in the middle of the lips, or on both corners of the lips.

In most cases, surgery is done to fix the cleft lip, making it possible for the child to lead a healthy and normal life.

Causes

Usually, the formation of the cleft lip is an interaction between genetic and environmental factors. Chances are that babies born with this defect may have a family member with the same problem.

Some other causes include:

  1. Certain drugs consumed during pregnancy
  2. Exposure to chemicals or viruses while the foetus is still developing in the womb
  3. Underlying medical conditions

Complications

Children with cleft lip can have the following complications:

  • Might face difficulty in feeding from the mother’s breasts
  • Ear infections that might lead to loss of hearing
  • Dental problems arise if the gap extends to the upper gum
  • Speech problems
  • Emotional, behavioural and social issues may appear in children due to differences in the way they appear, compared to other normal children

Fibroid Tumours: Know Everything About It!!

Fibroid Tumours: Know Everything About It!!

A fibroid tumour is made up of muscle cells that have escaped and come together to create a knot or a mass in the uterus. These tumours can occur due to a family history, and are usually known to occur for women patients nearing menopause. One of the most common symptoms is unusually heavy menstrual cycles. Let us walk you through the rest of the details.

Types: Fibroid tumours can be of three types, mainly depending on the location. While submucosal fibroids can be found just under the lining of the uterus, intramural fibroids can be found between the muscles that lie on the walls of the uterus. Finally, the third type - subserol fibroids - go beyond the uterine wall to enter the pelvic cavity. 

Symptoms: Usually, there are no symptoms of these kinds of fibroids. There may be heavy bleeding during the monthly menstrual cycle, as well as swelling and pain in the abdomen. Also, prolonged bleeding is common when these kinds of tumours are present in the body. 

Cause: Fibroid tumours are mostly caused due to an overgrowth of the cells beyond the muscular walls that line the uterus. In such cases, the growth is further fuelled by hormones like estrogen and progesterone. These hormones are usually at their highest level in the body, during the child bearing years of a woman. During menopause, these tumours are known to shrink before they eventually vanish. It is very rare to find malignancy in such tumours. 

Risk: Are you at risk? Well, that depends on your age, family medical history, weight and in some cases, even the ethnicity. These tumours are mostly found in women who are between the age of 30 to 40 years and continues through menopause. Obesity is also a major reason that gives rise to this condition. Further, women of colour are known to develop this more easily while a family history can also increase your chances of the same.

Tests and Diagnosis: A pelvic exam and an ultrasound as well as a history of your menstrual cycle will help the doctor in determining whether or not you are suffering from this condition.

Treatment: Non steroid anti inflammatory drugs can help in bringing down the swelling and pain, especially in cases where there is heavy menstrual bleeding. Birth control pills and patches with hormones can also help in such cases. Further, progesterone shots and iron supplements may be prescribed. Very severe cases may require surgery for removal with a myomectomy.

Remember to visit your doctor in case you see any nagging symptoms of fibroid tumours. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ayurveda.

If the child is active, taking feeds well and gaining adequate weight, then no need to worry if passing 4-5 stools per day.

Push Liquids. Warm or very cold liquids make excellent cough remedies for kids because they thin out mucus, making it easier to cough up. Plus, liquids soothe a raw throat and keep your little one hydrated. Have your child drink ice water, cold or warm juice, or decaffeinated tea mixed with honey.

Sir/madam my child is 3 months old and has taken following vaccination. Birth- bcg, opv-0, hep-b1 6 week - imovax polio, pentavac, rotarix1 10 week- imovax polio, quadrovax only. Now my concern is whether the vaccination quadrovax be given in place of pentavac as changed in 6 and 10 week. And also the doctor is saying to give rotatek in place of rotarix due to its unavailability, should it possible?

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
Follow your doctor's advice, it is fine. He has appropriately given pentavac at 6 wks and quadrovax at 10 weeks. Difference is because of hepatitis b. It is to be given at birth, 1, 6 months. So your doctor has given 2nd dose of hep b at 6weeks (pentavac contains hep b). At 10 weeks hep b was not given as per schedule (quadrovax doesn't contain hep b) rotateq ok if earlier one not available.
