You can protect your baby's skin from the development of a skin disease called eczema and from dryness, by applying a fragrance-free, hypoallergenic moisturizing lotion after bathing her.

Is asthalin syrup safe for my 7 months old baby girl? As she is having recurring cold but not suffering from asthma.

Is asthalin syrup safe for my 7 months old baby girl? As she is having recurring cold but not suffering from asthma.
Hello lybrate-user. Regards.All the medicines have their side effects. So its benefit versus risk ratio that prescribing doctor considers before prescribing a drug. Hope you have consulted a Doctor and giving asthalin on his advice. One more thing babies are prone to have bronchoconstriction even though they are not asthamatics. Hence asthalin can be useful in those cases. Hope it helps you.

Most Common Structural and Functional Birth Defects!

Most Common Structural and Functional Birth Defects!

The most important concern that any expecting parent can think about is the possibility of a baby born with birth defects. Birth defects are common in the era of modern medicine and advanced technology, but some of the birth defects are easily avoidable.

Birth defects are either Structural Birth Defects or Functional Birth Defects. The structural birth defects include the infant showing abnormal symptoms and progress in muscles and organs whereas, functional birth defects include the defects in systems, which make the body function properly, such as the neurological and endocrine systems.

The most common structural birth defects are given below:

  1. Missing or abnormal limbs
  2. Heart defects
  3. Club foot (when you cannot put your foot sole on the floor)
  4. Cleft palate (splits or openings in the mouth's roof)

Causes of structural birth defects: The causes of structural birth defects are mainly attributed to genetic disorders or environmental factors such as conception and pregnancy. The external factors include smoking or drinking during pregnancy, deficiency in nutrition or exposure to viruses and other harmful chemicals.

The common functional birth defects are given below:

  1. Sensory disorder: Disorders in sensory system that can cause blindness and other problems, such as the loss of hearing abilities (both partially and fully).
  2. Spectrum Disorder: Problem in proper functioning of brain and the nervous system leading to intellectual impairment, ASD (Autistic Spectrum Disorder) and disability in speaking and hearing.
  3. Immunity disorder: It may cause cancer, autoimmune diseases (wherein your body's immune system attacks the healthy tissues) and allergy disorders.
  4. Degenerative Disorder: In this case, the child grows normally, but later shows problem in functioning and day to day activities. Examples of Degenerative disorder will include Rett syndrome (rare neurological postnatal condition of the brain's grey area) and muscular dystrophy (continuous muscle weakening).

Treatment of Birth defects: Birth defects are recognized by a series of tests conducted during pregnancy. Prenatal ultrasounds can be used to identify birth defects in the uterus. A sample of amniotic fluid (the fluid which surrounds the fetus) can be done along with blood tests to combat birth defects. Some prenatal tests can be done to determine the infections which the mother might have which can cause harm to the infant. There are many medications available to combat birth defects. However, it must be noticed that majority of birth defects can be diagnosed and cured after birth.

I'm 23 yrs old male. I having gynaecomastia. I have memory problems.I'm facing difficulties in communication with other persons. I have lack of confidence in doing any task. My mood also changes frequently. I'm facing severe depression from last 7 years. And my behaviour is similer with ADHD. I read lot of meterial related to depression , ADHD, bipolar disorder and also klinefelter. I'm fearing that I have klinefelter so please give me instructions about to whom I should refer & which tests to be made for diagnosis.

You will need to consult with a sexologist, counselor, and psychiatrist to realistically discover what your problem is. In the last 7 years, some from your depression and mostly because of your adolescence, you have become very suggestible. This does not augur well because at the mere mention of some disease, you could identify with it and even produce symptoms to ratify your belief. So reading so much about different pathologies will only corrupt your mind and will never bring peace and finality to your diagnosis. Therefore, do no more self-assessment and visit a doctor who will guide you and help you understand your condition. Since you are depressed, you will have other complications and some of the symptoms may overlap with other disorders that you will easily feel that you are suffering from those diseases too. This will all make you miserable, and more depressed. You are still young and if your condition is identified early, interventions are more successful. Visit the professional soon.

Most often constipation in infants is not a seriously problem. You need not to anything as long as he is comfortable, meaning there is no vomiting, excessive crying, or refusal of feeds . Give multivitamin drops in case you are not.

This is indeed a big worrisome infection. This happens with viral infection of the lungs and eventually turns up in a syndrome called ards. Where ecmo was needed. Ecmo removal is success but still stormy days aren't over. Pray to god. Hopefully it shall be fine.

I am a breastfeeding mother of 9 month old. I have PCOs and looking to reduce weight. Can I drink detoxing Sassy Water while breastfeeding?

MBBS, MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Mumbai
PCOS needs medical management too, only weight loss is not the treatment. Still meet gynecologist and follow the advice. Sassy water is made by different recipes so which one you are talking I don't know, but usual natural ingredients, like lemon, cucumber, mint etc. Doesn't cause any trouble to child to mother who breastfeed and consume sassy water.

Total sleep required by a 2 year old is around 10-12 hrs in a day. Try to divide it in day nap and night sleep so that she eats morning meal too.
