    Hello, Painful urination, increased frequency urination, urgency of urination, with or without lower abdominal pain, with or without fever usually need to be investigated to rule out urinary tract infection. Please see your doctor asap to evaluate. Usha READ MORE

  • What can be done to control anger in small children?

    Hi, Time out is one way of showing a consequence for unacceptable behavior. You could also try some relaxation techniques, not at the time of anger, but as a general practice to reduce his frequency of anger. There are many relaxation techniques online through Youtube, but I prefer Heartfulness relaxation technique since I personally used it on school kids and patients in my clinic. Try it :) READ MORE

  • My 5 year old son was diagnosed with asthma. Are inhalers safe for him at this young age?

    Yes, it is safe to use inhaler at age 5yrs. In fact inhalers are given to patients as young as 2 months old for bronchospasm( tightness in chest due to narrowing of airways). children could also use a nebulizer to give the same medication, if not in an inhaler. you have a choice to pick which way medication could be given. Nebulizer needs an electric outlet to use, inhaler is more portable and does not need to use electricity. Hope this helps. READ MORE

  • Is it safe to give my child a cold shower in case of a high grade fever?

    Hi, Cold shower depends on the age of the child, how cold the water is, and also on the activity level of the child. If the child is older, acting more or less normal, and is well hydrated, you could try cooler showers. But it is always safe to use cold rags on the forehead, arm pits, and groin if the fever is not going down with medication. Hope this helps. READ MORE

  • Do natural remedies help in treating strep throat or do you need medicine?

  • When is a fever a cause of concern?

    Hi, Fever is a cause of concern if it lasts more than 3 days at a time and has other signs of infection or fatigue or loss of appetite. It is also of concern if it is recurrent and follows a certain pattern with any other associated symptoms. Fever is also a concern if it causes seizures with a sick looking child. Fever itself does not kill anyone, but could cause dehydration or poor oral intake due to fatigue. Fever is a cause of concern in any sick looking child. Hope this helps. READ MORE
