  • Is it safe for a 10 year old to start working out?

    Thank you very much for your concern about your child. As he is a 10 yr old, he should be first medically fit to start training in this type of work out. At the present time, in this hot summer weather, he should not start any strenuous exercises. Sometimes bodybuilding exercises can also affect his linear growth. It is better to have a pediatric consultation. READ MORE

  • What is the permanent treatment for head lice?

    There are many methods as well as home remedies to combat head lice. In my opinion, the best way to defeat head lice is to apply Permethrin local application as directed. And repeat again one week later. In between this period, try to comb the hair with a lice comb. The rest of the kids in the school should be treated at the same time if they have head lice to completely eradicate the problem. READ MORE

  • My daughter is just 7 years old and is suffering from severe hairfall. What should I do?

  • Why is my little one not running around like other kids?

    Thank you very much for the question, as it is very important and a vital part in her growth and her physical and mental development. It is important to know about the family history, pregnancy, birth injuries, and to know her milestones of development since birth. This problem has to be taken care of by her pediatrician as early intervention can have better a prognosis.

  • What medicine can I give my child for headaches?

    A 4yr child having headaches in the afternoons is not normal, and giving medication is not going to solve the problem. It is better to know the cause. It may be very simple as seeking attention or it can be pathological and needs a full evaluation. It is better to nip it in the bud. READ MORE

  • If my child is losing weight, is there a problem?

    I feel if she is losing weight very fast in one week, more than 5 lbs, and has any associated symptoms like fatigue, sweating, etc., she should be evaluated early. This can happen if she has any hormonal or emotional or any gastrointestinal problems. If she is in the pubertal stage, it can be temporary. If the weight loss is more than 4-5 lbs per week, she needs to be medically evaluated. READ MORE

  • Can steroids make my daughter overweight?

    As she has a kidney problem, it is possible she can have swelling of the feet, legs, hands, and face. Now that she is on steroids, which can increase her weight also, it depends on the extent of her kidney problem, diet control, and simple daily yoga practice. Steroids are essential and need to be followed as per her doctor's advice. READ MORE
