i was asking about my 4.5 month baby girl
Yes, please go ahead
she is having cold in this hot weather... she sweats a lot... but still having cold and little bit of cough
what could be reason of cold in this hot weather?
Is she having running nose?
sometimes sneezing, cough also
sometimes water coming out of her eyes
the possible reasons could be... Some viral infection
she is always in home... no dust or smoke...
what could we do to cure her?
as she is very small... we can not give her tablets and all
You should take her to a pediatrician (Child specialist)
I can not tell you about the medicines as I have not examined your baby
ya... but can we use steam/vaporizer to cure her cold?
She needs a proper examination by a pediatrician before any medicine can be given
steam is fine, but may not be effective in such small babies
cold in hot weather... does using steam work for that?
Weather has got nothing to do with cold
it could be an infection
and infection can happen any time
steam in hot weather is fine?
no trouble... but it is there frm some time.. and not curing
another question regarding my wife
If that is the case, it is unlikely to be cured by simple steam
post delivery she has some problems... she has minor fissure.... and now we are seeing 1 or 2 boils on her buttocks
These boils are due to infection..
what can be done to cure that?
last 2/3 days she is seeing new boil coming up everyday near that area
make sure that they do not get big, it is better to consult a surgeon to see if she needs just antibiotics or surgical drainage
these kind of things should not be neglected, especially when there is a small baby in your home
the infection can spread from the mother to baby
Your wife should keep the area dry and clean
she should wear cotton undergarments
and see a surgeon at the earliest
she is already applying annovate cream for her fissure
She n/8--7-eeds to see a surgeon for these boils..
we had seen a surgeon... and she given a month of applying cream
that time she did not develop the boils
That is the reason I am saying she needs to consult with a surgeon again for the boils
Please consult a pediatrician for your baby
is there anything else?
no, thats fine
thank you for consulting me, goodnight
