Child with frequent cold and fever. Any suggestion? - Online Doctor Chats
Hi.. am XXXXXXX from XXXXXXX ..Good Evening...
The problem is related to my kid XXXXXXX Age 2.3 Yrs
Hi XXXXXXX Please proceed with your query
last night he started fever with sheviring 104
i would like to know how can i boost his immune system
How is he doing now?
as he didnt get sufficient breast post his birth..
today doc has given medicine...and antibiotic (Advent)
Is he on any medication?
How frequently does he get fever, cough and cold?
2-3 times a month
Till what age was he breast fed?
As my wife was not lacting (I mean no milk) to my kid...fully dependent of Lactogen
and on top of that his perforation operation was done at the time of birth...when he was 7nd half months
Children who are well breastfed till age of 2 yrs are found to have less respiratory infections.
so how can i boost his immune system
What you need to do is to impprove his immunity.
Does he have food properly now?
How is his growth and activity?
intake is good..nd his weight is also more than the require weight at his age
between 15-17 kg
normal seems 13 kg
Does he have any other problem?
no other issues...apart from mentioned above...
The main concern would be nutrition.
He should be given enough of fruits and vegetables to improve the normal functions in his body.
Apart from regular diet (Food) how can i complete his other health requirements nutrition...as we have already started complan for him....
any other supplementary
Along with it Vitamin B complex and Zinc gives an added effect.
it will assist to improve his immunity ???
it contains both Vit B & Zinc as u mentioned right ?
It is a known fact that nowadays we do not have enough nutrients in the food we have.
It includes Vitamin B and C too.
apart from this we have kept his one medicine on calcium (Parnacal) which doc advised us as low on calcium side
Avoid giving him any cold water to drink.
Always give freshly cooked meals.
That would be fine
so can i continue parallely both the medicine Zincovit & Parnacal...no harm right ?
on daily basis
And if fever does not subside in two days, or the difficulties of the child increase, then you will have to consult a pediatrician.
Yes, you can give the supplements together.
When the temperature is high, you can do a tepid sponging too.
Secondly some white boils has been occured on his lower cheek and pediatrician advised (Momisoft) cream...hardly 6-8 boils small ones is it ok ?
Is it present anywhere else on the body??
doc advised today only...during his visit...
Is it boils or just rashes?
no itching nothing
Nothing to worry about it.
As sometimes, some superficial bacterial infections may be present in a child.
Rashes commonly do come with viral infections.
Since your pediatrician has already taken a look, it shouldn't concern much.
Did you follow me Shashi?
i have taken a not of zincovit..which i will continue from today...
One more thing my friend advised me to use cologne drops while sponging does it add any thing extra...
Anything else I could be of assistance to you?
or cold water will do while sponging
Within my knowledge, no.
Use water at room temperature for sponging.
One last Q for my problem..ive been facing lower back problem since last 2-3 days..
Sure, please proceed.
used relispray but temporary results...planning to start exercise ....
right side of lower back is only paining...
Exercise and good posture would help a lot.
What is your weight and height if I may ask?
Weight 68 kgs & Height 165CMs
Ok. And what is your occupation?
My suggestions would be, regular exercise atleast for 50 minutes daily.
especially for Back u mean
And always maintain a good posture.
At work, just get up and walk atleast once in an hour.
Do not sit in the same position continuously for long hours.
Do you use a bike?
Thanks XXXXXXX for your suggestions....
I'll get back if any assistance required....
I hope I had been of help to you.
Definately...u helped me a lot....
Anything else I could help you with?
Zincovit seems will reduce my child pain
Sure it will.

Have a good day...
You too have a good day.
