User:Hi I have a question related my one year old kid. can i go ahead?
User:i think i had discussed with you just a while ago...
User:My son id not having solid food properly.
User:He is just one year and 2 months now.
Doctor:How long has it been like this
User:for the last 2 months.
User:we had taken to our Dr. He had given some medicines like Hepet etc.
Doctor:Before that he was eating fine?
User:no. we had just started offering rice after 8 months only.
User:sometimes if we can divert his mind he was having but now he is not even opening his mouth and started crying.
Doctor:Is he passing stools normally?
User:he takes milk or juice no problem.
User:but problem only with rice items and solid foods.
Doctor:Does he ever hold his stomach and cry, Subramania?
Doctor:Like has your wife thought he had abdominal pain or something
User:nothing of that sort.
Doctor:Otherwise he's growing well?
Doctor:His height and weight are as per age?
User:not sure. when we try last time he was around 9.5
User:his height was abt 60-65 cms
Doctor:That sounds ok
Doctor:!st thing is that it could be colic
Doctor:Which means that there is some kind of spasm in the intestine
Doctor:Another thing is it could be worm infestation
Doctor:Also, it is generally difficultt to feed children
Doctor:You can take it as a given
Doctor:You'll have to run around them
Doctor:Also, give them stuff which looks attractive
Doctor:Like colorful vegetables etc
User:yeah my wife is doing all that. We are happy if he takes even after 1 hours time spending with him.
User:Yeah he likes Carrot and he picks and start byting that.
Doctor:thats great
Doctor:So give him whatever he wants to eat
Doctor:thats a good start
User:but whenever we bring rice items (such as curd rice, sambar rice ) he goes miles away and not even open the mouth.
Doctor:when he's having the carrot, give him 1-2 tsp of dal+rice
Doctor:He'll take it
User:should we try with some medicines or something?
Doctor:I dont recommend it
Doctor:I suggest you try giving him only 1-2 tsp at a time
Doctor:and give it with something he likes to eat
User:ok. we feel if he is not taking proper solid food he will loose his weight.
Doctor:But he will eat slowly
Doctor:It works like this
Doctor:you dont give him anything
Doctor:you doesnt feel hungry
Doctor:you give him little food
Doctor:he feels stuffed and starts crying
User:even if he try to feed him he says no with his hands by waving his hands...
Doctor:it doesnt matter
Doctor:You will need to distract him
User:when he feels he is filled he says that.
Doctor:like play with him and put 1 tsp
Doctor:you can actually give a lot of food to children that way
User:yeah, He likes certain title songs. We play those and feed him.
Doctor:Thats what you need to do
Doctor:Actually, you weaned him off late
Doctor:It should start at 6 months
Doctor:So lets take it slow and take it 1 step
Doctor:If he continues to cry incessantly, take him to a paediatrician
Doctor:He'll give him a B complex syrup and something for intestinal colic
User:ok. But some relatives are telling us sometimes there could be some germs hence he is not having properly..
Doctor:Its not true
Doctor:Children with infections dont have such symptoms
Doctor:Intestinal worms can cause abdominal pain
User:oh ok
Doctor:but you said your child doesnt have those kind of complaints
Doctor:Try this for a week -2 weeks XXXXXXX
Doctor:I think it will work
User:yeah he has no pain ..
Doctor:You can always come back here if you think its not working
User:ok let me try
User:and one last thing, my wife has lot of pregnancy stretch marks.
Doctor:The only treatment is laser XXXXXXX
Doctor:There is no other treatment
User:is there any cream for that without any side effects. the reason is her skin is highly sensitive.
Doctor:They must be white in color, right?
User:no it is in brown.
User:and when she was carrying, she had lot of itching on her whole body....
Doctor:Thats commonly seen in pregnancy
User:oh. But her entire stomach area is full of marks now...
Doctor:But stretch marks when fresh are reddish and when old are white in color
User:oh ok.
Doctor:So for white stretch marks, only laser works
Doctor:For reddish stretch marks we have some creams
User:for my wife it is not white it is in reddish color only.
Doctor:If they are from the pregnancy
Doctor:Are you planning another child soon?
User:not now... and there is no plan also...
User:It is just one year only right.
Doctor:Then she can apply adapalene cream 0.1% on the stretch marks
Doctor:and also massage olive oil
Doctor:Both will help
Doctor:But its not 100% effective
Doctor:I must inform you beforehand
Doctor:Is there anything else I can help you with?
User:nothing else thanks.
Doctor:Thanks for consulting me
