Good morning,

I have gone through your query in detail.

According to the symptoms you have mentioned, your child might be having a viral fever with rash and upper rashes are increasing, if the fever is not subsiding, then specific lab investigations would be required. Complete blood count, Dengue Ns1 Dengue for IGg and IGm .

Regarding your query of sweating over the forehead and neck, if it is not accompanied by breathlessness or bluish discoloration of lips and nails, then do not worry. For a 6-year-old child, the weight of 20 kilos is normal. So, the excessive sweating will not pose any problem.

Thanks for writing to us, hope i have answered your query.

Regards.

Dr

Tahnk u very much.

Now,

Whether Upper Respiratory infection and HICLAV Kid has caused the rash to develop, the rashes have not increased so far. How many days to give Hiclav Kid?

Is it good to give montair kid plus for longer duration, as our peditrician suugests to give it for 1 month.

What is the reason for voice choked. And with nebulisation it is becoming clear.

Fever was never there , only on XXXXXXX one time we got 98.8 deg F

Pl revert back for my queries dr.

Good evening,

Thanks for follow up.

According to me , the rashes is mostly attributed to viral fever, not due to Hiclav medicine, it is amoxycillin based medicine , so unlikely to cause rashes, the duration of which may range from 5 to 7 days.

Safe to give montairplus medicine for 1 month, there wont be any adverse effects if given in a correct dosage. Do not worry

The change of voice is also attributed due to the upper respiratory tract infection.

So my suggestion is not to worry if the child is active , play full, normal voice and if there are no rashes.

Hope i have answered your query.

regards.

Dr Tahnk you for your guidance.

Now my daughter other symptoms have gone away except little pain in knee & neck

and LIITLE SCATTERED REDISH RASHES HAVE DEVELOPED IN STOMACHE AREA AND ITCHING.

EARLIER IT WAS IN NECK REGION AND TAHT SUBSIDED .

Dr no fever and cough, continuing the same medicines. Sometimes vomiting tendency is there. else she is normal.

Pl suggest , because dr here suggested CBC, PCV, PLATLETCOUNT TO TEST.

With minimum cost whether to test only for dengue stage 1. Then what test. As u suggested the tests that will cost around 2500 Rs here in XXXXXXX

Or is it a dengue symtoms, the rashes.

BEcuase of cold, she didn.t take proper bath for past 7 days.

Pl suggest us.

Good morning,
Thanks for writing to us.

As your doctor suggested , you can get the CBC(platelet count & pcv included ), DENGUE IGg and IGm and NS1 can be skipped. It can be done only if platelet counts are low.
By this way you can save upon the money spent. But along with the CBC test i would recommend you to get a WIDAL test to rule out typhoid and a SMEAR FOR MP , to rule out malaria infection.

Kindly review back with the reports.

REGARDS.

Yes, I have a 13 yr old that has been vomiting and has had constipated/diarrhea for a month now. She has been seen by her physician and was prescribed Prilosec and miralax. She appears to be full of stool ( according to her x-ray). She is still having dull stabbing pain in her stomach and is still vomiting daily. She expresses vomiting is not always with nausea. I hope she will not need an endoscopy. I am wondering if it s GERD or IBS. Thanks for your response.

My daughter is nine years old. She complains that her heart hurts or that it flutters or feels weird. Sometimes this is accompanied with vomiting and the shakes. Sometimes she says she feels like she can’t breathe right. She sweats a lot in her sleep or if she is active always seems to be a lot more than other kids. She is constantly thirsty. She has been to see a gastro, pulmonologist, and a cardiologist. She has been checked for asthma and was fine; they put her on an inhaler for when she is active. She had an EEG which was normal. She may have a mild reflux but not severe. She was also checked for Diabetes and came back negative. I feel like we are missing something help.

I have a 10 year old son that is very athletic, but is having terrible problems with constipation. After a rigorous ordeal with regards to his constipation, he lost 4-5 lbs of stool. Our pediatrician recommended Miralax BID, which causes him to have small stools, but he feels his stomach is fat or bloated and he just doesn t feel good. No nausea or vomiting. We have a friend that deals in homeopathic, kinesiology medicine and he thinks he has an overgrowth of yeast. He has a crack in his lower lip that has been very difficult to heal. We are getting very frustrated.
