Brief Answer:
Suggestions on feeding

Detailed Answer:
Hi...Thank you for consulting in Health Care magic.

Coming to your queries first -

1. You can introduce each vegetable and fruit one per week. I am suggesting one per week because, we will know if he's allergic to any particular food.

2. You can introduce cashew. But all animal protein inclining egg better to avoid till 12 months of age. Avoid ground nuts till 2 years of age.

3. You can introduce packet milk after 1 year of age.

At this age you can start giving Cerelac stage one rice or Nestum rice stage 1 etc. All are same in calories and energy. Only thing is palatability which is subjective for each kid.

Other home-made food options will be -
1. Daal and rice well cooked and made into a porridge along with ghee
2. Boiled apple or banana and mashed into a paste.
3. Any made cereal porridge preparation with additional ghee added.

Remember certain principles like -
1. Add one food material / cereal or fruit per week. This will be useful because if he develops vomiting or diarrhoea, we will know what to avoid.
2. Add vegetables and fruits made into a paste surely to avoid constipation.
3. Do not add too much sugar as it may cause diarrhoea.

Hope my answer was helpful for you. I am happy to help any time. Further clarifications and consultations on Health care magic are welcome. If you do not have any clarifications, you can close the discussion and rate the answer. Wish your kid good health.

Brief Answer:
Please upload image of the rash for better guidance

Detailed Answer:
Hi.....Skin conditions are best diagnosed only after seeing directly.

I suggest you to upload photographs of the same on this website, so that I can guide you scientifically.

It might or might not be related to food allergy. But usually food allergies manifest as swelling of lips, stridor, pain in tummy, vomiting and diarrhea.

Brief Answer:
Looks like skin allergy or insect bite allergy

Detailed Answer:
Hi...this doesn't look like a food allergy. It looks like a skin allergy or urticaria or an insect bite allergy.

Allergy can manifest as Cough and cold.

But if the kid is not breathless you need not worry about cough and cold.

Brief Answer:
As age increases allergies decrease

Detailed Answer:
Hi....as age increases allergies decrease.

Coming to your queries -

1. You can continue using Tedybar, Atogla and Dermadew.

2. You can give Monteleukast 4mg once a day for 4 weeks to keep allergies at bay.

3. You can do massage daily. It's not related to allergy.

Hi,monteleukast 4 mg can be given @ normal time. or once I see the spots??? and if any queries how can I contact u directly through ask a doctor??
doctor
Answered by Dr. Sumanth Amperayani 1 hour later
Brief Answer:
Monteleukast can ve given at 6pm daily fir 4 weeks

Detailed Answer:
Hi.... Monteleukast can be given daily at 6pm irrespective of spots appearing or not. Monteleukast doesn't act immediately. It acts only as prevention and on using for longer time. So if you start using monteleukast after spots appear then the result might not be that good.

I wish your kid a speedy recovery. If you need any future medical consultation and suggestions, I will be glad to help.

You can approach me by asking a direct query to me. In this way even in health care magic you can follow up always with a single doctor who knows the history of your kid completely.

I was vacationing in new york and returned to california on December 1. I ate a lot of street food in New York. On my flight home, I had stomach upset and nausea already. In the evening of Dec.1 I vomited a lot and subsequently had diarrhea . I also had low grade fever for 1 day. Though I am better, with good appetite , my stools have remained not formed. It s not liquid diarrhea but some parts are just sandy or grainy and the others are like shredded. I have bloating and mild nausea, and continue to have abdominal cramps. What kind of infection do you think I have? Thanks.

doctor1 MD

Three days ago I went to the local emerg department with nausea , vomitting, dizziness , headache and strong abdominal pain . They took blood and urine samples, performed xray and ct scans. They gave me fluids, pain meds, gravol, and antibiotics intravenously. Nothing showed up on the tests they did. I began to have diarrhea twenty hours after being admitted to the hospital. They felt my illness was likely gastrointestinal . I was released from the hospital at my request. The pain has lessened dramatically in the last three days. My eyes have a yellow tinge to them, though are white where my eyelid sits. They also have a slight film, which seems like just clear fluid, over them.My stool is slowly becoming less watery but is very foul smelling and has changed colour. It is very dark; almost black. I suppose that the yellowing of my eyes is most troubling as this has never occurred before. Wondering what my next steps should be? Is this illness just running its course or should I be re-examined?
