Is it true using Rice water after parboiling to bath helps make skin glow and better?
  • Best Answer
It's true some of my friends do use and it works for them but I don't know if it has a long time implication. This is how it works. When you drain your rice water after parboiling, don’t throw it away. When it cools pour in your hair after washing and rinse off after about 20mins. When you finish bathing, leave for about 10mins and rinse off. You can even soak up the rice, drain the water or blend it.... Smear on your body and leave for about 10mins... Add a little bit of honey if you can

  • Best Answer
Please use a digital thermometer to check the temperature. If the temperature exceeds 37.5 persistently, that's fever. Please give paracetamol and take the child to the hospital for proper examination to know the cause of the fever. There are many causes of swelling especially involving the eyes. First, you need to rule out problems with the major organs like heart, kidney or liver... Also allergic reactions.... Kindly treat as urgent Kindly see a PAEDIATRICIAN for further evaluation and management

My baby of 3 months + has cough no fever and I have treated cough before and it came back again. Please what do I do?
The most important thing is to KNOW WHY he/she is having the recurrent cough and address it. Kindly see a paediatrician preferably a subspecialist in respiratory issue. You will likely see such at the paediatric respiratory clinic of the teaching hospitals closest to you." Kindly also note that cough syrup is not the treatment for cough but finding the underlying cause.

You can start deworming at 1 year and repeat at every 6months. There are different types of deworming drugs and they can be bought without a doctors prescription. Albendazole is a good choice."Albendazole (any brand) will be okay - 400mg (1 tablet or 20ml syrup) once for children above 2yrs and 200mg (half-tab or 10ml) for children aged 1 -2 years"

At what age can I give my baby Bournvita, Complan or Horlicks?
The minimum age to have Bournvita, Complan or Horlicks is two years. These health drinks are not safe to be given to kids before 2 years of age, as your little one’s kidneys are not ready to take the heavy load of these foods. As babies surpass the weaning stage, their digestive system starts to accept new foods. In 2 years your breastmilk helps them grow a strong enough digestive system to take on these complex foods. As baby graduates from infant to toddler, she needs the right nutrients to grow. As per the nutritional recommendations of WHO for children, for healthy growth a baby needs a variety of proteins and micronutrients including Iron, Zinc, Calcium, Riboflavin(Vit. B2), Vitamin B12 etc. Milk along with Bournvita, Complan or Horlicks can act as a great source of these while also making milk flavourful.

If you had described what you meant by watery it would have helped. However please note that EBF babies can poo up to 12 times in a day as long as the stools are normal. The normal stools for a baby is melon (egunsi like) it may seem watery with little seeds or paste. As long as the stools do not sink into the diaper like urine then there is nothing to worry about. But if you are still worried you may show the poo to your doctor. I hope this helps. Regards

  • Best Answer
Sometimes the BCG is given too deep instead of into the skin. Usually to confirm in case of no BCG scar, we will do a mantoux test to see if there is a reaction expected for someone who has had BCG. If there is none after 72 hours, we will give the BCG again as long as child is healthy(a normal Chest Xray may be needed at times)
