No, you are not to use blood tonic routinely. Rather ensure your child takes food rich in iron. But if you feel your baby's blood is low, kindly check the PCV first at the hospital and let the doctor work out the appropriate dose for your baby.

It depends on many factors. A child's attention span is definitely not the same as that of an adult....so most of them can not engage in activities that require sitting still for long without any form of activity, you may want to see a Paediatrician preferably a Developmental Paediatrician for the child's evaluation first to know if there are other developmental concerns or to rule out things like Absence Seizures that may also present the same way .

My son of 5years old is having convulsion.it has started since last 2 yearsWe have consulted a doctor and we are giving him Tegretol, Emphacebol and vitamin c, but wot are we going to give him or do
Dr. Dara Abiodun

Medical Doctor

Treatment is advisable if seizures are recurrent and troublesome. The following are the major options available: 1. Drugs - Control of the seizures with drugs can be good in most cases without causing harmful side-effects. Whenever possible one drug should be used in as few doses each day as necessary to ensure adequate blood levels by day and by night. Sometimes more than one drug has to be used. Generally, the more modern treatments produce fewer problems than the older drugs. If drugs are given only sporadically, or different from the way prescribed, seizure control will be poor. Drugs should never be stopped suddenly. If you are concerned about any aspect of treatment, be sure to talk to your doctor. 2. Psychological intervention - Some children's seizures are made worse by such things as stress, emotional upset and boredom. In these cases it is important to identify the problem and deal with it, which may require help from a counsellor in addition to the medication being continued. 3. Surgery -Only a small number of children with epilepsy will be suitable for surgery but improved investigations and new surgical techniques mean that surgery can now be very successful for some children. Unfortunately not all epilepsies have a good prognosis and some children will have seizures for many years, even for all their lives. In general the prognosis for good seizure control is poor where epilepsy is associated with intellectual disability, especially if severe. Rarely seizures cannot be controlled because of progressive underlying brain disease.

What could be wrong with a 9 years old child still wetting the bed?
  • Best Answer
Their are some approach ways to manage bedwetting (enuresis). Here are changes you can make at home that may help: Limit how much your child drinks in the evening. It's important to get enough fluids so their is no need to limit how much your child drinks in a day. However, encourage your child to focus on drinking liquids in the morning and early afternoon, which may reduce thirst in the evening. But don't limit evening fluids if your child participates in sports practice or games in the evenings. Avoid beverages and foods with caffeine. Beverages with caffeine are discouraged for children at any time of day because caffeine may stimulate the bladder, it's especially discouraged in the evening. Encourage regular toilet use throughout the day. During the day and evening, suggest that your child urinate every two hours or so, or at least often enough to avoid a feeling of urgency.
