When Rectal prolapse occurs very often and is not responding to dietary adjustments, there may be a need for a minor surgical procedure to keep it in. Does it always reduce on its own or you have to push it in all the time? These are some of the questions to be asked before such a decision is made. If she has not been reviewed by a Paediatric Surgeon, pls take her to see one as soon as possible. The longer a rectal prolapse stays out, it gets prone to complications such as bleeding, ulceration,

The commonest cause of RECURRENT NASAL DISCHARGE also known as running nose in children is ALLERGIC RHINITIS. Unfortunately it has no permanent cure. It is a condition that tends to wax and wane. Children usually outgrow it. However the flare can be managed. It is more important to avoid the triggers
Hair remedyMy 5 month old baby's hair pulls off in a scattered manner. pls what can i use to remedy the situation? thanks
Whether your baby loses a few tufts of hair here and there or goes completely bald, it’s nothing to worry about. The reason most adults immediately jump to the worst conclusion is that sudden hair loss (telogen effluvium) later on in life is usually a symptom of a larger problem. Again, that’s often not the case for infants. The fluctuating hormones that are likely the trigger for their hair loss are a natural part of the growth process.
