What can I do to help my baby if he had a bad reaction to vaccines?

What can I do to help my baby if he had a bad reaction to vaccines?

Reaction: There has been a controversy when it comes to vaccination and reactions to it. I strongly recommend that my patients educate themselves and take a proactive stand when it comes to theirs or their children's health. There are websites like: www.Mercola.Com, www.Russellblaylockmd.Com, www.Nvic.Org. You get the opinion of both osteopathic and allopathic physicians. ...Read more

What to do if I had a bad reaction to my vaccines when I was child?

What to do if I had a bad reaction to my vaccines when I was child?

Depends on situation: Almost all patients reacted vigorously to the whole cell pertussis vaccine used prior to the mid 90's. That vaccine was replaced by a acellular vaccine. If that was the vaccine, you can get this one without worrying about it.You can review which vaccine you reacted to and review your needs with your doc. Some may still need to be avoided, while many could be OK. ...Read more

Could you please explain baby allergies to me? If my husband and I don't have any allergies, how could my baby get them?

Don't assume allergy: If i blow pepper in your face, you sneeze & drain the same as those with allergy. I find babies have more congestion with scented cleaning products, perfume, smoke & other irritants than they do with animal dander or pollens. The tiny nasal passages that become very noisy with a little mucous or swelling gives many the wrong idea. Thease are not little copies of adult problems, their issues differ. ...Read more

What can I do to help my baby sleep when he has a cold?

What can I do to help my baby sleep when he has a cold?

Humidifier & TLC!: Colds in babies can be so hard because there are not many medicines that are safe to use. A simple cool-mist humidifier with plain water can work wonders for your baby's congestion and cough. Also, saline nose drops/spray is really helpful for the stuffy nose. If there is a lot of mucus, a bulb aspirator is useful. Upright positioning for sleep (in a swing or carseat even!) may also help. ...Read more

My 18-month old son has another ear infection immediately after the first one. What can I do to help him and to make sure it doesn't happen again? Thx

This may not : Be a new ear infection. The first episode did not get a chance to totally cleared up and your baby started with colds, stuffy , runny nose etc again. Not unusual for children to get several ear infections before they turn two since their eustachian tubes are not angulated to drain the fluid behind the ears. Close ff up and supportive treatment. ...Read more

Seek care quickly: Nut allergic reactions can be severe and life threatening. Symptoms can occur quickly and progress unless treatment is given. A person with known nut allergy should have with them their self-injectable Epinephrine for use. Pistachio allergy frequently coincides with cashew allergy, so these should be avoided.

My seven week old seems to have a cold... The dr gave her an antiboctic...But is there anything i can do she breastfeed and doesn't really want to eat?

?irritants?: The first months are troubled by narrow nasal passages & exposure to dust, fragrances, smoke & other irritants.Baby tries to flush these out of the nose with mucous but this often ends as congestion &cough.It also produces rattling with breathing. The best rx is washing out the nose with saline & suctioning the remainder. Eliminate irritants from babies environment & this will happen less ...Read more

I have a friend that has eating problems and want to help her. What can I do?

I have a friend that has eating problems and want to help her. What can I do?

Talk to her first: She should come to realize that she needs help before any therapy can commence. Unless she has a mental disorder that affects her capacity to make a decision about food intake, she ultimately has the right to choose if she wants help or not. Talk to her and see if she has any insight into how her eating problems may adversely affect her. If so, gently broach the subject of seeking therapy. ...Read more
