Tina Hello doctor
Dr C H Asrani Hi Tina
Tina My three-year-old daughter had sinus surgery a few months ago and this has completely disrupted her sleep habits. She was the model sleeper before -- in bed easily by 8pm and up around 7am, with a two-hour nap.
Dr C H Asrani & now what does she do?
Tina Since the surgery, she wakes around 4am and comes in to sleep with me. I take her back to her room repeatedly and neither one of us gets much sleep. She has also stopped napping
Dr C H Asrani Sinus surgery at 3 years, seems that you have been fooled
Dr C H Asrani Hello
Mrs Kohli Doctor my 16 year old daughter has a number of 3.5 in both her eyes,, she wants to get the laser treatment done, is it safe at this age
Dr C H Asrani Yes if done at the right place but I feel they may not do for 3.5 number. Pl check
Mrs Kohli Are lenses safe?
Dr C H Asrani Yes they are safe if cared for properly
Dr C H Asrani Hi Hetal
Hetal Hello Dr ,my child had a fall last week, for which she had to get 7 stitches on her leg, will the scar of these stitches will go away
Dr C H Asrani No Hetal the very fact that stitches were put means it was a deep cut
Dr C H Asrani The scar will remain but will fade with age
Hetal And what precautions should I take, can she have a bath with hot water
Dr C H Asrani You do not need any precaution Treat it like any normal skin
Sheena Dr Asrani, hi, I have this problem dealing with my 2 sons aged 6 and 8 respectively, they're always up to getting the other one down, someone pointed out that this may be a case of sibling rivalry,
Dr C H Asrani Yes it most certainly is. It depends on you to inculcate a feeling of camaraderie in them and remove this feeling
Dr C H Asrani Healthy competition is good but not this
Sheena How can I solve this problem
Dr C H Asrani You have to be careful and do not side any one of them more than the other
