Does my child need antibiotics?

Fever Cough, cold, Flu? is it flu? will it need antibiotics? Viral fevers of respiratory system are called flu.

How urgent is a dr appt... Is decided by parents. Emergency cases in children require hospital admission.

When you call a doctor for appointment,  please be sure the child is not having any danger to life. If u feel child is serious or very weak or u arr worried of danger to life,  please do not wait at home and take the child to hospital immediately for admission and supervised therapy. Taking a risk to wait for an appointment can at times worsen the disease,  more so when the wait is more. When a patient is at home How urgent is a dr appt... Is decided by parents. Emergency cases in children require hospital admission. THIS IS ONLY BECAUSE EVERY PARENT IS NOT A DOCTOR AND PARENTS ASSESSMENT OF SEVERITY OF DISEASE CAN'T BE SAME AS DOCTORS AND ITS NOT WISE TO WAIT AT HOME WHEN IN DOUBT. When a doctor says no immediate danger to life means child can be saved with medical measures if acted in time. It doesnt always mean that child can be managed at home. डॉं कोंडेकर संतोष वेंकटरमण@मुंबई Dr Santosh Kondekar is now also available at Shushrusha hospital Dadar West . Mumbai I

कुठली ब्लड टेस्ट सहसा तापाच्या आजारात करायला हवी?

New कुठली ब्लड टेस्ट सहसा तापाच्या आजारात करायला हवी? बर्याच लोकांना डाक्टर कडे न जाता आधीच रक्त तपासणी करावेसे वाटते. कदाचित त्यांना डाक्टर ला मदत करायची असेल किंवा पहिल्या भेटीची फिस वाचवायची असेल, किंवा डाक्टर घ्या निदान कौशल्यावर विश्वास नसेल. काहिही कारण असो.. हा सल्ला  त्यांच्यासाठी आहे १. प्रत्येक आजाराची टेस्ट येत नाही, प्रत्येक आजारात टेस्ट लागत नाही, टेस्ट असली तरी उपलब्ध नसेल किंवा ऊपचारापेक्षा खूप महाग असेल किंवा त्याची  गरज नसेल म्हणून कदाचित डाक्टर टेस्ट  सांगत नसतात. २. प्रत्येक आजारात प्रत्येक वेळी टेस्ट पाझिटिव्ह येणे आवश्यक नसते. ३.सल्ल्याशिवाय टेस्ट केली तर उरलेल्या टेस्ट साठी परत रक्त घ्यायला लागू शकते. फक्त ताप आहे असं असलं तरी कूठलेही तापाचे कारण त्यावेळी उगवू शकते. आणि जेव्हा विचार न करता टेस्ट करायच्या असतात तेव्हा डोक्याला सूचेल त्या किंवा समोर दिसेल त्या किंवा कानावर आलेल्या किंवा टिव्ही न्युज मधे पाहिलेल्या आजाराची टेस्ट भितीपोटी लोक करतात व करतात. टेस्ट केल्याने आज
