Ideally it is best to check in with your pediatrician. Give him warm fluids and some steam to loosen up any thick mucus. Depending on his age, for older children you can show how to do a saline gargle. As for medications it is best to get a prescription as it is difficult to know what is causing the sore throat without an examination. Do not give antibiotics without a prescription.

I'm (happily!) sexually active with my boyfriend, and let's just say oral sex is a pretty regular part of our routine. Recently, I came across something about dental dams and... honestly, I wasn't sure if they were just for specific situations or if it's something we should be using every single time. I know they can help prevent the spread of STIs, which is obviously important. But is it overkill to use one every time? Do they, like, decrease the pleasure for him? Please help thanks
Are you also doing penetrative sex also? Because then you have to use condom also. If you and your partner are involved physically with each other only and don't have multiple partners, then get both of you tested once and make it clear that no one from you are having any STI. Then you can enjoy this as it is without dental dam. But if any one of you are with more than one partner, then it's better to use it every time. Also yearly testing can be done if you want to be sure always. It's always better to take precautions to avoid consequences. Though it's not liked by you, it's better for you.

what type of food should be avoided by a thyroid patient?
Hi there, I hope you are well. If you've been suffering from Hypothyroidism, then it is important for you to do the following things. 1) You can consume Cruciferous vegetables like cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, kale etc. but in the cooked form only. Avoid having it as a salad. These vegetables can be eaten once in 3-4 days. - Reduce the consumption of soy and soy based products. - Avoid packaged, ultra processed, and refined foods. - Keep a tab on your sugar and salt intake. - Go slow on the consumption of peanuts as well. - Please feel free to get in touch with me for a one-one consultation as I can guide you better on the same :) Take care ✨
Generally, some people with thyroid issues may be advised to avoid certain foods like soy, cruciferous vegetables (like broccoli and cabbage), and processed foods with high levels of refined sugars and unhealthy fats. However, it's best to consult with a healthcare professional for tailored recommendations that suit your individual needs. They can provide the most accurate and up-to-date information for managing your thyroid condition.

How can I create a balanced and nutritious diet plan that supports both my thyroid health and overall well-being?
Hi Koushiki, I hope you are well. To support your thyroid health you require nutrients like Iodine, selenium, iron, zinc, Vitamin A, Vitamin D3, and Vitamin B12. These nutrients will also support your overall health. - You can get these foods from green leafy vegetables ( have it cooked), lean meat, eggs,dairy and dairy products, fresh fish ( avoid fried fish for it has higher amounts of salt in it) , sweet potato, pumpkin seeds, Brazil nuts, sunflower seeds, carrot, bell peppers, etc. - Additionally have Cruciferous vegetables such as cauliflower, cabbage, broccoli, kale in the cooked form only. - Go slow on consumption of soy and peanuts. - Include enough fibre and protein in your diet to ensure overall health. - Start your day with lukewarm water and a couple of soaked nuts. - Keep yourself active, and keep stress at bay. - Have mid-meals or healthy snacks to support your energy requirements. - Avoid ultra processed, packaged and refined foods . Take care ✨
Hi Kaushiki you can exclude cauliflower family and soya family in foods And include local seasonal fruits and vegetables with liberal cereals and protein moderate fats , enough hydration

What should I eat to help alleviate digestive issues commonly associated with thyroid disorders?
Hi there, I hope you are well. To help alleviate digestive issues, here's what you can do. - Include enough fibre in your diet, ensure to add cauliflower, broccoli, capsicum, kale, in cooked form and not the raw form. - Ensure to incorporate protein, keep your soy intake minimal. You can consume lean meat, paneer, yogurt, buttermilk but avoid red meat/pork. Yogurt and buttermilk are great for digestion. - Have Brazil nuts in the diet as these can reduce inflammation ( reduction of inflammation in the gut can alleviate digestive problems) - Drink enough water, at least 8-10 glasses/day. - Avoid packaged, ultra-processed and refined foods as these can affect your digestion, and lead to digestive issues. - Reduce your caffeine intake, and avoid alcohol, and aerated drinks and too much sugar can lead to digestive issues and discomfort. - Keep your salt consumption to minimal. - Eat in small quantity at a given time, and eat meals in portions. I hope this helps ! Take care :)

I'm always taking care of everyone else, but I never have time for myself. How can I make self-care a priority?
Keep some time for yourself where you focus just on yourself. No work, No family, No children. Only you it's your time. Pamper yourself by doing things that you love - read a book, listen to music, Cook etc.
