This is regarding my son aged 7 years (normal built with 24 Kgs weight), who falls sick with fever, cold etc. almost every month or two months, every time he was been being prescribed antibiotics, muco / bronco dialators, medamol, etc and some times steriod like prednisolone also (for 3 or 5 days), blood test, X ray gave normal results, and everytime he was diagnoised for viral infection by pediatricians. One more doctor whom I had to consult because regular pediatrician was not available, told that he needs strength and immunity has to be improved and prescribed medicines such as Longefine DS (buclizine hydrochloride), neogadine, fortuss-B, Allerbay for three months, which has been administered for two months and he seems to be improving and even though he had mild cold etc it went off on its own without the necessity of antibiotics, earlier it never used to subside before antibiotics were administered. May I kindly be informed whether these medicines are safe, or there any side effects, whether this method of treatment is OK. I am asking these things because normally we cannot talk to doctor all these things when we go for consultation due to long queues of patients waiting, hence I have opted for this website for clearing my doubts.

I recently popped my hip while in gym and while dancing. It really hurts and my parents won’t take me to a doctor. I have a few dance shows and competitions coming up and I have started elevating and icing it but it’s still very tender. Is there anything cheap I can use to help prevent the popping and allow me to still dance? Does tensor bandage work?

A week ago my right hip popped while I was streching in gym. Eventually it got better but then it popped again the other day as well as today while I was dancing at a dance competition. It now really hurts to walk and to sit without it almost fully extended as well as to put pressure on it. The pain feels pretty deep. My parents never take me to the doctors so there’s no way I can go or take medication. What may I have done and what should I do to help it heal?
