Otherwise called the 'Strangling Angel of Children', diphtheria was for long a dreaded yet common childhood illness. In fact, until a few centuries back in New England, it was solely responsible for 80pct of the deaths of children under 10 years. Eventhough vaccines have been developed, poor public health measures have caused the re-emergence of the disease.

Drug-Induced Birth Defects

Ever heard of the Thalidomide disaster? This refers to a certain medical blunder caused by the unrestrained prescription of the Thalidomide drug to pregnant women – and as a result, children born with seal like limbs. This, and other drug-induced fetal abnormalities happen due to the teratogenicity of certain drugs.

Guard yourself and keep yourself informed of the hazardous nature of certain drugs. Talk to other would-be parents and gain valuable advice from doctors at Medindia’s support group.

Dyslexia is a learning disability that manifests itself primarily as a difficulty with written language, particularly with reading. It is separate and distinct from reading difficulties resulting from other causes.

Ear Blockage / Wax Blockage

Ear blockage is usually caused by the build up of ear wax, though infection, inflammation, foreign bodies, and tumors might also be possible reasons. 'Cleaning' the ear with external objects often pushes the wax deep into the ears and causes wax blockage of the ears.

This online group on ear blockage or wax blockage will help you meet doctors and other parents and find solutions that suit your child.
