 Frequently Asked Questions

Q: My daughter holds her breath whenever she gets hurt or falls down. Her breathing returns a few seconds later. Her lips turn blue sometimes. Is there any remedy for this? I am so worried, and since she is a naughty child, she tends to fall very often.

A: These are called breath-holding spells. Check your child's Haemoglobin count. If it is low, give your child oral iron for 3 months.
