  1. Hello and thank you for posting us at Medimetry.After birth a baby's face may appear puffed due to fluid collection and rough trip through the birth canal.Gradually this swelling diminishes.Is the swelling in your baby increasing or decreasing since birth?Swelling on cheek can be due to any injury,enlarged lymph nodes or so.If possible please send me baby's picture.A clinical examination is necessary for appropriate diagnosis and management of your baby's condition.I suggest that you get baby examined.Treatment will depend on the specific cause.Keep me posted on baby's health.Take care and best wishes!

  9. Hi Subhadip is the swelling really very significant or is it mild?How is baby's activity and feeding?If it's normal you should not worry.For the time being no active intervention unless child is sick.A repeat USG after a week may be done to assess the situation.Keep me posted .If possible send baby's picture of cheeks.Take care!

  12. Hi Subhadip The medicine being given to your baby is antiseizure medication.I think you should seek second opinion from a senior Paediatrician.The baby overall appears to be normal .Why did you get sonogram of parotids done?What is reason of decreased sucking?A detailed thorough antenatal history, post natal history and clinical examination findings corelation with test results is a must.Please keep me posted.Take care and regards!
