Hi doctor,

My 9 year old son has a problem with bedwetting. He does it around two to three times a week. Kindly suggest some treatment. My 5 year old daughter is suffering from cold, cough and stomach pain sometimes. Please suggest a few medications for her.

Thank you in advance.



Welcome to

For son,

  1. During the night, when exactly does your son passes urine? Is it immediately once he goes to bed or sometime in between?
  2. Does he feel chiller during the night? Or does he enjoy summer?
  3. I would advise you not to give him any liquid diet one to two hours before sleep. And also make him urinate before he gets to bed.

For daughter,

  1. A stomach ache can be either due to worms or it can be also due to gas.
  2. Please try to avoid farinaceous food as much as you can.
  3. I would like you to be more specific regarding her cold and cough to help you better.

The Probable causes:


Probable diagnosis:

Presence of worms in her stomach.

Treatment plan:

Bio-combination (biochemic combination) 6, 2 tablets thrice a day.

Preventive measures:

Avoid giving farinaceous food.

Thank you doctor,

My son generally goes to bed by 9.00 PM. When he feels very chill, he passes urine. It will be between 12 PM and 5 AM when he is in deep sleep. It is difficult to wake him up in midnight. He does not snore but salivates while sleeping. Please advise.



Welcome back to

You can start with tablet Equisetum 30. Four tablets should be given thrice a day. Entrocin drops should be taken by dissolving 15 drops in 10 ml of water and given four times a day.
