Mothers and fathers in the house, there's a meningitis campaign presently going on in the FCT (I don't know of other states). Please, let's endeavour to take our kids and wards to the hospital for the immunization, it's for ages 1-29. Nursing mothers and pregnant mothers below 29 years can take it too.
For those in the FCT, you can get the immunization from State House Clinic, free of charge. You don't need to be a patient there or know somebody there, just walk in and be immunized. Even if you had previously immunized your child/ren before now, they can still take this one as it's for a 10 year period.
The virus is deadly, I lost a brother to it.

No idea sweetie, it's supposed to be a nationwide campaign so maybe you can check any general hospital close to you.

BlueMurder: Our baby girl is almost 11 months old, but she still sticks her tongue out of her mouth always shocked People have advised us to use mouth suckers but our doctor discourages their use on the ground that they are veritable breeding grounds for bacteria. Does anyone have a similar experience?
Not only breeding ground for bacteria, she will be addicted to it, which will be very difficult to stop. I will advice you to always tap her tongue & beat her. with time she will stop. My daughter was a victim.

My 4-month old still sticks her tongue out oh! Infact she sucks her hand and her feet too. I just don't know what to do with her.

But I love the way she sleeps - Early to bed, early to rise. No midnight tantrums! Ahhh . . . she's my pride and joy!
you can beat her immedatly she brings out toungue or suck her finger when she is 1yr. But for now she know nothing.

Daycare has been a huge help but my 10 month daughter learnt to suck finger from her classmates. I tap her hand whenever she does it & she stops for a while. She completely stopped during august break when they were fewer kids, but now, she can't sleep without sucking her fingers!!! She is there from 7.30-6pm every weekday. How do I stop her? Do I change the daycare?

I was also told the symptoms she showed were those of teething, but from medical sites I was able to tell what it was. There is no actual 'treatment' for d measles as the virus dies off eventually after like 3days but its very important to keep the temperature under check with paracetamol( I gave 4 5ml spoons per day) I also massaged her body with a cold towel to lower the temperature.
For the cough, I was told to avoid cough syrup (expectorant), so a broad spectrum antibiotic was prescribed. She was okay in about 3days but taking a close look at her skin, you can still see residual spots.

For those asking of chicken pox vaccine, moi petit princess is due for hers on her birthday sad it costs 7k5 in my clinic and its given along with MMR vaccine which is 4k. GH don't usually give these. They'll only give vit. A on that vaccination day.


Hi, please is the vaccine still available for 7500 and what's the name of your hospital and address. Only God knows how many hospital i've been to searching for this chicken box vaccine. One hospital even asked for 20,000naira.

Please ask them to run tests. They cannot just be giving pcm. High temperature is a symptom not an illness. What if it is really serious like chicken pox or measles, God forbid? Please. do not just give your child pcm, find out what is the cause.

What kind of injections was your baby given? did they run test to know if it was malaria or any other infection that was causing the fever? my baby had d same issue and i felt it was teething, however, after 3 days of on n off fever, i went to the hospital and found out she had malaria.

same thing happened to my older son last week. Took him to the paed and they tested him for malaria which was the cause. Pls let them run proper tests on ur baby at least to rule out malaria and other infections.
