Baby passing loose motions. Suggestions? - Online Doctor Chats
How are you doing?
I am fine thank you
My son is 8th month old
How can I help you?
he is into 9th month now
From past 2 days he is passing loose motion
from yesterday evening he is coughing and he has cold
Is he responding well?
no vomit and no fever
he is responding well
Yesterday i gave him little tender coconut water.
Its due to rotavirus
and its very common in children
today from late morning.....
he is breathing with very difficulty
Please take him to a physician
this needs to be done as soon as possible
when he is breathing his stomach goes inside
Its possible he has pneumonia
when he had only loose motion i took him to hospital
doctor advised to give G norm
I gave him and he advised,,,,if the loose motion doesnt stop then to give some drops
for 5 ml
The loose motions will become ok on their own
Its most probably viral
The symptoms will be maximum on the 4th day
and then it will become ok
You only need to give some oral rehydration solution
This is important
I will take him to doctor today evening again
Its better if you can take him sooner
Till then, keep him warm and keep his room humid
he was admitted in the hospital in the month of Feb starting
as he had loose motion
he was in ICU
why was he admitted?
loose motions are very common
He has viral dyarea
was he severely dehydrated?
like not responding, dry tongue etc?
he had frequently
passing loose motion
in the hospital they took time to start the treatment for him as the bed;s were not available
i got an appointment with another doctor...he is available only on the evening
I will go
But there are 2 things
If your child is breathing fast but responding well, your child does not need admission
Only antibiotics are needed and some expectorant for the cough
as far as the diarrhoea is concerned, give him only ORS
do you have it at home right now?
I have G norm
Its not the same
I'll tell you how to make it at home
In 1 glass water, put 2 tsp of sugar , 1/2 lemon and 1-2 pinches salt
I want you to give him 1/2 glass after every stool
1 glass = 200 ml
Shall i stop the medicine for loose motion
No its fine
But it will not really help a lot
It only works by building the immunity of the gut
Thats it, I think
Is there anything else I can help with?
Any help anytime
