Child having loose stools. Suggest the remedy - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help you?
My son is 2yrs 2 months
he is getting loose motion from yesterday.........Yesterday evening I took him to columbia Asia Hospital
one twice daily
but there is no improvement............he is still getting loose stools
I meants loose motion
How many episodes of loose stool did he have today?
Is he running fever?
Does he complain of abdominal pain?
yesterday but today no
Is he running fever?
Did the doctor perform any test yesterday?
he checked his stomach
he said buy today evening if it not stopped, then he had advised stool test
Let me brief you.
The medicines given to him are nutritional supplements and probiotics.
It helps in improving his body defense and supplement intestinal flora
both of these are important while treating intestinal infections.
However they do not control loose stools.
Symptoms generally should stop as the infection clears.
3 episode of loose stool is not concerning if he is active and playful now
and has no fever.
You can continue the medication.
he is active today, but yesterday he was not
Encourage him to drink plenty of water or oral rehydrating solution.
Will do thank u
If the loose stools continue to persist, you can get the stool test.
Further treatment can be started after the test.
In fact, i would suggest you to wait for a day more
to get the test done.
If stools continue to be loose and plenty tomorrow or may be later in the evening
you can get the tests.
Have you followed?
Do you have any questions?
if i have to give the stool for test, can i collect in the house and give for test
You will need to collect the container
routine stool test can be collected from home.
But if the doctor has ordered for culture or other specific test
it is better to leave the sample at the hospital.
Do you have any other question?
Thanks for consulting me.
Bye for now.
