Infant with diarrhea. Could it be due to teething? - Online Doctor Chats
how can I help u today ?
My child is 19 months
she is getting her tooths
from 2 days she is getting loose motion
her weight is around 10 kg
Is it watery ? any foul smell ?
any issues with eating ? appetite decreased ?
is she able to speak or respond to your speech ?
yes, she is able to speak and respond
is she playing well or feels weak and is sleepy ?
she is very active,
since the last 2 days ?
once today, and three times yesterday
most likely, she may be having a food poisoning
is it food poisoning
you can give her some ORS solutions like electral powder with water, to keep her hydrated
i tought because of teeth it is
teething does not result in loose stools
just continue with the ORS, and continue proper feeding , as and when she wants
in the night, i try to give more food, that is dal and rice quantity is more, is it because of that
in case she develops high fever, vomiting, and if the diarrhea worsens (increases in volume and Frequency) within the next 24 hours, or if your child appears less active, she may need a course of antibiotics , and supportive medications
no, that is not the reason
In such a condition, she might need to be seen by a pediatrician, who give examine her and give her the proper medications
Her pediatrician has suggested Entergeromine
you can give her that
His name is Mr. XXXXXXX Anwekar
Her weight is 10 kg, is that ok for a 19 months old child
yes, that is adequate , no issues with that
any tonics for her. I want to start some tonic
You can give her , Chyavanprash ONCE IN THE day and once in the evening
please suggest if i should give enterogerime or arrow root, which would be good and effective
or PEDIASURE, (protien supplement) can also be given to her
ok, i will start withe pediasure.
both are fine
Arrowroot, is a traditional medication, which has good benefits
enterogerime , will also help improve digestion and absorption , so you can give that too
i was giving pediasure earlier but stopped now
one more thing
because of winter, she cheeks are getting reddish and rough, please suggest wat should i apply on her cheeks
avoid using harsh soaps
try Sandal wood soaps or Dove , pears like soaps
they will solve the issue
johnsons soup would be good?
yes, you can use that
ok thanks doctor
You are welcome
take care and have a good day
