Suffering from Diarrhea. Stool test showed Bacilli and mucus is +. Meaning? - Online Doctor Chats
Hi ..This is XXXXXXX .
How are you doing?
Fine Doctor..thanks..how are you??
I am good
How can I help you?
i am having son who is 1 1/1 year old Who for the past 1 week he was having motion like Diahorrea.
We took him to the doctor and asked whether we can take a motion test. he also said Yes.We took. In that test report, they mentioned Bacilli is + and Mucus is +.
So did they start him on an antibiotic?
Can you please tell what the above said + means for..??
It means that bacilli and mucus a present
it is good or bad..Can you plse tell?
This means that your child has an infection
This needs to be treated with an antibiotic and plenty of fluids
Okay..but .... ..they told report is fine..Nothing to worry about..No need to go for medicines..
Did they do a stool culture?
Is your child fine now.. which means he has no diarrhoea?
No.No tnow..he is fine..
Your child's body has dealt with an infection
If bacteria were present, a stool culture was needed
This would help us know the exact bacteria and which drugs were needed
can we able to cure it with the food..
Since this has passed, and he is fine now, there is no need to give him any medication
No, food is a supplement
It cant take care of an infection
okay...any foods can be avoided during this time..
When did the diarrhoea stop?
..only one time it happened two days back..
noe he is all right..
Then we are good
Give him a healthy and balanced diet
You dont need to stop anything
Just no outside food and water
Okay but i am very afraid that anything will happen for him even after he got cured.
No, nothing will happen
Its very common for children to have diarrhoea, XXXXXXX
They would have it almost 3-4 times a year
can he eat all the fruits..
He should be eating everything you're eating at this age
sweet lime , pome, tender cocunet
But no outside food or water and make sure his hands are clean before he sits down to eat
but he likes snacks items note than the food we prepare and not opening his mouth for more that 4 times.
You'll have to run around him
Give him a small piece of food in his hand
after that he spits the food after having 4 or 5 spoons.so he is so leen which makes me feel so bad..
He'll have it on his own
Beeak the food into small bite sized pieces
Just give him 1 piece
also, try and make it colorful
children are attracted to colors
before one year for him he will be cute and chubby and now he is so leen without having any food..is this the age that all children wil be like this.??
It becomes difficult to feed children
Your paediatrician must be maintaining a growth chart
If he is growing well, you dont need to worry
yes..he is..but whenever we goes to him he tells everything is fine only and not need to go for any medicines..
thats very good actually XXXXXXX
Lots of physicians over prescribe.
okay..doctor...then i will try to give food for him bits and pieces and see for another few more moths about his health..
He is fine, XXXXXXX
You dont need to get worried
I can assure you that
thanks a lot for your valuable advice doctor...its valuable and really now i am feeling good to loo after him with care..
Thanks for consulting me
Have a nice day
Bye for now
thank you and have a nice day ahead..
