Hi XXXXXXX XXXXX

Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

Your child seems having gastritis mostly due to a virus.

Lanzol contains lansoprazole which is a proton pump inhibitor. It decreases the acid secretion in the stomach, thus causing decreased gastric irritation due gastritis and acidity.

I advise you to continue the medication as prescribed by the doctor.

Antibiotic is not required as it works for bacterial infections only.

At present, the pain in stomach and vomitings are looking like gastritis mostly due to a virus.

Antibiotic is not needed in viral infections and gastritis requires symptomatic treatment with lanzole junior, mucaine gel, and ondem.

Hope I have answered your query, if you have any clarification please let me know.

Regards.

Hi XXXXXXX XXXXX

Thank you for getting back.

You can serve him with soft diet like khichidi, dal rice without spices, and curd rice.

Milk can be given.

Boiled and cooled milk is better, as it will be easily tolerated by the child during the period of vomitings.

Avoid outside, junk, and fried food.

Hope I have answered your query, if you have any clarification please feel free to get back.

Wish your son speedy recovery.

Regards.
