Dear XXXXXXX

Thankyou for contacting XXXXXXX with your query.

What do you mean by gas. Do you mean he burps a lot or he passess flatus. Since you have said it smells bad, I presume he passess bad smelling flatus.

Let me know few things before I can advise you further on this.
1. Is he constipated or has diarrhoea
2. Does he drink lots of milk and juices
3. Does he also have any other medical condition
4. Is he taking any medicines for any other illness

I will get back to you once you answer these.

Best wishes,

Dr Dinesh Singal

Dear XXXXXXX

He may either have lactose intolerance or some intestinal infection.

He should stop milk and juice intake completely. Though he can take curd, lassi or small amounts of fruits.

He should also XXXXXXX some local physician who can prescribe a course of locally acting antibiotics for gut along with probiotics. These measures should surely help him. If you have any more questions you can write those as well.

Best wishes,

Can you suggest some homemade medicin for flatus.

Dear XXXXXXX

I am sorry that I will not be able to tell you household remedies as I am not aware. But certainly stopping milk, juices and very sweet eatables will help him. Adding pancreatic enzymes to the diet may also help.
