Brief Answer: Yes you can give Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for writing to health care magic. You can give sucrafil and lanzol at the current dose. It should be safe. Continue for a week or so to see improvement if the pain is due to gastritis. However because it's been there for 7 months I would like to suggest ultrasound abdomen, stool and urine routine and deworming her if not done already Regards Dr Arun

Brief Answer: May not be food related Detailed Answer: Pain can be due to other conditions apart from gastritis. May not be related to food. You need to workup further as suggested to rule out rare causes like intestinal problems , do diverticulitis, nodes, etc Arun
