Brief Answer: Identify the cause.and approrpriate treatment Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for writing to health care magic. Mesentric lymph node enlargement more than 5 mm is definitely significant. There are a number of causes commonly diarrhoea,worms, intestinal or respiratory infection, tuberculosis, inflammation, and so on. Your kid needs complete workup. The current medications are just appetizers. You need to start with blood count, CT abdomen, urine and stool tests for routine. The treatment is based on the cause identified. Regards Dr Arun
