ENT Specialist Dr. Puneet Maheshwari's  Response
hi, welcome to healthcare magic,

After reading your childs history, it is clear that your child is suffering from GI upset.

The possibilities are--

1- Worm infestation, which is very common, in children.
2- Viral infecton, usually it occurs after an attack of acute viral infection.
3- Child is suffering from dehydration.
4- Amoebiasis or giardiasis...but in your case the possibilities are rare, reason is that he is suffering from constipation, while in amoebiasis, it causes diarrhoea.

What you will have to do now---

1- Give him exclusive breast feed, if possible, the purpose is to maintain hydration, secondly, the breast milk is rich in antibodies that helps to fight ahainst the organisms like virus, bacteria, amoeba etc.

2- Consult a paediatrician, the doctor will prescribe him, syp albendazole with ivermectin for 7-10 days.

3- The doctor will also prescribe you an antibiotic syrup.

4- Maintain proper hygine of your baby.

Dont worry, this is not a serious condition, please just follow the above instructions and he will be all rite in a week.

hope this will help you.
