Abdominal pain, diagnosed with faecal impaction, poor appetite. Suggest medication

Hi, my 2 years old daughter has abdominal pain that comes every 15 to 30 minutes. When it comes she screams a lot. It lasts for a minute or two. Sometimes she passes smelly wind and pain stops. It wakes her up at night many times. We have been to A&E twice but they didn't find anything wrong. First time they told it was fecal impaction and second time they told it may be due to virus. Pain is there for three days already. No vomiting, poor appetite. Didn't pass stool yesterday or today, but passed two days ago, soft stool but not diarrhoea.

Hi ! Once your child has a fecal impaction, it is likely to recur. You have not mentioned about the dietary habit of your child. See that she eats more roughage and drinks adequate amount of water. It is seen that one tea spoonful of honey daily does wonders in constipation and impaction in youngsters. You should avoid giving her fast foods which may cause constipation. Go for a routine stool test for ova and cysts and consult your doctor if there is any positive finding over there. I wish an early recovery for your child.

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum.
Thanks for choosing H.C.M.Forum.
Your 2 years daughter had abdominal pain, with a gap of 30 minutes. the wind is smelly, and pain stops on passing wind.
The pain could be due to Vitamin medicines, new diet like veining foods, constipation, infection etc.
I advise you to consult a pediatric specialist for diagnosis and treatment. She may have to use anti spasmodics, anti biotics, etc for relief.
Wishing her a quick and complete recovery.
Best regards.
