Child having stomach pain. Triggers when given Benadryl, Advil. Suggestions?
My 5yr daughter has been having on-and-off stomach pains for the last 24hrs. Starts when she eats food. Pain is in the middle of her stomach. She has had bowel movement both yesterday and today though little and dry/hard. Yesterday the pain was triggered by a dose of Benedryl . Last month I noticed the same when I gave her Advil . What could be wrong?
short term stomach pain could be gastritis if not accompanied with loose stools; there is no benefit of Benadryl at all in such conditions; just give rest with semisolid soft diet is all that's needed.
