Gastroenterologist 's  Response
Yay I understood the prob ,but u need to detail me abt the history more specifically ,k anyway if the frequent passing of stools is associated with pain nd if it is relieved with defeacation nd if history is of more then 6 mths thn it is nthing but irritable bowel syndrome ,but we need to rule out other causes like celiac or any small bowel pathology ,if these things turn out to be normal thn its IBS ,for tht tab rifagut 550 mg bid for 2 weeks ,tab IBSCIM 2 weeks 1 tab bid,tab tryptomer 25 mg night for 3 mths diet modification may help ,nd if he is having bleeding per rectum shud go for colonoscopy to rule out causes like IBD I.e inflammatory bowel disease ....and abt ur son better to go nd consult a paediatrician or a gastroentrologist....thank u
