Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
It seems your child might have Hypertrophic pyloric stenosis or severe pylorospasm.
Kindly convey this finding to your doctor and suggest an ultrasound of the abdomen.
Domstal drops along with decolic infant drops should help.
Hypertrophic pyloric stenosis if diagnosed might require surgery.
If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.Hope this answers your query.Wishing your child a speedy recovery.Have a nice day.
