What causes watery stool with mucous? - Online Doctor Chats
Please proceed with your query
My name is XXXXXXX and I am trying to get help for my son 6 year old boy - who has diarrhea since moirning
He is in train at the moment
Is there any medecation I ned to look for to give him?
By diarrhea do you mean he has loose and watery stool
He also has fever
How many episodes of loose stools did he have since morning?
about 8 - 10 times since morning
in about 9 hours duration
Do you have any idea if the stools contained mucous particle or blood?
Are you there?
Yes looks like it contained mucus
Let me brief you.
It was light yellow in colour
It is most likely caused by an infective source.
In such cases it would be harmful to put him on medicines to stop diarrhea.
In this circumstances I would advice him to continue drinking plenty of fluids with ORS.
Give him rice gruel or coconut water for additional electrolytes.
This is available as tablets or powdered XXXXXXX
He can take them three times a day.
If he continues to have more loose stools say by tomorrow, he is advised to see a doctor for physical examination and stool tests.
If needed antibiotic therapy can be started.
Have you followed?
Yes doctor! So, I can ask for sporolac or bifilac in a pharmacy?
Yes. It comes both as tablets or XXXXXXX
You can ask for one of these.
But at the moment I will continue with the ORS preparation
If you use XXXXXXX the powder should be mixed in a small bowl of water and taken.
Continue the ORS for now. That's most important.
You can watch the symptoms only until tomorrow.
Yes Doctor! Ok. This was very helpful!
if the symptoms persist, seek medical attention at the nearest hospital.
Do you have any more questions?
I think I got all the answers! Thanks a lot Doctor
It was very helpful!
Thanks for consulting me.
Bye for now.
