Brief Answer:
BONNISAN

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

It is very common in children of his age to avoid foods. This can happen in condition like flatulence or even considering taste.

I suggest you to give him Syp BONNISAN 5ml twice daily before food. This increases his hunger and improve his intake.

Hi doctor, I am 28year male and is suffering from frequent and excessive flatulence . My bowel movements are fine but the stool is smelly and loose (like a thick paste) in nature. Colonoscopy , endoscopy and ultrasound turned out to be fine. I daily go to the toilet two times in the morning but whatever the case, the flatulence starts by late afternoon. I have changed my diet quite a lot of times but have not found any improvement. I had taken Rifagut for quite some time and it is effective as long as the medicine is taken. As soon as the medication is stopped, the symptoms are back again. What could be the reason for the loose stools and for the flatulence?

Maybe an exercise I can be doing or even a surgical procedure that can fix it??
