Question: My 5.5 year daughter is suffering from fever last night , mild diarrhea and stomach pain and body pain. Once vomited last night. Appears to be a infection in stomach. She is a normal kid otherwise. She weighs 18kg. Had little bit of idly this morning. Loose stools once this morning. She had food outside before this must be the reason for contamination. Now sleep and tired. Trying to keep her hydrated. How to treat this ?

Brief Answer:
Probably food poisoning

Detailed Answer:
hi,
welcome to hcm. can understand your concern point

Fever with vomiting and loose stool is most probably due to acute gastroenteritis due to food poisoning. It is because she has taken something from outside as you have said.

the main thing that we have to take care is to prevent dehydration in child, so you have to give mo flute to child. O r s solution should be given to the child. since your child weight is 18 kilogram, in my opinion, you should give cefixime-50 syrup 5 ml 3 times a day for 3 days and antiemetic syrup like syrup ondem 5 ml 3 times a day for 1 day. These are prescribed medicines, You can get them prescribed by the local doctor. A prebiotic like enterogermina ampule once a day should be given for 3 days to increase gut immunity. give more​ fluid to child. Give soft diet to child.

If there is no improvement in 24 hours, decreased​ activity, persistent vomiting or loose stools then you should get the child examined by doctor immediately. And examination by doctor is also necessary so that we may not miss any important finding.

I hope this will help you. Wishing your child good health. take care.

Detailed Answer:
hi,
welcome once again.

Nutrolin b and enterogermina is same but because enterogermina is already made so it is somewhat superior and hygienic then neutrolin b.

prebiotic supplement increase is intestinal immunity and it is helpful when taking antibiotic.

it should be taken after the antibiotic. yes you can also give zincovit syrup but it is a multivitamin and it will not help in acute disease. It will help after the disease is controlled and cured by antibiotic and prebiotic. You can give zincovit syrup after the child is well.

take care.
