Detailed Answer:
hi and welcome to hcm.
Abdominal pain is non specific symptom and you need to give me some more details. If there is associated fever, nausea,diarrhea or vomit then may be caused by infections such as parasitic infection or salmonella. if this lasts for longer period then it may be inflammatory bowel disease,iBS or diverticulosis. in first case,you need to have easier diet,plenty of fluids and probiotics. in second case , you should do colonoscopy to rule out intraluminal diseases especially if there is blood or mucous in stool. Wish you good health. Regards

Hi, I have two questions. For a couple of years I have been finding white discharge coming from my butthole. I was wondering what this means, or if it means I have a parasitic infection. Also, for a few years I've had this white crust/dry skin on the backs of my ears. I had eczema patches on my scalp when I was a kid, so I was wondering if it was that.

My 8 yr old grandson was a healthy, chubby baby in the 50th percentile on the growth charts until he was about 8-9 months. He began to slide, and dropped off the scale completely by the time he was 6 yrs old. He now weighs 42 lbs., his younger 6 yr old sister weighs 45 lbs., and his average sized 4 yr old little brother now weighs almost the same. He has a very good appetite, yet isn t catching up. He also has dark rings under his eyes, and is always sick with something. His pediatrician tested for celiac disease twice now, but the tests come back negative. The term FTT has been floated around, however a cause or treatment has not been offered. Our daughter & Son-in-law feel lost with no idea where to go next. I am wondering if there could be a parasitic infection? They family has always had pet dogs. The one they had at the time my grandson was born developed serious gum and heart disease, and was later euthanized. Since then they have had another dog which struggles to maintain a healthy weight, and frequently will eat her own excrement. Should this be a possible focus of investigation?
