Brief Answer:
Some medications recommended, you will need to have some tests also

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thank you for bringing up you query, I care fully read it and understand your concerns related to it.

It is obvious you are having a chronic condition with your bowel and stomach as you seem to be having these on and off for a while.

For symptome relieve at the moment I would recommend you
1. Omeprazole 20 mg 2 tb a day till you get a prescription for further treatment
2. If you can not access Omeprazole quickly you might also use over the counter antiacids that are sold in supermarkets or in pharmacies- normally no need for prescription for those.
3. Something to help with burps is Domperidone, take one tablet twice a day
4. Psillium is a good fiber addition that I would try to help with the bowel movements to be better formed and normal frequency
5. probiotics (enterogermina) are good to restore the bowel flora and might bring some improvement.
6. avoid milk for 2-3 weeks and see if this helps- you can still have cheese and yogurt

The above treatment will probably help with your symptoms but will not resolve the cause of it so you will need to have some checks as this seems a chronic issue and you will need a precise diagnosis and further treatment based on diagnosis.

So what I would recommend is:
- have a visit with your doctor
- he might need to have some tests like stools for ova and parasites (this might need to be repeated 3 times to rule out parasite infection), stool culture, the doctor might ask for an endoscopy of the stomach to check for peptic ulcer disease; rarely a colonoscopy (an endoscopy of the bowel) is needed.
- Tests to rule out gluten intolerance might be needed also.


I hope this is helpful to you and answers to your questions but please feel free to contact me in case more clarifications are needed related to this. I would be glad to explain the results of the tests when you have them available and follow up on them.

I wish you quick improvement

Kind Regards

Dr Antoneta Zotaj

Hi, My 2 yr old son is suffering from stomach infection for 2 weeks now. Initially he was not given any medication except Enterogermina Oral Suspension (5ml/day) and Z&D DS 20 (1 ml/day). However, now there is mucous in his very watery smelly greenish stool. Doctor has prescribed CEFOLAC 100 (3ml twice a day for 5 days). Is it safe to use this antibiotic for a 2 year old kid?

Hello. I am currently living in XXXXXX. I have been having diarrhea for the past several days. I ve just gone to the pharmacist and was given Enterogermina (3 vials of 2 billion spores of polyantibiotic) and Debby ( nifuroxazide ). Are the right thing to be taking? The Debby seems ok but the Enterogermina makes me nervous....and if it s a antibiotic surely I d need more than three vials? Also, are there any side effects to these drugs? Thanks!
