My daughter is 2 years and 10 months old. From past 3 weeks back, she had indigestion problem and it went off after the medication. From past 1 week, she is complaining about stomach pain once in a while. can you please suggest any medication for this? is it because of worms in the stomach?
Likely to be due to worm infestation

Greetings of the day
Dear Ms XXXXXXX
Two commonest cause of stomach pain in this age group are
1. Worm infestation
In the absence of vomiting, no distension of abdomen there is no cause for concern.
You can deworm the child with single dose of Syrup Albndazole 400 mg (irrespective of body weight). Also Hyoscine Butyl Bromide syrup which is antispasmodic will provide the much needed relief.
Do get back to me if you need any further assistance, will be glad to assist you.
Wishing you and your family a very happy and healthy life

could you please advise?
Single dose of Albendazole
The dosage is Syrup Albendazole 400 mg one single dose once only.
It is important that you start introducing a variety of food in your toddler's diet gradually. These will provide the calories, proteins, vitamins and minerals that are essential for his growth. The amount of food eaten would vary from child to child and would also depend on when you introduce a particular food to your toddler. Most of the times it is "Try and Error" method. Lots of patience would be required from your end to find out what is that diet which tickles your toddlers tastebuds which also contains maximum nutrients. You need to try multiple ones and find which your child loves to eat amongst those. Initially it may be difficult from shifting to solid/semi-solid feed from milk based diet, continued perseverance and trying out what the baby likes is the key.
