Brief Answer:
Cry no drops assuming lactose intolerance

Detailed Answer:
Hello

Thanks for asking on this platform

I can understand your concern.'Cry No' drops contains Lactase enzyme which helps in absorption of lactose(present in milk)and is used in case of lactose intolerance when there is qualitative or quantitative defect in production of lactase enzymes in the body.
I would like to know the current age of your baby.
It is usually prescribed for babies under 6 months of age who do not tolerate breast milk or lactose based formula.Symptoms of intolerance are excessive crying,loose stool,redness in perianal area,excessive gas formation and poor feeds.
If excessive cry could not be explained by clinical examination(on examination there is no abnormality) and otherwise baby is healthy,Colic is considered to be the most common cause.In most of the cases the exact cause of colic could not be made out but giving colic medicine like Simethicon/Dicycomine(a form of antispasmodic) helps in this condition.
Lactase can also provide help but only when the colic is caused by lactose
intolerance.
I don't think the 'Cry no' drops would be helpful if there are no other signs of lactose intolerance.

I hope this helps.
Please let me know if you have any more query.
Regards

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?
