What Causes Frequent Belching In A Child?
Could be gastritis or indigestion
THANKS FOR WRITING TO US.
BASED ON YOUR DESCRIPTION I WOULD LIKE TO SUUGEST TWO POSSIBILITIES:
1. Indigestion - This can happen if she had eaten oily food or hotel or bakery foods the previous day. This is temporary and will settle with soft bland foods. Avoid spicy oily stuff. Make her drink lot of water to keep her hydrated.
Let her eat in small quantities.
2. Gastritis due to water or food. I usually prescribe sucralfate syrup 5ml twice daily to decrease belching for such patients in my clinic.
If she develops vomiting, fever, loose stools severe stomach pain, then it could be infective causes for which you need to consult your pediatrician.
