It could be due to infection of the gut.

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Stomach pain could be due to infection of the gut.
Somac can be helpful.But,Panadol is of not much use.
Smell from behind could be due to bacteria in the Colon.It may also cause pain.Smell also depends on the food he is taking.
Usually, I prescribe Antibiotic like Rifaximine tablet along with Pre and Probiotic capsule, an Anti spasmodic tablet containing Dicyclomine to my patients with similar complaints. Results were very good.
Avoid outside food.Stop Non vegetarian food for few days.
Nothing to worry. It will come down.
Hope I answered your query. If you have any questions, I will clarify further.
Wish you good health.
Regards
