Brief Answer: Firstly you should deworm your child. Detailed Answer: Hello XXXX Thanks for writing to XXXXXXX Mostly pain abdomen in children is not caused by serious medical problem. Worms are common reason for stomach pain in children. You can give single tablet of Albendazole 400 mg at night.It will deworm your child.It is given as single dose only. If symptoms persists then he need proper clinical examination and investigations. Other cause of pain abdomen like constipation,heart burn,food allergy,appendicitis etc should be ruled out. Investigations include routine hemogram,Urine RE/ME,stool (routine and microscopic examination),ultrasound of abdomen. Proper treatment depends upon clinical findings and investigation reports. Get well soon. Hope i have answered your query. Further queries are most welcome. Take Care Dr.Indu XXXXXXX

I am a 48-year-old, Caucasian female. I have been experiencing constipation alternating with diarrhea . There is always a pinkish to red mucus discharge with the bowel movement . This can be seen in the stool or separate - such as when I have diarrhea - and then the mucus is actually separate from the stool. It appears in a blob or ball like formation, kind of fluffy, and can range from pink to red in color. I am a cancer survivor (cervical/uterine and Thyroid). Recently (2011) diagnosed with Myasthenia Gravis . I currently work for a physician but do not wish to ask. Any information - and I know it is not a diagnosis - would be appreciated.
