Hi Doctor, My baby is 5.5 months old he had loose motion a week back and a doctor recomended Trifix 1.5 ml twice a day and Bifilac Sachet after giving these the number of timed he passed stool was reduced and then few days after we stopped medication he started again. We did a stool full report and the results were all normal except pus cells 100 hpf and reaction acidic. Then we went to another doctor and she prescribed Taxim syrup 3ml twice a day for 5 days. After 5 days the stool report indicated pus cells as 40 hpf. But all these time the baby is fully normal and active. After seen the 2nd report yesterday doctor asked to stop the medication and wait for another week or so to monitor him. But since last night he pooped 4 times till now.

hi i have a newborn she is 3 weeks old. she is breastfed and feeds often with many wet nappies per day. she poos on average only every 2nd day. a few days ago her weight confirmed she has put on almost 500gms in 1 week. Howover the last 24 hours she has been very unsettled, with a bloated tummy which has been making alot of loud gurgling noises all day, accompanied by 3 soiled nappies but only lightly soiled with very watery yellow poo. she keeps wanting to feed but it seems only for comfort as her tummy seems very full and hard. she sounds like she is constantly straining which makes her bring up small amounts of milk even as long as 40mins after a feed. what do you think is wrong with her and what should i do to settle her if she is already full?

I do have gential herpes, I did deliver my son naturally, they said they didn t see anything. I am breastfeeding. They gave me valacyclovirif I feel like I m having a breakout I would take it. When I feel like I m having a breakout I will get itchy. He would only get something if I had it on my nipple, I never did.should I stop breastfeeding or just get a pump and do both. It looks like a regular white hear, but why would it be there for a week.. Please help. Thank you
