Thank you for the query.
This is true, Mevicol is for constipation
, not for diarrhea.
Every diarrhea which lasts more than 48 hours should be diagnosed with stool test
and stool culture test. Most likely your daughter has an infectious diarrhea (most common reason). Other possible reasons are gluten intolerance, food allergy
, partial bowels obstruction (abdominal pain
should be also present).
It definitely lasts too long. I suggest you to find another doctor and have mentioned tests done. In a meanwhile please remember to give sufficient amount of fluids.
Hope this will help.
