Hello Usha and thanks for the query
Pancreatitis is uncommon at this age and it has unknown origin in some cases. You need to give your child a good effective course of antibiotic (if not given earlier). The other line of treatment is conservative and depends on the symptoms the patient is facing. So do not get woried about the USG report, inflammation of pancreas take time to recover. I what to know the symptoms your child is suffering from before giving any further advice. Write back to me.
Best Wishes
