Hi Karen, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
May be you should bet him Examined by a Pediatrician to rule out if he has a Viral Infection, He may need a blood work up and a Ultrasound abdomen scan to rule out the exact cause. Until the cause is found out and treated, OTC medicines will just give Symptomatic relief with frequent recurrence.

Good Luck.
