Having sulfur burps, sickness, diarrhea, stool orange. Should I be worried?

Hi, my son had awful sulphur burps two weeks ago which lasted for about 3 days and then he had one case of sickness and diarrhea he has been ok until today and the sulphur burps have come back again and he says his stools are orange. Should I be worried? Could it just be another stomach upset? He has always had a poor reflux and does tend to burp quite alot, i took him to the doctors a couple of years ago because they smelt bad but more of a urine type smell than egg. He was just given gaviscon to take after each meal and it seemed to do the trick. He is 14yrs old and is generally healthy.

Hi,

Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

It may be due to another infection with stomach bug as there are smelly burps with alteration of stool.

For burps, child can be given a prokinetic drug like domperidone in prescribed dose.

For loose stools, give one oral probiotic and ORS.

Maintain and monitor his hydration.

Consult the doctor for examination and for prescription of medication.

Hope I have answered your query.

Regards.
