Hello,

Since your son was ill with enteritis recently, you need to take special precaution regarding his hygiene and also food preparation. He should always wash his hands before eating, always give him boiled water, let him have only home made food. Use clean utensils to cook, avoid cross contamination.

Do not give him left overs. He should take home made fresh warm food. Give him small meals 5-6 times a day. Give him food that is easily digestible and well cooked. Do not give raw fruits or veggies, it will trigger indigestion and cause gastritis or acid reflux. You can give him digestives (Aristozyme) and Omeprazole 150, one SOS when needed.

Keep him well hydrated and boiled food will be better. Avoid giving oily spicy junk food. Give him juice, soups and beverage. You are suggested to get him clinically examined and get blood workouts, urinalysis, stool tests and required Imaging tests done to detect the pathology causing him discomfort. This is to stay on the safer side.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Nupur K., General & Family Physician
