hi my baby girl is 1 year 10 month old, she is having loose motion from last night. it s in the beginning stage. she was going for 6 time last 24 hours. from morning i gave enterogermina suspension (1-0-1) and started to give nor-metrogyl syrup from evening (2.5-?-2.5) should i give 5ml of nor-metrogyl or continue with 2.5 ml should i give afternoon also. (i have misplaced the slip of Dr about the dosage, Plz guide me) whenever she is having any sort of infection (while having cold, fever diarrhea ) her hand & leg paw will be warmer then usual i have observed it from more then 1 year. is my observation is true. what should i do about it. Is nor-metrogyl antibiotic , will it clear infections or any other medicine needed for infections. my kid is much vulnerable to infections as pediatrician say, is there any well known heath drink for baby around 2 yrs. waiting for the reply thanks in advance

unless untill u see blood in the stool dont give antibiotics(nor-metrogyl,etc). give ORS-L to prevent dehydration(children like usually apple flavor). Stop milk products,milk and wheat,cereals,fruits. give rice,pomegranate juice,dal,(do not force to eat)..

Pls consult a pediatrician, my above recommendations are till u see a pediarician.

Our baby had continuous loose motions and when we consulted a paediatrician, he suggested nor metrogyl 3.75 ml 2 times a day. Many doctors we have consulted say that was not a right thing to do. Our baby is just under 6 months old. Is this a cause for concern?

Hello Sir, My 1 year 4 month old baby is having loose motions, 4-5 times a day for the last 1 week. He passes stool everytime he takes his meal or milk and sometimes in between also. What medication will suit him. Is 3 ml nor-metrogyl syrup 2 times a day ok? Loose motions could be due to teething or due to cold weather (no other symptoms of cold), not necessarily due to some infection. Please guide me.

4 year old son has the following symptoms.: abdominal distention, diarrhea, and vomiting for 1 week. Vomiting sunsided and abdominal distention persists, regular stool and stomach pain ( upper stomach- just below the rib cage in the middle). He was put on Zofran for nausea, 3 week course of Clarithro and Amoxicillin since H pylori cam back positive - done by pediatrician. Meanwhile the gastroenterologist did EGD post abx therapy said biopsy is normal and stomach looks fine and that his symptoms should resolve. HEr belief is that the nausea and abdominal pain is a result of a bad gastroenteritis. It has now been 6 weeks and the diarrhea returned for 24 hours with vomiting for 12 hours. HE now continues with the stomach pain which comes and goes and what he describes as his stomach rumbling for food. He has been on Prevacid for 5 weeks. Upper GI with follow thru is normal. IS there something else wrong?? PEdiatrician blood test for lactose and gluten sensitivity were negative. What could be the cause of this chronic stomach pain with nausea?
