u should tell about his weight & height. he is in school so there may be chance of infection in school.
is these motion started since birth or lateron. is motion started after started eating food. is there any association of motion with food or milk. go for stool test , one is routine microscopy & other culture for fungus & bacterial.
is ur son eat soul (picca). give albendazole 400mg 1 tab. for 1 night & reapet after 15 days.
if ur son is malnourished, there may be chance of coeliac disease. go for tTG IgA antibody to diagnose for celaic disease. consult with pediatrician

loose stools causes more death in children, home remedy itself can prevents death. give him plenty of water in the form of tender coconut, electral powder, sporolac sachets. if the baby is less active, not feeding well then taken to hospital.

Take to pediatrician, get a check done. Ask if the doc can prescribe Sporilac for him.

Does he drink milk many times in a day, this could be milk allergy. so get tested by a doctor before it goes worse. I think i know only about this

I am a 34 year old female, with episodes of chronic migraine headaches which present themselves with an onset of what seems to be an epileptic seizure in my abdominals. The stomach involuntarily contracts for a period of 30 to 45 seconds, subsides for a few minutes, and then occurs again until vomiting results. The following day or two I have symptoms of a migraine headaches, vomiting for 12 ro 24 hours, followed by nausea, sensitivity to light and sound, and in one instance I had an episode where I could not speak or write. My doctor thinks I have abnormal migraines, however, the symptoms occur three days prior to my menses- and when I am under a great deal of stress. I have been experiencing these abdominal migraines or abdominal epileptic seizures- which ever they are called- for a period of 23 years approximately every cycle. They get worse if I eat dairy, yellow cheese, meat, wheat, sugar, onions, and too much chocolate, or smell chemicals, diesel fuel, or bleach. I have received an endoscopy which came back normal, I was tested for Celiacs disease, and that came back normal. I feel frustrated because I cannot get a definitive answer about this condition. I just want an answer about this condition which with my current insurance, I cannot get the tests necessary to diagnose whatever I have. I would be happy to volunteer for a medical study for Abdominal Epilepsy or Migraines if it could lead to a diagnosis. I think this could help me to lead a more normal life, and possibly treatment for this condition. What is your advice for me, considering this has effected every aspect of my life, family, career and health.

can using mirilax for 3 years due to chronic constipation in an autistic child now 10 lead to green stools? He has had green stools and turns water green for last 3 weeks, they are loose and he is more tired than usual. Or is it more likely gluten intolerance or something else?

doctor1 MD

My blood work showed signs of sprue, but my biopsy came back negative for Celiac Disease... I was told that this means I still have a gluten sensitivity so I've been on a gluten free diet since March. I felt wonderful up until a few weeks ago when my intestinal pains returned. My doctor now has me taking fiber as well and I'm not so sure any of this makes sense. They feel exactly like the pains I was experiencing before, so how can they have two different causes? And is there a chance that I don't have a gluten sensitivity after all?

doctor1 MD

What would be the cost for the answer to this question. Getting an oily discharge with my stool. Also gas pains. I'm a male 67 years old.
