Suggest Medication For Abdominal Pain

Last Saturday my daughter aged 9 years old, suddenly started complaining of abdomen pain just below ribs. I took her to one Dr. who advised to get done some tests.

In DLC : Polymorth 69%, Lymphocyte 25%, PCV 38.2%

In KFT : Serum Creatinine 0.28 mg/dl., Serum Uric Acid 2.4 mg/dl

and rest of the results like USG, KFT, Urine routine & culture. Please advice.

Thanks Kain Ashok

HI Kain Ashok.
Thanks for your query.
You have not posted all the reports and looks to be normal , as posted on and as rest of them you have not mentioned.

Since the child is just 9 years old, the history can not be very much clear and there is difficulty in getting the appropriate sign too.

The causes of pain in abdomen in a 9 year child are as follows :
-Tummy tonsils- meaning enlargement of the lymph nodes of the abdomen.
-Appendicitis- by default this has to be ruled out in every case of pain in -abdomen of a child.
-Worms.
The best diagnosis is a high resolution ultrasonography. some blood, urine and stool tests.
A therapeutic trial with a course of an antibiotic, metronidazole and probiotics under the guidance of a pediatrician / Surgeon always helps to solve the problem and to get a diagnosis.
Also given is a dose of medicines active against worms in intestine.

I hope a consultation with a Pediatric Surgeon, investigations and a course of an antibiotic and metronidazole should solve the problem.
If this is indicative of appendicitis , please go for the surgery of appendectomy.
I find this answer helpful
