Suggest treatment for stomach pain and mucoid stools in a child
My baby boy is 2.5 yrs now and weighs 12kgs. for last 4 days he has been suffering from acute stomach pain and after every meal he is passing stool 2-3 times. though the stool is normal it is full of mucus type slimy substance. At times he is passing only mucus unawared. vizylac syrup 5 ml twice daily is just not helping. He has lost his appetite completely and is loosing weight also. PLEASE HELP
Weight of the child is normal for the age. The child is suffering from food intolerance / allergy. Cut the sugary, starchy substances. Do not give fruit juices, carbonated drinks. Give home rice kanji, idly etc. Also, give a dose of Zinc syp for 14 days. He will recover soon.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
