Welcome to Healthcare Magic,

Sometimes undigested food particle is present in stool if the frequency is more than usual but not necessary it to call it Diarrhoea.If the child is active and playful THEN NO NEED TO WORRY.

thanks.

Probably there is gastroenteritis. Your child needs to get stool sample tested for infections and if present proper therapy needed. Keep the child well hydrated with WHO ORS but if your child is not feeding well or weak and letahrgic he needs to be taken to the Doctor.

If this diarrhea is long standing and with no apparent ill health to child this may probably be due to toddlers diarrhea which requires no treatment and settles with time 'Any way do stool full report of child and make sure no pathogenic causes or metabolic causes are involved .Monitor child's weight and if marked impairment noticed need investigations

Hi' the symtoms are & age of baby suggest teething problem-where baby bites everything she can! this causes infection of the bowels . - If there is blood or mucus in stools please give syrup ampicillin 15 drops thrice a day+ syrup metrogyl same dose+breast milk(if baby is still breast fed)OR  ORS . -If the stools are otherwise normal, simple DEpendal suspention !% drops 3 times along with breast milk or ORS would suffice.
Thanks

hello, welcome to HCM. Loose motions in infants are very common due to gastroenteritis. They are usually self resolving and no medication is required unless there is blood or mucus in stools. You just need to keep feeding the babay and hydrate more using ORS. But it would be advisable to have stool and blood test done in case the diarrhoea is prolonged. Wish your child good health.

Usually, temporary "indigestion" in infants can be due to a viral attack on the stomach. Teething can also produce a day or two of fever, vomiting, loose stools, irritability and crying with tummyache. The more worrisome problem could be gastroenteritis, in which case, the child must be seen by a doctor. I suggest that you continue to give breastfeeds, normal weaning diet and also oral rehydration salts solution (ORS) till (s)he recovers. This may take a few days to about 3-4 days at the most.

Hi there. I am a 27 year old female. I am a vegetarian and have been for about 10 years and I am also active and fairly fit. I noticed about a year ago that sometimes (normally after a night of drinking) that my body would become swollen. Most noticably in my abdomen but also the fingers, feet, legs and even face. It didnt happen often and my body would return to normal after 1 or 2 days. A few months ago, it happened again but this time it was really only in my abdomen and it was persistant. I became bloated and it lasted for days, would go away for a few, then return with no real trigger. It has become so uncomfortable (and sometimes my stomach is quite sore but I think that is due to the muscles being pushed outward so far) that I am now on an elimination diet. I have be gluten and dairy free for almost 3 weeks now but with no real noticible changes. I have also mostly cut caffine out of my diet. I am also still quite regular. I started taking a probiotic made called Align which contains the bacterium strain Bifantis. I read that in studies it has shown to help reduce IBS or SIBO symptoms. I have only been taking this for about 5 days now though. I think that I have had almost every test done on me that can be and my doctor has recommended seeing a specialist but I was told that this could take several months. I have had blood tests which ruled out any infection causes like an ulcer or liver damage or celiacs or things like that. I also had a Barium Enema which came back saying everything was fine except that my intestine was a little redundant . I also had a ultrasound which ruled out any cancer or cysts. This problem is greatly affecting my way of life. I am losing confidence in myself and maybe even becoming a little depressed as I feel disgusting almost every day. Last week I had almost no bloating at all and was so excited but it ruled out alcohol as a trigger because I had had some drinks the evening before. Do you have any idea what this could possibly be? I have a feeling it is not a food intolerance. I think that for some reason my body has just stopped being able to properly digest food regardless of whether it is gluten or dairy or vegetables. Is this possible? If you have any ideas of what this might be or what more I can do I would greatly appreciate the advice. I truly cannot stand to be in this discomfort much longer and am willing to do or try anything!

Good day I have a colic baby. She is two and a half months old and her biggest problem is winds. Most can be expelled via burping however she often has winds/gas in her intestines which causes her great pain and discomfort. Would milk of magnesiun or any other remedy for indigestion help?

Hi, i am writing on behalf of a friend. He had been diagnosed with having IBS when he was 13, without a colonoscopy, and now he is 25. He has been having abdominal pain and interchanges of diarrhea and constipation all these years but a month ago it suddenly got really worse (after having some fish, but even if it was bad, he had never experienced such excruciating pain again), as in one day he started to ache so much he couldn't get up off the floor. It was like stabbing and ripping him apart. He went to the hospital and had blood work done and an X-ray and they said it was normal but suggested a colonoscopy but he didn't go through with it. Ever since he has been having really severe abdominal pain and interchanges of diarrhea and constipation and he has been to several doctors, one prescribing him with amitriptyline and antibiotics for the intestine, and another after that giving him mebeverine hydrochloride alone. He took the antibiotics and amitriptyline for almost a month and it helped him a bit but in the evening he would none the less have the return of the severe pain in his entire abdomen, sometimes centering on the left upper side of it. Then he went to the other doctor who perscribed mebeverine hydrochloride, telling him it would instantly help, without that being the case when he tried it. He had extensive blood work done and everything was normal, no inflammation or anemia, and the doctor said he didn't need anything else and should just take the mebeverine. But he is still in pain and i was wondering if it could be something else with these symptoms. Should he have a colonoscopy or some other less painful test? He also has Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease.

I had a discectomy 2wks ago for a ruptured disk. Since then I have had several bouts of nausea, vomiting and either constipation or diarrhea. I had my post op followup today but I wasnt given an opportunity to speak or let anyone know how i was feeling. Upright, check- ok see you in a month type appt. I no longer get any hunger pains at all, food smells and tastes bad. Should I be concerned with this plus the vomiting, (I wake up with severe headaches and usually vomit soon after). Is this normal?

Hi I came back from India 10 days ago with a diarrhea... it subsided but I have been experiencing discomfort in my stomach ever since.... my doctor gave me Ranitidine 150 mg (twice daily) to make the acidity go away... but I'm still alternately constipated or have an urge to go. Also I noticed my stools are olive greenish in color... it is really bothering me... any help or good advice appreciated. Should I be tested for H.Pylori or something more serious? It has been ten days already.
