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.

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.

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?

I have had ovarian cancer 35 years ago, and ever since have had bowels issue. These are now more troubling as I age...I am now 70. I had radiation treatments only. I have also had a perineoraphy ( spelled wrong) and the diarrhea since then has gotten worse. I get little to no warning of the need to poo and have taken to wearing diapers when I go out. In addition I now have a leakage problem. As an example, I was just sitting at my computer when I felt up and checked and liquid (brown) had just come out, staining panties and my shorts....I ve heard of collagenous colitis...could that be it?

I am currently being tested for IBS, as I have had severe bouts of constipation and diarrhea for well over a year. I have occasional blood, pencil thin, loose stools and external hemorrhoids. I am also experiencing a constant pain in my upper abdomen, coupled with severe nausea and a feeling that I am going to get sick. I had to submit a stool sample today, and I noticed that there were a lot of dark green, leafy looking substances in the stool. They were tough to the touch but tore apart when pulled. I haven't eaten any sort of green vegetable in well over a week. Any thoughts?
