Pediatrician 's  Response
Hi,
Thanks and welcome to HCM .
Stomach in a toddler may be due to urinary tract infection ,worm infestation or simle colicky pain due to indigestion.
Cyclopam syrup 3times daily will give temporary relief.
Better consult pediatrician to arrive at tha correct diagnosis .
If you like you may give a deworming agent like Albendazole empirically .
Hope this reply serves your purpose.
Please feel free to ask further queries if any.
