Hello. My child is 3 years old. My child’s stomach condition is very bloated, and if he moves too much his body is heard once if there is water in his stomach. Then, my child also likes to complain of stomach ache. What should I do? To overcome this flatulence and what medicine? If indeed I have to see a doctor, what kind of specialist should I consult? Thank you
Good afternoon. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Flatulence can occur due to several things which can be related to the condition of the digestive tract or the surrounding layers, some things that might happen are
Diarrhea can cause a bloated stomach with abdominal pain accompanied by liquid bowel movements
Inflammation in the stomach can occur if children often eat late or like something sour
The appendix is usually the child will feel a complete abdominal pain, accompanied by fever and if left unchecked can be dangerous because it can occur rupture and irritate the stomach lining
Peritonitis or inflammation of the stomach lining is usually due to a part of the digestive tract that is damaged or broken
If this has happened for a while and does not improve, the child looks fussy, the child is difficult to eat should immediately take the child to the doctor, especially a pediatrician so that it can be done immediately. This prevents severe conditions such as inflammation of the stomach lining.
Some things you can do are
Pay attention to the child's eating and drinking conditions
Children are considered whether fussing and whether fluid conditions are met
Avoid manipulating or massage the child's abdomen
Thus the information we can convey. Thanks.
