Abdominal Pain In Children Has Been 2 Weeks?
I want to ask my child that my child has been suffering from stomach pain for almost 2 weeks, yesterday he was treated at the hospital 2 days after returning home from the hospital, my child vomited, and until now my child often comes out in cold sweat and still complains of pain in the stomach. That’s why the doctor and my child should be taken to the hospital where you are sick again? Thank you doctor.
Hi Andi Susandi,
Abdominal pain in children can be caused by various causes including:
Gastrointestinal problems, such as gastroenteritis, appendicitis, abdominal trauma, peritonitis, constipation Urinary tract problems, such as urinary tract infections, ureteral stones Problems with the hepatobiliary system (liver and bile ducts), such as hepatitis, pancreatitis, cholecystitis hematology (associated with bleeding or blood clots) Food poisoning or certain chemicals As a result of other diseases that also cause symptoms of abdominal pain as a concomitant Because of the many possible causes of a child can get an upset stomach, a combination of history taking (interviews about the history of the disease), physical examination , and supporting examinations by doctors are needed. Must be removed first history of trauma to the abdomen, such as collisions or blows in the abdomen, to rule out the possibility of bleeding abdominal organs which are certainly life threatening. Other symptoms such as fever also help determine the cause of stomach pain. Areas of the abdominal pain that are localized in certain parts such as the lower right abdomen, solar plexus, right upper abdomen, can be a clue to help determine the diagnosis.
Mothers should be vigilant if the child has an upset stomach accompanied by the following complaints:
Vomiting green, yellow, brownish, such as coffee grounds, or blood Increased stomach pain High fever Continuously vomiting for 24 hours Abdominal circumference increases Diarrhea accompanied by blood Can not fart and CHAPTER Difficulty BLAK Appears rash on the skin If there are complaints above, you should immediately take your child to the doctor. To deal with abdominal pain at home, you can give your child enough water or can be replaced with soup / soup. Feed children with smaller but more frequent portions, changing the consistency of the food to be softer. Avoid soft drinks or milk if you add complaints stomach pain. Compress the abdominal area with warm water and give pain relievers such as paracetamol. Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
