Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The content of black dyes on dates, if consumed in large quantities can indeed make the stool color become darker or blackish. Your child's previous condition of constipation (difficult bowel movements) can also make the stool harden and darker in color. However, given the condition of your child who is experiencing Dengue fever (or often called lay people with dbd, dengue hemorrhagic fever), the blackish stool color needs to be watched out also because of other more serious causes, such as gastrointestinal bleeding.
As is known, Dengue virus infection can cause a significant decrease in platelet levels. Platelets themselves are one type of blood cell whose role is important to prevent bleeding. Therefore, a decrease in platelet levels can cause patients to experience a variety of symptoms of bleeding, including gastrointestinal bleeding that is marked by blackish stool color. If not treated properly, this condition can lead to dangerous complications, for example shock (shock).
Not only that, the color of the stool can also become blackish due to excessive consumption of foods or supplements containing iron, side effects of drugs (such as bismuth salicylate), wounds in the upper gastrointestinal tract (eg esophagus, stomach, or duodenum), cirrhosis (formation of scar tissue in the liver), and so on.
We suggest that you consult directly with the doctor or pediatrician who treats your child so that a more in-depth evaluation relates to his condition. If the doctor suspects that a dangerous condition has occurred, the doctor may also recommend additional examinations, such as laboratory tests, ultrasound, endoscopy, and so on.
In the meantime, you can first do the following steps to speed up your child's recovery:
Accompany children to undergo treatment according to doctor's advice. Do not carelessly give children drugs or other products without consulting first to the doctor Give the child a lot to drink Give the child also eat, although a little, the important thing is regularly Give the child food that is easily digested, first limit spicy foods, bersantan, sour , especially those that are not hygienically treated. Let the child rest more. Hope it helps.
