Hello Muhamad Fauzan 99, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Change in consistency becomes more fluid or changes in the frequency of bowel movements that are more than normal more than 3 times a day, also called diarrhea. Most diarrhea occurs due to food or drinks exposed to virus, bacteria, parasites and so on.
Diarrhea also often occurs in children characterized by symptoms of CHAPTER becoming more fluid, CHAPTER frequency becoming more frequent, flatulence, nausea, vomiting and sometimes can be accompanied by signs of dehydration symptoms. Dehydration is a complication that often occurs in children, and requires immediate treatment. because in some cases dehydration can be fatal if left untreated. Therefore the most important diarrhea in children is to prevent the child from becoming dehydrated. And before severe dehydration occurs, parents need to be aware of the signs of dehydration that can occur in children, namely:
The child looks weak, not active as usual
Looks very thirsty, often drink
Mouth and dry lips
The body feels cold
Urination (BAK) becomes less frequent, less, the color becomes thick
There are no tears when crying
Decreased awareness, children tend to be sleepy or sleep continuously
As previously realized, most diarrhea is caused by infections, for example due to food exposed to viruses, bacteria or parasites. Besides diarrhea can also be caused by allergies and so on. Most diarrhea in children is caused by viruses found in exposed foods or drinks.
For the treatment of diarrhea in children in principle is to prevent dehydration. Children must get adequate intake, especially fluids from drinks and food. In addition, children also need to be given ORS fluid for rehydration and to meet fluid needs. Provide foods that are soft and easy to digest and avoid giving fibrous food. Don't give fruit juice or soda, because it will make diarrhea worse.
You should not give anti-diarrhea medication without consulting a doctor first. Because in some cases the anti-diarrhea drug mentioned can actually aggravate the condition. If the child is still getting kissed or dehydrated sufficiently and does not experience dehydration, then the patient does not worry, because if it is caused by this diarrhea virus, it can stop by itself. But again the most important thing is to monitor the child's dehydration status. If signs of dehydration are found, take the child to the doctor at the nearest health facility.
Or if the diarrhea is severe enough, for example, the frequency is very frequent, accompanied by high fever, bowel movements accompanied by blood, accompanied by vomiting. You can also take the child to the doctor for further examination and treatment.
That's all the answers from us, hopefully it's useful
