Thank you for the question.
Flatulence, vomiting, and diarrhea in children can indicate a disturbed digestive tract, for example due to infection, food malabsorption, poisoning, food allergies, intestinal inflammation, dyspepsia, and many other possibilities. Loss of fluid and excess electrolytes due to vomiting and excessive diarrhea can obviously make a child weak. It is not impossible, this weakness indicates that the child is dehydrated so it cannot be underestimated because it can lead to fatal.
If in 1-3 days after undergoing treatment as advised by your pediatrician has not shown significant improvement, you should check with a doctor or pediatrician. Not only physical examination, supporting tests such as blood tests, stool tests, or ultrasound can also be done by doctors if it is deemed necessary. In severe cases, your doctor may also encourage your child to undergo hospitalization at the hospital.
In the meantime, you should not panic first. Make the following efforts to improve your child's condition:
Only give the child the medication your doctor prescribes, don't just add or subtract the medicine
Give your child more to drink, give ORS when possible
Feed your child a little but often, prioritizing feeding that is soft and easy to digest, don't give food that contains excessive gas or fiber
Not getting used for hawking children carelessly
Let the child rest more
Hope this helps ...
