Thank you before waiting for the answer
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Actually it needs to be clarified first about the age of your child, because in children who are still babies, bowel movements up to 5-6x a day can still be considered normal due to eating patterns and the maturity of different digestive systems. We will try to answer with the assumption that your child has reached childhood.
In childhood, diarrhea is defined as a condition when there is an increase in the frequency of bowel movements and there is a change in feces into a liquid. Regarding your child's complaints, this condition can occur due to several possibilities, including:
Bacterial infections of the digestive system, can be due to eating foods that are not clean or lack of personal hygiene
Disorders of the bile or bile ducts
Flow disturbance in the digestive tract
Parasitic infections such as amoeba
Our advice, because you have previously checked your child at the health center but the complaint does not improve, this time you should try to see a pediatrician, because maybe the treatment requires more than just the drug you mentioned, for example antibiotics. By going directly to a pediatrician, the tendency can be better known and the handling can be more precise.
In addition, in children, no less important to note besides the cause of the diarrhea is the potential for dehydration. Children can lack fluids if diarrhea continues, which is characterized by weakness, not powered, lazy to eat and drink, pale, the skin returns slowly when pinched, urinary frequency decreases and tears do not come out when crying. If you find this, immediately take your child to the nearest hospital emergency room.
Meanwhile, maintain the cleanliness of the food and drinks it consumes, keep the hands of all family members clean, keep their nutritional intake, and consult a doctor immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
