Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Diarrhea is defined as a bowel movement with a frequency of> 3 times in 24 hours and the consistency of liquid stool. There are several possibilities that can cause symptoms of acute diarrhea (lasting <1 week) in children aged 9 months, including:
Gastrointestinal infections by viruses, for example, are caused by rotavirus infections
Bacterial gastrointestinal infections, for example, are caused by infections of E. coli, Shigella, Salmonella
Parasitic gastrointestinal infections, for example, are caused by infections with amoeba, Giardia
Intolerance to substances contained in food, for example: lactose intolerance, cow's milk allergy
Side effects of certain drugs, for example, are caused by certain antibiotic infections
The most common cause of diarrhea in children is gastrointestinal infection by a virus. Diarrhea due to viral infection is self-limiting, meaning that it can recover spontaneously within a few days (generally around 1 week) without requiring special treatment. However, during diarrhea lasts, children still need to be given supportive therapy in the form of more fluid intake to replace fluids and electrolytes that are lost wasted when defecating. Therefore, parents are encouraged to continue to give milk / milk (which is not suspected of causing diarrhea symptoms) and add extra ORS fluids as much as the child wants (on demand).
In view of the suspicion that diarrhea symptoms are related to milk products that children drink, we recommend that you immediately consult your child to the doctor or pediatrician so that his condition can be immediately evaluated and treated appropriately. If diarrhea is so severe and not immediately checked by a doctor, especially if the intake of fluid is inadequate, it is feared that the child can fall into a condition of severe dehydration and shock that can be life threatening.
We recommend that you replace milk products by consulting with a pediatrician first. The doctor will assess the nutritional status and growth and development of the child so that they can advise which milk product is appropriate for their individual conditions.
