Children Defecate Immediately After Every Meal And Drink?
In the morning, my child aged 2 years and 1 month has not experienced the symptoms of defecation after eating or drinking. The phases are odorless and colorless.
Hello Chiemotz, thank you for empowering HealthReplies.com
Diarrhea is one of the digestive problems that makes sufferers experience symptoms of frequent bowel movements and the stools are thinner than usual. By definition diarrhea means changes in stool consistency that are more fluid than usual and occur at least 3 times in 24 hours.
So that not all liquid bowel movements are diarrhea, but if there is liquid bowel movements or changes in stool consistency that are not normal and occur 3 times in 24 hours it can be called diarrhea, or the amount or volume of stool that exceeds 200 grams per day can also be said to have diarrhea .
The cause of diarrhea in children can be caused by a variety of possibilities such as impaired intestinal absorption, for example in lactose intolerance, infection due to viruses or bacteria or parasites.
To make sure your child has diarrhea or not and the cause needs to be examined directly on your child. And need to be asked further about the complaint as if there was a change in consistency to be softer or more fluid than usual? and how many times defecation occurs in one day, then other accompanying symptoms such as fever, vomiting, decreased appetite, and the presence or absence of signs of dehydration.
Other symptoms of diarrhea include:
Weight loss. Slimy, bleeding, or containing undigested food. Fever Signs of dehydration such as: tears are absent or reduced, sunken eyes, sunken cheeks, no urine in 3 hours or more, fussy, restless. In principle, the treatment of diarrhea is to prevent dehydration, make sure your baby gets enough fluid to replace the fluid that is lost when defecating. And in children giving ORS is also highly recommended to replace lost electrolytes with liquid bowel movements.
However, if liquid stools in your baby occur more than 24 hours, and if there are signs of dehydration, high fever or body temperature more than 39 degrees, there is mucus and phlegm in the stool, or black stool, vomiting continues immediately to see a doctor at home nearest hospital or health facility.
