Defecate More Than 3 Times In Children?
I want to ask, my child is now 16 months old and 1 week ago he had diarrhea because there was a slight digestive disorder after being given medication the diarrhea had improved several days and the chapter frequency was as usual 2x in 1 day, but for 2 days he had the chapter can be 3 to 4x a day but the consistency is normal not runny or slimy. So how can my child still not completely recover from the diarrhea or is it still normal?
Good night. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Diarrhea is defined as a bowel movement that is more than 3 times a day with a changing consistency that is becoming more liquid can be accompanied by blood or mucus. This happens in ibis because of a number of things that might happen
Gastrointestinal infections such as by viruses or bacteria
Food intolerance contains lactose
Cow milk allergy
Toxins in food
In this condition, the actual expenditure of the chapter will help to remove toxins, especially in poisoning, but in conditions of intolerance and allergies you should avoid products that contain high lactose such as milk, cheese. In the condition of diarrhea medicine will be given to reduce symptoms and more importantly is to prevent the occurrence of lack of body fluids or dehydration because the gravity of the diarrhea condition is dehydration. Some that can be done are
Every time you urinate or vomit, you should replace it with a solution of salt sugar or ORS
Avoid foods that trigger diarrhea like milk, fermented ingredients
Eat hygienic food
Meet your nutritional needs properly
