Diarrhea For 3 Months At The Age Of 22 Months.?
Hello …. I have a 22-month-old child, he has diarrhea for 3 months, I have the medicine info … I already prejudiced but not yet!
The frequency of bowel movements in children and infants is generally more frequent than adults. As we get older, there is a maturation of the nervous system, both the central nerve in the brain and the peripheral nerves in the organs. This causes the frequency of bowel movements that become more regular, both the number per time per day and hour. Diarrhea is said when the frequency of bowel movements increases beyond the normal frequency, with a change in stool consistency (stool). Diarrhea can be caused by many things. Some examples of possible causes of diarrhea in children are:
Bacterial infection. Sometimes diarrhea is caused by a type of bacteria that is resistant to certain types of antibiotics, so it requires more serious treatment.
Fungal infections. Fungus can enter from food, then develop in the intestine when the immune condition decreases.
Parasitic infection. Often diarrhea caused by parasites is accompanied by abnormal mucus, blood, and color.
The effect of certain drugs. In some cases, the use of certain types of drugs, for example antibiotics, which are inappropriate and are used for a long time, can cause diarrhea.
Allergy or intolerance to a certain type of protein or carbohydrate. Often accompanied by vomiting and weight that does not go up.
Bile disorders. The intestine has a decreased ability to digest fat, so diarrhea tends to be oily.
Impaired intestinal structure. Diarrhea can also be caused by a mass in the intestine, such as a tumor, or other processes, such as diverticulitis.
Consult this matter with your pediatrician. Look for a pediatrician in a type A hospital that you trust, tell the chronology of the disease in detail, and don't switch doctors too often, because it will make it difficult to monitor the disease. The doctor may need to do a stool analysis to see possible causes of diarrhea.
Give soft foods that are easily absorbed so that the intestine does not work too heavy. Choose milk that is low in lactose (if your child drinks cow's milk). Avoid giving ingredients that have unclear contents, without knowing the true cause of diarrhea.
Hope this answer helps you. Regards.
