Good afternoon, Mr. / Mrs. Khalied. Thank you for consulting HealthReplies.com
Prolonged diarrhea experienced by the mother child is most likely related to the function of the disturbed digestive tract, some things that may be related to it are
Celiac disease is an immune disorder that arises when eating gluten (a protein from wheat). The thing that appears usually is prolonged diarrhea associated with digestive disorders, especially foods containing gluten, abdominal pain or bloating, weight loss until the developmental disorders. It requires physical and supportive tests such as blood tests, small intestine lining tests, and gluten free tests.
Lactose intolerance is a condition where enzymes are not formed which play a role in breaking down lactose sugar, for lactose is usually contained mainly in milk, yogurt. Usually symptoms such as diarrhea, nausea, bloating will appear 30 minutes to 1.5 hours after consumption containing lactose and this will disappear depending on food consumption.
Bacterial or parasitic infections will usually appear diarrhea can be accompanied by mucus and blood in bowel movements, accompanied by fever. CHAPTER that occurs usually will smell unpleasant.
Side effects from prolonged drug use can appear in the form of diarrhea for more than 2 weeks. Some drugs that can be the cause are medications for bacterial infections (antibiotics), laxatives, or stomach medications.
To find out the exact cause is needed physical examination and support such as examination of stool, blood, or examination of the intestinal lining. We recommend that you consult your child again with a pediatrician. As an initial treatment that can be done privately at home is
Sufficient fluid needs so that no fluid deficiency conditions occur
It's better to choose foods that are low in fiber
Avoid eating spicy / sour / caffeine / alcohol
Note the signs of dehydration, the child looks weak, tears do not come out, the child is very thirsty / do not want to drink, the eyes look sunken. if these symptoms are found immediately taken to the nearest hospital or health facility.
