Diarrhea In My Child?
I want to ask, my son, aged 1 year 10 months, has had diarrhea for 2 days with mucus and sometimes bloody stools.. in 1 day it can take 4-6 times.. It doesn’t always bleed. I was treated with fever medicine and prescribed antibiotics benzoyl metronidazole..could my child be called dysentery but I googled that dysentery was accompanied by nausea and vomiting… Meanwhile, my child did not feel nauseous at all and vomited even though he still wanted to eat not much. ..
Thanks for the question. CHAPTER that contains blood and mucus is caused by dysentery. Dysentery is an infection of the intestines that can be caused by bacteria or parasites (amoeba). This infection can occur if the patient consumes food or drink that is contaminated with the cause. In addition to causing bloody or slimy diarrhea, sufferers may also experience fever, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and decreased appetite. Symptoms experienced by patients with one another are not always the same; Not all symptoms will be experienced by the patient.
Please continue the treatment recommended by the doctor. Make sure you meet your child's food and drink needs. The risk of dysentery that can occur is dehydration, so the patient must increase fluid consumption. ORS can be used for your child to replace fluids and body salts lost from diarrhea.
I hope this information is helpful.
