In the lab test 1/160 widal test he said the symptoms of typhus, and were given a medicine for fever, diarrhea and nausea, vomiting. the fever is no longer. Only the diarrhea increased to 5x, he had woken up at night while crying his stomach as if being pulled u0026amp; BAB dark green color rather thick. Previously the stools were bright yellow + there was a little blood. Should the drug be stopped or continued?
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
There is a history of fever for 2 days, diarrhea reaches 4x per day, and a doctor's examination history with test results showing symptoms of typhus, so if your child (10 months) has already received medication, but the diarrhea is increasing then you should continue treatment until the next day . If until tomorrow or Tuesday, the condition of your child's diarrhea is still improving or still the same, then you should return control to the doctor who treats your child. Or if in one day your child's stomach pain complaints are increasing, then you should immediately consult a doctor who treats your child. Thus, the doctor will conduct an evaluation related to the development of recovery and evaluation of clinical conditions and treatment provided.
In general, the possibility of other diseases that cause diarrhea can also be done, so that doctors can also determine the cause of diarrhea in children. In addition to typhus symptoms, diarrhea and fever in children of 10 months can also be caused by several other medical conditions:
1. viral infection
2. bacterial infection
3. food allergies
4. food intolerance
Therefore, to prevent side effects from diarrhea such as dehydration, weak baby, abdominal pain, fussiness, fever, or decreased appetite for drinking; then you should plan a repeat visit to the doctor. The doctor will do a physical examination and supporting examination of your baby again. If dehydration becomes a risk, the doctor can plan inpatient treatment for the recovery of your child's body fluids. However, all of this depends on the results of the doctor's examination and evaluation, all medical decisions depend on your doctor.
For now, some efforts you can do for the treatment period, such as:
1. give fine food
2. maintain the child's body fluids
3. evaluation of possible allergies
4. give warm baby oil to your child's stomach
