Stomach Ache, Diarrhea And Vomiting Of Yellow Fluid In Children?
Hello, I want to ask about my child’s stomach ache. Some days my child complained of pain in his stomach and disappeared. This morning, I had a loose bowel movement. Earlier when you were eating, you threw up a yellow liquid. Please explain about the condition of my child. Thank you
Hello Riama, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
I'm Dr. Rio will try to answer your question.
Symptoms of abdominal pain accompanied by fever, can indicate a problem in your child's digestive tract. Fever with complaints of digestive problems indicates a systemic inflammatory reaction that is most often caused by infection. But in establishing the diagnosis it is necessary to conduct a clinical examination directly by a doctor both physically and in support.
Some possible diseases that occur in your child are:
Appendicitis / appendicitis. Enterocolitis / intestinal infection. Thyfoid Fever. From some of the possibilities above, there are some similarities in symptoms such as complaints of fever and the presence of digestive disorders can be diarrhea, difficult bowel movements, nausea and vomiting. Other symptoms that are typical of some of these diseases are as follows:
Appendicitis / appendicitis there is fever accompanied by right lower abdominal pain, which arises suddenly in acute conditions. On physical examination there are signs of Mc Burney's tenderness, pain in the obturator test, and Psoas sign. A definitive diagnosis is obtained by an ultrasound examination of the abdomen that shows appendicitis inflammation. Enterocolitis / intestinal infection is inflammation that occurs in the small or large intestine. Symptoms that arise are diarrhea, fever, abdominal pain or cramps, vomiting. Physical examination does not show special symptoms, the additional examination the doctor usually recommends a complete blood test, and examination of stool / stool. Thyfoid fever (tipes) is an infection caused by Salmonella Typii bacteria. Symptoms that arise in the form of fever are usually accompanied by indigestion. On physical examination, usually an increase in bowel sounds, abdominal tenderness, and a white tongue. The best supporting check is bile culture, widal examination and complete blood can also be done. Based on the brief explanation above, I strongly recommend that you consult your child directly to the doctor considering that some of the diagnoses above cannot be established without proper physical examination and support. For now what you can do at home is:
Evaluate your child's condition, regarding the development of symptoms, the form of feces / stool, record the frequency of vomiting and bowel movements. If the fever is high, help with warm water compresses on the folds of the armpits, and you can use fever-lowering drugs, such as paracetamol. Enough rest can help restore endurance. Eat and drink enough to avoid dehydration and lack of food intake. Immediately consult your child doctor. A few answers from me, hopefully it helps.
Thank you, good luck always :)
The difference is the location of the infection.
