Stomach Ache In Children Aged 6 Years?
I have a 6 year old sister. She complained about pain in her stomach even though she was a doctor and was given medicine, but she still complained about the pain.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Stomach pain can be caused by many possibilities, some of which are:
gastrointestinal disorders, for example constipation, gastrointestinal infections, food poisoning, lactose intolerance, intestinal inflammation, appendicitis, intestinal obstruction, etc.
disorders of the urinary tract, such as urinary tract infections
other causes such as injury to the abdominal muscles or internal organs due to accidents, falls, beating or kicking
The cause of your sister's stomach pain is of course you should find out first. We recommend that you bring your sister back to the pediatrician so that further examination can be done. If indeed necessary, the doctor can also recommend additional tests such as blood tests, urine examination, or ultrasound of the stomach.
For now, you can ask your parents to give pain relievers such as paracetamol to your sister according to the dosage listed on the package. You can also help by compressing the stomach with a warm compress. If your sister has difficulty eating, try giving food that is softer and easier to swallow first.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
