Stomach Ache Medicine For Children Aged 4 Years?
I have gone to the nearest doctor but it has not improved my child has a stomach ache that is twisted, even crying continuously what should I do
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all you should explain in advance, since when is the stomach pain experienced by your child? Besides that, are there any other symptoms that are experienced, for example whether there is diarrhea or difficulty in the previous chapter, slimy and bloody bowel movements, nausea, vomiting, fever, disturbances when urinating (such as urinating so reduced)?
Before determining what drugs need to be given to children, of course, must be clearly known in advance the cause of the stomach pain. Some possible causes of abdominal pain in children include:
gastrointestinal infections and food poisoning constipation intussusception appendicitis or appendicitis urinary tract infections etc. If the abdominal pain occurs continuously, the child's abdomen looks bulging, the child's stomach feels hard like a board, the child experiences excessive vomiting so that he cannot drink at all, repeatedly diarrhea until you see signs of dehydration, the child's urine is reduced or the child does not urinate at all, visible mucus and blood in the stool, the child has a high fever, you should immediately take your child to the hospital and do not delay. If there are no signs of danger above, you can take your child to the pediatrician so that you can do a direct physical examination first to find the exact cause.
For now, you can give painkillers such as paracetamol for children and compress the child's stomach with warm compresses first. Keep giving drinks to children, do not let children become dehydrated. Keep a close eye on children's bowel and urinating and watch for signs of danger as mentioned above.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
