Treatment for abdominal pain varies according to the cause. Abdominal pain due to constipation can improve after the child drinks more, vegetables and fruit. Abdominal pain due to ear infection may improve after being given antibiotic treatment for the ear. Other abdominal pain requires surgery, for example in intussusception.
