The Cause Of Children Aged 6 Months Continues To Defecate?
I want to ask today my child is right for 6 months, but 2 days before my child, the chapter continues until now but his child is not fussy, as usual, it’s usually just a chapter, so what?
Good evening, thanks for the question
Acute diarrhea is bowel movements more than 3 times in 24 hours with a liquid consistency and lasts less than 1 week. Diarrhea in children can be caused by:
1. Bacterial infection
2. Viral infection
3. Parasitic infections
4. Non-infectious (eg impaired food absorption, food poisoning, allergies, intestinal movement disorders, immune disorders, eating difficulties, etc.)
In addition to the above factors, diarrhea in infants can also be caused by behavioral factors, such as:
1. Do not provide exclusive breastfeeding, providing complementary food / MPASI too early will speed up baby's contact with germs.
2. Using a milk bottle has been shown to increase the risk of diarrhea because it is very difficult to clean the milk bottle.
3. Do not apply the habit of washing hands with soap before giving milk / food, after defecation (BAB), and after cleaning the child's bowel movements.
4. Food storage is not hygienic.
In the case of diarrhea it is necessary to assess the duration of diarrhea, the frequency of diarrhea a day, the color and concentration of feces, and whether there is mucus and / blood in the stool.
Then to assess whether there is dehydration can be assessed from
vomiting, thirst, fuss, the child looks weak, decreased consciousness, last urination, fever, spasms, convulsions, bloating. If the child still appears to be active, it is unlikely that dehydration will occur. If the child is still breast milk, then the ASI should still be given and improve personal hygiene and the environment around the child.
Consult with a dojter if a child is found fever, bloody stool, eat or drink a little, very thirsty, diarrhea more often, or has not improved in 3 days.
That's all, hope you can help
