Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to be clarified, what kind of stomach feels hot do you mean? Do you feel the heat outside? Or, your own child who complains that his stomach feels hot?
Children aged 2 years usually have not been able to clearly complain of discomfort in the body, including heartburn. If what you mean is that this burning sensation you observe with the touch of the stomach from the outside, then this condition is not always dangerous. The stomach can feel hot under a number of reasonable conditions, for example:
Children have a lot of activities, so that the body's heat production increases, this condition is often accompanied by children who sweat a lot. Children eat out, so that blood circulation is much focused on the digestive tract in the abdomen. hot water, or stay in certain electronic objects that emit hot temperatures, etc. To find out, if the heat in your child's stomach is dangerous or not, you try to measure his body temperature using a thermometer. Did his body temperature rise above 37.5 degrees Celsius? If it's not possible the condition is not dangerous.
However, if your child's body temperature does increase by more than 37.5 degrees Celsius, it means that your child has a fever. Fever that appears accompanied by flatulence and bowel movements may not indicate a smooth digestive tract infection (gastroenteritis), can be due to viruses, bacteria, parasites, or other microorganisms. This condition can also occur due to other causes, such as viral or bacterial infections in other organ systems, dyspepsia (increased stomach acid), food allergies, intolerance or malabsorption, intestinal inflammation, and so on.
If this fever has been experienced by your child for 3 days, or if your child has other complaints that are more severe, for example vomiting, abdominal pain, bloody bowel, etc., you should check it directly to the doctor or a pediatrician. , doctors can certainly give your child the appropriate management.
At this time, you can do the steps below:
Give your child a lot to drink Give him also eat healthy and nutritious food, if the child's appetite decreases, feed him a small portion, but often Reduce feeding first that can produce a lot of gas when digested, for example mustard greens, cabbage, tubers Avoid giving children carbonated drinks, tea, or excessive coffee Make sure the food and drinks that your child consumes are always clean If there are foods or drinks that often make your child allergic, keep your child from these foods Do a gentle massage in the baby's stomach to launch his bowel Invite children actively move and play so that digestion is smooth. Let the child get enough rest. Hope it helps, yes ...
