Treat Vomiting And Diarrhea In Infants Aged 10 Months?
I want to ask, I am 10 months old, I often tell you when I get milk or sometimes I get diarrhea. Pup, the water smells weak and you often don’t want to drink milky water. Skit, how come I brought it to the midwife and I received it, but I haven’t recovered the day yet, I haven’t healed, I rarely ask for information now
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Symptoms of vomiting and diarrhea in infants can be caused by various things, including:
Milk Allergy. It is a condition in which the immune system responds excessively to milk feeding, especially cow, goat or sheep milk and causes symptoms, one of which is diarrhea.
Lactose Intolerance. Almost similar to a milk allergy, one of the symptoms is diarrhea and is triggered by consumption of milk, the difference is that in this condition, the body does not have certain substances to digest milk properly.
Viral or bacterial infection of the digestive tract. This condition is very normal, especially in children whose immune systems are still not perfect. Treatment can require antibiotics if it is caused by bacteria.
In the case of your child, we strongly recommend taking your child to a pediatrician to find out more about what condition he is actually experiencing. Your pediatrician will then ask you about the history of development, when these symptoms started and previous history of disease. If necessary, your pediatrician will take a sample of your child's stool.
In addition, in children with vomiting, one thing that parents should pay attention to is their fluid needs. Be aware that if your child looks limp, his eyes look boyish or not as usual, if the stomach is pinched, the skin from the pinching does not return immediately, as in the elderly, the child is lazy to drink, and / or has a fever because the child could be dehydrated. It would be better if you take off your child's diaper so you can find out how many times a day he has diarrhea and how much. If this happens, immediately take your child to the nearest hospital emergency room.
Meanwhile, if all this time milk has been the trigger, since your child is also 10 months old and milk is no longer the only source of nutrition, provide mineral water or other food until it is clear what condition your child is experiencing. Make sure the food and drink is clean and cooked. We wish your child a speedy recovery.
That's all, hope it helps.
