Treatment Of Continuous Bowel Movements In Children 2 Years?
My child is 22 months old, from noon until now, chapter, what medicine is good, so it doesn’t work anymore
Diarrhea is a change in the frequency and consistency of bowel movements in children where the stools may become thinner and more frequent. This condition can arise due to several causes such as viral infections, bacterial infections, parasitic infections, allergic reactions, digestive disorders and others. This can occur due to poor hygiene, contaminated hands, eating utensils, food contaminated with germs and other causes.
The most important thing in handling diarrhea in children is to prevent dehydration where it is necessary to provide more fluids, either plain water or ORS or a solution of sugar and salt. The principle of handling diarrhea in children is not to immediately give drugs that stop diarrhea, which often stops immediately because it can cause new problems in the digestive tract. In addition to fluids, several supplements can be given to help treat diarrhea such as giving probiotics and zinc supplements. Zinc itself can be given for 10 consecutive days to treat diarrhea and prevent subsequent diarrhea, but zinc administration can make the child's stool turn green.
If diarrhea occurs continuously, is accompanied by fever, continuous vomiting, signs of dehydration, it is necessary to immediately take the child to the emergency room to get treatment, one of which is giving fluids through intravenous fluids to help rehydrate the child and nothing that can harm the child occurs. Keep giving children solid food but one that is easy to digest and does not contain fat and sugar so that the child's nutritional needs are maintained. If it is indicated that diarrhea is caused by bacteria or parasites, the doctor will give antibiotics to treat it.
