Why Does A 6 Year Old Kid’s Stomach Hurt When Rubbed?
Good morning, I want to ask a child who is already 6 years old, while bathing, I wipe the stomach and say it hurts. Is there a problem or not, just holding it hurts. No nausea, vomiting, etc. Please answer yes I’m a little worried.
Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com,
Abdominal pain experienced by a person can be caused by a disturbance in the digestive system, or organs in the abdominal cavity. Abdominal pain can occur due to several possibilities, including:
Pain due to infections in related organs, infections in the digestive tract accompanied by diarrhea, infections in organs in the digestive tract such as the liver, pancreas, spleen, and others. Pain due to disorders of the stomach acid and gas balance in the digestive system. Pain due to stomach cramps such as being wrapped around due to digestive tract infections. Stomach pain due to ulcers or the presence of perforations in the digestive tract. Various characteristics of pain can also occur such as disorders of the urinary tract or reproductive system, so it is advisable to go to a doctor or pediatrician regarding your child's complaints for proper examination and management. Investigations such as blood tests / stool examination can be done in accordance with the indications after the examination.
For the time being, you can observe the child's activities, children's eating abilities, children's bowel and urinary patterns, whether there are other symptoms that accompany other than abdominal pain when rubbed, history of bumping in the abdominal area.
