Hi Zimwals,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Sore throat often causes children to experience a decrease in appetite. This can be caused by discomfort in the throat, such as itching, pain, or phlegm, which often worsens when swallowing food. The causes of this inflammation can vary, ranging from excessive use of the vocal cords, allergies, reflux (back up) stomach acid, to viral or bacterial infections.


Your child's stomach rumbling (referring) may be due to a lack of food intake. Milk, unlike food, tends to be digested and absorbed more quickly by the digestive tract. Therefore, the digestive tract will also be faster to empty. This can make the motility of the digestive tract to increase, so that the stomach will sound.


It could also be that a child's stomach growls due to other causes, for example:

Bowel sounds; normal as part of the digestive process
Too much gas entering the digestive tract; for example due to your child eating or breastfeeding in a hurry, while talking, crying, or also because you eat too much spicy food, coconut milk, tubers, cabbage, mustard greens.
Gastrointestinal infections, for example due to viruses, worms, or bacteria
lactose intolerance; can also be triggered by consuming too much milk
Food malabsorption
Inflammation of the intestine
Obstructive ileus (intestinal obstruction)
Drug side effects (eg laxatives), etc

How many days has your child had strep throat? Is it more than 3 days? So, are there any other complaints besides stomach rumbling that your child is experiencing, such as fever, vomiting, diarrhea, difficulty defecating, difficulty passing the wind, abdominal pain, and so on?


If the complaint has been going on for more than 3 days, or there are other complaints as mentioned above, you should check your child directly to the doctor for further evaluation. If it feels like a dangerous condition occurs, the doctor can also suggest that further tests be carried out , such as laboratories, stool cultures, X-rays, to ultrasound.


Right now, stay calm, there's no need to panic. There is no need to force the child to eat. Feed him little but often. Don't give your child too many foods that can trigger the formation of a lot of gas (as mentioned above). Give your child lots of water to drink. Limit drinking milk to 1 to 2 glasses a day. Do not get used to children snacking carelessly.


Hope it helps ya..
