Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

Kindly tell me the following:

1. What is colic?

2. What are the signs and symptoms?

3. What are the causes?

4. What are the remedies?

With experience, kindly tell how parents can deal with colicky babies.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Colic is abdominal discomfort or pain mostly seen in the evening in bottle-fed babies. A consolable cry which improves with particular positioning of the infant. Most of the time, the cause is not known. Mostly associated with formula feed, improper burping practices. No exact treatment remedies are available. Positioning, proper burping, various colic drops are available in the market which might be helpful.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
