Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

My 13-month-old baby was diagnosed with amebiasis. I would like to know when I can give him his milk formula back and what kind of food can I feed him? He had diarrhea for three weeks, but now the diarrhea has stopped, and he is taking medication.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

You can start milk anytime. As such, there is no need to stop it entirely, but if you have, start with a small quantity and increase the amount slowly. As far as food is concerned, I suggest giving a soft diet and non-spicy food items. Yogurt, banana, potatoes, rice, etc., provide a good amount of energy. In addition, liquids such as juices (apple juice if he likes) and water should be given. I am not sure if he is still on any medication. Feel free to connect if any other queries are there.

Take care.
