Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

My daughter is five years old. She had on and off pain in her stomach and a terrible smell when she farts. Please help me out in this problem. I gave her Cyclopam but was not so effective. She is currently on Colicaid.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

  1. The first striking point I have noted in your history is the weight of the child.
  2. This history coupled with the history of abdominal pain and indigestion may be indicative of a metabolic disorder or disorder associated with digestion of food.
  3. It needs to be evaluated with blood, urine and stool tests after complete physical evaluation.
  4. As of now, Cyclopam (Dicyclomine and Simethicone) is the only treatment. But, additional treatment may be required based on the results of the tests obtained and physical evaluation.
