Hi doctor,

My daughter is 5 years old. Her weight is 10 kg. 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.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • The first striking point I have noted in your history is the weight of the child. 10 kg for a 5 year old is very less.
  • 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.
  • It needs to be evaluated with blood, urine and stool tests after complete physical evaluation.
  • 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.
