Hello doctor,

My 7 and a half year old son is suffering from fever (100+), loose motions and vomiting, headache, backache. He still uses a bottle for milk and once in six months we have to face this situation. Now, we firmly decided to discontinue feeding him by a bottle. Please advise medicines. He has no allergy from any medicine and his weight is about 29 kg.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

As your child is suffering from acute gastroenteritis, it is a good decision that you have decided to stop bottle feeding.

I suggest:

  1. Syrup Zinconia (Zinc acetate) 5 ml once daily for 14 days.
  2. Enterogermina (probiotic) suspension twice daily for three days.
  3. ORS (oral rehydration salts) solution as required.
  4. Syrup Ondem (Ondansetron) 5 ml SOS for controlling vomiting.
  5. Syrup Crocin DS (Paracetamol) 10 ml for each episode of fever.

Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and start taking the medicines with their consent.

Maintain hygiene. Have a soft diet.

In case you feel that the child is lethargic, not feeding adequately, not passing urine, visit a pediatrician for clinical evaluation immediately.
