Hello doctor,

My son is 11 months and 25 days old. He has some gas problem for last one week. And he is not eating properly, breastfeeding is done during night and one to two times in the afternoon. He does one potty a day, sometimes four potty, and watery potties also. He releases gas very often. Potty smells very bad sometimes. Can I give Enterogermina respules twice a day for two to three days?

Our pediatric doctor prescribed it before two months and also before four months. He mostly has this type of gas problem. Is any medicine available for daily medication purpose to get rid of it?He is not gaining weight for about the last three months. He is always between 7.4 to 7.6 for the last four months. Pediatric suggest Hemsi-D drops twice a day. We are giving it for the last two months but not getting results. Kindly advice.



Welcome to icliniq.com.

I got your concern. No need to give Entrogermina (Bacillus Clausii) and Hemsi-D is tonic, is not for weight gain. At this age, he is more active than before so weight gain will be slower. Monitor his weight regularly give home food and breastfeeding. Give Albendazole, and do one stool report.

The Probable causes:


Investigations to be done:

Stool routine report.

Treatment plan:

Syrup Albendazole (200/5) 5 ml stat at night.

Regarding follow up:

Follow-up after a week.
