Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

My 4-year-old daughter, with a weight of 12 kg has had jaundice for the last 10 days. She is on HepaMerz Syrup and Mosegor-V Syrup. What should be done more to cure her?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Jaundice in a 4-year-old child is usually viral. My advice would be to feed her every once or twice hourly despite her desire to vomit, as nutrition is the only key to faster recovery. Give her whatever she likes to eat after proper hygienic measures. Contact the hospital immediately if she is refusing her feeds or if she becomes unconscious, or if she talks incoherently. I suggest Ursodeoxycholic Acid syrup; one teaspoonful twice a day can be given. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and take the medicines with their consent.

Regards.
