Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

My 13 year old daughter has been suffering from vomitings and loose motions since two days. She had a fever of about 101.3 the day before yesterday. Our doctor advised her to take Oflox OZ and Sporolac DS. She has had five doses of Oflox OZ till now.

The fever has gone and the number of motions has also reduced, though still watery but she is not eating anything. Her appetite is lost and even if she eats a little she complains of nausea though she is not throwing up. I am giving her Emeset for nausea. Is this a normal stomach infection?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

It looks like she had a bad gastroenteritis. She is recovering.

Continue both these medicines for at least five days. Can add tablet Pantocid 40 mg (Pantoprazole) daily once for five days. Emeset (Ondansetron) can be taken as needed for nausea. Consult her specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and start taking the medicines with their consent.

Her appetite will slowly improve over few days.

Hydrate her well with water in various forms or lemon juice, etc.

Patient's Query

Thank you doctor,

Will do that, but I see that she gets this stomach problem every two months. Is there a medicine to improve her immunity to gastro problems?

Answered by Dr. Noushif. M

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

There is nothing specific like that.

She can have Darolac (Lactobacillus) sachet when she is symptomatic.
