Hi doctor,

My son is three years old. He weights 11.6 kilograms. He is given Nemocid for every six months for disinfection. What is the dose of Nemocid for him now? The previous dose was 2.5 ml. If Nemoacid is not suitable, what is the other medicine advised for him? Please help.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

You can continue to give Nemocid (Pyrantel Pamoate) and follow the dose of 2.5 ml for every six months. If he has any other symptoms like anal itching, decreased appetite, and abdominal pain, you can give Nemoacid 2.5 ml twice a week. You can also give Bandy plus. It is Albendazole, and it is a deworming medicine. You should provide 10 ml once in six months at night.

Thank you doctor,

He is reluctant to take food. Does his weight appear low for his age? Please suggest some healthy food and medicine for improving his health.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

He should be around 14 kilograms for three years. But weighing 11.6 kilograms is not too less. There is no medicine available to improve appetite. Do not worry as long as your child is healthy and playing around. He will gain weight gradually.

Thank you doctor,

He has constipation since birth. He suffers from constipation for several days in a month. He did not pass stool for three to four days. Though he passes, it smells foul. What is the medicine used for constipation?

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Change his eating habits and include lots of fluids and fruits with fibers. Avoid giving junk foods. Start using syrup Looz (Lactulose). Initially, start with 5 ml twice daily until the stools get soft and then give 5 ml once daily until the stools get soft. You can use it for weeks together. There is no issue, and it is just a stool softener.
