Alarm signs to check: Recurrent abdominal discomfort is first addressed by accompanying signs/symptoms that may localize the organ involved: vaginal discharge or bleeding, alteration in periods, pregnancy risk? Fever, nausea, vomiting, altered stool pattern, blood with stool, tenderness, distension? Painful urination, blood in urine? Recent trauma, herniations? Age (you didn't share that). See your doctor please. ...Read more
My 23 month old son has had diarrohea for 6 days now it seems to be getting worse everything he as is cumin back out is there anything i can do?
Modify diet: If the kid is cooperative, a diet of applesauce several ounces at a time, bananas an inch or two at a time, steamed rice, or pasta without sauces can often slow them down while providing some energy. I avoid regular milk & use lactose free for a week or so. If the kid is getting weak & can't keep up, he needs to be checked out. ...Read more

My son is 1 and a half he has had a fever for four weeks and hasn't gone below 99.9 I checked it and it was 101 now is 102.5 he just wants to sleep?
My 7mth old has had a temperature (102-103) for two days now. Took her to ER and was told there was nothing wrong that it was normal for babies.Is it?
No, not "normal": A fever to 102 -103 is not normal, but it may not be dangerous. It is common for babies to have fairly high fevers in response to viruses. Hopefully they did a good work up to check for bacterial causes of illness. If they did and they didn't find anything, then your baby probably has a virus and just needs time to get better. If the fever doesn't go away in the next couple days, go back! ...Read more
My 2 year old child has yellow pasty poop. What is the cause for this? He had a stomach virus recently, but he had this several weeks ago as well for about 2-3 days. It went away. And it just came back again.
Good : Good news! the only stool colors we get really concerned about are red (blood from colon), black (blood from small intestine or stomach), or white (liver is not working well). Colors such as brown, yellow, orange, green, blue, or even purple (beets) can all be normal and usually associated with diet. If he has a persistent change in his stool habits, you should contact his physician since this could be a sign of an underlying disorder, but a one-time strange stool that is not red, black or white is usually of no concern. If he is having continued diarrhea, or a change in color unrelated to diet, give his doctor a call. They may want to check his stool for bacterial, viruses, parasites, and other things to give clues as to why he is having this ongoing problem. Good luck! ...Read more
Hi dr. My husband had a bowel obstruction and had a nose tube, till 11 nov. Is it normal, that he still has stomach cramps and feel discomfortable?
Yes: Bowel obstructions are commonly caused by scar tissue from prior abdominal surgery. Many times an acute episode will resolve with nasogastric tube placement for a few days-until the patient starts passing gas or bowel movements resume. Can certainly have recurrent episodes. Sometimes it requires surgery to break up the scar tissue if the GI tract does not open up. ...Read more
My daughter is about 3 and a half months old and starting a week ago today she has been coughing. My dr said it is most likely a cold. Is this true?
Hard to say: Without knowing any more history and without being able to do a physical examination, neither i nor any physician would be in the position to disagree with the diagnosis given. Keep a close eye on your daughter. If it doesn't feel right for you as a mother, you can always get a second opinion. I hope this helps. ...Read more
My 6 year old son had an upset tummy for over 10days it smelt like sulfer now has hi temps what could it be he is still eating and drinking?
Gastroenteritis: He may be suffering from an acute gastroenteritis most if which may be due to a viral infection. You mention some stool testing already done which seems incomplete. A stool culture, rotavirus, stool for ova and parasites may be helpful. Furthermore, there may be a transitional lactose intolerance following an episode of gastroenteritis therefore you may want to try lactose free diet for a while. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My sexual desire has gone down a lot. It seems like i'm never horny. I have a great 6 month old son. I feel bad for my wife. Is this normal? Is fatigue from the baby a factor?
Maybe.: The loss of libido can arise from a number of factors of which sleep deprivation maybe one, low testosterone, depression , fatigue and anemia.
