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

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 daughter is four  months she had bronchilitis  she doing better. But she still has a cough and i noticed light blood what does this mean?

Coughing blood: Go back to your doctor for reevaluation. Children should not cough blood after having bronchiolitis. My concern is something called a "superinfection, " which means one infection developing while your baby is still weak from another. Get her checked. ...Read more

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?

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.

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?

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?

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

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 more

About 3 months ago I had my gallbladder removed and now for a week my feces has been green, and its been diarrhea. Is this a problem? Or is it normal?

About 3 months ago I had my gallbladder removed and now for a week my feces has been green, and its been diarrhea. Is this a problem? Or is it normal?

Fairly normal: When the gallbladder is removed, the bile has no place to go and leaks into the colon constantly. Bile is irritating to the bowel and thus you may have loose and dis colored stool. You can have your physician try a bile binding type medication. ...Read more
