My 4 month's baby stool test report having pus cells 6-10. Is it abnormal??

Suggests infection: Fecal leukocytes are not normally present in stool in healthy individuals, and if 6-10 is considered moderately elevated and suggest inflammation from infection, usually a bacterial infection such as Salmonella or Shigella or potentially Ameba. Viruses or allergy cause less reaction. Leukocytes in stool can also be associated with inflammatory bowel disease, but this is unlikely in an infant. ...Read more

See a GI doctor: It is possible this is inflammatory bowel disease, but without your full medical record, detailed history and exam and possibly endoscopy it would be impossible to accurately diagnose. Go and see somebody and ask them lots of questions. Good luck. ...Read more

My 4 month baby stool test result shown Pus cell 5-10/H.P.F and RBC 1-2/H.P.F.Do I need to worry and probiotic can be cure? Is that serious condition?

Is baby sick: It depends on why the stool test was done and how the baby is. In general, pus (WBC cells), also known as fecal leukocytes are an indication of infection. Is the baby having diarrhea or bloody stools? If so, a stool culture is usually indicated and what bugs are found determine if antibiotics are needed. Certain bugs don't need treatment. Generally NO, probiotics won't treat infection. ...Read more

Probably not: The presence of reducing substances and pus cells in small concentrations doesn't necessarily indicate infection, but it seems your doctor prescribed Taxin O just in case. EBF babies typically have soft stools that may also appear "seedy" & range from yellow to green in color. Iron supplements can make the stool darker.
