Is yogurt a good thing to give a 9 yr old with diarrhea?

Is yogurt a good thing to give a 9 yr old with diarrhea?

Could help...: Yogurt can help recolonize the intestinal tract with "good bacteria" after diarrhea. This is especially true if the diarrhea was brought on after taking antibiotics for an infection. It may not help, but if the 9 year old would eat it, it will not hurt. ...Read more

May be: Probiotics have not been shown to be beneficial, the commercial messages notwithstanding.

Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Drink enough water daily so that your urine is mostly colorless.
Practice safe sex.
Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

Diarrhea returned 3weeks after taking clindamycin for 5 days. Yogurt (probiotics) made diarrhea better. Possible in the case of c difficile colitis?

Diarrhea returned 3weeks after taking clindamycin for 5 days. Yogurt (probiotics) made diarrhea better. Possible in the case of c difficile colitis?

Clostridium: CDiff does have a significant relapse rate. It has to be 100% liquid in order for the lab to process the sample. Young people can tolerate symptoms much more than the elderly or ill and therefore tend to go on with the infection a lot longer before seeking treatment. It may resolve spontaneously. But better if you go to your primary, ID or GI doctor. Avoid clindamycin in the future. ...Read more

How to overcome antibiotic induced diarrhea? Some say eat yogurt others say avoid dairy. What to do? My tummy is unhappy!

How to overcome antibiotic induced diarrhea? Some say eat yogurt others say avoid dairy. What to do? My tummy is unhappy!

Stop the antibiotic: The most obvious suggestion is stop the antibiotic that is causing the diarrhea- easier said than done. The reason for abx induced diarrhea is that the drug kills not just bad germs in your body, but alsosome of the good ones, resulting in gut imbalance of bacteria. Both the suggestions made to you are helpful - the culture in yoghurt has already broken down the lactose so it's ok to eat it. ...Read more

I believe my son has good poisoning from yogurt that was left in hot car. He has stopped vomiting for 2 days but now has bloody stool. No diarrhea.?

Blood in stool can: Be various things. If associated with cramps & diarrhea, esp if fever, it could be infectious colitis and he should be seen urgently in ED or urgent care. If stool was fairly large and formed with blood at the end, he might have a fissure from over stretching the anus. If he is now eating normally and looks good, it is not urgent, but he should still be seen by his doctor soon. ...Read more

I'll be taking the Rx Clindamycin for a tooth/gum infection. What is the best way to avoid the diarrhea and stomach upset from this (yogurt?)?

Good probiotics &...: Clindmycin is an excellent choice for dental infections. While there is some risk of C.dificile, other antibiotics can cause that as well. I advise you take Sacchromyces boulaardi (sold as Florastor) and Culturelle, both widely available in pharmacies, both during and for 2 weeks after your Clindamycin. Also avoid sugar and simple starches while taking antibiotics as well. ...Read more

My son is 4 and started with diarrhea since a day ago I gave him baby percy it made it worst what can I give him?

Fluids: Usually we do not recommend medication for diarrhea in children. Most of the time, this is due to a viral illness and will pass without treatment. He needs plenty of fluids, mostly water or Pedialyte, so he does not get dehydrated. If he starts vomiting, runs a fever, has pain, or has blood in the stool, or if his diarrhea is not better in 2-3 days, see a doctor. Good luck! ...Read more
