What medicine should children take for diarrhea? Be sure to eat right…

Question 1: My baby is four months old. I went to the hospital for a stool test and the doctor said it was dysentery. The baby was prescribed medicine for three days, namely: cefixime granules, montmorillonite powder, Shenqu Xiaoshi oral liquid, and Mommy\’s Love. My baby has been drinking for three days and has finished drinking the medicine. Today he still has severe diarrhea. The stool is watery with foam and milk flaps. What should I do? Dr. Cui Lixia’s answer: Just give your baby montmorillonite powder, one bag at a time, and wash it with 50 ml of water. Drink on an empty stomach and do not eat for one hour before and after taking montmorillonite. Take it for a day and see if it works, don\’t take it for the time being. If your baby has severe diarrhea, you can take montmorillonite powder once every 6 hours. This medicine is not absorbed and the only side effect is constipation. Once the baby\’s diarrhea has stopped, there is no need to take it. Question 2: My child seems to be allergic after eating mango. There are small red bumps around his mouth and it is a bit itchy. Does he need any medication? Dr. Cui Lixia’s answer: You can apply Piyanping ointment or calamine lotion, and it will heal without intervention. It may itch and make the child uncomfortable, so try not to eat mangoes. Question 3: My baby has a sniffling nose, snoring and difficulty breathing at night, cannot sleep well, tosses and turns, and has a little cough. What should I do? Dr. Cui Lixia’s answer: You can give your child ribavirin spray for nasal spray, warm towel for nose application, and add anti-sense granules or Antelope Cold Oral Liquid. If the effect is not good after 1-2 days, it is recommended to see a doctor to check blood routine and take medicine according to the infection situation.
