Dr. Gopal Samdani

Vomiting Loose motion. If it?s a breastfed baby, breastfeed as and when the baby demands. It helps to restore the water lost from the body. If the baby is formula fed or above 6 months, ORS could be given. ORS packets are easily available in medical stores. If the ORS packets are not available, 1 teaspoon of sugar and equal amount of salt can be mixed in the cooled boiled water and provided after each bowel movement. This helps to restore the lost ions and water from the body.There are many underlying causes of Patient?s symptoms. Different cause needs different treatment. Specific treatment cannot be given unless we establish exact underlying cause. Advice given without doing clinical examination can be imperfect or some time harmful to patient.
