Question: Chronic Diarrehea Abdominal swellin

 walt25514 - Sun Feb 26, 2006 12:46 am

I am writing in regards to my three year old nephew he keeps diarrehea and his abdomen swells at times and is more noticeable when laying flat. He also often complains of his naval area hurting. His parents has voiced this concern to his pediatrician plenty times and all they have done is antibiotics. He has had no surgeries or testing done by a doctor to see what the cause may be . His current meds are singulair, zyrtec, xopenx amd pulmnicort. is there any advice you could please give me?

As a mom whose son was on pulmicort. That could be a side effect of the medication. Contact the companies that made the medications to see if it may be a side effect of any of the other medications.
