Paediatrician

The most common cause of this complaint is due to a parasite infection called 'Giardia' [read about Giardia on Google]. This infection responds very well to treatment with a medicine called Flagyl Syrup that is given 3 times a day for 5 days. You will need a prescription for the Flagyl,so speak to your doctor.
