Paediatrician

Your baby has all the symptoms of severe reflux. Donnatal is not the correct treatment for reflux.She needs to be on a medicine to reduce stomach acid such as Losec, together with a medicine to reduce reflux such as Motilium. I would really advise you to consult a paediatrician.

1.My 5 mth old baby has on and off Eczema,I am feeding him Nan2 , is there any indication that this formula could be the cause.My doc prescribed a
mixture of 100ml advan &  aqua cream.This is the sec time I am using it in 3 mths and know it has cortison ,will it effect my baby' s skin in any way or is it safe to use so often.What can I use after it clears, I was adv to use physiogel, do u know anything about this product or what else can I use.

2.My baby is teething and I am using Pansoral but no relieve, what else can I try that is more effective and safe.Thanks
