Q.

Tummy bug??

Morning doctor

Thank you for your reply to post 1526.

Can it be a gastro infection if his tummy only goes about 3 times a day? Its very soft, but not watery. His stomach only went once at school yesterday, he hasn’ t had fever again and is more or less back to normal. Eats, drinks, plays and sleeps as usual.

I am giving him Normaflora to settle his tummy and to protect his tummy from the antibiotics. Is this right?

Thank you.

This does not sound like a gastro infection and is probably due to antibiotics.Your son is now getting better and he is on the correct treatment.
