    Food intolerance

    Being intolerant means that your child has a heightened sensitivity to something. This makes it hard for them to digest the food and can give rise to symptoms ranging from sickness to headaches, rashes, bloating, diarrhoea and hyperactivity. Read more →

    Hi Jordan. Nothing to worry about young man. All sounds normal to me. The bloating when you wee is your foreskin detaching from the head of your penis. This is a signal that you can start pulling back your foreskin. The best time to do this is when you take a bath as the water softens the skin. It will hurt a little bit at first but persevere and you'll be successful. Hope this helps. If you need more get back to us.

    Get your child to drink more water before food in the morning when he wakes up and try investing on natural detoxifying fruits like papaya, watermellon and include more fiber food . Consult your doctor if symptoms persist .

    We found a diaper cream in Mexico called bebe..works better than anything else for a sore bottom.

    My daughter has suffered severe stomach pains loose stools and severe bloating of the stomach. We have been under a professor at the hospital for the last 2 and half years. All they keep doing is giving her laxatives including Picolax which is a severe laxative which she is currently taking daily causing her to soil herself regularly. She is on a dairy free diet which does seem to help slightly but we seem no futher forward now than before!! he is querying coeliac disease, chron's and ibs. Think it is now time to get a second opinion.....

    my son is 9 years old, he has very rarely gone to the toilet on his own. He soiled his pants every day 3 to 4 times a day. Last year i read a book from America and it said to treat the constipation from the back passage up. In otherwords use a suppository. For the last 12 months my son has been clean,he has a supository every 3 days and within 1/2hr he goes to the toilet on his own he gets the feeling. We are now trying the lactulose to see if he gets the feeling to go on his own but everything is very positive.
