Hi. I have a 19 month old girl and ever since she was 6 month old she has been sick back to back. It always seems to be the same kind of illness. She has headache, runny nose, sickness & diarrhoea, goes off her food, has a high temp and sometimes she has discharge from her eyes. I understand that children pick up a lot of illnesses but as a mother I just no something is not right. In the last year she has been in hospital with it 6 times and they just tell me the same thing, that its a virus she will be fine. But she's not fine. She's I'll a lot more than she's well. Please help me I just want my daughter to be able to enjoy life and not be I'll. Thank u Leeanne
My 3 1/2 year old son dribbles and spits alot. He seems to have an excess of 'fluid' which results in the dribbles and spitting. In addition to this it 'sounds' as though he has fluid in his chest. Over a period of a few weeks the fluid builds up, causes him to cough and eventually he coughs so much that he vomits the fluid up. It then starts all over again until he vomits a few weeks later. The ENT consultant had no idea, one doctor has suggested 'secretion asthma'. Another says that he holds his mouth open but that doesn't explain the chest and the vomiting. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks.
Hi I am going through exactly the same thing with my son, now 12 but he has been like this since he was a toddler. We have just been refered to a Gastroentirologist recently. He was on meds for reflux but that didn't seem to make it go completely.There is a condition called eosonophilic oesophogitis where certain trigger foods cause a delayed reaction in kids sometimes days after.They tend to have issues with eating, trouble swallowing, vomiting, coughing while eating, having to drink between mouthfuls are some of the issues. My son described it as it is like he has a door in his throat and sometimes it is open and the food goes down ok, and sometimes it shuts and the food gets stuck.He then has to induce vomitng to get the food out.He has also been running off to the loo like this since he was 4. He gets a ' look' on his face and stops eating and you can tell what is coming next. The Dts thought it might be a hiatus hernia but 2 bariums showed nothing untoward wrong.The only way to diagnose eosonophilic oesophogitis is with an endoscopy and biopsies which look for more than 50 white blood cells present in the osophogus which normally should not be there.These are caused by consuming food/ foods which the child is allergic to, but because the reaction is a delayed one it is harder to detect.The cells inflame the throat causing scarring and this causes the dysphagia ( trouble swallowing) This is what I am trying to get the Drs to check for woth my son as he is typically atopic ( allergic ) . My son has year round rhinitis, mouth breathes and many allergies including pets, dust, tree and grass pollens, foods and asthma since he was 1. Also in young children failure to thrive or being small for age, sleep difficulties, tummy aches and lots of ear/ throat infections are very common as well as what you mentioned. I hope you get some answers and us too ! It's been a long road !
