My dd (22 months) was on augmentin for an ear infect. She got sick with a virus from day care and appeared to be recovering when all of a sudden she had really bad diarrhea followed by vomiting. Turns out the antibotic was tearing up her stomach. Now she's on an antidiarrhea medicine to help with that and off the antibotic. Now she's got terrible cramps and will scream and cry as a side effect of the antidiarrhea meds. Doc says hang in there for just a few more days for everything to clear out and for her to start eating and no more diarrhea. So a few more days of cramping.
Anything I can do to help with the cramping -- all natural type remedies. Last thing I want to do is put more meds in her poor tummy. I was thinking maybe a heat pack for when it cramps? Anyone been through this? ideas?
