Stomachache and Nausea (Children)
Knowing that a child has a stomachache or nausea can be hard, but pain lessens within two hours in most cases. Call Doctor If: The child has a stomachache and any of the following: Pain that happens more often or gets worse Pain that moves from the belly button to the lower right of the abdomen Trouble walking because of pain No appetite for a day or longer Green or yellow vomit Symptoms of dehydration such as darker urine and fewer wet diapers Black or bloody stool Problems passing stool A rash that looks like bruises on the legs and buttocks Headache and sore throat along with stomach pain Pain when urinating Treating Symptoms of Your Child's Stomachache Have the child lie down and rest. Give clear fluids such as water or flat soda. Keep a container nearby in case the child vomits. If the child vomits more than once, watch for signs of dehydration, such as decreased urination or dry diapers, dry lips, and crying without tears.
If you think the child could be constipated, put him on the toilet. Passing a stool may ease the pain. Sit the child in warm water to help release a stool if you think the child is constipated. Avoid giving ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin), pain medicine, or laxatives.
