You have not mentioned age. If child has colic pain then colimex will help. Sudden excessive cry in healthy child in evening and between to 3 wk to 6mo. Then it is likely to be colic. But make sure there is no other disease or illness. Give medicine as adv, by doctor.

For constipation I will suggest to eat food with high fiber content like green leafy vegetables and can also eat bananas at bedtime as it is effective as a laxative and if necessary give gripe water

I am 40 years old. I had little enquiry my son 14 years old he had constipation problem from which sometimes he faces hyper acidity, stomach ache, n sometime vomiting due to hyperacidity. Pimples on his face do let know any medicine regarding this. Thanks.

For constipation, give him fibrous diet and adequate water. Encourage him to go toilet daily or may be twice in a day for developing bowel habit. Isabgol husk may be tried with plenty of water at bed time. Pimples are common at this age. Don't scratch it, apply calamine lotion and consult skin specialist.

Dear mother if your child has blood in motion it is called dysentery for that you have to give her antibiotics and of course ors and zinc are to be given. You can give her injections but if she is not vomiting then medicine can be given by mouth also. But keep on giving ors and zinc and khichri nimbupani and curd.

If the baby is active, playful and feeds well , interacts with mother and relatives who usually handle the baby, there is no need to worry or do anything if the temperature is slightly raised .Go checking if the baby feeds and is active or not
