Customer Question

My son had bloody diarrhea and stomach cramps. We took him to a GI and are waiting on the stool results. However, we started him on oil of oregano and lemongrass tea since I read it could help. the blood is not in the diarrhea any longer and there is some thickening to the stool. However, his cramps stopped for a few days and now they are back and he's beginning to have "gas"

Customer: He feels a little nauseated, but feels better when he eats
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Doctor about your situation and then connect you two.

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

These symptoms suggest likely bacterial or parasitic infection.

Giardia, ameba, E coli, salmonella can cause such symptoms.

Antibiotic course should help.

Another possibility can be inflammatory bowel disease like Crohn's.

That will require colonoscopy for diagnosis.

Please discuss with his GI doc today.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
