Hi Ann,

I'm Dr Chaithanya, experienced Physician attending you today.

What has he eaten before all these symptoms started that you think his lactose intolerance is causing his symptoms?

Okay. Alcohol can aggravate. But to rule out what exactly happened, he needs an ultrasound scan to get done. How intense are his gastro symptoms now?

If he still has vomiting and diarrhea, it is important to rule out infection.

Still culture is necessary and if not suspected viral gastroenteritis, antibiotic course will be started.

For now if you want to wait before going to doctor or before going to AT, I suggest to continue buscopan and add tablet loperamide now. Let him have more liquids to avoid dehydration

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
