H pylori in my child

Posted , 6 users are following.

If someone can give me advice in how to treat my 9yr old daughter whom has h pylori, first diagnosed last year got treated with the triple therapy uunfortunately it didn’t go, I waited five months and we treated it again with triple therapy adult form, we just got her poo results and she still has it. Dr doesn’t want to bother treating it again, I seeked few more opinions from different drs all said they won’t treat it and why did I even bother in the first place. I’m out of my wits, as from what I read on the net itcan cause problems within her gut later on. Has anyone else dealt with a similar situation.

    Hi maryjane19

    Children can pick up HPylori from their parents..perhaps you should get tested also. HPylori does not always present symptoms....
