Abdominal pain is when your child says that his stomach hurts. It might be caused by:
Most of the time, this kind of stomachache gets better in a few hours. If your child has vomiting or diarrhea with the stomachache, your child may have the flu. Sometimes food poisoning or something more serious causes the stomachache.
If something more serious than flu causes the stomachache, the pain gets worse and doesn't go away.
Do not give medicine for stomach cramps unless you have talked with your doctor. Stay away from laxatives, painkillers, and enemas.
