I have six and half year old boy, and often he gets stomach pain for few seconds or a minute. When he goes for potty we noticed little pieces of white mucus attached with the stool.
This problem is seemingly persistent despite of all possible careful food and hygienic habits, e.g. boiled bottled water, proper washing of raw vegetables and fruits, blunt well-cooked meals etc.
Our Ped has suggested de-worming for the whole family, and we have done the first phase of that.
