Apprenez-en davantage sur la diarrhée consécutive à un traitement antibiotique ainsi que sur les causes et les options de traitement. </p><h2>Qu’est-ce que la diarrhée due à un traitement antibiotique?</h2> <p>Environ 1 enfant sur 5 qui prend des antibiotiques souffre de diarrhée, et ce, quelque soit le type d'antibiotique. La diarrhée consécutive à un traitement antibiotique est moins courante chez les enfants de 2 ans et plus.</p> <p>Chez la plupart des enfants, cette diarrhée est bénigne. En général, elle ne nuit pas à la santé à moins que votre enfant ne soit déshydraté. Assurez-vous que votre enfant boit suffisamment de liquides. Les signes de <a href="/Article?contentid=776&language=French">déshydratation</a> comprennent une réduction de l'urine, l'irritabilité, la fatigue et la sécheresse buccale. Un enfant heureux et enjoué est un signe de bonne hydratation.</p> <p>Demandez des soins médicaux pour votre enfant s'il perd une grande quantité de liquide dans ses selles ou s'il affiche des signes de déshydratation.</p><h2>À retenir</h2> <ul> <li>La diarrhée est courante chez les enfants qui prennent des antibiotiques. Dans la plupart des cas, elle est bénigne. </li> <li>Les enfants qui souffrent d’une légère diarrhée devrait finir leur traitement antibiotique tel que prescrit. </li> <li>Assurez-vous que votre enfant boit suffisamment de liquide afin de demeurer hydraté.</li></ul><h2>Signes et symptômes associés à la diarrhée consécutive à un traitement antibiotique </h2> <p>Les selles d’un enfant qui souffre de diarrhée due à un traitement antibiotique seront molles ou aqueuses tant qu'il prend des antibiotiques. La diarrhée dure habituellement 1 à 7 jours.</p> <p>Habituellement, la diarrhée commence entre le 2e et 8e jour après le début des antibiotiques, mais peut également débuter à tout moment à partir de la journée où les premiers antibiotiques sont administrés et durer pendant quelques semaines après la fin des antibiotiques.</p><h2>Causes de la diarrhée due à un traitement antibiotique</h2> <p>Nos intestins sont remplis de millions de petites bactéries qui nous aident à digérer les aliments. Lorsqu'on utilise des antibiotiques pour se débarrasser de bactéries nuisibles qui causent des infections, ils éliminent également ces « <a href="/Article?contentid=1469&language=French">bonnes » bactéries</a>. Le processus d’élimination et de remplacement de ces bactéries dans les intestins engendre la diarrhée.</p><h3>Administration de probiotiques supervisée par un médecin</h3> <p>Les probiotiques sont des suppléments qui contiennent de « bonnes » bactéries. On effectue présentement des recherches pour déterminer si les probiotiques peuvent prévenir ou traiter la diarrhée consécutive à un traitement antibiotique. Cependant, ces recherches n’ont pas encore démontré qu'il est avantageux de les utiliser. Parlez avec votre médecin avant de donner des probiotiques à votre enfant. Cependant, vous pouvez donner à votre enfant du yogourt ou des aliments qui contiennent des probiotiques.</p> <p>N'administrez pas des médicaments à moins que votre médecin vous ait recommandé de le faire</p> <p>Ne donnez PAS de médicaments contre la diarrhée à votre enfant, comme la lopéramide (Imodium), à moins que votre médecin ne vous recommande le faire. Ces médicaments peuvent aggraver l'inflammation intestinale.</p><h2>Complications associées à la diarrhée due à un traitement antibiotique</h2><p>La déshydratation, telle que décrite plus haut, peut s’avérer dangereuse. Les bébés de moins de 1 an sont plus susceptibles de souffrir de déshydratation. Assurez-vous que votre enfant boive suffisamment de liquides pour remplacer ceux qu'il perd. Surveillez votre enfant pour détecter les signes de déshydratation, lesquels comprennent une réduction de l'urine, l'irritabilité, la fatigue et la sécheresse buccale. </p><p>Rarement, les enfants à qui l'on donne des antibiotiques peuvent souffrir d'une inflammation du gros intestin. Cela engendre :</p><ul><li> une diarrhée aiguë qui pourrait contenir du sang ou du mucus;</li><li> de la <a href="/Article?contentid=30&language=French">fièvre</a>;</li><li> des douleurs abdominales; </li><li> une extrême faiblesse. <br></li></ul><h2>À quel moment faut-il obtenir de laide médicale?</h2> <h3>Téléphonez immédiatement à votre médecin habituel si votre enfant :</h3> <ul> <li> souffre de diarrhée aiguë;</li> <li> a de la fièvre;</li> <li> a du sang dans ses selles;</li> <li> est très fatigué et ne boit pas;</li> <li> affiche des signes de déshydratation, comme une réduction de l’urine, l’irritabilité, la fatigue et la sécheresse buccale.</li></ul> <p>Si la diarrhée est aiguë, il pourrait être nécessaire de changer la prescription dantibiotiques.</p> <h3>Rendez-vous à la salle d’urgence la plus proche, ou téléphonez au 911 si votre enfant :</h3> <ul> <li> éprouve beaucoup de douleur;</li> <li> a beaucoup de sang dans ses selles;</li> <li> semble de plus en plus malade.</li></ul>
