Colic refers to stomach cramps with accumulation of gas which worsens in the afternoon and may continue on into the night. The baby cries until or unless they can pass gas and they typically demand to be carried, jiggled, or moved about. Colic is seen as a digestive complaint in TCM pediatrics. Essentially, it is due to food stagnation. This means that food is not transformed and transported properly by the spleen qi but rather gathers and obstructs the stomach and intestines. Although human breast milk is the perfect food for human babies, even breast-fed children can develop colic.
What color is any phlegm? What treatments have already been tried and with what result? What does the child eat? What were they eating when they got ill? What else was happening when they got ill? Has the child had any fever? , etc.? The exact questions which the practitioner will ask very much depend on the major complaint. For instance, if the major complaint is vomiting of milk in a child which is still breast-feeding, then some of the questions will include: How long ago did the vomiting start?
The urethra and vaginal meatus are the front or anterior yin, while the anus is the rear, back, or posterior yin. If the external genitalia are red and moist in little girls, this indicates the presence of damp heat in the lower burner. Itching of the anterior yin indicates pinworms or trichomoniasis of the vagina. If the scrotum is unusually flaccid in little boys, this suggests kidney qi vacuity, while one-sided enlargement and downward drooping of the scrotum indicates hernia due to spleen qi vacuity.
