My 3 1/2 year old daughter is doubled over in pain complaining of a tunny ache. I can only attribute it to popcorn, as this same thing happened the last two times she ate it, but I really didn't put 2 and 2 together until tonight. Is there anything that I can do to make her comfortable?

I'm not sure what you could do to help her, but how much popcorn did she eat??? Does she have gas, diarrhea, vomiting, etc. or just tummy ache?

I am sorry that your little girl is feeling so badly, I think the only thing you can do is call you pediatriction to see what meds are safe to give her. I hope that she gets to feeling better soon.

this happens to a friend of mine. he gets really really bad gas from popcorn (or just plain corn) and if he really wants it anyways he takes a charcoal pill. he gets them at the health food store the charcoal absorbs the excess gas. you can't take charcoal at the same time as meds though as it aborbs those too.

i would check with your dr. though just in case she has a corn intollerance or sounds more like an intollerance.
