Is there something you can give a 6 year old to stop wind?

I can't get to doctors till tomorrow and 6 year old is embarrassed to go to school as he has very bad wind . He is being investigated for food intolerances; he has possible coeliacs etc. but while the slow cogs of the NHS turn he has terrible farts! And the teacher has been mentioning them which I think is well out of order and I'm seeing her on Wed to discuss, but meanwhile he is hating everyone at school noticing.

I think you need to speak to the teacher before Wednesday if she's mentioning it in class. Is she already aware that it's very likely to be down to a medical condition, and not just a 6 year old thinking that trumping in class is funny?

Yes I phoned the school and spoke to the head of lower school who passed the message on to the teacher, but I'll actually be meeting with the teacher Wed.
