Payne in the belly is a common dysease of chyldren; it commeth eyther of woormes or of takynge colde or of evylle mylke. The sygnes thereof are too well knowen, for the chylde can not rest but cryeth and fretteth it self, and manye tymes can not make theyr uryne, by reason of wynde that oppresseth the necke of the bladder; and is knowen also by the membre in a man child whyche in this case is always styffe and pryckynge; moreover, the noyse and romblying in the guttes, hyther and thither, declareth the chylde to be greved with wynde in the bellye and colik.
