Hi XXXXXX,

Thanks for writing in.

It seems that your daughter may be having Acute bacillary dysentery.

Please get a stool test done to confirm the nature of infection.

Consult your doctor and he may start antidysentery medicine with antibiotic medicine course .This will give relief from her symptoms.

Apply antibiotic cream in anal region. Give her light diet like buttermilk, curd, rice. Give her lime water juice, XXXXXXX juice.

Hope, I answered your query. If you have further query or clarification, please ask. I will be happy to help.

Wish you good health.

We had visited to a doctor, which prescribed Ziprax-100, Flagyl, Oflox, Meftal-Spas drops and ORS. We are applying Soframycin at anal area. May be we are going in right direction. PLease let us know if these are good medicines, for disease you mentioned?
