Hello!Thanks for putting your query in XXXXXXX I am a gastroenterologist

Stool analysis is suggestive of Gastrointestinal tract infection with alpha hemolytic streptococci and proteus mirabilis for which he requires a course of antibiotics like 3rd generation cephalosporins and aminoglycoside to which both bacteria are sensitive. You may discuss his treating doctor about the dosage. Before starting antibiotics get stool culture examination also to know to which antibiotics these bacteria are sensitive. Keep his hydration level well by giving lots of fluid. Give him a course of pre and probiotic also.

I hope I have answered your query and this will help you. Remain in touch and get-well soon.
