Thanks for posting your query.

Diarrhea in children is usually brought on by gastrointestinal (GI) infections caused by viruses, bacteria, or parasites. Most likely it is viral diarrhea.

The main motive of treatment is prevention of dehydration. Preventing or treating dehydration in children focuses on replacing lost fluid and electrolytes (sodium and potassium).

She might require prescription medications for tummy ache and motions. For nausea and vomiting, Domperistone can be given after consultation with the doctor. Kindly visit a Pediatrician for evaluation.

Till that time, you may try the following

1. Give over the counter lactobacillus preparation and yoghurt with meals.
2. Drink plenty of fluids, eat light, do not stay hungry but eat simple things like toast, porridge, cereals, crackers, banana, rice, etc.
3. Avoid dairy products, which can worsen diarrhea (due to a temporary state of lactose intolerance).
4. Drink more fluid (except milk or caffeinated beverages) to replace fluids lost by diarrhea.

Hope this answers your query. I will be available for follow up query.
