Brief Answer: relax. Detailed Answer: Hi. Thanks for your query. I understand your concern. As per reports your child is having bacterial diarrhea. I suggest you to get her examined by pediatrician as he needs an antibacterial. In the meantime give oral rehydration solution sip by sip after each loose stool. Give probiotic for 2 to 3 days. Give lemonade,coconut water,boiled dal water,rice water. Monitor and maintainence of hydration is very important. Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can help further.
