Hi Mr. XXXXXXX

Thanks for posting your query.

From the description it seems that she is having some stomach infection which may be either food borne or water borne. This could be due to some viral infection also, which are rampant in this season.

The medicine given by your doctor is fine. The drug bacigyl n is an antibiotic which will help in controlling loose stools. For vomiting you need to give her anti emetic drugs if the frequency is more.

In mean time please give her plenty of liquids to drink in small quantity at a time. Give her light diet like dal-rice, curd rice, butter milk etc.

Please make sure that she takes something all the day.

Please watch for decreases in urine frequency, fever, dullness which indicates dehydration in that case you need to speak to your doctor.

Other wish she should be fine in couple of days.

I hope this answers your query, I will be glad to reply any follow up queries that you have.

Regards,
Dr.pragnesh

Hello again,

Good to hear from you again.

Diet chart are less significant in preventing infection especially in pediatric age group patients such as your granddaughter.

Infections are commonly acquired by
1. Contaminated water
2. Food eaten outside or that is not properly cooked
3. Poor hand and personal hygiene.

It is essential to take care of these factors to prevent infections.

Symptomatology of viral and bacterial is almost same. I have mentioned a few here:
1. In case of viral, patient can have mild fever, weakness, dullness, etc. Other children's in the vicinity may be infected and there is some seasonal increase in the incidence.
2. In case of bacterial infection, the fever is high grade, symptoms are more severe and usually history of some source of infection is present.

Most of the viral infections are self limiting. While bacterial infections need medical attention.
It is ideal to consult a doctor in times of infection to rule out specific bacterial infections.

Hope I answered all your questions. Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.

Wish her a speedy recovery,

Regards,
Dr.Pragnesh
