Brief Answer: Emeset syrup Detailed Answer: Hi Usually loose stools and vomiting takes 5 days to settle. It's usually viral unless there is blood in stools. You can continue the current medications and add zinc drops 0.5 ml once daily. You can give him breast feeds along with rice based foods. Give him plenty of rebalanz in sips every few minutes to keep him hydrated and make sire he passes atleast 6times urine. Don't worry it will settle soon. If he becomes very dull with low urine output you may need to admit him for iv fluids. Emeset syrup 3 ml thrice daily can be given for vomiting. Regards Dr Arun
