Pediatrician 's  Response
Hello sir/madam,
The way you baby has presented, mostly looks like a Rotaviral acute gastroenteritis. Powergyl consists of metronidazole which is never recommended in such type of loose motions in children. So kindly go on with the treatment given by your pediatrician, be patient and also do not forget to give plenty of fluids to the child preferably ORS. Hope your baby gets well soon. Thank you
