Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.
Your child is having gastroenteritis
mostly due to a virus or a bacteria.
The loose motions will take time to get decreased and it may take 3 to 5 days.
The mainstay of treatment is to maintain hydration by giving sips of oral rehydration solutions like Pedialyte
, coconut water, lemon water.
Continue the medication as advised by your Pediatrician
In addition to plain water, it is better to give ORS
to replace the electrolytes which are lost in loose stools.
Addition of oral probiotic
and zinc will help to restore normal intestinal flora and to decrease the liquid content of stool.
Hope I have answered your query.
