Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

Continue the medication as advised by your pediatrician.

Monitor and maintain his hydration.

Hydration can be maintained by giving sips of oral rehydration fluids such as Pedialyte, coconut water, and lemon water.

Monitor his hydration status by his activity, urine, and skin turgor.

Provide adequate rest.

If the problem persists consult the pediatrician again for the reevaluation of the child.

Hope I have answered your query.
