Hi, Thanks for visiting the site H.C.M.C.
We are here to solve your problems.
4-6 times a days shit passing is some what irritable both for child and parent.
Please note that only stool is passing that too semisolid ( liquid) so not to worry as every tests have been done.
0-3 pus cells are normal.
In this case no medicine requires but dietary attention must be. If possible sterile water every time along with bananas ( not soft or hard) , rice curd.
If, still not in control give the child "PREBIOTIC & probiotics with zinc sachets) , as this is not a medicine but it will regulate the movements of intestine which causes loose motions in this case, because there is no chances of any infections.
Good luck and best wishes for your little chap.Dr. HET
