Hi Noor,
Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.
Your child seems having infection of the gut due to some contamination.
I advise you to go for stool culture and sensitivity to detect the causative organism.
She may require antibiotic treatment to treat the infection.
Therefore I advise you to consult Pediatrician for the treatment advise.
Hope I have answered your query.
