Hello! Swarna Chinna
Thanks for posting your query in HCM.
The medicines given by your doctor contains bacteria which are good for the gut. They help in overcomming the bad bacteria which produce problems. This is going to take sometime to get normal.
I hope your child doesnt have problem of pica i.e. eating or licking dust/soil or eating papper or pencils etc.
Usually the loose motions are viral in nature but they can also be be caused by bacterail infections.
Please use Electral powder or Oral Rehydration Salts to replenish the water loss. Please take care to properly mix it in Either 1 ltr or 200ml of water, depending on the packet being used.
