Thanks for posting your query
Entrogermina helps restoring normal intestinal flora
It would help your child if he is not having infective diarrhea

If after 48 hours of treatment there is no response or if you find your son is dehydrated consult your doctor immediately

Hope this helps

Dear surenderkkhatri, welcome to hcm.
Enterogermina definitely is helpful to ur son. it is available in small vials which can be given to him orally. along with that, please give him plenty of fluids orally, fresh fruit juices, soups, etc. avoid spicy, oily foods.. curdrice or idly with curds and sugar would be best. added with ORS will help in replenishing the loss of electroltyes from the body as a result of loose motion.
thank you:-)
