Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

Nothing to worry as the fever has subsided.

The mainstay of treatment in diarrhea is to maintain hydration by giving sips of ORS like Pedialyte.

Monitoring of hydration by activity, urine output, and skin turgor is important.

Loose motions will take time of 3 to 5 days to decrease and in this period the maintenance of child hydration is important.

Probiotic like lactobacillus or saccharomyces and zinc can be added to treatment after doctor prescription.

Hope I have answered your query.
