Hi,

Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Monitor for signs of dehydration.
They include
1. Decreased skin turgor
2. Increasing thirst.
3. Sunken eyes.
4. Irritability.
5. Drowsiness.
6. Decreasing passage of urine.

Teething does not cause diarrhea but during this episode they put everything in their mouth which causes the infection.

If there is blood or mucus in the stool antibiotics prescribed by your doctor may be required.

ORS or any other fluid containing salt and sugar prevents dehydration.

Vomiting should be controlled by antiemetic prescribed by your doctor.
Probiotics and zinc will help.

You may contact me with further details on the following URL...........
