Child feels uncomfortable passing stools. Is it ok to use one sachet of Pre Pro Kid?

Hello Doctor, My daughter is 2.2 yr old. One week back, she had high fever(102 F) after having morning snacks in her playschool(some of the other kids in her class also reported the same problem).We have immediately consulted a pediatrician who wrongly diagonised her with ear infection and prescribed Augmention DDS. Her fever settled in 2 days but she started having loose stools and after 2 days..she had blood in every stool.. we immediately stopped augmentin and consulted another pediatrician, who has started her on Secef and Enterogermina. Now her stool frequency has reduced to 4-5 in a day but she seems to cry while passing stool and she still has little blood in every stool. However, her appetite is better now but feels very uncomfortable passing stools. The doctor has asked us to change the probiotic to Pre Pro Kid.. Is it ok to use pre pro kid 1 sachet in the morining and 1 sachet in the evening and pls let me know its benefits compared to entergogermina. Could you pls suggest what can be done to prevent blood in the stools?

Pediatrician 's  Response
Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum,
Enterogermina is better. You need to continue that. She might be having rash in the perianal area which is why she must be crying while passing stools. You need to apply cream for the rash and keep area dry. Blood will take time to settle as it is a infection and it needs sometime for the medicine to act. She will be fine.

Pediatrician Dr. Nasir Mohammed's  Response
Hello, your child appears to have contracted intestinal infection with manifestations of fever and loose stools. Blood in stools implies dysentery which is usually accompanied with cramps. That probably explains her distress while passing stools. She needs a stool culture to pin point the infective agent followed by appropriate antibiotics. Pre Pro Kid is a better alternative as it contains a richer mix of agents that replenish the normal gut flora when compared to Enterogermina. Provided there are no local causes resulting in blood loss, gross blood loss will settle with the right antibiotics in a weeks time. In the meantime good fluid intake is equally important.
