Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum,
You are giving too many medicines for your child. This sounds like a viral diarrhea which usually takes its own time to subside which is around 5-7 days. So give it sometime and replace the fluid losses with lots of liquids. Im sure it will become better.
Hope your child gets well soon.
