good morning, firstly i would like to know the stool test reports of your child- stool routine stool for reducing substances and stool for culture sensitivity. the brand name rinifol, i am unaware of , so would like to know the generic drug i it. if the child is not feeding well or not on ors, he is bound to go into dehydration. i would like to tell you few points- try stopping cows milk and your milk, switch over to soya based milk, so the lactose intolearnt loose stolls may stop, if it is an infective cause , the condition may require antibiotics, so kinldy review with your doctor for examining and better out come. do not stop ors .
