Pediatrician 's  Response

Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

Where is the rash on her body?

The location and distribution of rash will give clue to the diagnosis.

And physical examination of the rash or looking at the pictures of rash is important in coming to a conclusion.

Coming to diarrhea, it may be due to a viral infection.

The main thing is to maintain her hydration by giving sips of oral rehydration solutions like Pedialyte, coconut water, and lemon water and monitor her hydration status from time to time.

Oral probiotics and zinc can be added after pediatrician consultation.

Hope I have answered your query.
