Pediatrician 's  Response
Hi dear,
Tanks for your query. Loose stools might be because of infection. It will settle in another two or three days. Keep hydrating her with lots of fluids like water, butter milk, tender coconut water, rice kanji, ORS (Electral sachet). As long as she passes urine adequately nothing needs to be worried about. Her appetite will improve once she recovers from her illness.

Take care

Give darolac for 2 to 3 days.
observe for any lethargy/decreased urine output and in case you find any get her evaluated by doctor.

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

Oral rehydration solution or any other solution containing salt and sugar should be given.
Probiotics and Zinc prescribed by your doctor will be useful.

Climate change will not cause loose motions but infection by bacteria or virus causes loose motions.

Continue to ask further queries as required.
Hope this helps.
Take care.
