welcome to hcm

thanks for the query

she is likely to be suffering from dysentery

she need antibiotics and metronidazole for 4 to 5 days

keep him well hydrated through oral rehydrating solution.Home remedies including decarbonated soda beverages, fruit juices, , and tea are not suitable for use because they have inappropriately high osmolalities owing to excessive carbohydrate concentrations, which may exacerbate diarrhea; low sodium concentrations, which may cause hyponatremia; and inappropriate carbohydrate to sodium ratios.Once rehydration is complete, food should be reintroduced while the oral electrolyte solution is continued to replace ongoing losses from stools and for maintenance. Breast-feeding should be resumed as soon as possible.50 mL/kg of the oral rehydration solution (ORS) should be given within 4 hr to patients with mild dehydration and 100 mL/kg over 4 hr to those with moderate dehydration. Supplementary ORS is given to replace ongoing losses from diarrhea or emesis. An additional 10 mL/kg of ORS is given for each stool.

keep the baby open preferably avoid diapers and keep the diaper area open to air so that it dries fast and doesn't cause a diaper rash.

econorm half sachet to be given for 2 to 3 days

take care.
