Pediatrician 's  Response
Hi dear,
Probably your child is having viral infection. They are known to cause multiple symptoms like loose stools, rash sometimes eye discharge, sometimes running nose. Apply some calamine lotion and wait 24- 48 hrs. If still persists just take her to a pediatrician.

Take care

Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

Your child seems having acute gastroenteritis which may be due to a virus.

The mainstay of treatment is to maintain hydration of the child.

Give sips of oral rehydration fluids like Pedialyte, coconut water, and lemon water.

You can give curd and yogurt.

Monitor her hydration by activity, urine output and skin turgor.

Consult your Pediatrician for further management.

Hope I have answered your query.
