Hi Venugopal garu,

Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Your baby does not require that antibiotics. Please stop. Antibiotics are useful only when there is blood and pus in the stool along with fever. In such a scenario we call it dysentry.

Vomiting should be treated with antiemetics prescribed by your doctor.

Please prevent dehydration by giving ORS or any other fluid that contains salt and sugar.

Hope this helps.

Take care.
