Hello, I think your child is suffering from viral diarrhoea, so it might take long to recover.My sincere advise would be that you must continue with ORS i.e, oral rehydration solution ,you can make it more palatable by adding few drops of lemon,give him plenty of oral fluids ,fruit juices ,coconut water preferably to prevent K+ loss.Try to avoid milk or milk products for few days as it might aggravate.Banana would be very effective. .
