Have high fever with cough. Why watery stool? On saline water. And what else?

My daughter is 5 years. Two weeks ago she had very high fever upto 103 for 3 days with cough which subsided but immediately followed with watery stool for two days. Fever reducers were given and saline water . Home remedy for upset stomach was given. However, the watery stool stopped but since then she passes semi soft stool everyday 2/3 times a day for almost 10 days now n complains of having stomach aches after meals. Should I go for a stool test? Please help.

Hi megna,
Yes you have to get her stools examined of parasites,giardia, amoeba,occult blood'etc
Based on the result your doctor can decide treatment.
What saline water you are giving?Hope it is oral rehydration salts which are available in sachets and you can ask your doctor about it and its usage.
All the best
