Your daughter had suffered from E.Coli bacterial dysentery which has subsided by treatment with zenflox (ofloxacillin).
Now your daughter is not having fever and also without loose stools, no need to worry much, continue treatment for five days and stop.
I hope you understood me, get well soon.
Thank you
