Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.
The treatment in diarrhea
concentrates on the following aspects:
3. Treating infection
So the mainstay of treatment is to maintain hydration of the child.
Hydration is maintained by giving sips of oral rehydration solutions like Pedialyte
, coconut water, and lemon water to replace the water and electrolyte losses in stools.
Hydration status is monitored by his activity, urine output, skin turgor, and moisture of the tongue.
Second thing is to restore gut normal flora by giving probiotics orally like lactobacillus
One or two sachets per day is enough.
You can give curd and yogurt as they contain probiotics.
Antibiotic are requires only in bacterial or protozoal causes of diarrhea, and can be started depending on clinical or investigations showing the presence.
Coming to diet, you can give home made soft diet
So continue medication as advised by your Pediatrician
and consult again if there is any problem.
Hope I have answered your query.
