hi

thanks for writing to health care magic

your baby is having gastroenteritis

majority of cases of gastroenteritis are viral origin and no antibiotics are required................antibiotics are required only if there is dysentry...............suggested by blood or mucus in stool and its assosiation with fever and pain while passing stool....tenismus................

only ORS and antiemitics are required in this condition

self medication and starting drugs without knowing the dosage would be very dangerous in children
metrogyl is prescribed in case of amoebiasis

if its a case of dysentry then we prescribe antibiotics

take care
