Infant with loose motions, pus cells and RBC in stool test, does not have weight loss and is well fed. What should be done?

Hi Doctor.. my son is 5 months 1 week old. He is having loose motions for the past three weeks. When we did stool test , noticed that pus cells are plenty and RBCS of 3-4. Pediatrician gave probiotics in the 2nd week and in third week changed the medicines as motions did not stop. Doctor asked us to check stool culture and sensitivity test and waiting for results which will come tomorrow. Baby is active, healthy of weight 7.2 kg.. not increasing/decreasing from last three weeks. Baby is breast fed and started Nestum couple of days back. Kindly advise what to be done.

It seems that your son is having bacillary dysentery and require an antibiotic medicine course.
Now as culture and sensitivity test is done,wait for the report and after report your doctor will prescribe the appropriate antibiotic course and your son will be alright.
Ok and bye.
