Thanks for writing in.
The most common cause of diarrhoea
in children is rotavirus
which will not be picked on a regular stool examination. This will typically peak on the 4th day after onset of symptoms and then settle down. Syrup Vizylac
is a multi vitamin supplement and cannot be expected to help resolve this condition. I think you just need to give her plenty of fluids, particularly oral rehydration solution after every stool. She needs to be given 1/2-1 glass of ORS
after every stool. It is available by the name ELECTRAL at the chemist. 1 sachet needs to be dissolved in 1 litre of water, stored in the fridge and consumed within 24 hours.
She should be fine in a couple of days. Do not give her Syrup Bacigyl
. It has an antibiotic and it is not needed at this juncture.
