Thanks for writing to us.
Since your child has already taken that water, then if he would have got an intestinal infection then before the appearance of any symptoms we cannot start the treatment. You can only wait and watch. You can get him vaccinated for rotavirus to prevent him from recurrent diarrhea.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
