Hi Chandra Prabha Singh,
Thank you for your query,
Your child seems to have gastroenteritis and appetite will decrease with this.
Oral rehydration solutions to be given sip by sip to prevent dehydration.
Hydration should be monitored by his activity, urine output.
Consult the doctor for the examination and medication.
Hope I have answered your query.
