Hello, my daughter is 2 months and has severe loose motions with blood and mucous. The dr gave I ve cefizox for 2 days and d blood has gone but loose motions continue with less frequency. D dr has given zifi 100 and enterogermina to continue now... But loose motions haven t stopped and still have mucous. Pls suggest. Also my daughter had salmonella and septicaemia on 4th day of life. Could it be the virus wasn t cured completely or some food allergy thru me. She is exclusively BF.

Thank you for your query.

You have mentioned that the frequency of motions have come down but not stopped. It takes time for medicines to have their effect and the motions shall return to normal consistency in the next day or two. Be rest assured that it is not food allergy.

I hope I have responded to your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your daughter an early recovery.
