Soft stools, fever, bad appetite. Why? Parasites?

My baby is about 13mos old. She s been having soft stools (mustard yellow, green) since last week. She have had a fever a couple of days ago that hit up to 38.7 deg Celsius (using underarm thermometer ). The fever lasted only a day. She s lively, appetite has resumed (although not enough fluids taken as she refuses to drink most of the time), and wet nappies. Still being breastfed at night and occasionally during the day whenever she wants to. I ve just noticed in her poops though that there is always a black seed-like speck/s (hard to touch) in it. Could it be parasites?

Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern for your daughter and let me tell you that the black particles that you have seen may not be the parasites and this is may be due to the viral infection and no need to worry about this just take care for hydration and no need to worry about this, take care have a nice day.
