Hi Dear;
Welcome to Health care Magic,
Report is pointing towards the bacterial infection like bacillary dysentery. One should immediately go for the stool culture, and start giving empirically some antibiotic which works against gram negative bacteria. and adjust the antibiotic according to the culture report when it is available.
Hope your child will respond to this.
