u should tell about his weight & height. he is in school so there may be chance of infection in school.
is these motion started since birth or lateron. is motion started after started eating food. is there any association of motion with food or milk. go for stool test , one is routine microscopy & other culture for fungus & bacterial.
is ur son eat soul (picca). give albendazole 400mg 1 tab. for 1 night & reapet after 15 days.
if ur son is malnourished, there may be chance of coeliac disease. go for tTG IgA antibody to diagnose for celaic disease. consult with pediatrician

loose stools causes more death in children, home remedy itself can prevents death. give him plenty of water in the form of tender coconut, electral powder, sporolac sachets. if the baby is less active, not feeding well then taken to hospital.

Take to pediatrician, get a check done. Ask if the doc can prescribe Sporilac for him.

Does he drink milk many times in a day, this could be milk allergy. so get tested by a doctor before it goes worse. I think i know only about this
