Hello
Stop the metronidazole.
Give some probiotic.
Go for stool routine and microscopic examination and if pus cells are found,go for stool culture and sensitivity and then give him proper antibiotic,if needed.
If stool is normal then no medicine is required and just take care of his hydration,continue probiotic and add zinc syrup in his medication.
Thanks
