Thanks for posting your query

The information provided points to Amoebic Collitis in you child

But because the report has 25-30 pus cells it is better you get a Culture report done

Avoid contaminated fluids to your child and see that he doesn't put any toy in his mouth

Also give him boiled and cooled water and do not feed him with a feeding bottle, instead use a bowl and spoon

Once the report is in hand give appropriate antibiotics

Hope this helps

Even finding one cyst of entamoeba histolytica is considered pathological.entamoeba coli is also not found but is less harmful.your baby has amoebic dysentery and it is better that the baby be started on anti-amoebics
