Thanks for writing to health care magic.

If there is blood in the stool or if there is fever or pain abdomen then we consider dysentry and start on antibiotics. Or else there is no requirement of antibiotics.

In case of large volume, multiple watery stool we start on oral rehydration solution may be required to prevent dehydration.

Monitor for signs of dehydration.
They include
1. Decreased skin turgor
2. Increasing thirst.
3. Sunken eyes.
4. Irritability.
5. Drowsiness.
6. Decreasing passage of urine.

Probiotics and Zinc syrup prescribed by your doctor help in the control of loose stool.

Vomiting should be controlled with antiemetic after prescription from your pediatrician.

Hope this helps.
Take care.
