Brief Answer: Not needed Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for writing to health care magic. Vomiting and loose stools are usually viral in nature. Usually antibiotics are given only if there is blood in stools or if the child is toxic with persistent fever. ORS along with probiotics like bifilac are usually given. Zinc drops 20 mg once daily is recommended universally for atleast 10 days. So you can wait before starting antibiotics. Make sure your kid is passing urine atleast 6 times daily. Regards Dr Arun
