Pain abdomen with big smelly floating stools are due to infection of the gut.
It can be due to contaminated food or water.
Please avoid out side food.
Please give him antibiotic Ofloxacin and ornidazole ,antispasmodic Dichotomise and Econorm sachets.
If it doesn't come down ,get an Ultrasound abdomen.
Wish him good health and speedy recovery.
