Thanks for writing to Health Care Magic.

Fever, loose stools and vomiting indicate that your kid has got a gut infection.

For fever- Paracetamol is the safest medicine. You may give it every 6 hrs. In case fever does not subside, then you may give few doses of Meftal P in between.

For vomiting- Onden can be given thrice a day or when needed.

For loose stools, Noragyl O is an antibiotic which is given when bacterial cause is suspected. Since you have started, please complete the full course for 5 to 7 days. If you had recently traveled or she had taken food from restaurants etc, its advisable that you complete the entire course of antibiotics.

You may continue with same medicines. Be sure the dose is right. And I hope you have consulted a doctor for this.

The main problem in loose stools is that children may go into dehydration if fluids are not given adequately.

Be sure that she drinks well. You may give her plain water, vegetable soups, porridge, ORS, coconut water etc.
Include Rice and Banana in her diet.
Curd in plenty will help.

You may add probiotics like Enterogermina/ Econorm sachets- once a day for five days.

If at any point of time, your daughter has the following problems, please do not hesitate to visit your doctor immediately.
- Dull/ weak
- Non stop fever/ vomiting
- Very less urine (Less than 4 to 5 times in a day)
- Fluid intake is very less
- Blood in stools

It might take a minimum of 4 to 5 days for loose stools to subside.

Hope I have answered your query.
Please do get back if you need further help.

Best wishes,
Dr. Sudha Shree.V
