Hi,

Thank you for posting your query.

The symptoms you have described are suggestive of infective diarrhoea, most likely due to viral infection.

As of now, you can start symptomatic treatment- replenishing the lost fluids (with intake of juice, water, etc), use of anti-emetics to stop vomiting (ondansetron), and lomotil to stop loose stools.

You should get better in a day or two. If not, you can consult a doctor, and get the stool examination done.

I would be pleased to answer, if you have any more queries.

Wishing you good health,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM

Our two-year-old daughter has just recovered from bad flu with high fever. Today she’s had colourless stool twice and hasn’t been eating well. She’s also is very restless. She had all her hepatitis jabs at the right time. Still, we wonder if what she’s got now may be some sort of liver problem. Or is it an after-flu complication? Thanks.
