Brief Answer:
Give zinc/probiotic, observe the baby

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for asking on this platform

I have gone through the query, seen the image and do understand your concern.
I won't get worried if baby is active, playful, accepting feeds well, passing urine, there is no blood in stool or vomiting.
I suggest you to give zinc 20 mg per day for 14 days with probiotic like Bifilac, Enterogermina or Econorm once a day for 3-5 days.
Give plenty of fluids to avoid dehydration. Avoid giving milk, juices, junk food as this may precipitate the loose stool.
In most of the cases loose stool improves within 3-4 days by routine care.
If you notice any significant abnormality please consult your pediatrician immediately.

I hope this helps.
Please let me know if you have any more questions.

Hi, My 2 yr old son is suffering from stomach infection for 2 weeks now. Initially he was not given any medication except Enterogermina Oral Suspension (5ml/day) and Z&D DS 20 (1 ml/day). However, now there is mucous in his very watery smelly greenish stool. Doctor has prescribed CEFOLAC 100 (3ml twice a day for 5 days). Is it safe to use this antibiotic for a 2 year old kid?

Hello. I am currently living in XXXXXX. I have been having diarrhea for the past several days. I ve just gone to the pharmacist and was given Enterogermina (3 vials of 2 billion spores of polyantibiotic) and Debby ( nifuroxazide ). Are the right thing to be taking? The Debby seems ok but the Enterogermina makes me nervous....and if it s a antibiotic surely I d need more than three vials? Also, are there any side effects to these drugs? Thanks!
