Brief Answer:
Gastroenteritis

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

It looks like he is having gastroenteritis. You can give him Tab. Loperamide 2mg twice a day for one day. It comes in chew-able tablets, tablets and syrup form. Enterogermina respules(probiotics) twice a day for 2 days, after food.

Give him plenty of fluids to maintain hydration, with water, curds, buttermilk, tender coconut water, soups, etc.

As long as it doesn't persist or has fever symptomatic treatment is sufficient otherwise will have to start with antibiotics.

I hope this answered your query.
