Viral diarrhea will take 5 to 7 days to settle
Thanks for consulting in Health Care Magic.
It seems your kid is having acute watery diarrhea. Unless the kid's having low urine output or very dull or excessively sleepy or blood in motion or green bilious vomiting...you need not worry. It is usually viral in origin at this age. Antibiotics might worsen if unnecessarily used causing antibiotic associated diarrhea. You are already on perfect treatment. Only thing is you need to know that it will take 7-10 days to settle. Unless your kid is having any of the danger signs mentioned above...you need not worry. I suggest you continue to use zinc supplements & ORS (oral rehydration solutions)...
Hope, my answer was helpful for you. Happy to help anytime. Further clarifications and consultations on Health Care Magic are welcome. I wish your kid speedy recovery.
