Brief Answer:
Give ORS and zinc

Detailed Answer:
Hi, thanks for using health care magic.
From your history it seems the child has viral infection diarrhea.
I would recommend you maintain his hydration by giving him oral fluids.
Continue giving him nutritious food.
Give him ORS frequently and after each stool.
Give him oral zinc syrup like zinconia 5 ml for 14 days.
If you have any other query please feel free to contact
I hope I have helped you.
Thank you
Dr. Meera kotecha
