Welcome to Healthcaremagic.
Hi, I am Dr Anshul Varshney , I have read your query in detail , I understand your concern.

Your child has intestinal infection, that is evident with his symptoms as well as his stool report.

In such case, i treat my patients with combination antibiotics like Ofloxacin and Ornidazole and if adequate response is not obtained in time, i switch to antibiotic injections like Amikacin.

Rest lactogen free formula to be used.

Probiotics like Bifilac are also very useful.

Please share my opinion with your doctor.

This is my personal opinion based on details available here. If you still have any other query, you may please ask me.
Stay Healthy.
