Consulted doctor is on vacation.. should i change the doc or wait for one more day ?
Looks like viral diarrhea - Don't worry
Hi.... Many 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.
Antibiotics like Racigyl might worsen if unnecessarily used causing antibiotic associated diarrhea. I suggest you use zinc supplements & ORS...
You need not change the doctor. You can wait unless the above mentioned danger signs develop.
Hope my answer was helpful for you. Happy to help anytime. Further clarifications and consultations on Health Care Magic are welcome.
