Could be due to dysentery

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on Health care magic.

I think that you should get his stool tested for routine microscopy asvwell as for presence of occult blood. If blood is present, treatment with antibiotics would be necessary. You need not worry as it should be fine after treatment.

Give him ORS (oral rehydration solution) to hydrate him properly.
