10 months old son is suffering from loose motion and vomiting. The child still in same stage after treatment

Sir, My son is 10 months old, he is suffering from loose motion and vomiting for past 14 days, I consulted a Peadiatrist who advised me for a motion test on the second day of loose motion. The test revealed PUS CELLS- FULL FIELD/HPF and BACTERIA- POSITIVE, after this the doctor treated the kid with MAXOFLOX, VOMIRID, ORS and the kid was given injections twice a day for two days, but for these treatment, the child is still in the same condition as he was. Further the frequency of motion is 9 to 12 times a day. Sir kindly advice.

Hello there..
welcome to healthcare magic forum..
Your child needs stool examinations to determine which bacteria is present and based on that a different antibiotic. In the mean time please give oral re hydration fluids as much as possible in order to prevent dehydration in your baby.
Hope this helps.
take care..

My mom is having some memory loss suddenly. I m talking Wednesday night she was fine and Thursday morning should couldn t remember a LOT of stuff from the last couple of months. She was in the cleanse phase of a diet she was on and she had really bad diarrhea Wednesday night. Is this just dehydration or should we be more concerned and take her to the ER? If its dehydration, will symptoms reverse? How long does in take?

i was diagnosised with thyroiditis 3 years ago. I have been on synthroid for almost 3 years. But before that, I had an infection and was placed on oral doxycycline. we have a pool and i was out in the pool all weekend with sunscreen on. Then my daughter and i went to the beach, stayed about 2 hours, walking around and sitting on the beach. no problems. then on our way home, i started to get sick, nausa and diarrhea. by the end of the night, i was having chills and teeth chattering. thought it was from dehydration, but i was hydrated through out the day. ever since then, every time i am in the sun and get a slight redness, i go through the same thing again. it has been going on for 3 1/2 years. no one seems to know what is the problem. i have been tested for lupus, and so far it has come back negagtive. I also had a ct scan to rule out carsonoid syndrom. That was negative also. I am going to be tested again in december for lupus. not sure if anyone else has anything similar to this. my doctor doesn t know where to go from here, but she keeps trying to find something by reading.... so for now, i mainly hibernate in the house on hot days. boo boo, cuz i like the sun! also something i forgot, I am on hormone replacement and it has helped with alot of the red face with being in the heat. so who knows what is the problem... any suggestions?
