Acute watery diarrhea
is a self limiting condition, lasting less than week.
But as you mention white pasty stool(may be it is mucus), and its indicated bacterial infection, It s need to take appropriate antibiotic, under pediatric supervision.
In Diarrhea important thing is watch for Dehydration
Sign. (low urine out put,sunken eyes, Absent tear less, drowsiness
