5 months old. Passing motion 8 times. Given enterogerminia vials. Passing loose motion. What can be done?

Hi My baby is almost 5 months old and he is passing semi solid motions 7-8 times a day.He is feeding on formula milk. 10 days back he was treated for dysentry and got the stool tested but everything was normal. After that his motions were liquid without any medication and now with pro-lactive Enterogerminia vials he is passing semi solid motions. Please help.
