Dear Nath,hello.
Antibiotcs disturb the normal flora of useful bacteria in the intestines. These useful bacteria help in the process of digestion and absorption. When the normal flora is disturbed, it result in antibiotic induced diarrhoea. You should contact your doctor for advice about adding Probiotic along with the antibiotic.
Frequent stool will result in loss of water in stool and can result in decreased urine output. You should contact medical advice for examining your daughter and giving medicines accordingly.
