As your child is having gastroenteritis you continue probiotic and oral rehydrating solutions sips by sips in equal amounts of losses to prevent dehydration and to maintain hydration and consult your Pediatrician to examine your child hydration status and to start the antibiotic if it is required depending on clinican and stool investigation correlation.
