Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Antibiotics may not be required in most of the loose motions. They are required in dysentry when the stool is associated with blood mucus and fever.

Majority of diarrhea are caused by viruses. They take their own time to recover. In the mean while one should maintain the hydration of the child by giving ORS or any fluid that contains sugar and salt.

You may contact me with further details on the following URL...........

In such scenario the questions are directly forwarded to me .............. and I can answer your queries regarding your kid online regularly.

Hope this helps.
Take care
