Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.
Your child is having gastroenteritis.
And the diarrhea will take some time to subside like 3 to 5 days with the prescribed medication.
In mean time you maintain the hydration of the child by giving frequent breastfeeding, sips of oral rehydration solutions like Pedialyte.
Monitor hydration by his activity, urine output, and skin turgor.
Nothing to worry, continue the medication as advised by your Pediatrician.
Hope I have answered your query.
