Hi,
Thanks and welcome to healthcare magic.
From your investigation report we can deduce that the baby is suffering from E.coli diarrhea ,probably enterohemorrhagic E.coli infection.
Antibiotic may be known from the sensitivity report.
Ofloxacin ,Septran ,ciprofloxacin may be used empirically to trea diarrhea .
Sporolac daily by oral route for 4-5 days will help controlling diarrhea .
Zn-20 5 ml daily for 14 days to prevent diarrhea .
Cyclopam syrup gives relief from colicky pain.
Hope this reply is OK for you.
Please feel free to ask further queries if any.
