Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic,
Your child is having diarrhea may be of a viral origin.
You can give sips of oral rehydrating solutions in replacement of losses of water and electrolytes in stools.
Probiotic like lactobacillus or sacharomyces sachets can be added orally once or twice daily to increase gut protectant microflora.
Zinc supplementation is helpful for 2 weeks in prescribed dosage.
Consult your Pediatrician for medical advise and the assessment.
Hope i have answered your query.

Also give lactobacillus sachet for 2 to 3 days and zinc for 14 days.
In case symptoms persist get her examined by pediatrician.
